I enjoyed this DIPA on draft at Galaxy Hut in Arlington, VA. This one of the few kegs that made it east from Utah.
A: The color was about what I would expect from a typical ipa. Nice and bright orange with a decent creamy but thin head.
S: I loved the noise on this one. Lots of great floral hop. This is one of the best smelling IPAs I have ever had. I'm guessing it had to do with the freshness but this literally smelled like pellet hops I use for home brewing. Maybe Amarillo, don't quote me on that,
T: Obviously very hoppy and a bit sweet. The abv is masked well but come to think of it everything is masked well as the hop overpowers everything. I get a bit of sweet malt on the finish.
M: Nothing crazy here. Maybe a bit on the thick side but consistent with the style.
D: The abv is masked fairly well its still there and doesn't make this one sessionable. Also given the sweetness and the pallet destroying hops I would only be interested in one or two of these in one sitting.
Overall: This is a great DIPA and Im glad I got a chance to have it fresh and on draft. Utah ? Who knew...

Uncork the 750ml bottle and you immediately get a beautiful citrus smell. Poured with a 2 finger off white head that turned to a nice frothy foam, and left great lacing. Darker golden color with a bit of orange and not quite clear. Taste is strong with citrus, especially grapefruit, and hops, also with a very nice aftertaste. Mouthfeel crisp and creamy with strong carbonation. Impressive lack of taste of alcohol for 9.5%abv. Overall I would recommend, and will buy again.
