I figured out that Utah is not beer heaven. It took me a couple days to figure out how and where to get some beer.

This beer was purchased at a liquor store and most IPA's are OK. I had already tried some other tap beers without much reward.

This beer pours a nice bright clear dark gold. The head was thick like merigue. The nose was a little week but clean and hoppy. The taste was hoppy with a high amount of malt for an IPA but was very refreshing and nice tasting.

Slightly copper hued, more so yellow with a solid with cap and tons of lacing in sheets. Nice aroma of freshly dried hop cones, leafy, grassy, fresh, with a smallish pale malt backing. Taste is lovely fresh with hop tones, leafy, green, grassy, nice bittering tones that are alpha acid packed with goodness and just mild enough to not over do it. Pleasingly placed malts add some zip of dried bread grains. The hops are really nice in fresh, very yummy with just a bit of pine and citric things to keep in some interest, but the freshness of leafyness is what made me keep on drinking this stuff. My is it tasty! Medium body feel and well carbonated with a substantial hop bittering thats fresh and leafy. Actually reminded me of a toned down Dreadnaught. That may be saying much, but htis stuff really was nice. I must have got a super fresh sixer, cuz it was fantastic.

One of the better Utah-brewed beers. Pours a clean copper color with a yellowish-white head. Subdued malt presence in the nose, with resiny, sprucy hops. Slight metal. The taste brings out the malt. Pretty good toffee malt flavors--a little sugary, but cancelled out effectively with a conservative (atleast by W. Coast standards) dose of hops. Tart, bitter finish. I just wish they could serve this on tap at the goddam utah beer bars (4% IPAs just don't work well).

(This was from a bottle from a store and was thus not subject to the Utah 3.2 ABW draft law) Copper hue w/ a touch of haze. The dense and well retained head leaves attractive lace. Grassy, slightly citric and minty hop nose. Grainy notes in aroma as well. A bit course and not particularly appealing aromawise. The hop bitterness is moderate and manages to dominate the unassertive malt profile. Mild citrusy hop flavors... this tastes like a subpar Anchor Liberty. It's certainly lacking for an IPA and seems better suited as a regular American PA. Although not great, it doesn't have that characteristic, bland, dry finish that draft Utah 3.2 ABW brews typically have.
