BEER INFO

Colorado, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
You know those epic days that start with an idea, turn into a dare and end with a great story to tell? This is the beer for those days. Crisp and refreshing like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some. Perfect for going with the flow.

A: Pours a clear golden/yellow color. A two finger egg white head rises with good retention, and rings of spiderweb looking lace stick all the way down the glass.
S: Perfume like hops up front. Grassy, floral, herbal and zesty orange rind like. Dry cracker, and biscuit malts finish everything off. Really enjoying the nose.
T: A great balance of grassy, floral, and herbal hops with the malt character. Dry crackers, light cereal grains, and biscuit. Simple, but excellent.
M/D: A light body, with moderate carbonation. I wish this had just a bit more effervescent bite, not bad in that department though. Very clean with a nice dryness as well. So easy and enjoyable to drink. I will be going through plenty of this during the summer, but enough character that I can enjoy it any time.

Yeah, this is a great blonde ale. Perfectly simple with a load of character, and does not play down to peoples tastes just cause it is suppose to be light. This should have a much higher score here.

L: Nearly brilliant gold under a sticky 1” white foam cap that persists.
S: Lemony citrus nose with some biscuit in the background.
T: Big juicy citrus palate with lemon and orange, fruit and light biscuit.
F: Medium body and carbonation. Creamy.
O: A reasonably low alcohol pale ale loaded with flavor and easy to drink.
