UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Appearance: pours a 1” cream colored head that recedes slowly, moderate lacing. Color is cloudy orange-amber with some streaming carbonation. Aroma: citrus rind, tangerine, sweet malt. Mouthfeel: somewhat light mouthfeel with a quite dry finish. Flavor: sweet malts give way to a tangerine hop and finishes with a somewhat burnt citrus rind flavor.

this beer pours a cloudy orange with a minimal head. This beer has a medium hops flavor and mild citrus and floral tastes, aftertaste is a bit strong!!

Aside from the hazy look of this beer, I get it. it’s bottle fermented, this stuff is really really good. nice mouthfeel, lively. taste just like the name... fresh sweetness, nice balance of hops. I’d probably rather have this than a sierra nevada pale ale. just tastes more like real ingredients. no real spicyness or cooked vegitable flavors. nice job! I bought this because the bitch creek was pretty damn good. next time I see this i’m going at the whole six pack. I bought two others to taste and now they are probably going to get bad reviews. go Teton. send me some free beer for this review! Nite!

Big lacy white head with fine bubles--good structure. The head lasts a few minutes before subsiding. The color is a nice golden/pale amber color. The nose is of vegetal hops character and yeast. There is distinct hop bitterness and a malty backdrp. The hop taste clings tenaciously to the middle part of the tongue and overpowers the malt. The mouthfeel of this beer is striking--thick and rich, creamy--again indicating a good solid structure to it. The hops are much stonger on the bittering end than the bouquet end, leaving me wanting a drink of water to cleanse my tongue. I don’t have this problem with other high hop beers.

MaltOne (210) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Pours a slightly hazy copper with substantial frothy head. Flavor is bright with nice malt hops balance. Medium body. Very drinkable, yet with some complexity. 5/2/14 update - this just keeps getting better. Flavors of roasted spice, rye seeds, finishing with refreshing hops. Note, its unfiltered, so it can pour sediment and be cloudy.

12oz bottle bought in Denver and opened in San Diego into pint glass. Looks yellowish amber with a 1 and a half finger head. smells like some light spices and some floral hops. Tastes like light amber malts at first with some crisp citrus hops. Pretty good pale overall 7 of 10.

Bottle from Wilburs poured into tulip - Pours amber with a 2 finger off-white head; A sugary sweetness, malt, and a good dose of hops both grassy and floral to the nose; A sour bitterness on the initial taste with TONS of floral hops and a weird malty note; Very bitter hop aftertaste; Medium body that fades to dry; Carbonation is present but doesn’t jump out at you; Didn’t like this much at all. Sat in the cellar for a month. Pretty disappointed. No citrus at all.

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with white frothy head. Aroma is floral hops and sweet caramel malt. Taste is slightly bitter with a good balance of hops and malt. A slight aftertaste. Light sweetness. Overall not too bad.
