Beer #8 in the great Utah Brew Hunt.

What an odd nose on this thing. It's almost candy-ish. Flavor is a bit unusual as well. Orange citrus tones with a touch of spicy aspect is there as well. Drinkable? Sure. It's consistent. But it's consistently different on its profile in a way that won't bring me back for another try.

Serving type: on-tap

3.53/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Shaker pint glass. No evident freshness dating. Received in beer-of-the-month club from Tami.

A: Slightly hazy amber with 1-2 finger nearly white, frothy hed with good retention and sheets of lacing down the glass.

S: Dank hops and medium-dark crystal malts, some nutty, woody aromas but not a lot there.

T: The flavor is not an IPA style flavor -- this fits more into the session APA or session amber ale category. The flavor is balanced, but I would say more malt-dominated with medium-dark crystal maltiness and a light orange and grapefruit citrus hoppiness. A little bit of fruity yeast esters. All in all, not bad but not really an IPA in any form.

M: Light-medium body which is amazing given the 4% ABV with light-medium carbonation and pretty dry finish.

O: Not a beer I would seek out but not bad. More fits the session ale (APA or amber, probably more session English IPA or amber IMO) category.

3.38/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a orange-amber color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a spotty cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Some fruity hops along with an almost overwhelming maltiness. Quite balanced but definitely not going to hop route

T: Starts off with a balance between the fruity hops and lightly sweet maltiness. Goes into a bit of graininess and very light bitterness. Finishes with a bit of both

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Maybe even a bit too malty for a session IPA, this beer is definitely malt forward with a bit of hoppiness. Very easy to drink but a bit on the malty side, it definitely gets a bit cloying after a while. Worth a 6-pack if you're going to session a few, but probably not worth a 12-pack. I'd easily choose Hop Nosh over this

3.28/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy sudsy off-white head that slowly reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of hops - pine/resin, floral, and citrus/orange. Light aromas of grainy malts with a hint of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of grainy malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of pine/resin, floral, and citrus/orange hops (in descending order of strength) which imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades rather quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish. Slightly thin/watery.

O: A decent session IPA but not nearly as exciting as some of the others produced more recently (Stone Go To, Founders All Day, etc.). Nice flavors and aromas but a little underwhelming in the mouthfeel.

Pours a light gold color with a white head. The smell is pungent and hoppy, malt sweetness also factoring in. In the taste, toffee like malts and some earthy, bitter hops. Has the weakness of a NA beer with a bit of hops. Sessionable, but so is water if that's your prerogative . Tastes like a watered down ipa also sporting a watery body. There are some citrus notes and soft grain, but honestly thin and watery. Why bother.

3.46/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of 07/24/14. Sampled on May 18, 2014.

The pour is a light to medium copper-amber with a lasting white head. A little cloudy.

The aroma has a decent enough pine and floral hop character with a modest malt balance.

The mouthfeel is about medium and the texture seems chewy.

The taste is a pretty straight forward hopped up IPA with some amber malty notes. The hops leave a lingering bitterness.
