Can at cgarvieuk’s tasting. Orange amber pour, bubbly white head. Big fruit nose, mango, pineapple maybe. Tinned fruits? Very "green" hop character. Slight bready sweetness on the tongue with lots of citrus and some hints at butterscotch perhaps. Surprisingly soft hop finish. Really nice.

In can, thanks Franz. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Lovely resinous hop aroma of passion fruit, pineapple and peach. Flavours similar with a nice barley backbone. Chewy mouth-feel, mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Very nice hop and malt balance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to fata2683 for this one in trade. Cheers, Keith! It looks like most of this page’s ratings were from Keith sending this one around. Pours a nice mostly clear orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is citrus pith, tangerine, lemons and lemon rind, and a bit of pine with mild caramel. Flavor is a nice West Coast-esque hop punch. Grapefruit, lemon, and pine hit immediately followed by pine and citrus pith. Light malts all around and a nice bitter finish. A nice, light to medium body IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a slightly hazed orange color with a finger of white head.
S: A decent bit of citrus to the aroma. Lots of grapefruit, which is nice, and a bit of tangerine. Fairly heavy on the pine and an almost perfumey floral note. Light malt aroma of bread.
T: Somewhat sweet bready malt with a touch of toast and toffee. Grapefruit and orange peel with a moderate bitterness. Not a very intense hoppiness, but the flavors are good enough.
M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: A decent IPA, but it didn’t really blow me away.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
First off, I am completely biased on this rating since I live less than a mile away from Four Peaks Tempe. On tap and from a growler, pours a copper color with a tiny white head. Smell is incredible citrus. Taste is citrus and pine which = deliscious! Along with Stone IPA and Dogfish Head 60 & 90 minute IPA’s, this is one of my favorites, but again, i’m biased.

Can from fata2683. Great extra. Clear light golden pour with a somewhat tight white head. The aroma packed a nice punch of fresh fruity citrus. Somewhat sweet smelling, nicely done. Flavors were equally fruity, nice citrus, lemon and light orange. Bitterness was rather light making this drinkable, even sessionable. Smooth light bitter finish, great stuff.
