Excellent color and aroma a sweet citrusy hoppy flavor and evidence abounds of a secondary bottle conditioning. A delicious hoppy american pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thatís what Iím talking about. 6 pack from Four Firkins in St. Louis Park MN. Bought it because it was a GABF gold medal winner for my favorite category...so I pretty much had to buy it. It did not disappoint. This is a great beer. Nice frothy 1" head and very pleasing gold color. Aroma...fresh hops...just as it should be, with a slightly fruity twist. Very pleasing texture, perfect for quaffing and enjoying it like a man should, not sipping like some wine sissy boy. The taste is incredibly fresh, bold, floral hop dominated with just the right amount of bitterness to anchor the whole thing. I concur with its gold medal standing.

Maybe Iím just feeling this one right now, but this is a full bodied IPA. I poured a bottle into my globe glass. The colorís more amber than brown. Satisfying hoppy bite. Eat my rating, haha.

Very impressed with this beer. Am not usually a giant fan of Grand Teton, but this is one of their more solid offerings. Medium body, well balanced between bready malts and floral and citrusy hops. Mouthwatering and thirst quenching at the same time.

355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Strong citrus hop aroma fills the nose, sweet and inviting. Bold strong golden colour with a light head that stays a while. The flavour is very strong and resinous in the mouth.
