Mountain Livin’ from Crazy Mountain Brewery at League!

 

Hello, Thursday. I think you've been waiting for Beer League. Just hanging out, going along through the day with a real desire to be... anywhere... else.

Sorry boss, can't help you. What I can do is let you take a moment from your work day (You're almost there!) and tell you about this weeks beer. Which seem like it's going to be one of those, "You're either gonna get it or you won't" kind of beers. I read a lot (loooot) of reviews and I try to sample multiple at each interval, 1-5 stars. This beer is just everywhere.

Some people are really into this beer, saying it's a prime example of exactly what a Pale Ale should be - something with enough flavor and lightness in body to maintain and interest and and interest in having more of them, like now. People use this beer as an introductory Pale Ale - as most breweries do. But as you're about to read (or read more on one of the rating sites) you'll see that it has some flavors that are really hard to pin down, and some that are on the nose.

It sounds like a vague beer to spend some time with and really figure out as much as it sounds like you want to throw it in a cooler and go floatin'.

Which we're ready to do, by the way.

From the Crazy Mountain

Our easy-drinking Pale Ale's namesake truly represents life in the mountains. The Colorado mountain lifestyle is laid back, fulfilled and relaxed. Just like the meadow scene on the can, nature is summer's backdrop for all outdoor fun: hiking, rafting, mountain biking and horseback riding.

Wow...that's all I have to say. this is beer sets the standard for pale ale's in my book. They definitely boosted the hops by adding a beautiful aroma on it. I recommend this beer to anyone getting into craft beer or anyone having trouble grasping the hop flavors. For a Pale ale this beer has a huge hop aroma with a very lite hope bite on the end. They balanced this beer right on the edge of Pale Ale and American Pale Ale (APA). No enough hop bite on the end to consider it an APA but just the right finish to make me wanna drink this all day/night. I give the guys over at Crazy Mountain Brewery Props on this one. It hits all the right spots i expect when drinking a quality craft beer.

Who dropped their Fruit-Stripe Gum in my beer! I found it!!! I loooove Crazy Mountain's stuff! Except this one. Maybe good for a Hipster's attempt to get that 'Coors light drinkin' chick into beer.' Ugh. Not a good APA. I like piney-citrus flavor in my pale ales -not old chewed up tropical fruit flavored bubble gum. Interesting at first, but, nah. Not for me.

We send out the beer every week in an email as well - some people like that more than having to go through the website or checking our facebook. So join up!
