Bottle. Creamy eggshell head on a mostly clear straw orange. Nice pungent, dank, and grapefruit hop aromas. Just a touch of honey sweetness in the flavor, but very clean with pine, resin, and an herbal dank finish. Medium velvety body. Very fresh, and very good.

This beer was recommended to me at a restaurant. It turned out to be a good decision to take the waiter up on it. The beer poured a hazy golden. The aroma was all IPA. Once you take a sip however the beer didn’t have that big IPA bite that you expect. It did have a nice and smooth citrus flavor however. I really liked it and would recommend it in the future.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle, served at the Park City location. Pours medium orange and bright with a great big head. Nice nose of orange citrus bloom. Drinks with a fun boil of acidic hop, and slightly tangy. Drinks nice and light though. (#4631, 6/30/2012)

unclemike (2305) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 2, 2012
poured a hazy orange wiith the most amazing aroma of hops, citrus, hops, orange peel, hops and grapefruit. For such a hoppy beer in the aroma the hops are mild with a nice citrusy/orange taste

Bottle at Salt Lake Airport--Hazy amber, fluffy off white head. Soft bitter floral grassy notes with lighter waves of citrus peel and dried malt throughout. Well balanced from start to finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Utah has come a long way. Impressed...

rajendra82 (959) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Classic DIPA appearance in the form of an amber colored, clear, body, foamy, large head, and gentle strings of streamers. The smell was floral, grassy, and citric. The taste was a bit more vegetal than I was looking for. Green apples, grapefruit, an lemon rind were evident in the taste. There was a considerable level of bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel was medium thick and chewy. Not very memorable.
