Pours clear golden with huge head and lacing. Monster pine aroma and hop punch up front with decent malt finish to balance out the bitterness, medium bodied mouthfeel. Very good IPA.

Great aroma of floral and citrus hops. Some grapefruit, peachy citrus like hops with a nice malty backbone. Taste is malty with the same hop profile but maybe a bit of piney resinous finish. Almost tastes more like a double ipa. Full flavored and very good. A bit more bitter finish than I like but an ipa I would definitely buy again. I like the aroma better than the flavor, but if you want a mix of piney and citrus this one works well.

Golden-amber, white head and decent lacing. Grapefruit, floral, and mild grain aroma. Medium bodied, flavor like aroma, nice balance, medium bitterness, mild tongue tingler.

Beautiful pine and hops on the nose. Pours a clear amber. Very clear taste and great balance. Little bite.

Hoppy but not at all astringent. I liked it. Nose is great for a hoppy ipa.

Amber color. Sweet malt and hop initial sips. High alc is masked by big malt sweetness. Slightly grapefruity and chewy. Not the first ipa I would reach for, but definitely if I was to recommend a sweet brew. With high hop content. jb (3269) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Interesting, another Utah beer. For years never had one, then went to Utah and got some, and ever since I’ve been seeing Utah beers finally get imported to NY. Nose is nice - flowers + grapefruit. Silky fruity mouthfeel. Very dry hoppy finish, also noticed tropical notes in the palate. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Une canette meilleure avant le 4 février 2014. Cette IPA a une robe cuivrée et un col mousseux qui ne tient pas la route. Au nez, elle offre principalement des parfums de pamplemousses et d’arbres à aiguilles. En bouche, les houblons citronnés sont très puissants. Heureusement que des bons malts peu sucrés offrent un réconfort à mes papilles. Au palais, le liquide n’offre rien de déplaisant. Les bulles piquantes soulignent chaque trait d’amertume mais possèdent aussi un pouvoir nettoyant. La texture qui est huileuse ne souffre jamais de cette agitation. La finale est bien verte comme une huile tirée d’un sapin bien jeune et fringant. Une IPA bien ficelée. bmwarner (1) - - DEC 1, 2013 does not count
Grabbed a six pack from the local liquor store ($10+) but it was oh so worth it....
Color: Beer was golden/amber in color and looked like apple juice.
Clarity: Beer had normal clarity and not much cloudiness.
Head: Beer had nice head retention, about the size of my pinky fingernail.
Aroma: Beer smelled so good! I really enjoyed the fruity aromas like citrus, pineapple, mango and topical fruit notes. There was also a strong hoppy presence and a pine smell. It was quite refreshing.
Bouquet: Beer had hints of fruity hops and toasted malts. There was also a hint of caramel that really came together nicely.
Off Odors: no off odors noticed, just a strong hoppy smell.
Balance & Flavor: I thought the beer was very well balanced and not to overwhelming in any area. The tropical fruity notes and strong hops produced an excellent beer.
Off Flavors: No off flabors noticed. The beer was just a little bitter but not too bad.
Mouth-feel/Body: Beer was light-bodied and had a soft mouth-feel. Once the beer hits your lips, it’s so good! Very easy to drink.
Tail: Beer had a nice tail that coated your throat but didn’t stay longer than necessary.
Carbonation: Not too carbonated- just right
Overall, this beer has a great flavor and can easily be a picnic or lawn mower beer. The refreshing taste makes it great for spring and summer!
