This beer was great. Color is a nice clear amber brown with a 1/2 inch of sticky white foam. Smells of fresh harvest hops and a cracker like malt you expect in an IPA. Taste is clean, balanced, and crisp with floral/citrus hops. Malts balance everything out to keep it from being too bitter. Mouthfeel is great for the ABV you don't even notice it's over 7%

Overall I would get this again if I could find a sixer. A pretty stellar IPA.

A - Pours an amber-orange hue with a fair sized pale head. Lacing is average and retention is fair.

S - Hops, floral notes, peppery spice and citrus infused earthy tones round it out.

T - Big hops in this one. A fusion of the two kinds in a nice balance. A malty citrus backbone keeps the beer together with a bitter finish alongside some piney hints. Nothing unbelievable here, yet it does what it strives for well.

M - A medium body with some serious carbonation that I find a bit in excess. It compliments the hops nicely but I would prefer the malts to take a bit more priority than the backseat it takes in this one. Slight oily nature.

O - I really like this one for around $9/sixer. The beer is highly drinkable and well worth picking up if you have yet to enjoy it. It may not be as top-class as some of the more refined brews, but if you are looking for some quality hops at a fair price, look no further.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Bears a bottled on date of May 17, 2012. Pours a slightly hazy amber color, with a 1 inch white sticky head. Nice lacing as the head reduces.

The smell is quite interesting, combining floral notes with a peppery spice. Hints of resin and citrus are also present. I don't smell much of the malt at all.

The taste is another story, however. It had a smooth honey malt taste, mild citrus, and a barely present hop bitter finish.

Slightly astringent as you get further into the beer,
it otherwise has a medium mouth feel.

Overall a decent IPA, but not one that I would eagerly seek out again. In some respects, it tastes more like an American pale ale rather than an IPA. I wish I could've had this when it was brand spanking new, to see if the two and one-half months of age had any impact upon its taste.

So i grab this because I have had Dubhe by them and it was delicious.

Great pour and color, very bubbly foamy head on it.

Smell - warm citrus smell. hints of earthy tones

Taste- YUMMY! light bodied, full of flavor, smooth clean finish. It has pine and lemony taste

This beer really doesn't do anything "wrong." Good representation of the style and at an excellent value for $8.99 a sixer. a good value buy for a go-to hop fix.

Bottled 6/25 - consumed 7/30.

Best explanation both in smell and taste is if you blended Racer 5 and Flower Power evenly...Hop Notch is what you would get. How can you go wrong? Tangerine and Lemon citrus hops...backed by earthy Pine, YUM.

Mouthfeel - Superb. Resinous hop finish that you would find in low ABV DIPAs (8%-8.5%)that lingers just enough. Dry and bitter at the same time in harmony. Malt is there just enough to let you know, but he hops shine throughout.

I'd imagine in a couple more weeks, the malt would tak over a bit too much. I'm glad I got this at the 5 week mark. I'll bet this is DELICIOUS when uber fresh.

Are there better IPAs out there...yes, but as I mentioned, ths beer really does nothing wrong in the hop department. Can't go wrong with a freshly bottled sixer. I like this better than Racer 5. I will be buying more of this. (Thank you for bottle dating BTW)

Well done Utah. I'm impressed. Did I mention grea value too.???

Poured into an Allgash flute on 7/29/12

Bottled on: 05/29/12

A swirling array of violent bubbles cuts through the slightly hazy, amber colored beer while an egg shell white slab of foam rises to the three finger mark. As the head slowly dissipates, raised patches of lace are left across the glass. A thinner layer of suds remains. Great lace overall.

Lemon and pine have no small say in the aroma; in conjunction with a soapy bent, it makes for a clean pine-sol semblance. Hints of grapefruit pith, tangerine and peach. As it warms, the pine-sol aroma fades and is replaced with tropical goodness. Dusty cracker notes balance the hops.

The beer tastes decent enough, what with pine and hollowed out tropical citrus tones, but the hops seem tired here. I'm wondering if they've tapered off quickly in the two months since being bottled. The hops are clearly tilted toward flavor instead of bitterness, but the clean, cracker-like malt backing seems a tad robust by comparison.

Hmm, over time the piney aspect build up momentum and carry the finish with a dry crackle. It seems the tropical flavors have suffered most.

I can't complain much about the feel - crisp, medium body with a mild resin stickiness and ample carbonation that matches the tone of the beer. Something of a coating feel on the finish manifests halfway through the glass.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beer, despite the [somewhat] old bottle. I would absolutely love to try this fresh (even more so if on tap). Hop Notch, indeed.

Jeff, you might want to check this one out at the magical gas station.

Appearance: Amber in color with light brassy hues around the edges. On top is an off white head which is thick like frothed milk.

Aroma: Simple syrup, grapefruit, subtle notes of spice, almond and a little bit of pistachio.

Taste: Lots of grapefruit, citrus hop, piney, twinges of almond. Slight sticky mouthfeel with a wisp of hop dryness in the tail end.

Notes: A solid i.p.a top to bottom. Cheers.
