3.63/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint. Purchased from the brewery, but no freshness date. The bottle says this won gold medals at GABF in 2001 and 2002 in the bitter category.

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden, maybe an SRM of 5 or so. The egg shell colored head was rocky until it dissipated, which happened slowly. Nice lacing too.

Smell: Citrus, maybe oranges and tangerines. There is a hint of pine from the hops as well. Slight bitterness in the smell.

Taste: This one is not as hoppy as I had remembered from previous tastings. There is a subtle malty sweetness. This one fits the pale ale style very well.

Mouthfeel: Maybe because I poured it to get a good head, but this one had a lower amount of carbonation. Reminds we of a beer out of a tap. Because of this, the mouthfeel is kind of creamy.

Drinkability: Another beer that might not appeal to hop heads, or someone that wants a lot of flavor. However, this one could be a very good introduction to craft beer for a BMC drinker. This one is only slightly lower quality that SNPA.

Pours orange and hazy. SMell is hoppy fruity and clean. Taste is similar with fruity, clean hops. Really is very drinkable, smooth and clean tasting a full month past the drink by date on the underside of the can. This is a pretty nice pale ale and at only 4%, that's even better. Still a nice full body, but light enough to be sessionable. Expected I'd drain this after seeing the date, but was pleasantly surprised.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Chill hazed amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells strongly of northwestern style hops. Strong pine and grapefruit and a lesser passion fruit aroma. Fainter scent of apricot. Slight mint aroma.

Starts out strongly woody and malty. Mild pine flavor with citrus strangely missing. Overall tastes nothing like it smells.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Not a bad pale ale smells great but just tastes OK.

Gotta say, Utah is beautiful. This beer certainly takes that trait along with it. A gorgeous deep hazy amber with a good finger white head. Good retention and lacing.

Smell gives similar promise: juicy, resiny, with sweet floral notes and some citric spice. There's a supporting malt layer underneath, but the hops really take top billing.

With the buildup that the preceding two categories offered, drinking it is a little bit of a letdown. The supporting body that seemed to be folded gently in is completely absent, and it becomes a dulled reflection of what it seemed it was going to be. Less of the juicy hops with a supportive malt presence, it instead presents with a muted tea-like non-beginning, followed by a void in the middle before wrapping it up with a bitter bready finish. Moreso just bitter as opposed to hoppy, lacking a certain amount of complexity.

With the promise shown while it was just a glass of potential, the reality was a bit of a let down. There are elements here, but it feels like there is something missing. It gives the impression of coming into a film twenty minutes late, and finding half of the middle scenes are missing on top of it. Utah's beautiful, though!

Pretty good looking, orange-tan and mostly clear with a pretty good head and lace.

Flavor and aroma are pretty hop forward, yet with a good solid malt backbone that offers a pretty balanced brew. Bready malts and citrus, herbaceous hops are the dominant flavors.

Body is medium and carbonation smooth. Overall very nice for a 4% brew, I like these tasty lower ABV beers.
