High bitterness, but with enough malt to balance it. Slight grapefruit notes. Somewhat floral.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden copper with a nice white head that settles to a thick ring with good lacing. Aroma of fruit nectar with a caramel malt sweetness and a bit of pine and alcohol. Taste is very similar with mango and fruit nectar and moderate caramel sweetness. Pine and alcohol flavor come in at the end with a small amount of spiciness. Finishes mostly dry with a moderate level of piney bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi sticky with a medium/full body and somewhat lively carbonation. More sweetness than I like in my IPAs.

2015 bottle. Pours a nice clear amber color with a tan head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with some tropical fruit. Taste is sweet up front with caramel and malt. Over ripe mango. Finishes with an intense pine and herbal bitterness with lots of spice. Pepper and a hint of clove. Full body with an acerbic finish.

Not bad. The taste lingers a bit to long but it has nice aroma and a descent taste. Worth trying

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from the brewery. Nice clear golden amber body with a foamy white head. Vegetal and grass hop aromas with some clean woodiness. Vegetal component follows right into the taste along with a bit of citrus pith bite. A bit of that tongue curling earthy bitterness settles in around the edges. Good caramel sweetness to help balance this bitterness. Ultimately, this bitterness gets a bit heavy but itís still tasty. The alcohol is definitely in play here and possibly is adding to the bitter bite. Long bitter aftertaste. Nice to try something this strong after a lot of 4% Utah beers and Iím looking forward to my next trip there to try more! And I love the compass settings in the glass bottle!

Many thanks to Chris! Dark amber colour. Extremely malty sweetish beginning. Nice fresh and intense hops around, sticky pine, hints of caramel. A bit bitter till the end. Too sweet, nice intense hops. Round, nice.

Many thanks to Chris!! Pours a golden brown with a tan head. The smell is green hops, pine, caramel. The taste is dry and bitter with pine, caramel...a bit sweet. Medium in body with nice, fine carbonation. Bit too sweet for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really like the way this one is built. Iím digging the big resinous, dank hops with a touch of grapefruit juice behind. Malts are full and rounded with a caramel sweetness but not over-stepping the hops at all - rather it stays at most semi-sweet to balanced, with plenty of hop resin coating the mouth leading to a long piney finish. Clean.

This double IPA brings the pain. Its wonderful and the aroma has hops waffing out for weeks.
