Had on draft at "the pub" in Las Vegas. Great lacing in the glass....aroma is the best part of this brew. Overall great....leaves just a bit to want on the overall taste...but would certainly get again

Bottle at Squatters in SLC. Amber gold. Nose of piney and vegetal hops. Fairly malty and full bodied, but dry, slightly dank finish. Solid and better than I expected.

Bottle from Dresden, thanks man! Golden pour, with light finger of white head. Aroma is heavy malt sweetness, pine, and citrus. Taste is bitter up front, followed by some malty sweetness, light floral, finish is crisp with some bitterness, mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Very quaffable well done.

Nuffield (3711) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Really nice aroma--notes of basil on a pizza--but the flavor offered more of a hodgepodge of piney flavors. Somewhat viscous body. Only ok.

HIGHB4LL (632) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger of tight off-white head, amber color, clear, head lasts, good lacing. Aroma: heavy pine and caramel, light grass. Palate: medium full body, average carbonation, bitter and dry finish, sticky texture. Taste: sweet smooth caramel into tints of grassy bitterness, then into a very heavy piney bitterness. Overall, super smooth for how bitter the beer is, very nice balance, really basic flavors, but very solid.

drjay44 (2703) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle, shared with multiple others at brewclub. Pours a thin off white well retained head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, slight cereal malts, no esters, balance to the hops.....taste is slightly sweet, with light toffee/caramel, pine, resin grapefruit peel , light licorice, pineapple, finishing with a sharp bitterness....mouth feel, medium body, astringent, slight alcohol warmth. This is a simple, sweet, very bitter I/DIPA. The bottle may have been too old. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5

undsioux7 (807) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours deep amber/brown with a pillowy off white head. Earthy floral and grapwfruit aroma with some biscuit malt. Taste is same as the aroma with dank hop flavor and medium bitterness that lingers. Dont care for the aftertaste. A bit to danky and earthy for a dipa

BeerCoff4025 (27) - Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass, golden orange color with small head. This IPA definitely has a sweeter taste than most doubles. The hoppy base is complemented with tastes of citrus (orange and lemon) and a hint sweetness. Not a bad beer, but nothing special. Unique taste does make it stand out a little more than others.
