I am not going to watch the laceing of the beer or sip it in between perfect bottled water. Sniff if it is floral or does not fart hydrogen sulfates at me. It is another good beer to have a few of with a meal. For 4% and a American pale ale I am glad I was not overwhelmed with the hop notes. Please try it when you are in the Utah grocery markets.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber picked up at Smiths in Herriman, UT. Pours with a clear copper body and then gold edges supporting a semi creamy semi cobweb-y tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up sweet malts and some light citrus candy that seem a bit gummy bear like. The taste of this 4%-er is light and on the thin side with malt sweetness, light soft and not at all bitter citrus hops and a faint earthy hoppiness. It attempts to gain an IBU or two towards the finish. Not great but when you’re hampered by the Mormon’s and their silly beer laws, what are you gonna do?

Gold with a white head. Nice malt profile along with some hop fruitiness. Minimal bitterness, clean. Light finish. Nice.

Deep golden color out of the bottle with a huge, uncontrollable white head. Crushed grain nose with some light orange notes. Grainy malts with some coarse bread, light toast and orange peel. Long orange zest bitterness in the finish. Okay APA.

Fruity (tangerine-ish?) and floral hop flavor and aroma. Some herbal flavor in finish. Fairly sweet malt flavor, with really light bread. Nice malt flavor; could maybe use a little more of it, though.

Actually great amount of flavor for a low abv pale ale. Tons of hop character with citrus and floral notes. Malts are very subtle so the hops shine through. Enjoyed it a lot.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Single bottle purchased at a Whole Foods Market at Kimball Junction, Utah on 11/03/2012. Colour: medium orange/brown with moderate size white head. Nose: candied fruit hops (maple and chocolate with oranges, cherries and peach), light used coffee grounds. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Not as sweet as predicted by the nose. Some immediate nut...pecan maybe? Hops show some low-key fruit but pretty subdued. Some soft caramel and a soapy note. Quite highly carbonated which just never cuts it for me. Very average stuff.
