12oz. bottle - I think the higher rating simply has more to do with the fact that I like the style - a habit Iím going to have to un-learn, and rate style according to the style, not for what they are not. This one, I like. Pours orange with a very foamy white head. Itís a bubbly co2 popping with grapefruit and flowers. Flavors of a complex mixture of citrus, but with a good balance of sour dough biscuit and roasted nuts. Medium mouthfeel....and a good bitter (hops resin) finish.

Creamy mouth feel. Initial malty citrus hop but with a little pine hop finish that lingers when you breath in. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Dark gold with a grainy head and a cloudy body. Nice grassy and resiny hop aroma. Moderate bitterness for a DIPA, but a good balance.

Hop Rising exudes a kind of oddball charm thatís hard to resist. The artwork on the bottles and cans reveal a weird rustic Americana. Haze, rocky foam, and moderate carbonation in the presentation. Boy is this thing piney. Iíve never meant that quite like I do with Hop Rising. The wet bitterness of pine needles, the herbal bittersweetness from the sap, and even the woodsiness. The malt backbone is caramely and balances things out nicely. This Imperial IPA is a little strange but very drinkable. Thatís a good combo, in my mind.

Huge pine resin Aroma, with some subtle spice and citrus zest. Malts are chewy and a touch sweet, and keep the big hops balanced. Medium bitter finish, soft caramel malts, big pine resins, and fresh, green hop cones.

Pours a light copper color with a fluffy offwhite/tan head. Lacing lasts quite a while. Getting a sweet smell mixed with freshly cut grass. Maybe a bit of fruit, smells closer to a pale ale. First taste was surprisingly sweet. Didnít expect that from a Double IPA. Caramel malt upfront. A bit of citrus and fruit mixed in there. Every once in a while a bit of pine resin taste seems to want to sneak out, but the citrus and malt push it back. Does not seem like a double IPA. Not what I was expecting, but over all it is not too bad of a beer. Price point seems high, but unsure if that is the norm for Utah or not. Will learn soon enough.
