Ahh 5.5% beer. This is the strongest beer in the place... And the best. Light color, great aroma, I can taste and smell the fruity aroma flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear, bright amber orange with a medium, foamy-white head. The nose was floral with malt tones and a little alcohol perfume. The flavor strats with a nice bready, pale malt base with a tasty citric hop overlay. Nicely balanced. Medium bodied with a solid presence of malt flavor and hop bite. Sadly this one has been retired.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, dull-orange body with a small, filmy white head. Grapefruit and ctirus hop aroma with lightly sweet crystal malt and a note of apple. Flavor brings more apple and pear qualities and is moderately bitter, but very dry. Medium-thin body. A fair pale ale with very modest depth of character imposed by the oppression of Utah.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Caramel-cloudy hue. No head. Hoppy and sweet, more like an IPA. Tingly goodness that moves slowly front to the back of the mouth. No aftertaste bite. Not bitter. Full body and flavor. Nicely done and exceeded somewhat low expectations.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear light amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts hoppy, some malts midway but like all pales finishes hoppy with bitter after taste. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Utah DABC Salt Lake City, Ut. I bought this in May 2006 and it tastes fresh; the bottle has the ABV at 5.5%.

Awesome nose but not much else here. Attack is weak, the beer is thin, the aftertaste watery, but it sure smells good

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong citrus-orange/grapefruit hop nose with floral notes and sweet caramel malt undertone. Hazy orange-tan with decent-sized, large-bubled, off-white head that recedes slowly with decent lacing. Sweet caramel and toasted malt flavour with plenty of grapefruit and lemon hop flavour and a fair finishing bitterness. Medium body with strong prickling carbonation that engages the tongue. Bottle.

Had at the airport which I believe is exempt from the crazy UT laws. Thought more than fair with an okay pale coloring, slightly bitter hops, some sweetness and drinkable.

Clear gold pour with fair sized light tan head. Aroma is mostly malty with some hints of floral hops. Taste is mostly s smooth malt with touches of biscuits. Very smooth. Far exceeded my expectations.

More punch for your Utah dollar but only offered in bottles. 5.5% alcohol, strong and solid aroma, fruity hop flavor, not to dry and quaffable. Too bad they can’t sell it on tap.
