3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the airport location, 11/2/15.
Glassy, chill-hazed, deep golden with light amber tints. White head atop is large and well-retained.
Nose actually seemed a bit ominous for me. I mostly got a lot of orange rind, grapefruit and light pine with some caramel and biscuit character. It all seemed to suggest I was in for an East Coast style IPA from the early 2000s. Not to mention, even trying to vigorously warm the beer up, and swirl it to concentrate the aroma, I didn’t get a ton. Clean, though and with no alcohol noted.
The flavor, then, is quite confounding. Almost none of the heavy citrus or caramel promised from the nose. Rather, a dextrinous body that mostly allows for just light honey and at most some dry toffee character from the malt. The hops give off a very slow building dankness, with earthy notes, juicy, light tropical fruits and little to no pine whatsoever. The malt stays out of the way and the leafy, fresh, dank hops provide a very easygoing yet flavorful beer that belies both the aroma and the abv. Continued to evolve and build complexity/flavor as it warmed and breathed. Will certainly revisit this one, but was very impressed based on this pint.

Can. Didn’t seem overly fresh. Much more subdued than the obviously fresher impy. Just an average brew as drank.

Pours an orange-yellow for with a light floral aroma. Taste is simply, clean, easy drinking. Taste of sight citrus with a decent hop aftertaste. An not so complex beer that was good on a hot Arizona day

cloudy orange-yellow, smooth offwhite head.
malty and hoppy aroma, quite bitter. seems fuller than what the abv might indicate. slighlty flowery but mainly bitter hoppy flavor, with a good dry malty balance. the hops have this subtle flowery note that is quite nice.
