Pours a light copper color with a fluffy offwhite/tan head. Lacing lasts quite a while. Getting a sweet smell mixed with freshly cut grass. Maybe a bit of fruit, smells closer to a pale ale. First taste was surprisingly sweet. Didnt expect that from a Double IPA. Caramel malt upfront. A bit of citrus and fruit mixed in there. Every once in a while a bit of pine resin taste seems to want to sneak out, but the citrus and malt push it back. Does not seem like a double IPA. Not what I was expecting, but over all it is not too bad of a beer. Price point seems high, but unsure if that is the norm for Utah or not. Will learn soon enough.

Very nice hazy copper and bronze body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, earth, resin and a very pungent and nice canned fruit smell - like peaches, pears and pineapple, all with that viscous syrup thats all fruit juice - nice! Full-bodied; Strong and pungent resin and pineapple flavour up front with a large alcohol flavour, some hop bitterness and a light grassy flavour at the end. Aftertaste is purely sweet, resinous and showing some good alcohol notes throughout, but the discrete hop flavours are fairly muted. Overall, a nice and powerful Imperial IPA with a lot of fruit sweetness - that shows well, but a bit different than most other beers in this style. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Specs in Dallas, Texas on 01-September-2015 for US$1,78 sampled at home in Washington on 07-November-2015.

JDBaker11058 (2008) - Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2015
appearance: clear light amber, a beautifully frothy/creamy white head that leaves a ton of lacing. aroma: blood orange and grapefruit, graham cracker and caramel, some vanilla, then some lemongrass and pine. taste: caramel and vanilla (like a werthers original), a bitter orange creamsicle, lemon juice, light grass. finish: slick, slightly oily, but also somehow watery, with a bit of lingering hops that are almost more aromatic than flavorful, but still feel fake and perfumy. notes: This is not a good double IPA. Palate was slick but somehow watery. Alcohol is not well-hidden. Hops provide some aromatics and some astringent heat, but not much in the way of flavor. Malt bill is unstable as well, seeming both too strong but also muddled. Just couldnt like it. 12 oz can as a souvenier from the brewpub is Salt Lake City.

MaltOne (338) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Pours pale copper, lacy head. Light fruit hop aroma. Taste has pleasant malt base, stone fruit hops, (no grapefruit or pine resin), a hint of pepper spice. palate is light. Starts with stone fruit, merged into the malts finishes quite dry. Overall, lighter than most double IPA, but very drinkable.

Single bottle from W&M Mansfield. A medium golden amber color with a frothy off-white head. Strong sweet aromas and flavors. Herbal-pine notes. Heavy body. Slightly muddled finish, but otherwise a decent DIPA.
