4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at O.H.S.O., 3/8/14
Aroma: It has a nice resiny/pine aroma, with some nice citrus, and some spice notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear golden color with a nice white head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, with a big hoppy bitterness, and a clean hop finish
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a clean feel, and a nice, dry finish
This was another really tasty beer from Dragoon. It wasn’t quite as good as their Red IPA, but it was a heck of a beer. Excluding the much ballyhooed Wilderness (which totally lived up to the hype), I think Dragoon may have been the Arizona brewery that impressed me to the most on my trip.

Tap at OHSO. Pours Amber with puffy head. Nose is big citrus. Tastes of juicy grapefruit, very resinous, caramel,and some spruce. Quite bitter but very tasty and drinkable. Well carbonated and nice lingering palate. I was beat from hiking in heat but this brought me back to life

Draft sample at OHSO. Clear gold color with bubbly carbonation and a thin white head. Wow big orange, hoppy aroma. Great flavor that balances sweet mandarin oranges with piney bitterness. Great IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought big pungent hoppy tones with juicy orange, grapefruit, lots of pine, nice mango in there as well, nice zesty hops balance it into some caramel, slight biscuit but it’s all about the hops. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, mango and pineapple, into some grass, herbal and spicy hops, slight caramel, toffee notes, finishing with more sweet orange, grapefruit, and a slight piney note as well. Very well done.

Draft. Aroma is very citrus hopped. Appearance is a clear bronze with a lasting white head. Taste starts and stays hoppy. Reminds me if a very fresh grapefruit. Palate is bitter. Overall a good ipa.
