Clear gold with a small white head. Some splatters of lace.
Smell is herbal hops with bready malt.
Taste is herbal leather hops with just right malt support.
Mouthfeel is light and a bit low on carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and bitter.
Overall one of the best session IPAs I have tried.

"Our Ale 208 is crisp with a light malt body and subtle, citrusy, hop character. It’s brewed with 100% Idaho grown grain, hops and pure Idaho spring water. The package imagery is inspired by and pays tribute to Idaho’s rich agricultural heritage and its diverse and beautiful vistas. The name comes directly from the 208 area code that encompasses all of Idaho."

Growler picked up at Grand Teton's 25th Anniversary party at Bittercreek last night.

Pours a very clear light golden with a nice long lasting white head.

Nose shows a very balanced light grainy maltiness playing against a light citrus hoppiness.

Flavor mirrors the nose perfectly... very drinkable... No flaws.

Light/body with a decent carbonation... again, very quaffable.

Got this at valleywide in a sixer. Born on date is less than 1 month old.

Appearance: medium golden amber with one finger thick foamy white head.

Smell: mostly malts with a little yeast and some sweet hop aroma.

Taste: A well balanced ale. For a session it has malts and hops perfectly balanced.

Feel: good head, smooth carbonation.

Overall: a great session ale. I will buy it again.

Great change from the norm. A lightly hazy golden color and a delightfully lingering head. A very mild hops and an unfiltered feel. Pretty tasty at a warmer than chilled temp and awesome at a near frost temp. My new favorite beer for 2016?!

A fairly dry and crisp ale that ten years ago I would have considered an IPA, but living in the Northwest where the beers have grown much hoppier, especially IPA's, this now seems rather mellow. This is a very drinkable brew and marries nicely to warm evenings on the deck or in a hammock. It's listed as a session beer and you could easily spend the evening downing several of these.
