On tap at the Tram Club at Snowbird, UT. Have also enjoyed from a 12 oz bottle. This is probably the best of the "Utah beer" I have sampled so far. It’s very light and dry, but with complex flavors. Nuts, hops and citrus. A refreshing Summer brew.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 Pours a deep amber, with a good head. The taste is quite complex; a rich malt, a almost spicy hop, and a citrus taste that all mesh well. Good brew.

Tap/Bottle. Considering that they are gagged by this stupid 3.2% crap they did a good job. Nice aromas of grapefruit and hops. Flavor has a nice hoppy bitterness but also some malts and fruit. The go to beer for me in Utah together with the Polygamy porter.

Very approachable pale ale. Great copper/amber pour. Good contrast of malt and hops that’ll keep you interested through the beginning of the night. Gets fruitier the deeper you get.
To scottyw, from Palm Beach, Florida. They didn’t sneak a 4% ABV beer into Utah. Utah’s limit is set by weight and not volume. The limit is 3.2% Alcohol by Weight (ABW)... which makes this beer 4% alcohol by volume and legal to sell everywhere in Utah. It’s what you get when non-drinkers make laws for those who do, I guess.

Nothing really special, except somehow they sneak a 4% ABV beer into Utah. Nice appearance, decent aroma including light hops and slight citrus (grapefruit). I would call this a "light pale ale."

A nice bitter roasted flavor with a mildly fruity finish. A nice accompaniment to blackened fish or chicken dishes. Reminds me of Red Hook ESB.
