4.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma is rather subtle but palate is huge. Resin and spice ride a finely tuned bitterness to deliver an impressive amount of flavor and character. Hop expression and mouth feel are rather complex and evolve through the finish. Malt character contributes significantly to complexity but remains less than obtrusive allowing hops to shine. Outstanding beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Surprisingly well balanced considering the level of hopping. High alcohol and bitterness masked by the caramelly sweet backing. Winchell brought this beer back to Lawrence with him from SLC in 2013.

Fruity grapefruit nose. Crisp and clean finish, taste of citrus, grapefruit, and slight orange. Very easy to drink. Mild bubbles with a hint of tartness and fresh hoppy note.

Courtesy of douglas88. Cool German style half liter bottle pours murky copper with off tan head. OK, what did you send me Doug? Is this Exponential Hoppiness from Alpine or something. Good lord it smells amazing! I get full assertive levels of spicy hops, fur tree, earthy hops, pine, some rich citrusy grapefruit and slick malt sweetness pulling everything together. Wow! Was not expecting this. The taste has a robust load of hop flavor from spicy hops to grapefruit hops to a truck load of pine hops and rolling into some bitter pine resin. The river of sweet malts undulating underneath provides a great base to the flavor experience. This has loads of varied hop flavor goodness with sharp pulses of hoppy bitterness coming through here and there. World class brew here.

Shared with ibrew2or3. thanks Dave. What a gem this one was.
amber color, tan head.
amazing hop aroma, this is indeed a massive mastodon like hop crushing experience.
lots of pine, grapefruit, got watermelon as well. This is not doing it justice, but, a perfect nose, huffing a whole pine forest in a glass, very fresh.
Last DIPA that left such a mark, was Alpine Exponential Hoppiness, this one is just as fantastic.
flavors are identical, thick hoppy palate, i keep geting some fresh watermelon mixed in with outstanding dry hopping. piney hops, lots of tropical fruits, some bitter citrus and grapefruit, while keeping a mild malty character.

500ml bottle from Douglas88. Nose is pine, a bit of sugary caramel, and grapefruit. Cloudy orange with a medium, lightly lacing, pale yellow head. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, a citrusy sweetness, and some caramel in the background. Finishes nice and bitter.

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...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 mL bottle from the brewery downtown SLC - Pours a slightly hazy yellow orange color with smallish white head. Aroma is totally bursting with grapefruity, citrusy hops, just dripping with riseny hops, also with a touch of toasted malts - but really, this is dominated by hops. Flavor is very hoppy, with piney hop resins, with a touch of caramel and oak. Finish is quite bracingly bitter. Palate is a bit thin, but this is a minor complaint. This is great. Very much like a west coast IPA - a total hop bomb, and really quite bitter. I really like it.

Pours hazy golden. Hoppy pine and grapefruit nose. Taste is sweet malt with well balanced grapefruit bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium. A great IPA, less creaminess and maltiness then most double ipa's.
