I really enjoyed this beer a few years ago but apparently didn't rate it at that time. I thought I had.
So, I just logged in to see what my rating was. I had intended to modify it downward quite a lot.
Note that, at one time, I had been drinking this fairly regularly at both tap rooms in Buena Vista where
Eddyline is located as well as in cans from my local Front Range retailer.
Then, I noticed that the Alstrom Bros also gave it a poor review, so anyhow here it is:

Look, smell: They're fine although aroma is not hop forward at all nor floral.

But, taste & feel? Nope. Something's amiss, folks. Comes across "industrial" and with a harsh aftertaste. I think
the Alstrom Bros called it "unbalanced" which is probably generous.

Personally, it's a shame because I live near their brewery for a good portion of the year.

Pours a frosty golden yellow with a medium foamy head. Head retention is modest, with good lines of lacing left behind. Tropical, citrus, and pine hop notes make up a simple, hoppy aroma. The flavor profile features tropical fruits with pineapple and mango. Citrus and pine hop notes come in as well. The pine notes stick around for a while. It remains well balanced, while still being tasty. Mouth feel is medium, filling, and a bit mouth coating. Overall, it's a nice brew. Good hop notes in both the aroma and flavor.

Served in a 12oz snifter.
