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.

Great pale. So much going on with differentiation with hops. Perfect mouthfeel and carbonation. 6% ABV perfect balance!

Awesome. I love this beer. Hop bill is awesome, such a nice stretch throughout the boil. Good additions add to the aroma, but the taste the simcoe and cascade bring the heat. Its really well thoughtout and the malty carpet, carmelly, floral dough thing going on is out of this world. Nice abv and it all gets along. Lovely

Very good, more like an IPA. Taste a lot hoppier than 60 IBUís. Smells of grassy hops and has a nice hoppy after taste.

Draft at the brewery. Why canít they decide if this is an IPA or an APA? Who cares! Beautiful textbook American ale visuals ... Dark orange and slightly opaque. Standing head. Big, entertaining floral aroma and favors, rich and full bodied. (#4635, 7/1/2012)

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! Itís a well-rounded, nicely balanced brew. Would recommend.

Here’s another beer these guys have tweaked, for the better. The beer is slightly darker than it used to be, pouring a nice copper/light amber. Seems like a bit more caramel malt may have been added. The hop nose is more apparent, too. The aroma is typical of an American style pale made in the pacific NW. Lots of grapefruit and citrus dominate, maybe a slight lemon zest, too. The malt provides enough backbone for the hops, without getting in their way. Fairly bitter, but not over the top like a lot of modern American IPA’s. Yep, could drink a few of these. Me likey.

This is a tasty good beer. The head was incredible. Nice color. Really big on the grapefruit. Definitely matches itís name of Sweetgrass.

Major-league citrus hop-bomb for a Pale Ale, and I see this brew was once labeled an IPA. Makes sense; Sweetgrass is an amazingly hop-centered pale ale, bitter yet full of grapefruit and quality herb, with just enough of a sweet backing to keep the bitterness in check. The malts offer a grainy, modest resistance to the IBUs, but this bottle is all about the greenage: from the Simcoe nose to the Cascade finish, Grand Teton has given us a deliciously over hopped Pale.
