I had this one at kickoff of the Super Bowl. I was very impressed with this one. Most of the Squatters brews I’ve had were mediocre so I wasn’t expecting much. Nice dark amber with a long lasting off white head. Very hoppy aroma and taste. I’m impressed.

highibus (774) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2011
On tap at 1702 in Tucson. Really nice hop aroma with decent white head. Extremely good lacing marking each and every sip. Medium body with just enough malt to counter act the wonderful hop presence. This is the first beer from squatters thayt I have really liked and I really like it.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Appearance was hazy orangish gold with creamy off white lasting 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are floral citrus, piney hops then hints of crystal, pale and caramel hops, slight alcohol nose. Taste are sweet mild malt backbone then grapefruit, pine, lemon and orange hops with a touch of alcohol warming. Palate was creamy smooth rich CO2 with medium-full body, then a lasting malty fruity, piney finish. A good solid DIPA but...

Found this beer in Las Vegas on the way home from Utah. Pleasant surprise . Golden orange color. Some citrus on the nose. Medium to full body. Very good balance of bitter hops with a solid backbone of malt. Finish is is on the sweeter side. Tasty beer and would drink it again.

The hops come out in the aroma, but the taste is all soapy. It’s a baseline double IPA, nothing special.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Aroma: Lightly fruity, herbal, with light caramel/sweet malt.
Flavor: Sweet, light caramel malt flavor is dominant; with citrus/generic fruit and spicy hop flavors, and substantial bitterness that comes through more in finish/aftertaste. A tiny bit of alcohol flavor, and warming sensation. In the grey area between IIPA and Barleywine.
