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.

Wow, 4%?! I hope this is good, cuz I love me some low ABV beer!

Grain yellow with a solid soapy quilt of whites. Smells of grain and grassy hops, some hints of lemon, but generally simple and crisp. Taste is crackers with a touch of bread and crouton, a bit of bitter and grass flavored hops; taste is okay, but a little more malty than I'd expect from a "extra" pale ale.... Medium on thin bodied with moderate on hi carb with a wet finish. I'm indifferent to this, if it was canned, I'd be all over it for the golf course.

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.

A - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a light mix of citrus hop and some lemon zest. There is some sweet biscuit malt in the background as well.

T - Sweet biscuit malts with some citrus hop and light bitterness. Through the middle, some bready malts and some lemon come through. Finish is a mix of biscuit and some lemon zest.

M - Medium-light bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Smooth and very crisp.

D - Very drinkable. The flavors could be a bit stronger, but this is a very sessionable beer.

Average-size head for the style, foamy and bone white, with a ton of stickage on the glass as the head thins to a skim. Color can be called nothing but true gold.

Snappy, fruity hoppiness in the aroma, clean and simple, with some brown sugar and green apple emanating through the hops.

Hops reign in the flavor...it's a 4% pale ale that tastes a little bigger, and is certainly bitter enough to be a hophead's go-to session beer. A little apple, a little burnt sugar and a touch of cinnamon give it necessary depth, though that's not to say it's complex at all.

While generously carbonated, it's not overwhelmingly so, though it feels watery, like the malt's not keeping up its end of the bargain. Only real pitfall of this beer.

Overall this is very reminiscent of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, with a more exotic yet subtle spiciness. Maybe one day Utah can pull itself out of the dark ages and allow their brewers freedom to brew whatever they like in the land of the free. Until then, this shows that Utah natives wanting quality aren't completely out of luck.

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.

Pours deep golden with gushingly large white head. Nose is very light with some bready-biscuity notes. On the palate there is a cereal-grain like sweetness with some balancing citrus, lively carbonation, and a touch of white pepper on the finish. More enjoyable when right out of the fridge than once warmed a few mins.
