3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample on tap at the Bridge in STL during RBSG. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good dots and bits of lace. Looks good considering my 1 ounce sample size. Caramel malt, light spicy hop. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Decent pale ale, but nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Bridge. Pours a clear gold-amber color with a small white head. Notes of fresh floral hops, sweet malts, herbs, straw, earth, and citrus. Aroma and flavor are pretty similar. Light-medium bodied, with crisp carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Pretty solid APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with white head, aroma is hoppy and sweet. Taste up front is citrusy hops that goes right into malt sweetness, that is a bit overwhelming and is bitter at the end. Good IPA!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head that quickly dissipates down to sparse lacing. Smells of citrus and flowers. Taste is breaddy with some nice pine resin and citrus elements.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty boring for an IPA...not much going on in the aroma or elsewhere.

Bottle. Beer of the month club. Slightly hazy amber color with a big frothy off white head. Pleasant floral and citric hops aroma with piney hint and a bit of caramelly malt. Flavor has light sweetish maltiness and quite a bit of hoppy bitterness, pretty grapefruity. Medium-bodied. A decent APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 On tap at NABA fest in Idaho Falls 2008. Grand Teton was on its home turf and they put on a nice show. Pours a light amber with a small white head. The aroma was quite sweet, citrus, bready malts, and marmalade. The taste was not that intense, but very good; light hops, some citrus and honey mix together like a breakfast pastry. Pretty nice. I enjoyed this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Vibrant golden, moderate to large white foamy head, lattice like lacing, no visible carbonation. Wet hop aroma, a touch of sweetness, but also a bit of sweat and fertilizer. Mild hop bitterness on the tongue, not as sweet as I thought it would be. Decent malt base however. Not as crisp or flavorful as I would have liked. Body and mouthfeel are fairly average. Somewhat boring finish yet clean, just mild lingering hop bitterness. No floral or citrus aspect to this IPA. More of a stronger American Pale Ale if you ask me. Thanks Ken!
