Cask at the brewpub. Almost clear brownish amber, small head. Resiny from nose to finish. Some caramel and grapefruit, light-medum bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeeel. Notes of chlorine in a resiny finish.

on tap-pours an off white head and gold color. Aroma is nice sweet/citrus cascade hops. Taste is nice sweet/citrus cascade hops-some bitter/grapefruit, secondary medium malt. Nice APA, aroma better than taste. Mild carbonation.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2007
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.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at the Desert Edge with clear copper body and white head. The aroma offers up a bit of roasted malts and a good dose of pine hops. The taste is pretty roasty with malts for the style but is balanced by bitter citrus hops and pine hop resin as well as a touch of caramel. Full bold flavored brew for the style.

douglas88 (6124) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2008
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.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 This is the same amber hue as their Munich lager, but with a great head that adhered to the glass. There’s a powerful grapefruity nose. This is a superbly balanced hoppy-malted beer. Very, very good!!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2003
NABA BeerFest 03: An underhopped pale ale with a well refined body. Stands up well, but a little unbalanced.

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
On Tap – High hops aroma with a deep dark golden color. Nice IPA with a clean flavor. The hops where a surprise nice and easy drinking IPA. Nothing over the top this was the best at the brewery.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2009
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.
