3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprised to find this hiding at King Soopers. CO law limits supermarket beer to 3.2%ABW / 4%ABV, so this is the first IPA I’ve seen there. Pale gold, a little chill haze. Could use more aroma, but otherwise delicious. The bitterness is bracing but not overpowering. Session IPA? Love it, could drink this all day. What’s next, session imperial stout?

Tap at the SLC airport (god i hate utah’s 4% rule). bright yellow orange, small head some lacing. weak nose of hops, and pine. thin hop attack, the lack of ABV to carry flavor hurts the been, the bitterness is there, but it’s all weak sauce.

can from Whole foods park city. pours slightly orange with a thin white head. not a lot on the nose. fairly citrusy with the hops on the tongue. finishes mostly clean. Eh! It’s not really doing much for me.

pretty restrained for an ipa, though about par for the course for Utah. Nothing missing from this beer, just not enough of everything. Light citrus and pine, and perhaps a touch more malt than i’d prefer in a lighter ipa."

Pint can. Nose woody (heavy pint) with grass and strong grapefruit, caramel. Really grapefruit Pine Sol. Pours orange with a dense beige head. Taste somewhat dry, booze leaching through, medium bitterness, dull and depressing caramel bringing down the pine, citrus also needs more zing. Soapy and cleansing, touch of spice, earth. Light fizz in the otherwise fresh if heavy full body; clean and flavorful, but just so much weight here, even for low abv, can’t see these doing too well at its main job, namely refreshing.

Had a pint at the Salt Lake Airport Gordon Biersch. The beer smelt terrible, reminiscent of sour milk. Taste wasn’t much better. I couldn’t choke down but half of my pint. My guess is there is a lacto infection, hopefully they can get it cleared up ASAP.

A pretty okay IPA, though weak on the alcohol front. Lots of bitterness in the aftertaste and a sweet aroma.

16 oz can from my Utah Santa. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted pale malts, grassy hops, some herbal notes, decent low alcohol session IPA. Worked on the golf course.

Nice floral hop aroma to the nice. Orange-amber cold with a nice fluffy foamy head. To taste it is bitter with a nice American hop and malty characters that lingers for some time on your palate. Solid IPA
