3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz – Perfect Pour. Sparkling gold, creamy white head. Soft floral and biscuit aromas ride faint earthed orange tones. Just a touch of underlying sweet toasted malt found at room temp. Straight forward flavors of citrus and earthy florals balance on a kiss of biscuity sweetness. Light bodied and thin with soft carbonation. A not too bad easy drinking pale…

short 12OZ, twist-off bottle. Pours, clear golden pale. Foamy white head. aroma of grassy hops and grapefruit. Flavor is a watery malt followed by a very rich and calming hop BITE. Big bitterness. Some earthy bread. Long lasting hop flavors linger on the palate. A tasty, full flavored American Pale Ale that is light in body. This beer is so easy to drink and extremely pleasent going down. It’s Organic!

Bottles courtesy of douglas88, thanks buddy. 12oz bottle pours clear gold with bright white head. The aroma has a nice load of grapefruit juice and orange juice with mild malt sweetness bringing up the rear. The taste starts with a pleasing pulse of grapefruit juice and orange peel followed by sweet maltiness. Into the finish the bitter hop grapefruit note grows and lingers deep into the after taste. Great aroma and nice flavor here but the body is a bit too thin.

12oz bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a clear, honey-orange color; thin white head. Solid mineral / earthy bitterness in the aroma; nicely hopped pale ale aroma. Medium mouthfeel: lots of zesty, spicy hoppiness upfront; soft, toasty malt core; reasonable, very drinkable pale ale. Medium finish: lingering bitterness, minerals and some earthiness; touch of spiciness.

Bottle thanks to Douglas88! Color is light amber with a white head and has a nice citrus and hops aroma...more so than most pale ales. The flavor is similar, with hops, orange, grains, and malt. I like the balance and enjoyed this Utah pale ale.

NABA 08’: Pours a copper color with a white head. The nose is very grassy with a citrus and orange note, light lemon. The flavor is meaty with a well rounded body and a caramel malt twang in the end. Nice light bitterness and a trailing floralness. Good Pale.
