Tastes of apricots and wheat. Smells sweet.

Used to be one of my absolute favorites to celebrate a a hard day of back-country skiing/ snowboarding ( did I say hard...fun as hell, I meant...hard work, as I hike to earn my turns). Anyway, I believe that I hadn't had it for about five years and it just wasn't what i remember. Good but not great.

My college roommate’s favorite brewer - they make a great session IPA too.
A: Lasting head over a deep amber body that leaves sheet lacing .
(But not consistent)

S: Too laid back. Pale malt and grassy hop, with malt dominant. A bit of corn, a bit medicinal. 3.5
T: Even handed pale ale that majors in chewy caramel malt and is balanced by a sweet, grassy, almost sun-baked prairie hop. But a bit corny and doesnt get better when it warms.

MF: Fluent, quenching, balanced by medium feel and clean, crisp finish, but slightly medicinal feel.

Seems to have lost it's air, more of a flat tire. Satisfying without being over done in any way.
