2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
appearance: slightly hazy, medium brown, frothy, bubbly white head, good lacing. aroma: some caramel and graham cracker, light grassy, floral hops. taste: caramel malty, toasty sweetness, some grapefruit and floral, grassy hops. finish: dry hop notes against the malty backbone, slightly watered down seemingly. notes: This is an ok pale ale. Just ok. Essentially an exact parallel to this brewery’s entire lineup, barring the outstanding Baba Black Lager.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Uinta. Clear amber colored beer with some white foam. There’s a lot of caramel and bready malts to this. Somewhat estery and fruity, it seems. A bit of a grassy hop character, too. Some light citrus, minimal bitterness, and a lot of sweet malts all the way through. Not really my kind of pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 It has an IBU rating of 34 I thought it would have been much higher. It was to bitter, with a strong hoppy flavor not for me.
Didn’t really care for this one the first time I tried it, But had one the other night on tap at the bowling alley and it was good didn’t seem as overly hoppy and bitter like I remembered. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very little aroma from this slightly cloudy medium yellow/amber body with a nice white head. Taste is more like an amber ale than a pale ale with a good roasted malt flavor and some light buttery caramel sweetness. Hops are earthy and pungent and appropriately strong for the flavor. Body is a bit watery but not terribly. Ends with a woody, slightly bitter taste that lingers and is very tasty. A very nice beer overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, biscuit into a bit of yeast, hints of slight dough into a bit of grain. Taste was a mix of grass, grain, some earth into a bit of biscuit, bread, some yeast, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter. Not really much flavor, but relatively refreshing after driving for 7 hours.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Springdale UT.
Nose is a pretty straight SN pale ale clone, flavor follows but dialed back a bit as befits the 4% ABV. Easy drinking and quite tasty with a nice hop snap that doesn’t leave one with a mouth of hop pellet afterward. Solid.

Aroma is light caramel and a hint of citrus hops. Appearanc eis hazy copper with tiny off white head. Taste is light caramel and hop bitterness. Minerally water flavor and a hint of citrus aroma hopping. Palate is medium light and crisp. Overall this beer is pretty boring. Nothing really stands out. Drinkable I guess.

Toasted malts and floral hops. A little citrus bite. Amber pour frothy head. Flavors of toasted grains and floral hops with a citrus bite. Fairly basic and boring but clean and well executed.
