12 oz bottle pours copper with good foam head. Aroma is piney and herbal. Taste is the same with spicy, bitter hop flavor with long bitter finish. A little sticky and dank. Not balanced and not my favorite IPA.

Super bitter, light malt & hop flavors & aroma. Maybe old sample, but poor IPA balance.

Deep orange amber with large off white head. Pine and floral hops with some mango and grapefruit. A good sweet caramel malt base leads to excellent grapefruit and pine resin bitterness. Medium creamy mouth with average carbonation leading to a long finish where the sweet malts makes another appearance. Nicely balanced IPA.

A pretty good little fucker. Chestnut with an ivory head, like it matters! A bit darker than the average India. A pretty solid example of the style, no frills really, just a well balanced potion with neither malts nor hops winning the ongoing war.

Good beer, does not live up to the label’s claim of intense hops. Smooth IPA, worth a try, but not an incredibly hoppy one.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange color with a thick white head that sticks around. Aroma is tropical fruit, a little breadiness. Taste is piney, slightly peppery, some fruit in the background and finishes with a nice fading bitterness. Medium mouth feel. This beer is prettt great; a little different than the average IPA but definitely in a good way.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
1 aroma citrusy orange, I get some stinky feet as it warms
2 orange with an eggshell lingering head
3 slight sweetness followed by a full hop flavor, toasty
4 medium body with a chewy hop aftertaste, med carb, slightly astringent
5 tastes better than it smells, overall a decent IPA. Being in Utah, this beer could have been stored in a hot warehouse for some time.
