3.71/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours mostly clear with a deep golden color with a good 2 finger head and decent lacing.

Smells of a good amount of malt present with an earthy note behind the piney hops.

Initially it actually tastes a bit dirty, but then comes around to the malt that matches the nose. Hops seem fairly grassy with a kick of citrus. The booze his hidden fairly well but in the end leaves a lasting metallic taste.

A good crisp bite with a dry finish on the tongue.

Overall a good DIPA that is very drinkable.

Pours a bright apricot, big head, lovely lacing. Hop-citrus smell. Taste follows with a metallic zing. The feel lacks an oiliness that I expect in DIPAs. For me that's a good thing. Overall good.

Another local I tried on my Colorado vacation. Has a big citrus hop influence in the nose.

A little disjointed in the flavor, with hop dominated finish kind of overcoming a mediocre mouthfeel, creating a bit of a metallic note. You don't notice the abv but the mouthfeel could definitely use some stiffening. Watery texture keeps this one an awkward mess.

Can thanks to Wasatch. Cheers John!

Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with over a finger of foam, sticky lacing.

Smells of grapefruit citrus, caramel malt, has a tropical fruit nose to it.

Fruity bitterness up front, grapefruit, light grass, a bit subdued flavour wise for a double IPA.

Has somewhat of a scratchy mouthfeel to it. Pretty average.

Pours a deep golden/orange color, strong head with sturdy lacing. Nose is strong with hops and, honestly, not much else. The floral or citrus bouquet you typically get with IPAs is missing. Same with the taste. There's a hint of something flowery there, but it's more like marigold than something yummy. Mostly it tastes like a lot of hops without much foreplay. And heavens, does it linger. I'll be smelling hops in my sleep. "Cloying" is an unfortunate yet appropriate word to use here. Maybe I should just avoid beers rated at > 60 IBU. They seem to make me grumpy.

2.98/5  rDev -15.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a cervoise glass.

Looks light caramel gold with a white head, film of retention and amusing lacing in the shapes of animals.

Smells earthy, dank, weedy, and not unlike rotting cardboard.

Tastes bitter immediately and never recovers. Steely, like drinking liquid metal.

Mouthfeel is medium to heavy.

Overall, not my think. Horrible metallic bitter aftertaste.

12 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear yellowish/orange color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy two-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), nice little pineyness. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), nice pine note. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

2.02/5  rDev -42.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 1.5

12 oz can. Pours hazy yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is subdued - some sweet cracker malt with with a little piney hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with a sharp acidic bitter alcohol finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, I don't care for it.
