This is a great IPA. Perfectly balanced, you get all the hop without it being overpowering. A beautiful citrus/pine aroma. I'll be picking this one up again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: pours a very light copper, or a very dark golden color with a nice off white head. Aroma is grapefruity. The taste is, nice... not overpowering. It still has a great solid bitterness, and the familiar cirtus. But there is a solid malty or breadiness that keeps it all in check. Tasty. I just picked this up at random at the store the other day, and have to say... it was a solid lucky pick. Good Beer.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with great lacing. Aroma is apricot, mango, and pineapple fruity esters, citrus and pine hops with honey and biscuit malt. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, supporting light malt, tropical fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Thanks MaxwellDeus for my first Utah beer! Quite citrusy in the nose; a touch of pine and some passionfruit/mango in there as well; caramel/cereal lightly backs up the hop profile. Appearance is mostly transparent copper with sticky, frothy white head. Nice, complex hop flavors up front, a bit more of the pine shines through, but fruity and delightful overall; the malts leave a slightly sweet impression underneath, but the hops are expressive enough in their own right. The finish is fairly bitter and abrupt. Palate is medium, sticky and soft. Really a very good IPA, stands comparably to West Sixth IPA made here in KY.

Nice IPA. Piney hops character in the aroma and flavor. Iím more a fan of citrus hops, but this one isnít in-your-face with the piney hops, so I really enjoyed it.

Ughsmash (7283) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a creamy, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange, apricot, and other fruity hops over sweet caramel and lesser biscuity notes.. a little aspartame right on the back of the nose.. solid. The flavor found sweet caramel and a bit of bready malts at the core, with quasi-juicy pine and orangey bitterness around.. finished bitter and engaging, with citrus and pine leading. Light-medium bodied with a good feel through the palate.. moderate carbonation.. good stuff!

Aromatic and restrained for an IPA. Not the regular brassy hop flavor. An ipa a little more friendly for the masses, but sure to please the devout followers. High points include the round palate, the floral aroma, and the nicely balanced malt. ---This rating is likely a compilation of my and my roommates' musings over our latest beer pick up.
