Chill hazed amber colored ale with a small off-white colored head. It meets the requirements to be called IPA Orange.

Smells of bitter orange and pine with and additional strong tea aroma.

Starts out savory and earthy with taste of Kava tea. Mildly sweet this tastes mostly of grapefruit and strong tea.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall a pretty standard AIPA.

Reviewed during the last week when out of service area/Wifi in WY/UT. Full phone notes taken at the Watchman Campground, Zion National Park, UT.

A- 12oz bottled poured into a chalice with a fairly clear pale golden body. Creamy white head forms to one finger with a thick consistency and pretty good retention. A small ring leaves sheets and spots of lace around the glass.

S- Hops are the main player plenty of aromatics coming out of the glass from them. Melons and tangerine fruit comes to mind with grapefruit zest, floral and pine behind that. Clean yeast and just enough grains to be noticed.

T- Citrus and pine hop character picks up but I would still say a combo of tangerine stone fruit pulp and a melon note are what resonate the most to me. Grapefruit zest, orange, floral, earthy and slightly dank hints. Yeast is pretty much silent again and the malts provide a slight cracked grain hint and light sweetness.

MF- Medium bodied ale with a rather creamy texture that comes close to reaching chewy status. The bubbles have an edgy feel on the taste buds due to their high level. Finishes moderately bitter.

Satisfying to have a 6.5% brew after all of the 4% madness that is Utah brew. Melon and stone fruits are the prominent flavors with plenty of other supporting hop notes.

Floral, orange and light grapefruit. Light sweet malt flavor. Light palate works well with the floral dominance. Lingering citrus hop resin on the tongue.

A good tasting beer, but I was expecting more hops! I did finish it though :)

Best by 9/17/14. A bit old, and really unfortunate as I just bought this from the store a few days ago. I'm a bit disappointed I didn't look at the dates, as almost all the beers I got from the store were old. I guess I won't be going there anymore... also try to take that into consideration when reviewing this beer.

Pours a decent bubbly fizzy head that fades at a med pace, soapy messy lacing, fairly hazy tangerine orange color.

Nose fruity hops, faint citrus and rind, little malt character, little candy malt and candied orange, little aged hop character, little floral grassy hop note.

Taste brings more aged hop character unfortunately, fruity though, with mild grassy floral hop notes, and some citrus, faint candied orange rind. Little juicy malt character, mildly sweet with candy malt character, mild rind pithy note, and bit earthy almost pine note, and faint apple skin. Finish is drier but mildly sticky and sweet, little candied fruit and citrus with fruity notes lingering.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall pretty decent, fairly solid ipa even with the age, but probably better fresh. Nothing spectacular though.

Clear darkish amber in the tall glass, with a modest head. Plenty of spritz in the mouthfeel. A different kind of fragrance with resins and honeysuckle.

Fruity and sweet in an appealing way. Lovely carbonation enhances the rich, mouth-filling flavor. Moderately bitter, with more emphasis on the aromatics. Dry finish with a lasting bitterness. Some dark notes, woody tannins, and a hint of mango.

A fruity and flavorful brew that is perfectly drinkable, though it's off the usual west coast grapefruit train. From the Utah State Liquor Store in Sugar House.

Pours a nice slightly cloudy yellow color, nice carbonation, with a nice little fizzy one-finger creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some nice malt notes, very slight citrus notes. The taste is slightly hoppy, catching more malts, slightly citrus. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall a tasty brew, would buy again. Nice to see a new brew in Utah.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: A very nice pour, with a clear amber verging on golden color; the three fingers of foam stick well

Smell: Dank and floral, with a resinous, herbal orange character

Taste: Shortbread malt character, with the hops quickly taking over; the middle is sweet but with a resinous orange and slightly herbal aspect; the finish has decent bitterness but a bit too much residual sweetness

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very decent IPA out of Utah; a bit too sweet for my palate but the hops make a strong statement

Thanks, benkuhns, for the opportunity

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with whitr head. Citrus, floral notes, and just a hint of grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bit of malt and not a big hop bite.

Great beer. There's nothing that makes it stick out from the well-known IPAs around, but it's extremely drinkable, refreshing, and tasty. It's not the best looking beer. It's definitely not as bitter as a lot of IPAs, but it definitely sticks around. But it's a simple citrusy, floral, and refreshing beer. Definitely an IPA you could session in my opinion.
