Sampled at the Tucson fest. This is almost clear golden. So soft hops with more malts. Way too light. Maybe ok for a gateway beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at Daveís Electric brewpub with clear copper body with gold edges and light tan colored head. The aroma has mild levels of malts and roasted malts followed by a moderate spicy to earthy hoppiness and maybe a sliver of citrus that might just be a faint estery note. The taste is smooth with malts, some malt roastiness and a nice level of pine hops. Below those notes I get some earthy hops. It ends on the dry side with the help of roasted malts. Not a hop forward brew.

Draft pour. Clear amber color/ fleeting head. Mild, but fresh, floral, ganja aromas. medium bodied with average co2. Mild, bland grainy caramel malty flavors are lightly sweet; barely a bitter finish

Tap at AZSBF.Pour is orange-gold with a white head. Aroma shows notes of stale malt and faded hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same. No thanks.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours cloudy burnt orange color with off white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel and iced tea. Caramel an toasted malt flavors with some mild hop bitterness. Not sure how fresh this bottle is. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Craig.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Enjoyed on tap at new Tempe brewpub location. Poured a hazy golden color, perhaps very light amber. Thin white head on top. Tea aromas with light citrus were present on the nose. Palate offered a pleasant candied malt like component with modest amount of hops in for balance. Brewpub literature indicates this "IPA" has the lowest IBUís of any beer on tap.

Not interesting in any way. Not much hoppy aroma, not much flavoring hops either. When I order an IPA itís because I want to smell and taste the hops, not get left drinking a rather undistinguished ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a caramel color with a small bubbly ring for a head. Aroma is malt, caramel, faded hops, almost barley wine like. Flavor is caramel, faded hops, sugars, lack of carbonation makes this even more one dimensional. Biscuit bready notes in the finish along with caramel and faded bitter hops. Odd brew, more carbonation would have helped this immensely but itís still pretty interesting.
