3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Chandler AZ BJís (where the server claimed this was an IPA) pouring up clear copper with an off white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a mix of spicy hops, floral hops, a touch of lime like citrus and then malts to biscuit malts. The taste is pretty subtle per the style but the hops Iím getting are leaning firmly in the bitter hop direction. The hops are just like in the nose where Iím getting earthy spicy hops, some floral hops and a touch of citrus. Behind the hops are sweet malts and some biscuit malts. Decent subtle IPA, if youíre in the mood for subtle.

On draft at BJs Park West. Not much in the nose- kind of disappointing. Good flavors of fruity hops & some malt sweetness. Clean finish. Nice!

Dark copper pour. Good aroma with citrus hops and a little floral character. Wonderful citrus hops and a good taste overall. Better than the Hopstorm.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ BJís Desert Ridge. Dark copper/tangerine pour with a whispy white head that left only a spot or two inside the glass. Tropical aroma with papaya, orange peel, mango and guava all representing in the nose. Really bright. Same citrus and exotic flavors. Not a lot of bite...zero evergreen...all candied fruit. Kind of has a Del Monte fruit cocktail quality about it including the simple syrup itís bathed in. Medium mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium gold appearance with a rather clean, citrusy hoppy nose.
Palate offers a big ruby red grapefruit character with citrus sweetness and the grapefruit bitterness coming through. Malt profile has a nice candied quality, and thereís an herbal presence as well. Quite bitter on the finish.
