Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body supporting a tan two minute head. The aroma has some citrus hop notes, sweet malts and a bit of bread dough with a thin whiff on faint pine hops in the background. The taste seems to be what they’re after at a 4%-er. It is light and crisp and bitter with hops. It starts with a thin body and delivers grapefruit and tangerine like hoppiness and then it gets progressively more bitter to midway where a malt grainy bread dough sort of flavor surfaces along with a touch of caramel. I think this shoots and scores for a sessionable IPA. Sure its thin and lacks much depth or richness but this may be just the thing when its 110F outside.

Somewhat opaque orange yellow with decent lasting, lacing off-white foam head. Aroma is quite strong hoppy. So is taste good bitter, quite an IPA. Lasting aftertaste, turning more bitter even. (Salt Lake City 201308)

I had this beer at the brewery almost a year ago when it was still a pilot brew. It’s finally in the database. I found it super light, with a bright citrus character. Thin and light, sessionable, as designed. (#5165, 9/2012)

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle pours hazy orange with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is metallic, citrus, chemical. Flavor is sweet upfront but very offensive in the finish with way too much carbonation. Very astringent old hop flavor that was easily a drain pour.

EdInSaltLake (639) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Herbal, earthy/ashy aroma. Similar flavor--with light citrus; biscuit, light caramel; and some lingering harsh bitterness.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Rating #4. Nice little IPA, mild hops and very drinkable. (2778)

Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose. The flavor is decent: tea, marmalade, some biscuit, a bit of lemon. OK. I’ve had a ton of session beers due to living in Utah, and this fits in with the average ones.

Like their other Ales, this has almost the exact Maltiness and lack of hop profile, I believe this one uses the same English Yeast as the rest of theirs. Disappointing, to say the least.
