  1. Big Cottonwood

    5.75% ABV

    Named after Big Cottonwood Canyon in the Wasatch Mountain Range, this amber ale poured true to its name in color with tiny, active bubbles. Smelling of caramel malt, the nose also had wonderful toasty notes. The flavor is full of notes of caramel, bread, and balanced out with some floral and citrus hop character from dry-hopping with Cascade hops.

  2. IPA

    6.5% ABV

    Pouring a golden copper color like Garfield with tiny bubbles and a white frothy head, this brew erupted in aromas of tropical hops with notes of pineapple and mango. Full-bodied with a lingering hop bitterness, this is a solid, well-balanced IPA.

  3. Hop Rising Double IPA

    6.5% ABV

    Bright orange in color with some sticky lacing and super fine carbonation, this double IPA opens up with a strong toasty malt aroma followed by some citrus hop character. The taste is maltier than expected, but still lighter in body than the 9% ABV would lead you to believe - overall a very easy to drink, delicious big beer with a resin-y hop bite.
