On tap at Denver Biscuit Co. Poured with a light amber color. Pretty low carbonation almost flat. Nose is really light on pine. Body is lightly bitter complemented by malt sweetness.

12oz can, from Tipsy's Liquor World in extreme western Denver.

This beer pours a hazy, medium copper amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, and overacting bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some stellar honeycombed lace around the glass as things seep away.

It smells of musty and dank pine needles, bready caramel malt, a bit of blood orange, guava, and tropical melon fruitiness, a touch of black pepper, and further understated earthy, floral, and weedy green hops. The taste is still musty and clammy, but with the hops having sneakily skipped town, leaving only an echo of rotting pine tree and muted stale citrus in its place, with some weakly biscuity bready malt taking up the flag in its sudden absence, and a bit of spicy pepper and earthy, weedy hops rounding things out.

The bubbles are fairly well sublimated, the body an adequate middleweight, and kind of pithy in its smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the bready caramel malt pulling cleanup duty for the near DOA hops.

Bleh. There is mention on the label of 'fading hops bitterness', and while I'm not sure we share the same interpretation of the concept, in the end, all that matters is that this is one bland, muted affair for the style, the overbearing musty and clammy character having no place in a worthy APA. A bit of a shame that I wasted suitcase space on this one.
