4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into a pint glass. Color was caramel paleish. About a finger of head. Gray lacing on the top with a very small gap near the sides. Film was frothy on the sides, pretty even.
Smelled pretty balanced initially. I got citrus hops with tangerine seeming to lead the way with some lemon in there, too. Also some nice sweet floral notes. Once again, very balanced smell.
Tasted pretty similar to the nose with the impressive balance of hops and floral notes. Citrus hops, grapefruit mainly, coming in there.
Light body. Thin, oily texture. Average carbonation. Smooth finish.
A pretty good beer overall. I canít get over how balanced this beer was.

Aroma is kind of mild. But is citrusy and pine. Flavor is good bitterNess, and a clean palate. Finishes a bit sticky oily. Overall a good ipa. No lacing, clear.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap at A.J.ís in Chicago. Bright orange appearance and lively carbonation. The smell is hopped-grapefruit and the taste is pure grass. Fresh. Medium bodied. A little too bitter for my tastes. Itís a bold IPA thatís well worth the low price, although Iíd have trouble drinking more than one.

Bottle at DíAgneseís Trattoria in Akron, OH. Draft in American shaker. Orange-golden yellow pour with thick, lasting white head. Very nice aroma with significant pine, resin, floral, and citrus. Taste similar with the pine and resin dominant. Bitter, but floral finish. Very well balanced with the malts. Medium body, medium carb. Crisp finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep straw with slightly fluffy white head. Light hippy aroma, too light to pick out maybe a bit grassy. Flavor is a decent hop profile that lingers throughout to the finish. Not bad

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dull, clear golden color with an eggshell colored head. Head retention is excellent. A battle of pine and citrus in the bouquet. Grapefruit breaks through late. A nearly perfect mouthfeel that makes this IPA so very drinkable. Sweet grapefruit and a note of tangerine in the impressive flavor. Excellent IPA. Well done, Salt Lake City!

Deep gold-light copper, clear, off white head. Aroma of piney hops, biscuity malt. Flavor: grainy/biscuity malt, piney-resiny hops with mild citrus, clean and crisp with a little lingering bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and well- made.
