5 Barrel Pale Ale - The 5.2% ABV beer pours copper/amber in color and is slightly cloudy. There is a small thick and creamy head that leaves considerable lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy, fruit and tropical fruit on top of a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The taste is crisp and clean, fruity hops and sweet caramel malt. The over all effect is slightly sweetened fresh sun-brewed tea with a hint of lemon. The beer drinks as well carbonated and refreshing. Delicious. My bottle is a few months old, I dream of drinking this fresh out of a tap in Fort Collins.
Double Pilsner - This 8.1% ABV beer pours a glowing yellow golden in color with a half inch of pure white foam. The aroma is fragrant, jasmine flowers, a touch of honey, and grain. The taste follows the aroma directly and finishes dry, yet sweet, with a sharp yet fleeting bitterness. The aftertaste is light bitterness and massive sweet fragrant jasmine. For a strong pilsner lager, this beer is unexpected, but very tasty.
Easy Street Wheat - This 4.6% ABV beer pours honey golden and orange, slightly hazy. There is a small foamy white head. The aroma is wheat malt, citrus fruit, grassy, a note of sour fruit. The taste is malty, citrusy, grassy, very, very tasty. An excellent beer.
Isolation Ale - This 6.1% ABV beer pours dark copper and burnt orange. There is a quarter-inch of creamy and foamy off-white head. The aroma is malty and fruity, caramel, cherries, citrus. The taste is roasted, toasted malt, nutty, with a grassy citrus note right before a somewhat bitter finish. Excellent!
Mountain Standard Double Black IPA - This 9.5% ABV beer pours dark, dark brown to black with a very short head of light brown foam. The aroma is hoppy, grapefruit and pine over a dark roasted malt that combines with the pine to become almost smokey. The taste reverses the aroma with a sweet, dark roasted malt coming in the forefront, to be followed by a fruity and then bitter finish.
