The beer pours a golden color with a medium head. The aroma is heavy with pine and citrus like pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is more citrus with lemon and grapefruit and there is some malts on the backend. Pretty thick body.

Pleasantly surprised to find such a well crafted beer in Utah. The white foamy head lasted until I finished. Aroma of citrus and pine and dough. Lots of malt up front with sweetness and a nice hop finish. Not the typical double ipa we are used to in San Diego but still very good.

Man! this is good! Oily hop resins backed by a citrus nose. Starts with a bang, lots of flavor, sweet carmel malts, lots of hop flavors of orange., Love the balance, the bitterness is in the background. the finish shows hops, but not dryness. Mmmmm, I like!

PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2014
12oz bottle into a bus pale ale bottom rimmed glass in Vegas 2014. Pours a amber gold bronze. Head is solid and withstanding awhile, lacing is all over and 3cm remains, about. Taste is grainy hops, malt s seem to be more prevalent than the hops exposure really, but thr earth musky ness holds this dips is predatory. Abv is masked quite well, but the malts seem to over ride this brew more than the hop pleasure I expect d IPAs, Drink ability is good, not as gliding as I would have hoped though. Fun, yet strangely concocted.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger of tight off-white head, amber color, clear, head lasts, good lacing. Aroma: heavy pine and caramel, light grass. Palate: medium full body, average carbonation, bitter and dry finish, sticky texture. Taste: sweet smooth caramel into tints of grassy bitterness, then into a very heavy piney bitterness. Overall, super smooth for how bitter the beer is, very nice balance, really basic flavors, but very solid.

12oz can. Pours amber orange, white head. Aromas hop-ish, taste is sweet malt. Decently executed, not special, not one of the pieces of malt crap.
