4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy deep golden, with a fine bone white head, recedes to a thin cap and leaves a lot of thick lacing. Very nice looking pour. The aroma is powerful, with fresh floral hops, spruce, peach, sage. Medium bodied, solid carbonation, slightly sticky, lots of piney, grassy, and orange hop flavors, with a crisp, clean, bright, bitter finish. Doesnít feel like 7.3%.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - loads of citrus fruit, apricot, and mango.
A - poured a clear pale gold with minimal head.
T -sweet malt flavors kept in balance by bitterness. Hop flavors of citrus and apricot & mango agree withthe aroma.
P - medium bodied with a hint of hop and malt stickiness kept in check by good carbonation.
O - Great beer overall. Iíd describe this a Wyldís big brother. Tastes like a fuller bodied version of Uinta Wyld. Which is a complement as Wyld is a fine pale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop: Poured a dirty golden blonde color with a thin layer of frothy head across the top. In the aroma, my nose detects a bold aroma of citrus trees and leaves with priority towards orange and grapefruit, however, a sweet scent of peace in the background. The flavor is overly bitter with a heavy dosage of oily green hops that give off a strong taste of spice and artificial citrus flavors. For sure a palate and taste bud puckering IPA.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
32oz Growler, nice fresh batch from mid-December 2011. Served at around 45F.
Pours lightly cloudy yellow/orange/gold with a nice two finger off-white head that leaves beautiful sticky drippy rings of clumpy lacing and holds a nice cap. Purty!
Aroma starts with real nice citrus, mostly tangerines, some lemon, some pineapple, grapefruit, touch of apricot, along with floral, grassy and pine notes underneath, some light cracker malt as well. Very nice.
Flavor is juicy citrus, tangerines, orange, some grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, a little pine and grass, light bready malt, mild sweetness, and very nice bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little creamy, a touch sticky, good carbonation.
Impressive! Iíve been hearing nothing but good things and after missing out on a batch of bottles at the store, I HAD to snag a growler before it disappeared and Iím glad I did. Very juicy IPA, incredibly drinkable and one I will definitely buy again in the future!
