3.5/5 rDev -10.9%
Chill hazed amber colored ale with a small white colored head.
Smells strongly of northwestern hops with a strong fruit aroma. Pineapple is the strongest scent here. Passion fruit, and mango are in there with a much fainter grapefruit and orange aroma.
$tarts out malty with a woody pineapple taste. Flavor stays dry. Strong tea and tropical fruit. Bitterness is about medium for the style. Flavor just isn't as good as the scent with this one.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a good beer but not a great one. They just need to make it taste like it smells.

3.8/5 rDev -3.3%
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.
