3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of pale malt with citrusy hop. Itís all kind of light. Amber gold color with a frothy white head that laces as it collapses. Thin to medium body with mild, almost creamy, carbonation. The flavor is mildly malty, with floral/citrus hop. The finish isnít dry, but it isnít sweet. Floral notes abound, and there is enough bitterness to satisfy. Itís really good stuff.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex floral and earthy hops aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a clear amber color with a finger or two of slightly off-white head.
S: A pretty solid nose to this beer of pine and citrus hops with some oranges and tangerine. Quite a bit of floral and earthy hop aroma in there as well. Despite a lot of different hop aromas, the nose is quite full of malts as well with toffee and bread, perhaps some caramel.
T: Much sweeter than the nose let on with a bigger emphasis on the toffee and sweet toasted bread. Orange peel provides a nice citrus note and there is a mild pine bitterness. The floral and earthy qualities are also present.
M: On the light end of medium in terms of the body with a moderate carbonation to it.
D: I always seem to overlook Grand Teton beers, but they make some pretty solid stuff.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Toffee, grapefruit and evergreen nose. The flavor is a bit thin and leans toward the sweet side of balance, but offers nice, juicy PNW hops. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes gently bitter and dry. Very drinkable! Iíd say itís an English IPA, but the hops are all American. Reminiscent of an English IPA. Howís that? Thanks go out to Argo0 for sharing the bottles.
