look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Presentation: 12 oz short bottle, orange label with a tribal looking log and a USDA Organic logo. Bottled on date is clearly marked, but I don't see an ABV.

Appearance: Clear golden color, nice white head that fades slowly leaving some lacing as it goes.

Smell: Grassy hops, bready malt. Fairly typical APA aromas.

Taste: Hmm - thin, not much flavor .. tastes a bit like a watered down SNPA.

Overall impression: Seems like a lot of organic beers end up tasting thin and watered down - why would that be? This one doesn't have anything blatantly wrong with it, but there certainly isn't much to bring me back either.

Pours a clear orange tinged golden color with a small, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of bright citrus hops.

Tastes of the hops upfront with a decent malt backbone. Hops lead off with citrus and grass notes. Not particularly bitter. Malts come in and a little grainy sweetness along with some bread notes. Everything is very light and the beer comes off as a little bland.

Mouthfeel is light with a small amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a mediocre beer that I would pass on.

Picked up a sixer at Smith's in Vernal, for $9. A little steep if you ask me...no biases going in though.

12 oz stubby.

A: Pale gold/orange color, excellent clarity, about half an inch worth of dense, rocky, white foam. Tons of carbonation floating around in this one. Big gobs of sticky lacing. Excellent.

S: Interesting things going on here, a little pale malt, a few hops, slightly minerally as well. Really light all the way around though. Not a whole lot going on.

T: Light pale malt, a hint of sweetness as well, a little kick of bitter bite at the end, not a whole lot going on. Not offensive, just not a whole lot going on here.

M: Thin and crisp, nice carbonation, slightly dry in the mouth as well. Begs for another sip.

D: Very easy, while not being hugely flavorful, or strong by any means, it does have some nice flavors. Really easy to drink, and makes for a good summer session. I might snag this one again. Not too shabby.

A clear lightish orange golden with a white head that quickly escapes, leaving its remnants around the edge. Bubbles keep coming to the surface. A refreshing aroma of grapefruit and malt mixed with some lemon and grass. Very nice. A sweet, citric flavor to this, very little bitterness at all. Nothing fancy or complex but very nice and enjoyable. Thinner body to this, crisp, with some nice activity from the carbonation. A great sessionable beer here, ideal for the upcoming warm sunny spring and summer days and evening. I will definitely enjoy sitting back throwing a few of these back. Only bought a single this time but will definitely pick up a sixer of this.

12oz. bottle thanks to BigJTrucker

Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that thins. Thick lacing on the glass.

Aroma is really fresh and crisp with dominant hop aroma. Has both notes of citrus and pine and is really well blended to create a fantastic smell. A hint of malt even sneaks in here and there.

Crisp malt taste immediately upfront followed by a wave of delicious hop flavor - just as it smells. An aggressive bitterness hits midway and rides through the finish as it finishes quite dry with a lingering hop flavor. Manages to maintain balance.

Medium-light body, creamy texture, well carbonated.

Wow, this is one impressive brew. I could easily drink this all day long, and at 4% ABV, it's completely possible. I am very pleased I had the opportunity to try this.

Pours a transparent orange brown color with a small white head leaving perfect rings of lacing. Good fresh hoppy nose. Zingy, peppery hop blasts initially with a good solid malt presence, citrus notes round everything out. Very simple, but clean and very well executed. A bit weak on initial body but the mouth feel is coating and the aftertaste is long and hoppy. Definitely a quality beer and probably the best organic ive ever had. Great drinkability, i would recommend to pale ale fans (Extra Pale Ale is a bit much of a stretch, its not extreme by any measure, and at 4%...yea...dont get your hopes up for a monster here), and those who are into the organic thing.
