3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2008 On tap at the Bayou. Pours a light orange with a thin white head. The aroma is really great; like a evergreen forest after a rainstorm. The taste is also dominated by a strong piny and citrus hops, the kind that is both natural and strong. Slightly acidic and a nice malt presence. Great balance. Really quite nice, especially for a pale ale. A top Utah beer for sure. I need to send some of these out.

This draft brew from the Oregon Brewers festival poured a small sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated . The mild aroma was hoppy and malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at OBF ’07. Pours a light amber color with a very nice floral hoppy and malty aroma. Flavor has a nice carmel malty base with light bitterness and tons of floral and somewhat herbal hoppyness that is quite delicious. This beer gets better as it goes down. It seriously keeps tasting better and you get different waves of hops and malt after its went down. Very delicious.
