A clear coppery golden color with a creamy head. The aroma is subtle but nice. Mouthfeel is unremarkable. The flavor is smooth and robust, with a mild malty aftertaste.

The cans from my six are just like the photo here on BA except that in the red stripe at the bottom, they say Brevard, North Carolina instead of Lyons, Colorado.

12 oz can into glass mug. Amber/copper colour with a tan head and some nice lacing. Smells hoppy and citrusy. Taste has a little biscuity malt but mainly slightly bitter malt and citrus rind. Mouthfeel is fine but the bitter hop does linger as an aftertaste. Not the best I've had but certainly not bad. Prost!

As time has passed I’ve sorta moved on from this brew but, I’ll grab a pounder every once in awhile and I’m never disappointed. Its no Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but, it’ll do.

I picked up a 12-pack of cans for $15. Has a nice citrus taste that’s bitter but not overwhelming. It might not be my favorite pale ale. But it’s enjoyable and easy to drink. I’ll definitely buy it again.

Nice beer, on tap at the Suds Hut in Helena, MT. Malt up front hops in back supporting the APA designation with an overall very good feel. Everything in balance with an excellent kick but not the alcohol bite. Definitely the Colorado approach vs the MT hopes forward take (IPA) that I am used to and Like. Very nice brew.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass.

L - Pours a clear copper color with about an inch of foamy white head that leaves a decent lacing throughout the glass. Not as "pale" as expected.

S - Citrus rind, caramel, and malty with some spice and floral hops.

T - Similar to the smell, starts sweet with biscuit-y malt and caramel, bitter citrus rind, pine, some cereal grain. A nice balanced flavor.

F - Light to medium bodied, good carbonation, slightly sticky from the malty caramel, clean and slightly dry finish.

O - A decent, drinkable pale ale that isn't offensive or overpowering. A nice representation of the style.

Pours an amber with a white head. Smells of citrus, hops, sweet malt, and some fruits. Tastes of citrus zest, sweet malt, fresh mildly bitter hops, and tropical fruit. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall an incredibly good pale ale.
