Had in Moab while visiting Arches National Park. Pours a deep straw yellow, somewhat clear with a creamy white head. Smells of crisp citrus, malty and a slight earthy smell. Taste: first thing is the malt. A bit more malty than one would expect but the crispness of the citrus and slight earthy pine are enough to push you along past this IPAs big malt backbone. Boarder line APA here but I get it, it's a "session IPA. A nice choice that you can easily pick up in the grocery store. Mouthfeel is medium and fairly dry. Overall a decent offering here.

I feel this session IPA is under rated. Good stuff. Not expensive, and quite refreshing. Not world class by any means. I would never turn this stuff down though. American style IPA that tastes like a crisp IPA with out a lot of alcohol.

Decent session IPA that came on draught. Poured a cloudy golden color with some white foam and sticky lace; smelled like citrus, hops, and light lemon; tasted like a hop bomb, but on the lighter side; smooth going in and some slight sticky pine in the middle; dry aftertaste and bitter. Mouthfeel was a little thin, yet had a little character to round out the whole experience. Overall, a decent session IPA that really drinks like a hopped up pale ale.

Pours a dim golden color with a slight olive hue to it with a well retained head of about 1.5 fingers and good lace retention. The aroma from hops stood out well, but seemed a little strange. It didn't seem too citrusy maybe an orange type scent, but the more I took in the scent the more yeast I seemed to detect. It was very difficult to detect much in the flavor And had a watery feel to it ,but hey this a session IPA so what can you expect?

Have had several times, most recently at Brighton Resort, Utah, poured from pint can into clear plastic PBR beer cup. As a well-balanced session IPA, Johnny's is an excellent choice for lunch on the mountain.

In the land of 4% beers, this one actually has some flavor. Just as good as any other session IPA on the market, and a welcome brew when your grocery shopping in Utah.

Spiral Mugatu hypnotizes Zoolander can design. Looks beery - pale gold with some foam. Bonus points for a tall boy can.

Cantaloupe, tangerine and Midori aroma. Tastes continues the melon theme with tangerine, melon and some much appreciated tongue sticking resin to bring a little character to an otherwise watery body. Run on sentence. Just enough bitterness to pass as an IPA but no really malt character.

Since I’ve been backpacking through Utah I’ve been wondering why Utah brewers don’t make more of the constraints they’re forced to brew in. Hops don’t add any ABV but I’ve only seen a few IPAs. How about some berliners or sour beers? How about a phenomenal Irish dry stout? Rather than select styles that can still be fully articulated at 4% they seem content to keep throwing up water pale ales, ambers and American wheats. Point of my rant being that bravo for Moab for making the most of 4% beer. Most standout brew of my entire trip. I’d rate it higher on a Utah only scale.
