3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The most exciting beer of the Squatters sampler, and probably the best thing about lots of time at the SLC airport. Yay for a beer with an aroma! There’s heaps o’ PINE in here! Some citrus as well as some cheese and funk/yeast. Plenty of flavors: some caramel and brown sugar, plenty of hop flavors adding some citrus and woody tastes. Strong finish of citrus and pine, followed by bread crust, and some burnt roast. Creamy. Strong for a pale ale to me. Very good.

12oz bottle poured clear yellow/orange color with small head. Nice hoppy aroma with some caramel. Taste was a bit watery, but a very drinkable session pale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of my favorites from Squatters. A nice spicy orange hoppy aroma. Flavors of hops and fruit. Better than most 4%’s.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a drinkable pale ale with good flavor. It was very thing on the palate but made up for it in taste. I had the 4.0 ABV version and perhaps thier normal octane version is a little better, but If i’m in a pinch this would do.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours orange\gold witha small white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, slight floral nose. The flavor is sweet, citrusy, floral, and a bitter hoppiness upfront. Good body, decent brew.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice APA; hopy citrus aroma. Nice look. This has some funky maltiness to go with the hops. An interesting beer with a bit too sandy/gritty finish.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
