3.8/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #63 (Apr 2012):
LOOK: Bright golden; lovely lace
SMELL: Grassy, grapefruit pith, pine cone, catty, bready grain, yeast, clean esters, guava
TASTE: Citrus rind, mint, clean booze, pungent hop bitterness, aspirin, dried grass, nutty yeast, bread crust, ripe tropical fruit, piney; dry, bitter finish
Balance was not the intention here—the brewer was spot-on when they said “sensory overload.” If we had to gauge the IBUs, they would likely score past the human threshold in bitterness, but not enough to cloud out the flavor. Enjoy, hopheads! This one is for you!

Pours a hazy yellow with an orange tint. Fat pillowy head of foam that fell to some sticky pretty lace. Some effervescence coming up from the bottom. This beer was majestic in the glass. Nose is orange citrus, mango, woodsy pine and grass. Fat. sweet, sugary malt backbone. Smells refreshing. Hops go a little earthy as it warms and the malt sweetness deepens. Taste is pure poise. Mild caramel and sweet, hops are bright and perfumey, resiny against the grainy malt. Slightly metallic and a touch of booze but I like a touch of booze in a DIPA. Dry and creamy with lingering essential bitter. This DIPA pitted a vast malt depth against a dry hoppy exuberance and came out straight forward and generous. Drank easy, happy and the malt was positively vital. Utah seems to like malt as much as I do.

32oz growler, kegged Nov 24, 2012. Served at around 45F.
Pours lightly hazy amber with a one finger white head that quickly recedes to a wispy cap and leaves some spotty lacing behind.
Aroma is orange, tangerine citrus, some apricot, decent amount of caramel malt. Good, but not great strength.
Flavor is orange citrus, light apricot, fair bit of caramel malt, mild sweetness in the middle, moderate to good bitterness, mild alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, bit sticky, good carbonation.
OK Double IPA. More caramel malt than I care for in the style, though.
