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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle, aroma of bready malts and slight grassy hops. This beer pours a light gold cloudy color with a white head. The taste is a light sweet, bready taste from the malt with a slight bitterness. Overall a decent pale ale from Park City.

Poured from a bomber thanks to Craig. This is a pleasant surprise, a great hop aroma right when I opened the bottle. The flavor is fruity, slight caramel sweetness, bready, and citrus. This is a well made pale ale. Well done Shades of Pale.
