With a strong "west coat" attitude, the usually conservative Utah based brewery does the unusual- kicking off with a strong IPA with the hop-forward balance that's highly worthy of the style but also capturing a rustic and simple taste.

As the ale pours, there's really no surprises: its camel-hued body is amber and mildly hazy. As a foamy cap frames the beer, its lace circles the glass with concentric patterns. Its a frothy ale that simply sells its IPA character well.

Bold citrus aromas are of grapefruit, fresh orange zest and fresh-cut grass. As the malt influence grows it allows a thin honey, lightly toasted grain and caramel character to prop up the hops- but the focus squarely relies on the beer's high hop character.

Its taste starts out with graham cracker, light caramel and medium honey sweetness. But that sweet taste proves short-lived as the citrusy middle palate unleashes pink grapefruit, ripe orange and a hint of lemon and leaf. As the ale develops into a dry malt taste, its finish is bitter with citrus pith, pine resin and a sharp grassy note.

Medium-light in body, the ale kicks off with a more moderate sense as the malt sweetness seems to balance. But as the hops take command, the sweetness quickly fades and the hops dry the beer with its acute acidic sense and with its piney and grassy bitterness. Its mild warmth plays delicately on the palate and facilitates its supreme drinkability.

I love how this ale is dry, clean and crisp. But its leafy and grassy taste is a bit too prevalent to celebrate its only moderate citrusy smooth tones. Its an all-day, every-day beer that will find comfort in my glass at any time.

This is a very unique, well-balanced IPA with a nector-like mouthfeel. It has a strong malt presence with floral forward hops and tropical fruit undertones. Easily in the top 5 beers I've ever had.

Note - This beer is also very affordable at just over $1/beer.

On draught at The Bier Stein, appearence is orange with a creamy white head leaving thick, tight lace rings.

Smell is pungent, resinous piney hops.

Taste is similar, but not as dank. Fairly malty, cheap 2-row, a little dirty.

Mouthfeel is oily, medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty solid. Not great though, an average west coast hop bomb. Overall impression of coarseness...
