3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a somewhat hazy but clear golden yellow almost orange colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within a minute, adequate foamy lacing clings to the sides of the glass.
The smell was very piney and somewhat resinous aroma powers forward, yet once as it warms, a decent amount of malts make their presence.
The taste was mainly bitter, but the malts that come through help to balance for the most part, no aftertaste, dry bitter finish.
On the palate, she sat about a light to medium and was fairly sessionable. Carbonation was good for the style and for me as there is a good bitter harshness invading my tongue and mouth just like an AIPA should be.
Overall, good job Four Peaks, as I would have this again.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 12 oz. can supplied by agentzigzag. Many thanks! To oversized snifter, it pours a maroon carrot orange with which a sudsy whitish head 1 finger in length stood. Tastes and smells of hand sanitizer, Dove soap bars, cilantro, wheat grain, and soil. Tastes of everything described above with the addition of limeade, pork salt, duct tape, and vanillin. What is this? Drinkable, but overly weird.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Che-Ah-Chi, 3/2/14
Aroma: The nose is citrus hops (grapefruit, peach), some pine, and some pale malts
Appearance: It pours a golden color with a decent sized white head and average lace
Flavor: The taste is on-style, with a light sweetness and a medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has an average carbonation, and a smooth, dry finish
This is a very solid IPA. Since Four Peeks is the biggest brewery in the area, it seems like this is the local, easy to find, craft IPA, and in that category you could do a heck of a lot worse.

Can to shaker - pours cloudy heavy yellow with a nice head and lacing. Has a nice grapefruit hop nose and taste, a medium body and dry finish. Good IPA and one that is local but could complete nationally.

Draft- Phoenix Arizona. This beer gets me where I need to be. Nice pomelo on the nose, flavor is crisp citrus and lingering pine. It's great. Recommend!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with a huge, frothy, white head. Nose is a bouquet of flowers; hop heaven. Taste is very well-balanced undercurrent of malt with robust hop bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Quite good IPA.

Very unusual beer. Nice golden hue, great long-lasting head. The aroma is very tangerine citrus, but the taste is almost more like a carbonated juice! Very surprising.
