The Colorado Kind has a hoppy aroma with a nice body and good balance of malt and hops flavors. The hazy brownFest has a full body and malty flavor. The Arctic Wheat is a hazy, light straw color with a sharp aroma and spicy/fruity flavor. This light-bodied brew has an interesting "herb" character. The Hummingbird Ale is an amber color with a sweet/spicy flavor and aftertaste. This one brought home the gold from the 1995 GABF. The Thunderhead Stout is opaque with a creamy dark head, roasted aroma, creamy mouthfeel, and slightly roasted but even flavor balance. The Java Porter features a hazy dark brown color, light body, chocolate aromas and flavors, and a dry, coffee-like finish. The XXX Pale Ale is a clear amber with a big body but smooth mouthfeel for such a malty and alcoholic flavor. The clear amber-colored Belgian Ale starts with strong esters and its medium body is matched to complex malty flavors. The Spinal Tap Imperial Stout offers a dark head where roasted aromas precede the dry roasted flavors of this creamy brew.
Although there's often a wait for tables, the comfortable atmosphere, 50/50 men to women crowd and the great beers make Mountain Sun worth the wait. The nachos alone will fill more than one person! T-shirts of great colorful designs are now available
