EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 8/9/13: Citrus, peppery hop aroma, with light doughy malt. Similar hop flavor, with a peach-y finish. Firm bitterness, and sweet, bready malt in the background.

Strong hop flavor and aroma: Spicy, tangerine. Firm bitter flavor, with some light malt: Sweet, bread, a little caramel. Lingering bitterness, with some nice apricot/citrus/spice in aftertaste. Mouth-tingling goodness...

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Serving: 500 ml. bottle via trade from Sledutah. It pours a slightly hazy amber color. The nose is a mix of pine resin and tropical fruit notes. There is a big malt profile with the caramel notes working against the astringent hops and tropical fruit notes. A little sweet but good.

rollinsr (748) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours a very light golden color with two fingers of frothy-white head. Aroma is sweet caramely citrus. Flavor is very sweet with a little hint of pine and grapefruit bitterness. This is a very good Double IPA that has the best of both the bitter and sweet worlds.

August 23, 2012 - bomber shared by sledutah with me, Mes&Sim, ChrisO ... others. Cool label. Hazy gold with a huge fluffy white head. Floral, somewhat boozy aroma, with onion? Taste - ooh, nice - straddles the line between BW and DIPA - fairly malty, complexly bitter, a little boozy (still some onion in that hop melange) - has a real citrus zest bite to it. Average body, good carbonation, fairly long bitter finish. Nice - lots of different hop character competing all at once.

Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle-purchased at the brewery Murray location Aug 2012-pours bright deep orange with a small soapy white head. nose is alcohol and pine, bigtime pinesol, which i actually like. mostly pine and lite sweet alcohol on the nose however. flavors are big sweet hops/malts, consisting of pine, resin, sweet malts, and huge resin on the finish. a pretty standard IIPA however, very good for the style. long piney/woody finish with sweet undertones. this is a very solid IIPA , totally making up for this breweries shitty 4% beers at the bar Iratings to come soon) . Im just glad this was good, especially for the money.

Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle shared at Craft, many thanks to Craig. Pours hazy gold with a sturdy, white foam head. Big, sugary grapefruit nose. Sweet flavor though lightly drying with pale malts, further grapefruit and other, rindy citrus. Full bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sticky, resinous on the finish, more grapefruit. Good DIPA.

vipinvelp (4429) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2012
Orange yellow with decent, somewhat bubbly, white foam head, lacing to glass. Nice bitter hops aroma, like the taste hoppy all over. Good long lasting bitter aftertaste. Good beer, moreover as I am drinking this at the brewery. (Salt Lake City 201208)

Brigadier (3680) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
500 ml bottle
Being an unusual size I wanted to give this a try when I had plenty of time. Even though it is only about a pint and a half at 8% this is not really a beer to rush through. I would not want to either - the contents are a good example of an imperial IPA that doesn’t try to go over the top. Hopefully the saison is just as good.

Aroma / Appearance - Transparent coppery fluid pours into the welcoming glass. A wispy white head sits idly on top. Daisies, roses, and orange peels highlight a floral bouquet worthy of a centerpiece. Resin lurk in the background like a tree during maple syrup season.

Flavor / Palate - Chewed up orange peels scour the previous tastes off the tongue. They then work on sticking to every corner of the throat. A nice mixture of floral and malty aspects merge into a solid beer. I never knew that Salt Lake City could hold such gems.
