Nicely crafted ale from Grand Teton. Picked this up in their sampler pack at Winco Foods. Amber, with short, creamy head, sticky lacing. Piney aroma with sharp bitterness on the tongue. SHort, dry finish. Very tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 fl oz / 355ml bottle into a shaker. Served cold. Bottled on 24 April 2013.
Aroma: Citrus-y, grapefruit-y hops, with a slight pear-ish sweetness. A nice maltiness balances it out. Really quite nice!
Appearance: Translucent amber body with a rocky, creamy, off-white head. Very nice lacing.
Taste: Nice citrus hop bite on the arrival, balanced out by that good smooth malt. Very well done.
Palate: Medium-full body. Moderate-long moderately bitter finish.
Overall: What a nice find! It’s a well-rounded, nicely balanced brew. Would recommend.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper with frothy head. Sweet floral hop aroma with slight biscuity notes. Mostly malt heavy in flavor. Overly sweet caramel taste. Expected more hop flavors/bitterness. Not bad, but probably wouldn't get it again.

Draft. Great sweet malt/earthy, herbal hop balance. Well made.. Refreshing, without being heavy or alcoholic.. Good concentration for an APA. Decent finish. Good price point.. Solid everyday APA. This should be a standard everywhere. Recommended.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hazy copper color with creamy white head. Citrus aroma with malt and some spice. Flavor is biscuit-y malt with sweet citrus, the front is real bitter. It’s good but I don’t like the balance much myself.

2.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Cloudy light copper, half-inch snowy head. Amazing juicy, fruity, resiny, and barely dank hop aroma, against a backdrop of breadcrust and honey. Dry and flavorless except for disappointingly metallic and plastic tastes. I would have guessed it is organic from the overall dirty, pithy character. The beer suffers from harsh, rough bitterness befitting a maltier backbone. Stats would indicate an FG of ~1.014 (3.5P), yet the mouthfeel is thin, chalky and gritty. Hairspray and yellow grapefruit aftertaste. It smells great, but everything else really, really sucks. How the hell did they fuck up plain ol’ pale ale??
