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.

The aroma is strong. It is a mixture of hoppy, fruity and vegetable-like notes. Sweet and spicy. The flavour is round and soft and contains a rather high concentration of fruity notes. It is a rather nice brew with a mild and smooth mouthfeel.

12oz can from Surdyk's and consumed after a Christmas Eve with the family. Consumed in a Belgian tulip style glass. Slightly hazy golden orange color with decent lacing and about a quarter finger head. Aroma is citrus and pine with maybe a hint of floral. The taste continues to lean heavily on hops with bitterness at the forefront. Grassy and piney with a little stickiness in the mouthfeel. End brings citrus back into the equation. Feels pretty light and easy to drink. Nothing too memorable to find here.

From Feb 2008 I got this bottle in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John! It pours from 12oz bottle a hazy orange-gold with a 2 finger head of foam. The smell is big on the hops...mostly grapefruit, but there's also a hint of malt. The taste on first sip has notes of grapefruit, caramel malt, and a bit of roasted malt. It has a medium mouthfeel and it finishes with a nice tart/bitter kick that to me, smacks of oranges. Dang, pretty nice APA and at 4%abv, I could easily see myself downing a few of these. Good job, Squatters!

Rating #2620 - 2016.06.24 - Draught at Squatters in SLC. Golden pour with a creamy white head that bubbles away quickly. hops are very fragrant with mild citrus in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, and bitter hops on the finish - but not overpowering, very balanced. Good.

Pint 12oz. Amber with a white head. Pretty neutral aroma. Subtle bitter malty taste. Ok beer.

Can. Hazed yellow pour, with an off white head. Bready, sweet, lightly bitter, notes of citrus, and caramel. I’m not liking it very much, not much hops.

My reviews keep disappearing.....I’ll make this brief.

Pours cloudy orange. Cream colored head, good retention, gold lacing.

Aroma is orange peel and orange. Hop oil and grapefruit.

Taste is more grapefruit than orange. Well balanced. Hop oil lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. Bitterness wins out with the lingering hop oil. Finishes dry and mellow.

Overall, it’s a simple berr, but well done. Easy drinking. I would recommend it, and would buy it again.

Stay review...stay.....

Bottle at BrewMaster’s Craft Beer Festival. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus and grass. Medium body, citrus, grass, earth malt, light bitterness, good.

Can - Pours amber with fizzy white head. Notes of citrus and other light fruits. Fruity flavor, juice, fermented breads, some bitterness in the after. Mild. Drinkable. Meh.

A bit trashy and thin. Bready malt, dry hops, slight bitterness. The finish fades away quickly. Meh.

On tap at Squatters, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out light piney hops and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is well-balanced, with a nice piney hop quality and dry biscuity malt. Bland and lifeless, but it’s okay.
