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?

Tall can served by the very beautiful Mallorie at Iggy’s in Ogden. Faint taste of hops, wheat, citrus and pine. But who care....Mallorie was HOT!!

Pours deep golden with a big puffy off-white head, very fine lacing, excellent retention. Aromas of grapefruit, grass, bread, and dirt. Light body, dry, velvety, medium carbonation. Mildly sweet, medium bitter. Enjoyably bitter and sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Tap] Deep golden pour with a fizzy head on top. Notes of citrus and floral hops in the nose. More floral and citrus in the flavor. Mild biscuit and dry pine sap flavors are also apparent. Dry and bitter finish. Balance was OK, but they got a good amount of flavor out of this low alcohol brew. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can in Salt Lake City.
Amber pour, decent head. Citrus nose with some tangerine. Fairly light flavors -- the 4% is really hurting the beer here -- with modest bitterness late. Unimpressive though perhaps decent enough as a session IPA.

[ Can ][ 16oz ][ Cliff Rose Lodge Zion ][ $2.50 ][ Globe ][ 12.20.14 ]
>> No best before date, from refrigerator, no abv listed. Chill haze golden pour, thick large white foam with good retention and lacing. Stickier stale candy corn nose, grass. Taste is super soapy, grassy, sharply bitter biting nut skin finish. Not so bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
