Being an unusual size I wanted to give this a try when I had plenty of time. Even though it is only about a pint and a half at 8% this is not really a beer to rush through. I would not want to either - the contents are a good example of an imperial IPA that doesn’t try to go over the top. Hopefully the saison is just as good.

Aroma / Appearance - Transparent coppery fluid pours into the welcoming glass. A wispy white head sits idly on top. Daisies, roses, and orange peels highlight a floral bouquet worthy of a centerpiece. Resin lurk in the background like a tree during maple syrup season.

Flavor / Palate - Chewed up orange peels scour the previous tastes off the tongue. They then work on sticking to every corner of the throat. A nice mixture of floral and malty aspects merge into a solid beer. I never knew that Salt Lake City could hold such gems.

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 (978) - 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.

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.

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
