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.

From a can at Busboys and Poets, Washington, DC
Pours a nice golden color with a pure white head. Faint aroma of pine, fairly subdued. The taste is bitter and off-putting with a bitter whang that doesn't seem to be hoppiness. Not much hops flavor, just thin and bitter. My second try at this beer...obviously not for me.
