I like the appearance, you get a good vibrant gold and orange mixture of color with a head that chills around a half an inch. Hops can be sometimes there and sometimes completely devoid of them replete with stale old oxidized cardboard vibe. Can/bottle dating? Can't find it. Not my fault.

Taste has bitterness, but there is nothing descriptive going on malt or hop wise beyond that really, generic two row toasting, pale malt I guess. The alcohol is noticeable, which isn't a good thing if you're below 6% abv.

I've had some good stuff from Boulder, but I find a lot of the times you're in for an unpredicable inconsistent journey.

Pours an orange gold like color with off-white head. Floral notes galor on the nose, just a hint of grass and fruit; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some malt and hop notes, fairly balanced.
