Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Belmont Station--a golden amber-orange body with a medium white head. Nose of citrus hops and sweet caramel malts. Sticky, bready, chewy, and quite enjoyable. Decent bitterness is finish. Not the best IPA, but far from bad.

douglas88 (9056) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 On tap at NABA fest in Idaho Falls 2008. Grand Teton was on its home turf and they put on a nice show. Pours a light amber with a small white head. The aroma was quite sweet, citrus, bready malts, and marmalade. The taste was not that intense, but very good; light hops, some citrus and honey mix together like a breakfast pastry. Pretty nice. I enjoyed this one.

3.3
MrEcted1 (144) - Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Very nice, crisp IPA. Very nice body, not thin at all like a lot of average IPAs out there. Aroma is good, melons and pineapple. Taste is similar but pineapple not quite as apparent. Nicely bitter, not over the top but on the same token it doesn’t really stand out. A good average beer worth checking out.

3.2
Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Sweetgrass IPA, Grand Teton Brewing Co. "Jackson Hole’s Original" My first Idaho beer, I do believe. Hazy. pale orange color, good 1/4 " of bright white foam above. Fresh aroma, mild citrus zest, mellow, but discernible hops. On the tongue...faintly hoppy dishwater flavor,...light bodied, faintly flavored, disappears from the palate in a minute or less... Persistent hops on the tongue, but a bit too mild to call it an IPA...not much more than an APA. Nothing terrible about it, just a bit blase.

3.6
omhper (24967) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Bottled. Lightly hazy golden, small head. Aroma of lychee abd canteloupe. Sweet and medium bodied with chewy caramelly malt character. Firm and vital with restrained citric hoppiness. Finisehs with medium bitterness. Aiming more towards balance than most American IPAs.
