Slightly hazy amber beer. Palate is just the crisp side of neutral. A minerally spritzy start with a hint of aniseed. Marmaladey hops. Finishes with more minerals and a hint of hop bitterness. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear, golden-copper with lots of sediment and a faint, white head. Nice earthy, floral hop aroma with some malty caramel. Flavor has a brief, sweet, caramel-honey beginning, then mostly bitter with pine and earth. Medium body with lively carbonation. A pretty well balanced, full-flavored pale ale. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from GBBF 08. I don’t think I’ve had too many beers from Utah (4 before this one). Beautiful amber colour. Thin lasting beige head. Attractive enough sharp grapefruit aroma, some malt in there too. Bit of candy sugar flavour on the malts. Good solid hops all over it. Nice lasting bitterness on finish. Really delicious piney hop all through it with enough malt to balance. Very drinkable. Shame I only got one bottle. Very likeable.
