Good looking gold color with white cap and lacing.

Aroma of crisp, piney hops on a diminished malt base.

Taste on entry is hop forward and uncomplicated in a refreshing. Malt enters mid palate and is a bit richer than the sent implies. It is in fact a bigger malt flavor than some other session ales I've tried and noteworthy in comparison to those others. Aftertaste is malty which is then covered by the hops.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Good show animal for the breed, nothing special enough to stock up on but if diet or other reasons require a low ABV brew this one work reasonably well.

A return to one of the beers that got me into beer, the first IPA i loved which allowed me to continue to expand my pallet into being a full on hop head
pours a dark golden amber with a fluffy quickly dissipating head
smell is strong of citrus hops, notes of grapefruit, detectable malt character
taste is strong of citrus hops, with just a little malt, no alcohol taste whatsoever which blends well with the lack of malt
i can remember beginning to love hops with this, fantastic session brew, would recommend buying a case

probably the least compelling of the uinta beers i had out in utah on my trip, this is fine beer, drinkable enough and quite hoppy as they go, but it just seems sort of lackluster overall, like its missing something. a little malty for what it is, but i like it having a little more substance. the hops just seem a little lost to this, like its better as a light pale ale than it is as an ipa of any kind, it just never really gets there on the hops for me. subtle pine, toasted grain sweetness, and orange. it has some body for its lightness, i just wonder how all the utah draft beer is exactly 4% abv, do they have it that dialed, is it watered down some, its tough to say, but its light abv is not necessarily indicative of its drinkability here, its still light, but its not necessarily interesting enough to want to drink a lot of, and it kind of falls apart a little when it warms up. maybe i am being to critical, they cant all be amazing, and i did enjoy the one pint of this i had well enough, so whatever, its passable craft beer, but thats not the standard i would want to be held to if i was making it...

Can dated best by 10/10/16 into pint glass. Pours a cloudy amber with a persistent but thin off-white head. Initial impression is citrus, pine, maybe a little floral hops. Not much bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Dry, refreshing finish. Very sessionable - would be great with seafood.

A thanks to the commander of canned beers, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is fruity, tangerine, mango. Taste is mild compared to the aroma. Citrus, caramel malts, very little bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but lacking any punch.
