I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Squatters Pub in Salt Lake City.

Appearance: deep orange hue with a moderate haze and a thick finger of frothy ivory foam. Quite good.

Smell: fruity hops and perhaps a grainy base; intensity is a bit too low.

Taste: herbal, earthy and a little bit fruity hops, atop a grainy base. I don't think you can ask for a more multidimensional flavor in a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and OK creaminess.

Overall: I gave this beer a high taste score because it has a lot going on. That said, I would probably stop after like 2 of these.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a nice deep amber with one finger off-white head that dissipates quickly leaving a pretty, thin lacing.

Smell: Citrus comes through first followed by hops. A little bread aroma comes as well.

Taste: Seems like a good balance of bitter and citrus. 4% alcohol is perfect for this session.

Feel: Carbonation is good, the look is great, and I really like the unfiltered ales.

Overall: I like this maybe more than most other reviewers. It goes down easy and even though I've had a bad experience with squatters growlers, this bottled ale is good.

This beer pours a slightly hazy deep straw with an average head. The aroma starts with grapefruit and orange peel, a touch a very bright pine, and some woodsy English hop notes. The flavor leads with burnt orange and grapefruit, and rounds out into a soft, woodsy warmth with just a hint of citrus carrying through. The mouthfeel is full for such a light beer. Overall this is a very nice drinkable option that does a solid job mashing up and American and English pale ale.
