I am not a big IPA fan, but found this one to be pretty tasty. The color was a redish gold and looked very appealing in the glass.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2013
slightly hazy light copper pour with little head - aromas of malt, grapefruit, and pine - flavors are very even with malt and hops fighting each other the whole time - finishes with a lingering citrus/malt. Very good.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
32oz growler, kegged Nov 24, 2012. Served at around 45F.

Pours lightly hazy amber with a one finger white head that quickly recedes to a wispy cap and leaves some spotty lacing behind.

Aroma is orange, tangerine citrus, some apricot, decent amount of caramel malt. Good, but not great strength.

Flavor is orange citrus, light apricot, fair bit of caramel malt, mild sweetness in the middle, moderate to good bitterness, mild alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, bit sticky, good carbonation.

OK Double IPA. More caramel malt than I care for in the style, though.

Bottle from Red Rock Brew pub in Red Stone in Park City. Great beer. Color was an orangish color. Taste was very smooth with great hop balance with malt. I thought this beer was very well balanced. Not too bitter and not too sweet either like some dipas I have had. This had a great head retention. Nice sticky lacing on glass. I could have drank this all night

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml bottle. Murky dark golden pour, sticky white head - nice lacing. Spruce aroma with some nectarine fruity accents. Full bodied flavor with the requisite grapefruit bitterness. some maple syrup sweetness, a touch of yeast. Mouthfeel nice and sticky. Overall solid.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
This is my second beer from this brewery and again it disappoints. From the State Liquor store in Salt Lake City, UT this came back with my brother Rick. He did not like it either. Pours a gold color with haze and a good sized white head. Nose is strange, and not much citrus shows but some pine. Medium body. Somewhat acrid mouthfeel. Flavor is bitter and the finish is as well. Almost seems spoiled. Drinkable, but barely.

EdInSaltLake (584) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 8/9/13: Citrus, peppery hop aroma, with light doughy malt. Similar hop flavor, with a peach-y finish. Firm bitterness, and sweet, bready malt in the background.

Strong hop flavor and aroma: Spicy, tangerine. Firm bitter flavor, with some light malt: Sweet, bread, a little caramel. Lingering bitterness, with some nice apricot/citrus/spice in aftertaste. Mouth-tingling goodness...

Elwood (3022) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Serving: 500 ml. bottle via trade from Sledutah. It pours a slightly hazy amber color. The nose is a mix of pine resin and tropical fruit notes. There is a big malt profile with the caramel notes working against the astringent hops and tropical fruit notes. A little sweet but good.

rollinsr (366) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours a very light golden color with two fingers of frothy-white head. Aroma is sweet caramely citrus. Flavor is very sweet with a little hint of pine and grapefruit bitterness. This is a very good Double IPA that has the best of both the bitter and sweet worlds.
