5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish straw, a bit cloudy, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrusy nose, a little resin and orange peel zest.   Malty tongue, caramel notes.   Soft bitterness follows.   Not a hop bomb by any means, and in fact a nice malty example of a big IPA.   The 9% ABV is well hidden.   Feels a little musty, not too bright or fresh.   Clean finish, but its a bit musty.   Certainly a malty example of an IIPA, which I enjoy, but its not too bright or fresh.   Thanks to pailhead for the bottle!

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle.Pours amber with an off white head. Nice floral and fruity aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Caramel and honey malt flavors, with a the grapefruit, pine, and lemon hoppiness. Dry, bitter, and earthy finish. Alcohol well hidden. Not bad. I would not seek out again, but would certainly drink it again if offered.

DalzAle (2036) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle. Clear orange pour, light lacing and an earthy orange hop aroma. Flavor has a nice solid malt base, astringent strong hops, bitter grapefruit and finished hoppy and a little warming. Decent for being 2+ months old, and at $10 a six pack.

50belair (3617) - Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle at the Flying Saucer. Golden pour with a white head. Tropical fruit aromas. Surprisingly good. Very well balanced with luscious tropical fruit and citrusy hops whose bitterness is offset by a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Kudos to the kids from Utah....

The hops come out in the aroma, but the taste is all soapy. It’s a baseline double IPA, nothing special.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2011
This brew poured up a dark orange colored body with a hefty, frothy off-white head with generous retention and amazing lacing effects on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit (a hint of lemon perhaps?), floral hops, and spices. Flavors of the same. Medium-bodied and whoa buddy, hoppy! For me this was a mouth-puckering experience but a delicious one all the same. For hop-heads you will definitely enjoying this fine brew! Nice dry finish with no harsh aftertastes.

bittermestupid (247) - Canton, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Thanks to Douglas88 for this fine Salt Lake City DIPA. Born Date: 8-10-11 Pours orangish yellow with a slight white head. Smell: Huge malt backbone, honey, some grapefruit and citrus very little pine. Nice balance of malt and bitterness which my nose led to think other wise. Grapefruit, mango, pine, caramel and honey. Coasts the mouth well and finish is long with a good pine and grapefruit presences.

gringo332 (639) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Golden with a great lacy, solid white head. Super fresh pine-citrus aroma. Full bodied maltiness spiked with a solid hop dose; with light orange citrus notes.
