Can thanks to fata2683 drank on national IPA day: Poured a burnt orange with a huge frothy off white lacing head. Aroma is nice balance of hops and malt. Taste is a nice gritty full hops flavored front with a soothing malt and fruit finish.

One of my favorites. Lot of floral hop taste, lighter on the bitterness side for an ipa.

Can. Pours a light colored slightly cloudy golden color with a nice fluffy white head. Head pillows up nicely and slowly recedes. Has more of a fruity orange rind aroma than anything. Medium mouthfeel. Nice flavors, smooth and sweet upfront with orange and grapefruit. I’d say it has a medium level of bitterness that kicks in towards the end and lingers for a touch but otherwise ends pretty clean.

Great stuff, both on tap and in the can. Obviously the hops are prominent, but not overpowering; mouthfeel is very clean. If you like hops, chances are you’ll enjoy this!

Had this so many times, can’t believe it took this long to rate. Wonderfully citrus with a little bitterness and just a beautiful IPA. One of my favorites and probably near the top of local beers in AZ.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 Have had this on tap, this rate is from the can. Pale to look at. Big bold pine and grapefruit aromas. Fruity hop flavors are right up front, followed by bitterness mixed with a little semi sweet malt. Dry and mildy bitter finish. The beer leans more toward the hop. Slightly on the thin side.

Great nose of mostly pine, some malt as well. Huge flavors of piney, bitter hops. Like my friend said- it tastes like the forest. Good maltiness to balance the hops. One of the best beers from AZ, imo.
