Very nice as a pale ale. Neutral aroma, medium golden colour with one and a quarter inch head, lacey. A good bitterness, big in-mouth hops, like a double pale ale, rather than a double india pale ale. Citrus taste and well malted; Caramel and a decent mouthfeel. Very drinkable and satisfying.

A - Pours a hazy copper color with a 2 inch tan pillowy head that slowly fades to a small cap. Nice ring lacing present.

S - Sweet malt and medicinal pine hops.

T - Sweet malt, pine resin from the hops, acidic fruit (pineapple).

M - Good carbonation. Hop oils coat the mouth. Creamy.

D - Surprisingly good. Tasty DIPA that I got in a sampler pack on clearance. I would get this again if I ever saw it.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Strong in spirit yet mellow in flavor- all making this beer quite seductive in it's drinkability despite it's understated alcoholic punch.

Ideally displayed, this larger-than-life IPA starts with a bright and lightly diffused hue of copper and amber while carrying a dense and froathy even white head of rocky and foamy proportions. Along with decorative structures of lace (sometimes in great releif), the ale wins the beauty contest with ease!

Juicy hop aromas abound with fresh oranges, appricots, mangos, pineapples, ruby red grapefruits, and a perfumy scent of citrusy scented furniture polish- it sounds odd, but is fantastic in all actuality. Only the thin caramel-laden scent from malt allows for the candy-coated aromas of fruit that the hops generate to start and to dominate.

Malty sweet to start, this hoppy ale has a quick rise from supple sweetness to sharp and zesty citrus flavor from hops that begin to dominate with those grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple blend that can only be described as a citrus/tropical blend. Instead of the mid palate delivering the sweeter "mixed drink" character that's expected afterwards, the beer instead turns dry and warm for ulitmate drinkability. The yeast ferments very cleanly and supressing any fruity or spice character beneath those flavors of hops and alcohol for a neutral and clean taste- not to interfere with the hop/malt lopsided balance.

The early sips of the IPA reveal an abrupt carbonation that eventually subsides into a wonderfully creamy and cooling minty warmth that introduces the impact of 9% abv. The citrusy start develops into a bitter and resiny mid palate that further develops into a pleasant dryness and warmth that ushers in the next sip well before a 9% beer should. A linger of citrusy bitterness and alcohol dryness make this beer refreshing, satisfying, and drinkable- much moreso than it should.

Hop Rising is a spectacular Imperial IPA that allows for a timid balance of caramel malt sweetness but it is only intended to inform the hop flavor and bitterness; because this is first and foremost a display for hop- just the way a good little IPA shoud. Good IPA, good boy.

They make some pretty good stuff in Utah,I hate to say it but I am a little surprised by that,no disrespect at all meant to Utah folks.Poured into a tulip glass a deep burnt orange with a large fluffy,sticky white crown that held for a real longtime leaving globs of lace behind.Citrus fruit and caramel malt battle it out in the nose department,light sweet alcohol comes in to play as well.Hefty sweetness on the palate,a tone of caramel going on here,more sugary sweetness until a burst of citric hop comes in the finish.Like way to many American DIPA's this is to sweet but the hops hit pretty good in the finish.The alcohol makes it more sweeter as it warms,its a sipper but not bad at all.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle, from the co-op in lovely Boise, ID. Now why do I get such a Mormon vibe from the label?...

This beer pours a frosted light copper hue, with one obese finger of foamy, creamy ecru head, which leaves some encompassing coral reef lace around the glass in its wake. It smells of bready caramel malt, and strong citrus and tropical fruit, and herbal pine hops. The taste is caramel/toffee malt, a bit of metallic spice, and decently in your face citrus hops, with more understated pine hops in the background. The big 9 points of State-scaring booze are pretty hard to detect, which I would imagine strengthens their misguided case. The carbonation is fairly restrained, the body medium weight, a tad sticky, and pretty smooth in that particular vein. It finishes hardcore zen on both axes - persistent malt and hops as previously established.

A decent, drinkable DIPA, the malt nowhere near overbearing in the sugar headache sense - a somewhat 'mild' version, in everything but what, in the end, counts - the al-key-hall...

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Cast in a clear, amber/bronze hue, lush, large creamy white head. Looking great.

Aroma: Bitter-sweetness. A whole lot of everything in here. Plenty of fruit, some heat, some spice, pine and grass in places. Big time resiny hop presence. Nice.

Taste: Big bitterness greets us first, blazing the palate, leaving sweet remnants all over the mouth. Malt more than adequately keeps up with the beefed up hop quantity here. Nine percent alcohol in this one, and it starts to show. Sticky malt floor holds it's own, while hops bounce everywhere. Any dyed-in-the-wool hop freak should like this one.

Here's what the brewery tell us about it: "Big hop, big malt, big beer. One of the most aggressive beers ever released in Utah, Hop Rising a double India Pale Ale, clocks in at 75 IBU's and 9% alcohol. We use three different malts to create enough flavor to perfectly balance three varieties of hops, then we dry-hop it; resulting in an amazing two pounds of hops per barrel! Hop lover's dream."

I wouldn't put this up in the far echelons of double IPAs, but it certainly is one of the good ones. Enjoy without reservation.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Acquired via trade from Wasatch so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, fruity citrus and some floral hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel followed by a hearty malt character. The hops presence seems a bit subdued but it comes through enough to create a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, well-disguised kick, good representation of style, this is a solid 2IPA worth drinking for a long time.

Born: 6/2/11

Into a tulip glass it pours a glowing, saturated sunset orange. Bright clarity and a generous layer of white foam that creates eddies of swirling patterns on the surface. Delicate, spindly lacing forms in thin concentric rings inside the glass.

Soft dried citrus peel aroma at first, which fades halfway through.

Clean and very drinkable, thankfully not too sweet and syrupy. Moderately bitter, balanced with an undercurrent of bready caramel malt. Firm citrus peel bitterness and earthy piney hops. Nothing mindblowing, but well put together and enjoyable. Would drink a couple easily, as the abv is completely hidden.

Review No. 2,300.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of hop notes to it as expected. I get a lot of papaya and pineapple, but there are also some bitter oranges and a little bit of resiny pine. The flavor is similar. In addition to the pineapple and papaya notes, I get some caramel malt. However, the malt is fairly subtle and the bitterness is pretty high but not overwhelming. The flavor is very juicy and the tropical fruit really stands out. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very easy to drink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Sampled at 1702, Tucson, July 2011
Arrives from the tap with a one-finger thick, lightly tan colored head; as the head subsides it leaves some nice lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer is an amber / copper color that shows a clear, deep gold / copper color when held up to the light. My first inspection of the nose has me noticing soft citrus notes backed by more noticeable notes of sweet pale malt, cracker like grain and perhaps a touch of biscuit like maltiness. Other notes of grapefruit zest, some sort of musty citrus character, soft pine like notes and even a touch of menthol like hoppiness is noticeable after the first take.

The beer is sweet up front which accentuates fruity hop notes of tangelo, lychee and ruby red grapefruit zest. The finish sees some warming alcohol lingering on the palate along with a firm, but not aggressive bitterness. The body of this beer has some definite heft to it; it viscously clings to the palate and really tempers the hop bitterness that is found here. The citrus hop character can have an essential oil / slight herbal edge to it at times, but this is a beer whose hop flavors are dominated by the fruit side of things. At times this reminds me of Meyer lemon zest flavors (rounder, and not quite as dry as regular lemon zest). Somehow the hop fruitiness can seem a bit over-ripe, or maybe even fermented (not really quite rotten though) towards the finish; though this is not always apparent and is quite subtle when it is.

Not a bad example of a Double IPA; it is certainly tasty and has been executed pretty darn well.

This poured out as a yellowish gold color with some hues of orange in there. There was a foamy white head on top that settled into a thin film over top of the beer. There is a bit of scattered lacing on the glass as well. The smell of the beer is fairly hoppy, it could be much stronger, the malt kind of shows up a little too much for an IIPA. The taste of the beer has a pretty good balance of the sweet malt with the hoppy bitterness. Still it could use just a bit more of a punch. The mouthfeel of the beer is nicely carbonated, medium bodied and smooth. Overall it's a decent beer, definitely not one of the best IIPA's out there but it was still nice to try.

Thanks to Wasatch!

Pours hazed copper amber with a nice creamy off-white head that slowly settles to half the original size and stays throughout, leaving lacing.

The smell is hoppy - citric/tropical fruits - apricot, orange, grapefruit and peppery spicing.

The taste is of peppery spicing with citrus/pine and tropical fruits. Pale malt sweetness, with a touch of honey and caramel, is in the back, allowing for hop bitterness to stay ahead. It has a minty/menthol finish.

With mild-to-medium carbonation, it has a smooth medium body.

Drinks well for abv - a hoppy, but with a malt backbone, DIPA! Very nice!

Beer #3 in the great Utah Brew Hunt.

This was a decent dipa. I felt like it was much more malt forward than I'd like for the style. It's a nice drinker, and the abv definitely doesn't show at all, but with so many others of the style showing strong and distinct hop tones, I feel like this one should be too.

Lovely golden brew well equipped with foam and lacing in the wine glass. Really nice aroma of fresh hop cones with resins. Big, hot mouthfeel with spritzy carbonation. Somewhat sweet and winey. Light bodied and refreshing on the tongue, with a long burn of hops and alcohol. Grows on you after a few sips. Kind of a hot rod fuel beer but fine aromatics.

Decent strong beer for this part of the country. I have had a couple of Colorado DIPAs this week that are more robust (Myrcenary and Mountain Standard), but this one certainly wins for drinkability.

underwhelming ipa here, but for a 9% double ipa with beautiful graphics in a 6 pack under 10 bucks, it rules the roll. the beer itself is a little sweet for me, not super hoppy, overly alcoholic, and a little rich in corn sugar, it may be a bit too much. mostly clear golden color under a patchy but lasting white airy head. the nose is sweet with all the hops, but it doesn't seem like its from grain. i get a whole lot more dextrose or something similar than i do malt. the hops in smell and taste are not forward enough for the style, and there is very little bitterness. the price is alluring for what it is, but the flavor makes me not a repeat buyer. the feel is fine, save the residual sugar. enough bubbles and body, but the hops just aren't there all the way through. decent, but i know squatters can do better.

12oz brown with a freshness date.

LOOK: Massive sticky head takes a long time to subside, orange amber color shows some haze

SMELL: Grassy, oily resin, slightly catty, orange pith, evergreen, exotic fruit, biscuity, hint of yeast

TASTE: Hop resin, leafy, dried grass, orange rind, piney, faint tobacco, bitter middle, caramel, toasted grain, yeast, Asian pears, mango, warming alcoholic esters, bitter drying finish

Hard to pick out the 9%abv at first, well round with an assertive bitterness but not to the point of being a palate killer. Hopheads should check this one out at least once. Good drinking.

The the Double IPA version of the Hop Rising Pale Ale. Seems to be bottle only. Sampled at the SLC Airport.

Clear red colored beer with a good tan colored head.

Smell is strong citrus hops and quite fresh too, no aged Barley Wine variation on the big Hop Hammer. Only minor possible defect is that this is lacking on those subtle scents you sometimes get like Pineapples.

Starts out strong orange wood and dry. Grapefruit and pine flavors come out after a while. One of the drier DIPAs Citrus and woody flavors dominate and malt is essentially lost from the sensation.

Mouthfeel is lightish, dryly fermented beer.


Not going to displace Pliny The Younger any time soon but easily the best DIPA made in Utah. Tasty beer from the land of big trouble for Demon Coffee.

Review from notes taken on 1/13/11. Thanks to JohnGalt1 for the chance to try this one.

Poured into a snifter, this brew appears a clear color of orange with a finger of white head. The cap recedes slowly leaving a wall of lacing on the glass and quickly dissipates to a thin film across the top of the brew.

The aroma of this brew has toasty malt sweetness with a citrus component reminescent of orange rind. The hops impart an overall fruity and rindy smell. As it warms, it becomes increasingly candy-like with a caramelized sugary scent with a touch of grassy hop character.

The taste is oily with orange rind flavors, citrus and fruits that initially seem sweet but turn bitter and somewhat herbal. Quite sweet yet balanced with a toasty malt inclusion. The alcohol becomes apparent once the brew warms.

This is a medium bodied offering with a light level of carbonation. A little sweeter than expected but overall not bad and quite drinkable for 9%.

At 9% ABV, this must be a beer that makes most in Utah freak out. 12 ounce bottle taken to go by the recommendation of the bartender at Freakin Frog, on to the beer:

My Falke chalice will take the honor of holding this beer tonight. Clean bodied, pale orange color with a tight creamy head on top. Leaves some thin, but creamy lookin' lacing. The aroma is quite muted for the style. A touch clean, malt sugars, cheesy, only a little hoppiness.

Its taste isn't bad, but it sure seems like it's missing a few things. There are subtle notes of pineeapple, but it's missing even moderate flavors of hops. There's some resin, which marks the spot of previous hops' lives. I'm getting bored here. At least the alcohol is masked well.

Well, Hop Rising DIPA gets a moral victory just for being over that dreaded 4.0% ABV line. It's possible that the hops melted as this beer sat in the cooler of Freakin Frog, but how long would I know if there's no "bottled on" date?

Got a bottle of this at the airport squatters pub at the SLC airport.

The beer pours an orange amber color with very good head retention and pretty decent lacing. The nose is about what you'd expect from the description in the menu; the malt bill is obviously huge in this one. I pick up an aroma of tropical fruit, dominated by maraschino cherry and mandarin orange. There's also some graham cracker, sort of a bandaide smell, some pepper and a hint of underlying citrus asw well. On the palate, it's probably something of a misnomer to even call this a DIPA. The beer is so sweet and malty, with the tropicl fruit flavor domimating everything else. Yes, there's some noticeable, underlying hoppy bitterness, but the beer is so sweet and hot from the alcohol, it's really tough going getting this one down. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a sweet, hot, somewhat bitter finish.

While this is a decent beer, I'm having a hard time thinking of it as a DIPA. Seems more like some sort of strong ale, or even an imperial red would be more like it. Regardless, it's completely unimagineable having more than one of these at a sitting. Mehhhh...

Pours out a darker golden color, some orange, not much head or lace to speak of, but retention of what was there was spot on. Typical high bitter, hop aroma out of a dipa. Seemed like standard cascade,centennial hops in this one.

Taste, good, ample bitterness, hop mouthfeel was a plenty, especially given that this beer was already a few months old, sturdy, important. Alcohol not all that noticeable. Caramel, grapefruit, really quite standard for a dipa, extra points for hiding the alcohol, keeping its hop mouthfeel a few months down the road, and not just amping up the ibus for the sake of enamel destructing bitterness.

Would recommend again.

12oz incredible extra received from Wasatch in our most recent trade... Huge Thanks John!! These Utah brewers are doing good work, it's just the state's reputation is dogging them.

Poured into my small La Trappe glass... 1" foamy lite tan/yellow tinged head sticks around for ever... great lace and the brew is a polished sunset orange... very pretty...

Nose is seriously good DIPA.... pungent citrus hops... some resiny pine... yet very balanced by bushels of malt.

Flavor is very nice... it says 85 IBU's and I believe it... the bitterness melts seamlessly into very balanced maltiness... the hop flavors are very fresh.. oily citrus reminds me of grapefruit without the pithy bitterness.. great body and a lighter than expected carbonation leads to a nice creamy mouthfeel....

This is a very very good DIPA... loving it... wow! I just wanna say thanks again.... Wasatch hooked it up.... a very recommended trader.... you should hit him up for this badboy.

Got in a trade with swingracex. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/12/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, light honey, and light bread. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of hop and malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, bread, and light honey. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, light pine, caramel, and bread on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance of hops and malt sweetness; with good complexity and zero cloying flavor after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good double IPA. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
