3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours into the glass harvest moon orange with a nice mushy one finger cap. Liked what I smelt when I popped off the top bottle: crushed hops & streams of citrus. The hopes of a hop bomb quickly fade as I start drinking. It’s a tasty IPA, a pretty even mix between the hops & malts, modest bitterness, vague hints of earthy pine, maybe a little citrus, soft carbonation. It’s pretty yum. But for the love of god, this doesn’t rate the scores I see below mine (e.g. Many above 4.0, a perfect 5.0!). Makes those who live outside of the USA suspect that perhaps our neighbours to the south over rate their homegrown a tad. Would drink again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A clean, yet mildly hazed sunny apricot body supports a tall, resilient, off-white cool-whip head creating several dense horizontal lines of lace with intricate extensions filling the gaps above a thick ring and solid cap
Inviting, mildly rich aromas and flavors of grapefruit, mango, lemon rind, lime, and soft grass with minty accents and sweet biscuit malt on a silky, cohesive, creamy medium weight body with a lightly spicy herbal-citrusy, bitter-sweet finish and residual working towards creamy fruit juice, guava, very nicely balanced with vivid hop characteristics
12oz bottle about a week after Kansas roll-out served at 45º into Stölzle IPA Glass

This does not reach the level of hop-noxious as some of my hop-licious favorites, but strikes a very reasonable balance that will satisfy both the regular beer lovers and the hop heads, like me. I love this beer. The malt flavor is outstanding and high nuff octane for high Gravity enthusiasts! Thank God Utah has seen the light. We all agree w Ben Franklin, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be Hoppy"!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear copper with a large off-white head. The aroma has pineapple, mango, sweet malt, orange, caramel and really nice balance. It has a medium body that is ultra smooth and then has some pretty prickly rough carbonation at the end. The flavor starts with citrus zest, caramel, pine, woodiness, crackers and some spice. The finish is dry and has lots of woody / earthy / tropical hoppy notes. Really nice IPA.

Clear, medium gold, tall head.
Full body, dense flavor, rich, low alcohol heat, good carbonation, vibrant and smooth mouthfeel, great balance, lingering aftertaste.
Very bitter but more than supported by background sweetness.
Very hoppy and equally malty, resiny.

Earlier Rating: 12/21/2014 Total Score: 3.7
Clear amber, tall but loose knit and quickly dissipating head.
Slightly earthy nose.
Medium body, full flavored, low carbonation and acidity which results in a flat mouthfeel, long aftertaste.
Very bitter, overpowering the abundant malt background, resulting in a dry beer with a bitter finish.
Hoppy, grapefruity, earthy, malty.
Powerfully bitter, very nice drink if you are in the mood for that much bitterness.
