3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the SLC airport. Poured a deep amber with a medium cap of off-white head. Nose was just beautiful... juicy grapefruit and pine provide a hop barrage with a nice sweet base. Sweet caramel base found in the flavor department, too... with slightly stale hoppage around it (pears and grapefruit)... medium bitterness on the palate. I really enjoyed this one.

Tap at SLC Airport Brewpub: Cloudy gold color with sticky lacing. It has a wonderful hoppy aroma of tangerines and pine with a matching hoppy taste. It has a dry finish and I think a great pale ale. Almost a mild IPA. Enjoyable!

Bottle. This one greets your nose with powerful hops and a lot of spices. Poured orange with nice head. Bitter start. Bitter finish. Mouthfeel is lively. Very unusual and different. Enjoyable to drink once you get used to the strong nose.

Orange-gold, slightly hazy, with a white head. Delightful sweet floral and fruit aroma. Strong grapefruit bitterness after a hint of fruit sweetness in the taste. Very good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Skybox sports bar in SLC. Pours a light clear copper with a small white head. Pretty nice Cascade hop aroma. Since this can only be 4%, it is like an APA Lite. Flavor has notes of grapefruit, slight pine and caramel - very light malt base. The body is expectedly on the thinner side, moderate carbonation. Not bad.

The aroma is strong. It is a mixture of hoppy, fruity and vegetable-like notes. Sweet and spicy. The flavour is round and soft and contains a rather high concentration of fruity notes. It is a rather nice brew with a mild and smooth mouthfeel.

An impessive pale ale. Quite floral and delicate yet with a full flavour.Considering it weighs in at a mere 4 per cent this is an excellent ale.

This beer leaves a strong, tangy aftertaste that is quite unpleasant. On the other hand, it has a sweet, honey-like aroma and feel that is quite unique.

(cask conditioned at the brewpub) hazy amber with a generous head. Pine hops aroma. Medium bodied with the lowish carbonation you’d expect from a cask ale. Nice hoppy flavor.
