Very solid IPA. Has a sweet malt taste with plenty of hop flavor, and a very nice bitter finish. Refreshing and tasty brew.

optimator13 (31) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottled on date: 10/20/11. Pours a nice amber color, with a light tan colored head that produces some nice sticky lacing. Aroma is very malt forward, which I tend to prefer for Imperials. There’s some resinous pine and a hint of alcohol on the nose as well. Pleasant, but nicely intense bitterness attacks the front of the tongue, while soothing caramal, nutty, sweet malts finish the taste. There’s definite heat here...doesn’t hinder the experience. Nice full body, very slick and oily. This is a nice IIPA, I can’t always find it fresh, but when I do, I can’t help but pick up a six pack.

Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Another beer out of Utah. What is going on up there? This double – 9% alcohol – is daunting for a lunch. But it was refreshing and IPA fnas should find/try it. The draft poured a clear amber. Plenty of citrus and pine. Lovely head and nice lace. It’s a pretty darn good DIPA.

MadIndian (2373) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Amber pour with a grapefruit, pine, bread and earth aroma. A big citrus and floral hop / pine taste with a blend of earth. A nicely blended brew.

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2011
Amber. Not much head. Sort of a dull hop aroma - there’s lots in there, but they’re dull. Earthy, but the bitterness is low for the style. The malts, which are slightly caramelly and a little bit earthy, don’t mix well with the hop character... not something I’d get excited about.

Bottle 355ml @ Papsoe
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape and pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 16, 2011
355mL thanks to blutt59. Pours a clear orange orange with a large, off-white head. Rings of sticky lace. Nose is sticky booze, red fruits, sweet nectarine. Taste up front is richer, syrupy, and sharp boozy. Ends with pretty soft balance. Not bad at all but sugary and pretty boozy. Not really bitter at all.
