12 oz bottle poured into Dogfish Head tulip glass.

A- Straw colored body with 1 fnger white head and strong lacing.

S- Light citrus hops with a bit of tropical fruits.

T- Taste is citrus hops with a bit of a nutty malt backbone that I don't favor.

M- Mouthfeel is nice and easy to drink for a bigger single IPA.

O- Kind of a run of the mill IPA to me. I was expecting a bit more from these guys, but it is an easy drinker.

Appearance. Pours a very clear amber-gold with half a finger of white bubbly head that leaves behind some decent lace.

Smell. Sweet light malts, yellow grapefruit juice, and some herby-floral hops.

Taste. Light malts and some citrusy hops with a bit of nice bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall. Solid IPA. I'll have another please.

Poured into my new Tripel Karmeliet Tulip, Reviewed on 03.13.12, Bottled on 02.15.12

A: clear, almost see through, copperish body, nice 3/4" white head, thin cap of retention, bits of splasy lacing

N: nice, citrusy, herbal, hints of the malt profile, giving it a balance

T: hops are not overwhelming, malt profile more noticeable than I would prefer, still a nicely balanced IPA, smooth citrusy birth for the finish, not much residual bitterness

M: easy drinking, but malt profile makes this a touch cloying

O: decent beer, for some reason reminds me of 60 Minute

A-pours a nice golden color with a nice white head that lasts a good while and leaves some nice lacing down the glass.

S-Hoppy, citrus and a hint of tropical fruits.

T-Citrus hops dominate, no real tropical flavors as the nose suggested. Not much in the way of malt backbone, it seemed very hop forward. It has a dry finnish.

M-Nice amount of carbonation and not too thick.

D-The combination of high abv. for the style, hop bitterness, and dry finnish cut into its drinkability. I think you would definitely suffer some palate fatigue after a couple of these.

Overall, this is a solid IPA and hope to drink more of it in the future.

3.88/5  rDev -3.2%

Bottled On: 02/15/12

Mostly clean orange-amber color with a solid, sticky covering. Green, candy-like hops in the nose...lots of juicy citrus astringency, pineapple, and some faint grassiness. Juicy, oily hop flavor. Grapefruit and orange with some trailing pine in the back and a tropical flair. Something unfortunately comes across as metallic tasting, but I don't recall that in previous experiences. Medium bodied and appropriately bitter. Though the slight metallic notes knock it down a notch, this is this quite the tasty IPA.

12 oz. bottle poured into shaped Dogfish pint. Bottled on 2/15/12. Man, I wish every beer had this type of bottle dating, printed clearly in white on the green label.

A - Pours a vibrant pale yellow-orange with a one finger white head. The head sticks around for a few minutes then dies to a thin film on the surface which leaves a beautiful lacing down the glass.

S - Strong citrus and pine hops combine with sweet malt and tropical fruits. The balance of bitter and sweet is impressive. The odor lives up to the "hop notch" name.

T - Tastes are more mellow than the nose indicates. The flavor starts with bitter grapefruit and a drying pine. Finishes with malt and tropical fruits. At 83 IBU it is hoppy, but I find the finish to be more fruity and moist in contrast to many hoppy IPAs with a dry, bitter finish. Aftertaste rediscovers some of the hops and lingers for a while.

M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. I would prefer a bit more carbonation but it doesn't come off watery or flat.

O - I picked this one up as a single at the recommendation of the guy at Downtown Wine in Harrisonburg. I was happy to find a seldom seen Utah Brewery with an IPA less than two weeks old. This was very good with the strong point probably being the nose. Good balanced flavor and goes down very easily for a 7.3% ABV. The bottle and label are also cool and they claim it is brewed with wind and solar renewable power. Definitely a beer worth trying if you come across a fresh one.

On-tap at J. Ryan's and I received the first glass after this beer was tapped; which was right before me.
Hazy golden-orange color with a fingers worth of foamy sticky head that sticks around for a long, long time.
Aroma was a nice blend of citrus (mostly grapefruit), floral hops with sweet fruity esters.
Taste was just so well-balanced. Upfront the hop bitterness is evident, only to be completely drowned by sweetness of the fruity esters which give way to a tartness in the finish with a good dose of lingering bitterness. In more ways than one, this IPA just felt like freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. The freshness of an IPA only goes to show how much it can elevate the beer.
Lots of lacing along along the insides of the glass suggests a sizable malt presence. However, the malt is not as evident in the taste. Very well balanced and tasty brew.
The alcohol is also very well masked. Not once did it feel like a beer with a %ABV of over seven.
Definitely worth a try if you enjoy a good IPA.
