Pours a clear caramel with a slight off white head. Aroma is bready, with a touch on the doughy side of things, a little herbal, a touch floral, and slight fruity essence. Flavor pretty much followed suit, but with a bit of it thinning out in the finish. A crisp, active thinner medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, I really enjoyed this session ale a lot. Nothing crazy or standout-ish, just a solid sessionable EPA that I could drink over and over. If it made it out Colorado, I am sure it would be a regular in my fridge come summertime.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel, copper, dark urine-like clear color with 1-2 fingers of khaki-white head. Plenty of foamy layered lacing on the sides. Pretty good retention on the top.

Smelled honey malts up front. Also wheat, hay and grass with a touch of lemon coming through. Honey heavy for the most part though. Faint sugary floral hops come in late.

Tasted like a lighter version than the smell. Honey, wheat, grass with bitterness on the tongue after. Fairly bland.

Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish.

Nothing special about this beer. Pretty average all around.
