Cool orange color, thought the color would be so much lighter. Developed a thick, long lasting off white head on it, about 1" in depth. Aroma was lacking in the hops department, but landed squarely in caramel range. A treat to those who want a malt centered aroma pale ale, a disappointment for those who want more of an aromatic hop experience.

Taste, lots more of the caramel and a slight hop bitterness vibe that contributes hardly anything in the taste aspect of a hop. The malt flavor is still toasty, and lighter than one would expect to create such an impressive orange color throughout the beer's life. The yeast has kind of a chewy/sticky on your teeth vibe going.

This is like a pale ale for those who are against hops and alcohol. I think the mild toastiness and the malt flavor is what saves this, but it isn't exciting, and the flavor it does have going for it is not what I want to be the 'star' of the show, I'd rather it be in a supporting role.

12 oz bottle, "born" 11/06/12 - so not super fresh by any means.

A: Pours a cloudy dark orange color. 2 finger head that is a mix between fluffy and fizzy. From appearance it looks very carbonated.

S: Smells very bready. Strong malt character. Definitely hoppy as well. Some citrus notes - orange peel.

T: Hop character is very mild, as is the bitterness. The bread/biscuit malt character is prominent. Not much sweetness. Not much anything to be honest. Very bland and boring.

M: light body. High carbonation. Good creaminess.

O: Very average. Good if you're looking for a sixer you could smash in an hour. Granted, this wasn't fresh, but I prefer more flavor in my beer.

Had on-tap at Squatters Pub in SLC.

A: rusty orange and cloudy; cream head leaves a nice amount of webby lace while managing some good retention.

S: light grapefruit rind; not much malt aroma; pretty big hop aroma for a 4% beer.

T: grapefruity hops... cascade/chinook - esque; light caramel malt is there - barely; lacks a little complexity but not bad; has a slight gummy / sorghum taste on the end.

M: light-bodied; moderate carbonation; a tad thin and watery.

O: good for what it is - a 4% American pale ale. I'd have it again, for sure.

*from notes - 9/30/12

On draft at the SLC airport.
Appearance: Hazy copper with a nice, thick crown of foam.
Smell: Like walking through a field of grapefruit trees on the day of harvest. Absolutely amazing.
Taste: Definitely hop forward, but balanced with precision. Just enough malt to keep it interesting. Citrusy and clean with a sweet, lingering grapefruit finish.
Mouthfeel: Light and crisp. The carbonation keeps things moving and it has the good sense not to overstay its welcome.
Overall: I can’t understand why this isn’t one of the most sought after sessionable pale ales in the country. It’s brilliant.
