3.83/5  rDev +20.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a dark, cloudy, burnished copper color with a huge, sticky head that is borderline expolsive on the pour.

Smell: Faint hops and toasty grains with a slight metallic aroma in the background.

Taste: Moderate flowery hop presence that is perfectly balanced with a smooth malty background. Kinda musty throughout. Sweet grainy, slightly metallic, finish. Very unique.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Medium carbonation and body, very smooth. This one goes down real easy, very sessionable. I wish my friend had brought back more than one bottle from Utah!

Ok, this label is goofy. I'm putting a picture up for all to see...a goateed stoner skeleton catching big air on skis. There was no brewery info to be found anywhere on the label, which was a little disconcerting.

Pours a transparent brownish amber, lots of bone white soapy bubbles that stick to the glass like detergent. A skim barely covers the top, and breaks up in time.

Aroma is of malt extract, sweet wort is the first thing that comes to mind. Sort of one-dimensional but not unpleasant.

Amber malt flavor, no hop bitterness, a little earthy in the middle. Slightly toasty on the back end, mild but welcome.

Thin and watery feel, it just deflates itself before you can swallow. Just average overall, it's taste is agreeable, but nothing really stands out. One or two in the Utah heat sounds about right.

This is a simple ale, not much to it, with room to improve.
Is it a bad thing this hasn't been reviewed in over a year?

The color a transpicuous burnished copper color, the head is modest but short lived with the color a pleasant tan and the residual lace a fine coating to conceal the glass. The malts dominate the nose, but the hops do peak through with the start sweet malt, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is stingingly acidic with the hops mild and understated, dry long lasting aftertaste, and a quite drinkable beer and would make a good session beer.

This review is for the bottled version contract brewed by Big Hole Brewing Co. (?) in Belgrade, MT.

Reddish-brown with a full pillowy off-white head - overcarbonated. Either infected or an overly intense floral hop aroma; Betting the former or it's oxidized badly. Tastes much like it smells. LIght bodied and too airy.

A shame since this should have been fairly fresh through the M.J Beer of Month club. This is prob an old bottle left over from pre-MOAB days... Has happened too many times thru the club - may cancel..

Per label: Park City Tie Die Red. Park City Brewing Co. 6 malts and 4 hop additions.

Per M.J. notes: Munich, Carapils, Chocolate, ... malts. Columbus, Fuggles, Willamette and Cascade hops.

Maroon with an off-white head that fades quickly. Nothing of note on the nose, maybe a bit of burnt caramel or it could have been the glass, it was weak either way. It's a very normal beer, perhaps someone else can taste all the advertised complexities but I couldn't. It is sour all across the tongue and leaves a slight bitter aftertaste, slightly acidic feel, drinkable. Unremarkable overall but nothing offensive by any means.

From the crazy 7 pack. Pours a clear amber color, nice carbonation, nice small head, and some nice lacing throughout the drink. Scents of sweet malts, slight caramel and citrus. The taste is slightly sweet/malty, slight caramel under tone, with a nice clean after taste. Medium body, well rounded brew. Very drinkable. This is a tasty amber ale, recommended as well.

Dark brown color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is malty, fruity and very sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. A nutty and a little too sweet red/amber ale. Malts are plentiful and sit on the palate well, but its way too sweet for my liking. Very drinkable, despite that fault. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Picked this up in Park City over labor day. Very cool label with a skeleton in skis (very Deadheadish!!!!). That being said, the actual beer is not very good. Of course this falls under the Utah 4% rule. The appearance and aroma are very nice. There are moderate hop hints reminiscent of a pale ale. The taste is extremely flat! There is a bitterness that just hangs and doesn't turn into anything. This is probably one of the most one-dimensional beers I have ever had!

Moab has another neat label design on this beer. It's not as good as their Scorpion label, but Tie Die has a skiing skelton catching big air on it. And the slogan "Be the Mountain" is cool.

Tie Die pours a deep reddish-brown color with a lovely off white head. There's not much aroma, but what is there is faintly malty.

I'm surprised at the taste, especially after reading the blurb on the bottle about the six type of grains and four hop additions. Frankly, this beer is just average. It is quite balanced with neither malt nor hop flavor very noticable. There is an almost sour taste to it, which might be from tannins. I was expecting more hop flavor than this delivers.

Tie Die is an average ale. But cool label!

Crazy 7-pack is tough to open! Pours a hearty dark amber with copper edges. Tidy, glass-licking, half finger of off-white head. Nose is full of toasted malt. Backed by spicy hops and bready sweetness. Taste starts out with smoky toasted malts. Meaty to fruity underneath. Spicy, moderately bitter hops finish it off. Not bad, but a little thin overall. Could use another 1% or so. Still, quite drinkable and a good pick for a nice amber out here in Utah.
