3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another beer out of Utah. What is going on up there? This double – 9% alcohol – is daunting for a lunch. But it was refreshing and IPA fnas should find/try it. The draft poured a clear amber. Plenty of citrus and pine. Lovely head and nice lace. It’s a pretty darn good DIPA.
Can. Head is initially average sized to large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot), with notes of butter, taffy, corn syrup, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
A sloppy example...very thick, goopy, syrupy mouthfeel, overly sweet (thankfully low acid, though), and the aroma is offensive. Drain pour caliber. jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 Balanced with equal parts caramel malt and piney/herbal hop flavor. Hides the 9% ABV well and drinks more like an IPA than a double. wombat23 (1785) - Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2017
12 oz. can. Pours a clear pale gold, with a fine-grained creamy off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, caramel, pine. Taste is caramel, tropical fruit, pine, orange notes, alcohol. Malty backbone. Warming finish. Good. Iznogud (4359) - CROATIA - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle, 355 ml from state liquor store, St George. Pours cloudy orange with medium white head. Moderate to heavy hoppiness, fruit, peach, pine, caramel malty backbone, moderate sweetness. Lasting dry bitter finish. Good. thegreenrooster (4562) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a pine hop with a strong caramel malt backbone. Flavor is pretty much all malt with very little hop. Everything I hate with some IPA’s can be found in this beer. Way too heavy malt bill. Hops that have faded or can’t stand up to the malt. The best by date on the bottom of the can is 10/27/17, there is no way that can be correct. This tastes poor in the first week of August in the middle of October this could actually be worse? The alcohol is hidden well, that’s all the good I can say about this.

LCI. Uit blik geschonken. Lekkere zoete en lichtbittere dipa, hoppig, fruitig met een prettige nasmaak, niet te bitter. Mooi in balans. Moolesen (593) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle 12oz. Light amber with a small white head. Hoppy aroma with some malt. Rich malty taste with a very bitter finish. jandd1983 (4604) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Can. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of pine, caramel, tangerine and hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with more pine, caramel, tangerine, hops and grapefruit. It had a medium body with a mild bitter finish. Good stuff. coachd (932) - Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Fresh clean aroma. Hop bite followed by a weird soapy flavor. Good palate, but the taste just ruins it for me.
