On draft at Nick Wilsonís Cowboy Cafe at the base of the Jackson Hole tram. Orders a clear copper with an off-white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of mandarin orange with a hint of grapefruit. Mildly carbonated mouthfeel. An easy drinking beer with flavor.

12oz can picked up at Brewforia Eagle over the weekend... Finally getting around to pouring it tonight... A generous 1" white head dies back fairly quickly.. great lacing.. the brew is clear light orange.
The nose is pretty interesting with this one.. Hop presence is both grassy/spicy and fruity.. American hoppiness with the heavy hand for an APA comes through a little bigger with a sorta tropical fruit hoppy essence, but there is still a Continental hop backbone... very interesting..
Flavor shows a light toasty malt presence.. the hops are more present with the American spectrum... Fruity/mango/minerally hops make me think of the Flintstone vitamins of my childhood..
Pretty standard light body with good carbonation.. very drinkable.. this one has tons of complexities that I havenít ever had with a standard pale ale.. I know that this was brewed for Snow King, but I hope the peeps at Snake River make this a year round beer... This is leaps and bounds better than most pale ales.
It is not too often that I rave over a standard pale ale... but this one is special.. find it while you can.
