orange tinted gold with a white head.
pnw hops are all over the nose...pale caramel maltiness, pine, citrus, earth and spice.
the flavor is the same... lots of pine-tastic hops but not overly piney. lots of citrus and malt yet it is dry and spicy.
crisp mouth feel and prickly carbonation. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3

Just came across these notes from last winter (draft at brewery): Cloudy. Rusty orange hue. Fluffy head with nice lace. Crisp and light on the tongue. Doughy, cakey, earthy malts with a burnt edge. Citrusy (orange and sugared lemon). Fair amount of bitterness, especially in the finish. A little rough around the edges, but definitely one of the best I had at Desert Edge.

On tap a few weeks back in SLC (bayou). Color was an orange-amber with an off white head. Aroma was earthy and yeasty, with a good dash of caramel and bread. Flavor was similar, and very nice as well for the style. Earthy, bready and yeasty. A bit dry. Solid beer.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2008 On tap at the Bayou. Pours a light gold with a decent white head. The aroma is strong hops-grapefruit and pine. The taste is mostly a nice bitter hops and a citrus element. Unbalanced, thin, and too weak. But overall, pretty darn good. One of Utah’s better beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale golden beer, slightly hazy with a thin white head. Nice hoppy nose. A bit of spiciness and a bit of cascade fruitiness. Some yeasty crispness. Crisp and minerally bitterness. Very lean body, but this seems to help with the drinkability. I like this... a simple, crisp, quaffable ale.
