This was a very solid pale ale, not too hoppy but just enough to get a few different hop flavor profiles in there. Nice color, slightly higher ABV than most pales, but nothing too extreme. Most APAs are pretty much the same, with the only difference being the exact blend of hops used. This one was tasty without being boring.

a light and very drinkable pale ale, with a great juicy hop profile and minimal grain interference. its really light in color, clear blonde with a very excited bone white head of big bubbles. it smells like tropical hops, new zealand or australian stuff, with plenty of oil and green leafy freshness. the taste is the same, hops brimming from this one, and the grain base is really light, slight cereal character, also very fresh. its juicy and refreshing, and i kind of wish the alcohol content was a little less. not because i can taste it or anything, but because i want to crush through these, its a summery flavor profile and a sixer of cans would be a nice dose if it was closer to 5% abv. i love the hops in it, and like how well carbonated it is. hoppy beer without ever being bitter, an increasingly rare commodity these days. well done again from telluride.
