Single, short, stout, twelve-ounce bottle just purchased from Gary's in Madison...
"USDA Organic" on the orange, front logo sticker...
Appearance: Medium-copper, light-bronze, hue... Minimal head... Minor lacing...
Smell: Mild, slightly hoppy aroma with nuances of lemon zest...
Taste: Despite the low ABV, there was abundant taste in this dry-hopped, organic pale ale... Hints of fresh mint, bittersweet grapefruit, lemons, limes, and a hoppy finish make this an easily drinkable, very enjoyable beer...
Light-to-medium-bodied mouthfeel...
Ultra-easy drinkability...
Good stuff...

Bottled on 9/20/11

Pours a clear yellow-gold with a nice fluffy, white blanket of a head on top. Lightly hoppy nose...mild biscuit malt, juicy grapefruit and lemon. Light in the flavor as well, clearly a low ABV session beer, but tasty in its overall mildness. Green and oily with a slight bitterness. Some floral and herbal notes; touch of grain. Light body, slightly bitter, and a bit drying. I only bought a single, but I imagine it would be easy to drink quite a few of these in a sitting. A simple, light, APA.

EDIT: From a can...picking up a bit more lime than lemon in the aroma this time around. Very floral, green, and refreshing. Good, sessionable beer and definitely worthy of a six-pack purchase once in a while. Really nice on tap too.

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before settling at a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Mildly hoppy aroma brings some citrus to the table along with some grassy notes.

T- Flavor follows suit with a moderate bitterness and some light grapefruit. Nice Bready malt to balance.

M- Slightly oily with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A great pale ale for sessioning due to the low ABV. Doesn't skimp on taste either.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, making it $1.67 for a single 12oz brown boittle. It has a bottled on date of 1/26/12 on it, so this bottle is about 10 months old now.

The beer poured a slightly hazed pale gold color with a half finger of white head on top that dissipated in less than 30 seconds and left only a few small spots of lace. Not that attractive to look at.

Pine, citrus, and tropical fruit smell with subtle bready malt underneath.

This mostly has a citrusy hop flavor with a bit of pine hop bitterness. giving it a 29 IBU rating. What malt there is is on the dry crackery side rather than sweet.

Light body with higher than average carbonation.

It has decent flavor, and with the low 4.0% abv you can have a few of these without feeling much, but they are not anyhing that I would describe as WYLD or exceptional.

Can from Tipples. Best before 9/9/14, poured 7/31/14. Pours clear golden with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of nice floral hops, some lemon peel, a bit of soapy hop notes, and mild malt in the background. Flavor is nice bitterness up front, some grassy hops, hay, hint of citrus peel, light bready sweetness, and a slightly dirty flavor on the finish. This one is light and crisp with plus carbonation. The malts are waaay in the background. Other than the slightly weird finish on this--and it's not all that prominent--this was very nice. Maybe a bit more malt sweetness would be nice, but the. It wouldn't be Extra pale I guess. I don't get the low ratings here. Good beer that I could drink all day.

Pale flat yellow, plenty of carbonation streams, and four fingers of white micro-bubbly foam.

Pleantsant not overly agressive grapefruit aroma.

Quick fleeting caramel, immediately overwhelmed by grapefruit. Bitterness builds and peaks smoothly at the swallow. Citrus and bitter entwine in the aftertaste.

Light-medium mouthfeel is smooth with some background bubblyness.

Overall an enjoyable if unexceptional pale ale. You might not seek, but no reason to avoid.

Pours very pale orange with a one-finger foam head. No lace nor retention beyond a skim.

Light malt and grapefruit/hop notes are primary.

The hop profile sells this one. Big juicy grapefruit rind here, with a touch of fruit overall. Malt is a bit bread, transitions to a cracker note as it dries out. Rind and bitterness come in to finish. Nice drinkable hoppy ale.

Medium bodied, maybe medium light. Decent carbonation.

A nice hoppy brew that is a bit out of balance on purpose. The lighter malt makes this easy to drink without foregoing all elements of flavor. A nice little APA -- I'm surprised and will have this again.

A 12oz bottle with a bottled-on date of May 18th 2012. Purchased recently at the GBBF in London. The label mentions that this brew is organic.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A bright golden hue with slight haze and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a thin surface layer. Aroma of sweet, grainy malt with notes of grapefruit, citrus, mild pine and faint grassiness. A hint of caramel and subtle earthy yeast in the background.

Tastes of light caramel malt with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, citrus and pine resin, along with dry, earthy yeast and biscuity grain. Slightly sweet. A well-judged bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is dry and tingly, with a spicy quality on the tongue. Reasonable body for the style. Mildly astringent; leaves an aftertaste of aromatic hops and malt.

Nice - not quite SNPA but a very drinkable pale ale. Well balanced; the malt is light and sweet while the aromatic hops come through nicely. The bitterness is restrained but appropriate. Great for a hot day - I'd certainly have one again. Too bad Uinta brews aren't found much near me. Worth sampling if you see it.
