Judging by how solid white the cheek patch is, I would personally say it's actually a drake. We very rarely get good colored drakes here in Utah during the season, at least as far as I've seen.

The pictures I looked at kind of led me to think it was an immature drake as well. Seems the hens don't have as much white on their cheeks.
