Served in straight pint glass. Poured a nice bright gold color, a bit hazy, with a bit over 1/4 inch of bright white head that had pretty good retention and lacing.

Nice hop scents hit the nose first, mostly pine, with citrus secondary, and a bit of a floral aspect deeper in the back. The hop aroma was good, but perhaps a bit on the subdued side. Those hops were a good bit bolder on the tongue, with the citrus being more dominant, and the pine was more in the background. There was no real malt profile, and the bitter citrus finish lingered a bit too long for my tastes.

The body was nice, light and just shy of crisp. Drinkability was pretty good, you could easily knock back many of these on a sunny day, if you liked the bitter finish, which kind of wore on me. Overall, a pretty nice little beer. I think they hit the target they were looking for. Certainly worth your time if you see it.

A: Poured a cloudy light yellow color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap and medium lacing

S: A noticable citrus profile with some grapefruit, orange peel, a light pepperness

T: A noticable spice, citrus and herbal presence with some good Chinook bittering .

M: Light bodied but it felt heavier, well carbonated

O: It's pretty good but I would not session this due to the bittering hops

Growler filled at the brewery. Poured into a straight pint glass.

Description from Georgetown's website:

Paying homage to the great state of Utah and the possibly the finest actor of our generation, Johnny Utah is a low-alcohol, session IPA. It's packed full of Chinook and Crystal hops making this very light-bodied ale taste bitter and a lot like grapefruit juice! Get your hops and don't get all jack-wagoned up at the same time! Just remember.... "Utah, get me two!"

Two-row Pale, Light Munich, Cara-Pilsner. Crystal and Chinook Hops. IBU's 50. English Ale Yeast.

A: The beer pours a hazy light yellow color with a thin head of foam that quickly dissipates. Lacing is minimal but present throughout.

S: Johnny Utah has a light grapefruit aroma with a hint of sweet caramel malt.

T: This session IPA's main flavor is light grapefruit, which comes from the Chinook and Crystal hops. There is a sweetness from the malt that balances the bitter hops, but nothing in this is very heavy or overwhelming.

M: The beer has a nice light mouth feel, slightly creamy but finishes dry. There is little to no bitter aftertaste.

O: Probably my favorite product from Georgetown, this was a nice surprise to find at the brewery on the July 4th weekend. Hopefully it sticks around and becomes a mainstay in their lineup. This is a very nice IPA to sit around and drink with friends long into the evening with no consequence.
