3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 23, 2012 - bomber shared by sledutah with me, Mes&Sim, ChrisO ... others. Cool label. Hazy gold with a huge fluffy white head. Floral, somewhat boozy aroma, with onion? Taste - ooh, nice - straddles the line between BW and DIPA - fairly malty, complexly bitter, a little boozy (still some onion in that hop melange) - has a real citrus zest bite to it. Average body, good carbonation, fairly long bitter finish. Nice - lots of different hop character competing all at once.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-purchased at the brewery Murray location Aug 2012-pours bright deep orange with a small soapy white head. nose is alcohol and pine, bigtime pinesol, which i actually like. mostly pine and lite sweet alcohol on the nose however. flavors are big sweet hops/malts, consisting of pine, resin, sweet malts, and huge resin on the finish. a pretty standard IIPA however, very good for the style. long piney/woody finish with sweet undertones. this is a very solid IIPA , totally making up for this breweries shitty 4% beers at the bar Iratings to come soon) . Im just glad this was good, especially for the money.

Bottle shared at Craft, many thanks to Craig. Pours hazy gold with a sturdy, white foam head. Big, sugary grapefruit nose. Sweet flavor though lightly drying with pale malts, further grapefruit and other, rindy citrus. Full bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sticky, resinous on the finish, more grapefruit. Good DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle
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.
