Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, golden straw color, with a clingy, white halo of head. Nose of floral hops, juniper, and a bready backbone. Flavors are grassy and peppery forward, with berry sweet notes, herbal highlights, and a dose of dank resin. Light, crisp bodied, with a resinous and mossy aftertaste. Crisp, sharp finish.

A hazy goden with a white head. A bready aroma paired with some orange and clementine. Flavor followed suit with a bready malt base partnered with some clementine, orange, and a little earthiness/grass to provide the mild bitterness. Medium bodied, decent activity. Overall, not the best for the style, but still a decent and enjoyable enough brew. One I would drink again but won't seek out.

Poured a hazy golden color with a thick head that faded slowly and left ok lacing.

The aroma was of caramel and toast with a generous dose of citrus flavors like orange and grapefruit.

Simple, but well balanced with caramel, toast, some nutty notes and full citrus, orange zest and grapefruit juice. Nice.

Light, crisp, and refreshing. A good summertime beer.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Recommended by one of the patrons in the bar...as if I wasn't going to try it anyway. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a small, fizzy, white head; moderately carbonated. Aroma was not too strong: bready malt base, generously but carefully hopped. Grains and caramel on the palate, with a good balance of citrusy hops; slight yeastiness noticeable. Medium-bodied, crisp, and very drinkable.

On a recent trip to Fort Collins with friends, we had the opportunity to try this one on tap at the brewery. Poured a nice golden color with a small white head. Aromas of biscuit and citrusy hops. On the palate, light to medium bodied, with biscuit and citrusy hops.
