Pours a hazy golden color with minimal head. Aroma of tropical fruit, mango, citrus. Solid flavor, I like the big malt backbone that balanced out the modest hop profile. Very good carbonation. This fits in with so many other DIPA's on the shelf, a good go-to but I wouldn't go searching for it.

Had on tap at the brewery - just a taste however, since I can never tolerate this much ABV, unf. Excellent. Impressive place with a great history since 1989.

Very nice bouquet on the nose of citrus and herbs. look and taste are of your standard DIPA's on the market. The feel is was smooth and carbonated. overall nothing crazy but a good beer to grab over many others.

Poured into a snifter. Looks like a classic American IPA: hazy but not turbid, golden-amber color, frothy white head with nice splotchy lacing. Moderate-intensity tropical aroma with floral notes and some bready malt. Huge flavor as expected: tropical fruit, berries, pineapple, some resin, and a nice restrained but balanced malt presence. Easy drinking for its ABV and not too hot on the finish. Outstanding all the way around. Thanks to Wasatch for this one!

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden orange amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and laces beautifully.

S: Citrus blossom honey, candied orange, floral, light tropical notes, and biscuity malt.

T: Citrus, candied orange, tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit, a hint of melon, floral, biscuity malt, and caramel honey sweetness.

M: A bit on the fuller side of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Big DIPA, could be a little bolder with the hops, but still darn tasty.
Had this twice while in Colorado, still feel like I'm getting to it at the end of its run. Definitely going to try to get my hands on some a little sooner next time around.

Tasted from a 12 oz can into a goblet.

L - Light golden color; hazy but not murky. Pure white head is thick and creamy, then fades to a thick ring around the glass and a thin sheet of bubbles. Solid lacing.

S - Aromas dominated by hops featuring fresh floral character and tropical fruit. There are some low bread and grain notes from malt, then a light, final hops finish like lemony citrus. Fresh and bright.

T - Initial flavors of hops--citrus (again, light lemon) and tropical fruits. Midpalate is sweet, bready malt, then the hops come back in for a semi-dry finish. Tropical/citrus hops and sweet malt linger in the aftertaste.

F - Medium body. Moderate level of hops bitterness. Velvety, low to medium carbonation. Some alcohol presence, but not as much as the ABV would suggest.

O - A delicious DIPA. Balanced, fresh and sumptuous.
