Notes/Commercial Description:
The American IPA is a different soul from the reincarnated IPA style. Color can range from very pale golden to reddish amber. Hops are typically American with a big herbal and/or citric character, bitterness is high as well. Moderate to medium bodied with a balancing malt back bone. Served unfiltered.

This IPA poured a somewhat cloudy iced tea color with a midland fuzzy white head and great lacing. It gives of a grapefruit hops aroma that's pleasant, not too much else. Quite a bitter citrus flavor, very smooth and a bit creamy with wheat and malt. Very drinkable. Not particularly complex but very decent IPA.

Beer #6 in the great Utah Brew Hunt.

Bam, hops all up in my mouth. It's a bit one dimensional and one-sided on the hop influence, but it doesn't really matter too much as it works, for what it is. The low abv is fine with me as it means I can drink more of them. Too bad I didn't start my night out with this one; I may have just stuck with it for the rest of the evening.

3.35/5  rDev -5.6%

Served in a half liter glass at the Red Rock pub bar.

Hazy gold in the glass with a patchy head that sticks hard to the glass.

Aroma is piney cones and grapefruity

Flavor is strong with hops almost like tea with intense vegetal nature of the leaves.

Finish is sharp with a hop bite and a lighter amount of malt on the final count.

This is the second Utah IPA I've had and it seems to follow the case of the other oens. With all of the alcohol restrictions, the brewers are stuck with making a weaker brew that has the same hop nature as na IPA but inherently less complex.

Definately an XPA

2.2/5  rDev -38%

A: Orange, very cloudy (more than what would be expected from a dry hopped beer), no head. Like a flat hefe

A Sweet citrusy, spicy aroma.

T: classic cascade bittering, grapefruit, nice lingering bitterness, very slight toasty maltiness, didn't have the nice bright clean flavor of a american ale, I suspect from the haze problems or possible water issues.

M: very under carbonated

There is a 4.0% abv limit on draft beer in Utah, so this isn't brewed to full strength, hence the JR name. Not very impressed overall--in my opinion is flawed and just not exciting to drink. A flat, plain, boring beer...not what the style means to me.
