This is an excellent double IPA that really surprised me, as I'd never heard of this line before.

Amber, it has a medium-large, off-white head that slowly shrinks to a lasting, thin foamy top and produces some good lace.

Aroma is caramelly and raisiny-fruity-grainy, a bit like a strong maibock alcoholic quality, with light but clear pine and orange plus a hint of grapefruit and a bit more grain underneath.

Taste is clearly alcoholic up front, but smooth, not rough or overt at all, again alcoholic in the way a good maibock would be but stronger - caramelly-raisiny toasty grain, spicey, warm, with light leafy-pine, light citrus, leaning toward orange mostly with a hint of grapefruit thrown in, some more light resin. It is quite well balanced, slightly tending almost to the sweet side before the citrusy-resiny-leafy bitterness and spiciness balance it out at the finish. It retains good balance, well-royundedness and some good complexity throughout and is amazingly drinkable, never cloyingly sweet nor overly bitter. The feel is excellent, again nicely balanced, firm and smooth with slight oiliness and no roughness, yet neither truly oily nor heavy, staying light on the tongue. It is one of the closest examples to Pliny the Elder I have had in terms of complexity, drinkability, and balance between strenght, sweetness, bitterness, malt and hop. It' snot quite up to Pliny, but it is pretty darn close.

If you have NOT had this beer in the last two months, I highly suggest a second go at it. I lived in the SLC area for 4 years and have had this direct from squatters many times. Originally I found the hop character too overpowering upfront compared to the middle and back end of the beer. It seemed like a desperate attempt to satisfy the biggest of hop-heads. HOWEVER, Squatters has seemingly tweaked the malt character of this beer. It now has a deeper middle and back end profile that balances out the initial hop onslaught. IMO this is one of the best widely available craft brews in the SLC area at a damn good price. Do yourself a solid.. check for a more recently brewed version and give er' another go if you previously wrote it off!
