3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the brewery. Nice white head. Brilliant copper color. Nice hop nose with notes of grapefruit, lemon and strawberry. Bitterness up front and in the finish but some carmel sweetness in the end. I think it could be amped up a bit based upon what theyíre trying to sell it as....a hop bomb. Not quite there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Scottsdale location. The beer was 2 days old and cask-conditioned. Pours to a filtered bright amber body with a really dense, creamy white head. The aroma is grassy, weeds. The flavor is nicely malty with a bitter grassy hop. The palate is bitter, clean, and easy drinking. Medium bodied but goes down smooth. A spicy hop kick on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden yellow with a bit of haze. A lasting chalky froth sticks around the whole drink. Strong aromas of bright fresh citrus rind flowers. Medium nectar with good carbonation. This is a dry and very hoppy brew with a mild malt backbone for support. Thers not alot going on here. Itís just hops and a bit thin on the palate. No offensive nuances though. The finish is bittered extensively and strict with grapefruit and citrus rind. Overall: Itís a hop bomb for sure, just not balanced and it doesnít hit the required 7% abv. Hoppy yet weak.

Draft - clear golden body with a beige head. Big grass hop nose. A touch of pine hops as well. Big hop flavor! Could use a touch more malt to balance. Good!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. No notes, going from memory. Aroma is lightly floral, lightly pine, lightly citrus. Some spice to it with a good overall profile. Moderately bitter. Iíve had this one on a couple of occasions and I never seem to take notes. Great flavor, an easy IPA. Would like to take notes next time Iím there.

If you like hoppy beer, this is about as hoppy as I have had, great bitter taste! You donít expect it from the apperance in the glass, or the aroma, but the flavor punches you in the mouth! I love this beer! My favorite when i am at Four Peaks!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 tap at the brewery...no aroma due to the cavernous building and hundreds of fans...flavor is citrus, spice ( cinnamon maybe?) and floral hops. it has a nice malt backbone and the sweetness level is the perfect amount to balance the bitterness without being over the top and annoying. nice brew and great with spicy food...7/3/7/3/14/3.4
straight from the new bottles! i could drink this stuff all day! loads of grapefruit, non resinous pine, flowers and a solid malty backbone. it feels much richer and lux from the bottle than on tap.7/3/7/4/16/3.7

This was a solid brew consisting of some simple malts and a very decent amount of hops. Wasnt a southern cal ipa but wasnt an east coaster either, kinda a mix. Good session brew.
