COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, Northwest-style Pale Ale is a rare feat of balance: unfiltered, dry-hopped to 40 IBUs, and deliciously sessionable. Groove on this two-time Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal winner (2001 and 2002 Bitter Category). It really smoothes out the bumps.

grapefruit/pine aroma - extreme grapefruit/piney flavors - pour is a cloudy copper - overall a very nice beer but I think a bit more bitter would do well to balance this beer

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Draught sample at Squatter’s Pub & Brewery, SLC. Nice hoppy aroma, with resin and pineapple-grapefruit. Light sweetness. Reddish-amber cloudy, with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with fresh hops, grassy and ozone notes. Mild resin and fresh, but soft. Bit of carbonic tang. Finishes smooth with hardly any bitterness. Nice amount of hops without being harsh.

Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
On Tap – Deep golden color with a thin head. This had a hoppy aroma wow hard to find in Utah Hops in beer. Nice pale malt flavors with a good hop and malt balance. This was a great mouth feel and a great beer for the day. I really liked this beer.

riversideAK (6140) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2008 Grapefruit aroma. Pours hazy unfiltered orange-ish. Flavor is mostly a medium citrus hop profile. Not alot of malt backbone. Finshes dry, resiny, but a little wattery. Are all of these Utah brewers like this?

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2007
Cloudy deep golden colour. Nose is fairly hoppy with bright citrus, grapefruit over a light honeyish malt backbone. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than I’d like, but there is a solid bready malt base, lightly toasted sweetness and a crisp but light hoppy finish. Citrus and grapefruit on the back. Could use a bit of dry-hopping to punch it up, but it’s a pretty solid session ale.

12 oz. bottle, from DarkElf - thanks for this little freebie! Pours a toasty orange color, with a large white head that leaves generous lacing. Nice hoppy nose, toasty malts, citrus juice fruitiness, cookie dough, and pleasant hoppiness. Biscuity malts and orange juice, hints of pine and bitter herbs. Medium body and light carbonation.

alexanderj (3539) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2009 On tap at SLC location. Rerate. Previous rating of 3. This time I found the flavor much more flavorful; with a good amount of floral and fruit components. Bottle; Poured a very light copper; with a medium to small whitish head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and caramel malt. Good aroma. Very thin and watery. Lack of complexity; dry hopping evident, but not very flavorful. Below average for the style for me.

Draft. Copper with small head. Nice American hops aroma - citrus, pine. Taste is hoppy but has some malt balance. Palate a bit thin, but pretty good for 4.0% beer.
