COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, Northwest-style Pale Ale is a rare feat of balance: unfiltered, dry-hopped to 40 IBUs, and deliciously sessionable. Groove on this two-time Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal winner (2001 and 2002 Bitter Category). It really smoothes out the bumps.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottled sample via presario. Dark orange in colour with some haze and medium carbonation. Some pink grapefruit aroma, along with a mild note of caramel. Quite dry in the mouth with somewhat sucked out flavors of grapefuit, white sugar, and dried leaves. There are some slight similarities between this and Sierra Nevada PA. Not bad overall, but a bit lacking.

douglas88 (8941) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 A well balanced brew. Has a strong hoppy taste that is quite good, followed by a malty sweet finish. Good drink. Quite drinkable and has some nice flavors.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Hazy orange with an off-white thick creamy head you could spread on toast. Citrus aroma seems subdued, rounds into melons. Starts sharp at the tip of the tongue. Rather soft in general with little bits of hop that kick up in the finish. Entirely too drinkable. I guess that s where the 4% comes in.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
very nice hop aroma. Pours a cloudy orange, with a nice white head. Under hopped, flavour doesnt live up to the aroma. Thin body, with a subdued bitter finish

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 13, 2007
12 oz bottle. Aroma is mild oranges and some sweet malt. Cooper body with off white head. Flavor has a citrus orange and dry peel along with mild bitter. Smooth on the palate leaving it little dry not bad although. Good brew.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2007
grapefruit/pine aroma - extreme grapefruit/piney flavors - pour is a cloudy copper - overall a very nice beer but I think a bit more bitter would do well to balance this beer

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Draught sample at Squatters Pub & Brewery, SLC. Nice hoppy aroma, with resin and pineapple-grapefruit. Light sweetness. Reddish-amber cloudy, with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with fresh hops, grassy and ozone notes. Mild resin and fresh, but soft. Bit of carbonic tang. Finishes smooth with hardly any bitterness. Nice amount of hops without being harsh.

Great Utah Beer Run Summer 2007
On Tap Deep golden color with a thin head. This had a hoppy aroma wow hard to find in Utah Hops in beer. Nice pale malt flavors with a good hop and malt balance. This was a great mouth feel and a great beer for the day. I really liked this beer.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2008 Grapefruit aroma. Pours hazy unfiltered orange-ish. Flavor is mostly a medium citrus hop profile. Not alot of malt backbone. Finshes dry, resiny, but a little wattery. Are all of these Utah brewers like this?
