3.5/5 rDev -7.4%
Beer #68 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.
This is a very malty double ipa. What hop tones are there are salty and earthy and not very interesting. Overall, it seems rather muddled and undefined. And there is a boozy tone to it that seems a bit much. The verdict on this one: so-so.

A. A beautiful light cherry look. A good two to three inches of head which quickly receeds, yet leaves a foaM.m behind.
S. A very sweet, nutty smell. Refined, not overpowering.
T. Initially a fair amount of hopiness, with a medium body. A bit of a tart, barley wine taste.
M. Little hoppy after taste for a double IPA. A definite hint of alcohol, similar to barley wine.
O. Easy to drink, good bang for buck. A good beer to start the night.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to amber color with an off white head. In the aroma, some mellow orange citrus hops. In the taste, dry orange citrus and a a little boozy. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry hop and alcohol presence in the aftertaste. Big citrus hops, which are good, and a small alcohol presence, which makes it a bit too much.

Even with a gentle pour, this beer produced a beautiful inch of off white head. Soft citrus and piney aroma, the beer has a very wonderful balance of hops and malt. I would say a citrusy and vanilla prominence to the taste. I enjoy double/imperial ipa's and would say this is one of the best ones I have had. Very drinkable for 9.5 abv. A thick mouthfeel but very tasty and would go well with a host of spicy foods or a bold steak. The lacing is beautiful. This seems to go in contrast with other reviewers but i really enjoy this beer. I would say give it a shot if you can find it.

Whipped up head with more craters than dimples, easily over three fingers during the initial pour, loosely knit enough to settle down into an even thick coating across the surface, the lacing is ultra-sticky and remains in full sheets rather than thinner streaks. The liquid is a noticeably dark copper to amber color, stays transparent this notwithstanding, only the tiniest smattering of bubbles visible. The nose is thick and pungent, even if not the longest lasting, coconut custard, pine sap, candied orange peels, floral musk as well as sharper peppery and grassy notes, curiously the apricot, peach, pineapple fruit seems to get lost in the mix while in no way weak, ends with an earthy and close to peaty flourish. Full-bodied, verges on a foamy attack, only the herbal bite and overall bitterness slices away the foam to prevent suffocation by down pillow. The pepperiness takes it up a notch, more pith in the lemon to grapefruit citrus. By the mid-palate vanilla, coconut and caramel accents salve some wounds. Gets a little creamier as it opens into the apricot, peach, nectarine, fig fruits. Not very biscuity, some darker grains present. Mouth texture is sticky and resinous. Not aggressive per se, however, nothing to just pop and pour without some prep work first.

Appearance is a dark copper with half a finger of head. The head dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing behind on the glass. The nose is both piney and hoppy. The upfront flavor is a solid blend of malt and hops. The finish is not nearly as hoppy as top flight IPAs, but this still remains a solid effort. There is a touch of alcohol on the finish as well, but it is nothing terribly unpleasant.
