Botlle, at GBBF 2005. Gold, poor white head and gentle condition. Good solid peppery hop resin aromas, pleasant citrusy grapefruit, bitter hop and sweet graininess in the mouth and a lingering soft hoppiness that turns to controlled bitterness at the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This IPA pours a light orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus with a touch of sweetness. A medium to lighter bodied IPA. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are floral and citrusy. Mildly bitter IPA. Perhaps a little thin but a very decent IPA. It’s a little mild in comparison to most PNW IPAs but not bad. Aroma is soft and full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Quite suprised at this offering from the Mormon State. Seen this at my local BevMo and thought it’d be nice to try. Got it home, popped it open and the aroma wasn’t half bad! A nice piney/citrusy aroma hit me and it was good enough to make me take notice. Mouthfeel is soft and clean. Flavors are bright with notes of piney hops and sweet malts with a suprisingly good balance between the two. Unfortunately, it might get a bit lost amongst all the West Coast/PNW hoppy IPA’s but this is definitely worth taking a look at.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 Pours golden with medium lasting head. Hoppy aroma consists of pine and an earthiness. Flavor is dry, malt, pine. Round mouthfeel, good body. Smooth bitterness fades to a clean finish. Very easy drinking. A bit mild though. Might fit in better as a pale ale.

12oz. bottle. Faded yellow color with a small rocky white head. Lemongrass and a soft orangey citrus hop character in the aroma. Citric metallic hop character dominates the flavor, with buttery tinges. Some malt emerges in the finish, and a slightly sweet softness to the residual hop bitterness and astringency also contained therein. Mouthfeel is a light medium, somewhat dry.

Bottle from the beer god that is DarkElf... thanks Stephen!!! Pours a clear orange/gold color with virtually no head or lacing. Aroma is very sweet, almost sticky/fruity like and a very mild hope presence comes through. Flavor is very light with grassy, bitter hop hints through-out. Definite citrus towards the end. Very light on the palate and overall a fairly enjoyable beer considering it’s straight from beer wasteland!!! Thanks again Stephen!!!
