Squatters/Utah Brewers Cooperative in Salt Lake City, Utah. This beer is named for a famous canyon in Utah. The canyon is even pictured on the front label, with an old time car and lady in old time garb chilling out. The picture was used with the permission of the Utah State Historical Society. Pretty cool a historical society supporting a brewery! There is a "190" in what appears to be a beehive on the front label too. Not sure what that means. Born 06/13/11.
Caramel and a little boozy aroma. Sweet bread and caramel, malty at first. Some hoppy bitterness comes next, interrupting and balancing. Orange citrus adds more flavor as well. There is a definite boozy component to this beer provided by the 5.75% alcohol. I didn't expect that level of alcohol to be as noticeable nor did I really like that it wasn't incorporated a little better. The finish is dry and lightly metallic. Good balance, good carbonation. Pretty decent beer.
