Kudos for the can.

A: Pours an amber, copper in color with a very small amount of head that fades into a bit of film very quickly. Carbonation seems low. Looks more like an amber ale than an extra pale ale.

S: The aroma is hop dominant with an across-the-spectrum representation of floral, pine and citrus. There is a definite malt presence as well, mostly honey and bread, and some earthiness lingering in the background.

T: The malts shine up front with some bread and roast giving way to a bitter, lemony citrus hop middle and finishing with a mix of the two. Aftertaste is bitter citrus and bread.

M: Light bodied with lively carbonation that prickles the tongue, there isn't much substance here except maybe a hint of chewiness. Goes down very smooth and finishes a bit dry. Quite sessionable.

O: Not quite what I was expecting, it came off more of an amber/pale ale hybrid to me. That said, it was balanced, tasty and quite sessionable. I still have yet to find a brew from Uinta that blows me away, but this is probably one of their better offerings. I wouldn't seek it out, but it would be a nice companion on the trail or during a picnic. Cheers!

Appropriately, this is a very pale straw gold with about 3/4ths of an inch of head. Nice lacing. Aroma offers some nice sharp, grassy hops, though it's a little faint. Good hop flavor, grassy with some citrus, and moderately high bitterness. Malt is very faint. Clean, light bodied, pretty refreshing. Decent hoppy session beer.
