Sample pour from 12 oz bottle is bright yellow and effervescent with ivory head. Prominent dry-hopped aroma that is citrusy, probably Cascade. Approachable malt backbone that is pale with minimal crystal). Crafted in body, malt levels and hop flavor, bitterness like a hoppy pale ale.

Pours a cloudy orange. Nice aroma of grapefruit/citrus. Not all that much going on with the taste. Some of the grapefruit comes through, but it is a pretty simple, easy drinking beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2006 Tap @ the brewery & 12 oz bottle. Clear amber/copper with large beige rocky head, nice lace. I wasn’t much impressed with the tap version for it was consumed cold, but the bottle had a nice med roast English malt flavor, with fresh hops and a touch of yeast. Fresh and clean tasting. Not very far into medium bodied, but a nice brew for the common man and with food.
I wouldn’t hesitate to drink this again.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Botttle purchased through Liquid Solutions
Appearance: yellow with a light brown hue. Loads of lacing and retention on the 2-3 finger off white crown.
Smell: Good mellow hop note (kinda like a fresh hop ale) but nothing else really.
Taste: A nice hoppy zesty intro parlaying towards a sweet pale malt middle and a slightly bitter and slightly sweet end. Not very extreme but a good session taste.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied to med/light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Not bad so that means its good!
Drinkability: 6.50% abv and an easy to approach mouthfeel makes this a session beer to me.
In a world of extreme beers this one gets buried and forgotten. But if you are in the mood for a lightly hoppy easy to drink IPA this one is for you!
Serving type: bottle

Decent, but not great. Very smooth, but lack flavors. Nice grassy aroma with hops and citrus notes. Would have like a little more bite...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a definite hazy golden orange color with a nice just slightly off white head. Aroma is sweet, slight pine, resinous and slightly dank. Non descript citrus as well. Taste is citrus pine up front. Beautiful toasty biscuity sweet malt in the middle that finishes with a nice spicy citrus note that fades into a mild pine bitterness. Really solid stuff. Body is nice, definitely medium and for a 5% ABV beer, that’s awesome.

Brewed in a pocket of the Grand Tetons near the border of Idaho and Wyoming. Another great APA / IPA added to the Top 10 Summer Dusk Drives Through the Heart of America Tour 2018.

It poured a cloudy, golden color with a tight bubbled white head that faded quickly. It had a pleasant, fresh earth aroma. It seemed light bodied, lighter than I would expect from an IPA. The hop/ malt balance was good, but both were light. Slight hop aftertaste
