Hop Rising is a classic American Pale Ale, golden in color, packed with American hops: Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook. Super refreshing and drinkable. Formerly known as Squatter’s Hop Rising.

Not a bad pale ale. Light and golden with an ok hop bite. Very balanced, almost to the point of boringness. Tried at the Yardhouse in Las Vegas in 2014.

Bottle. Pours orange/gold with nice, heavy golden head. Aroma is funk, dough, wheat, lemon. Some orange notes and sweetness on the tongue. A nice caramel-ly tone here too. Lighter than expected and refreshing.

On tap at Battleship. Darker golden color. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor. It has a little more of a crisp and citrusy charecter. The Amarillo hops really come through.

Bottle. Pours a glassy amber with a lively body and an ample white head. Nose is orange rind soaked in grapefruit juice. Flavor is honey-soaked grapefruit, oats, and orange rind. Thick on the tongue. Good beer.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2012 Had nice light toffee scents with nice light amber color. The taste is in your face bitter with a hint of caramel.

Gription79 (2238) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Big hop nose, citrus, and floral. Noticeable diacetyl. Solid malt notes with a great balancing hops. Really not digging the diacetyl.

On tap. Pours a light ruby color with a large creamy canvas head. Notes of apricots, caramel sugar, and sweet breads. Very well balanced and not overly astringent. Me gusta.

0.5 L - cask version served at the downtown SLC brewery - labeled at "Crest Trail" pale ale, but according to RB it is an alias of hop riot - pours a faintly hazy medium yellow color with smallish pure white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma has some citrusy hops, notes of pear, apple, and raspberry, faint note of lightly toasted malt. Flavor is mildly hoppy, bit of malt and touch of light caramel. Finish is just to the bitter side of malty. Palate is a bit watery (not sure if this is at all affected by being the cask version). This is overall alright. The fruityness in the aroma seems a bit out of place, but again this may be affected by being on cask. I wouldn’t run out for another one of these, but it is decent.
