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.

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.

Enjoy By: 11/15/14

Pours a nice 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, slightly piney/citrus notes. The taste is hoppy, catching alittle bit of malts, slightly piney/citrus. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall a tasty brew, would buy again. Nice to see a new brew in Utah.
