Participants from GABF aren't the only ones celebrating this week, Salt Flats Brewing and Distilling have some great news to share as well. Beer Nerd Radio will have the full story today at 2pm on KUAA. This will be an interesting show. See you at 2pm.
Uinta - Trop Nosh XXXperimental IPA: Great fruity aroma. Floral & tropical for the most part. Flavor follows with a WCIPA malt profile that blurs into an NEIPA tropical profile. It's right in the middle of the two styles, and I imagine that's what Uinta was shooting for. Nice stuff.
Uinta - Huckfleisch: I think this is Uinta's first Märzen. Caramel, vanilla & more toasted bread. THIS needs to find its way out of R&D and into regular production next year. 5.0% - Available at Uinta.
Uinta - Knusprig: This Munich Dunkel is bready & toasty with some nice balancing caramel. Yeast esters are light. The toasty grains here are so damn fresh tasting, I could drink this all day. 5.0% - Available at Uinta.
Uinta - Skänken: This Gose has a medium/low tartness. Slightly salty without being briny. Finish tangy. One of the better Goses I've had in a while.- 5.0% - Available at Uinta.
Hopkins/Tsuki Sake - Kanpai To The Moon: This traditional Japanese-style rice lager was fermented on Koji rice, and brewed in collaboration with Tsuki Sake. This lager features a golden-straw appearance with a light and crisp body full of unique savory and slightly tart notes. This is dry - not like a traditional Japanese lager though. The koji adds some sweetness for sure & it takes you back to malts-ville in a roundabout kinda way. Co2 is bright & crisp. Brewed with Pink Boots Hop Blend. Mikey Likey. 5.0% - Only at Hopkins.
RoHa - Strata Off The Vine IPA: Made with 60 lbs. of fresh from the farm Strata wet hops. Notes of dank strawberry, passion fruit, Grapefruit & herbal sage. Finish is bitter for sure. Tasty stuff. 5.0% - Available at RoHa.
RoHa - Hodge Podge Fresh Hop: This pale ale is a literal hodge-podge of hops from Copper Moose Farms & many, many backyards from Wasatch Front & Back. Mostly floral & herbal profiles as these are mostly wild hops. Sooo cool! 5.0% - Available at RoHa.
Policy Kings - URMOM.COM: This Gose was brewed with coriander, Himalayan pink salt and then prickly pear puree added at fermentation. It's made to be a tart Ale with a slight saltiness on the backend and balanced fruity pear notes.
Ogden Beer/UTOG/Talisman - Smashing Pumpkins: Look for an amber hued ale with allspice and hints of cinnamon. A round mouthfeel with medium to light body. 5.0% - Available at Ogden Beer, Talisman and UTOG.
SaltFire - Wet Hop Lupulin Dew: Missed this one. 5.0%
Offset - Fresh Hop Simcoe: Missed this one. 5.0%
Offset - Table Bier (Dry Blonde Ale): High Oil Cascade and Hersbrucker hops deliver a beautiful bouquet of citrus oil and floral notes with just a touch of earthiness. A slightly elevated bitterness more akin to a Pils than a Blonde Ale keeps the drinkability high and really cleanses the palate, inviting the next sip. 4.5% -Available at Offset
Desert Edge - The Haze Between: Tart tangerine and lime Lime give this one a very refreshing finish throughout. The malt is well balanced and not cloying or medicinal. You can pick out all the fruit too if looking for it, but can also just lose yourself in the blend. This was the most tart of the Nectars so far, which is a plus. Very Tasty. 5.0% - Only at Desert Edge.
Roosters - Ogtoberfest Lager: This lager is dry-hopped with domestic Tettnang hops and accentuated with caramel malt and a lovely fruity floral hop aroma. 5.0% - At all Roosters Locations.

Lumberbeard Boysenberry Apricot Zuff: Fruited Kettle Sour ale brewed with boysenberry and apricot. Brilliantly pink and with a fruity and balanced sour profile. 6.3% - Found at Slackwater.
Equilibrium - Astral Projection Into Multiple Galaxies: This collaboration with Widowmaker Brewing uses a hop combination of Galaxy, Strata, and Apollo Hops. It pours milky yellow with aromas of passionfruit creamsicles, lemongrass, and pineapple and a flavor profile of mango, orange sherbet, dank passionfruit, grapefruit, and lime PEZ candy with assorted melon salad notes. 8.5% - Found at Slackwater, Beerhive.
Revision - Hot Tub Jamboree: Made with Mosaic, Cryo Mosaic, Citra and Strata, which bring vibes of citrus, peach, strawberry, passion fruit and a hint of dank smoothness. 6.7% - Found at Slackwater
