3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from trade with a buddy in Arizona. Pours a clear golden orange color with a perfect head and lacing. Aroma is super musty and perfumy. Smells like wet grass, oil, and light citrus. Taste is just as intense as the aroma. Lots of musty wet grass, fresh hops, and oil. Light citrus in the finish. Fairly thick mouthfeel for an IPA. Seems like a really well made IPA but not my favorite version of the style. Reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Hoptimum but a little better.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is light golden hued and and parent with a thick, foamy white head. Ample sticky lacing plastered onto the pint glass. The aroma offers pine sap, resin, dank hops. Hop forward with a sturdy malt backbone. Bread / biscuit character supports the pine hop aspect nicely. Well balanced. Sweetness seems to escalate. Lingering hop bitterness and pine. Medium bodied with ample carbonation. A solid beer.

Draft @ Four Peaks. Clear amber with a spotty white head and lacing. Hoppy aroma of citrus, pine, light fruit and floral, some light caramel malt as well. Flavor is well balanced, firm hop bitterness and clean malt, no real alcohol taste. Medium body with active carbonation. Really solid IPA, nice fresh hop character with a clean fermentation.

Good IPA. Balanced and hoppy but not overly so. There's an interesting note on the flavor that I can't pinpoint but which makes the beer intriguing. As far as Phoenix IPAs go, though, I'd rate this a tick behind SanTan's HopShock.

Golden color out of the can with a frothy white head. Big clean hop flavors with tons of pine and juniper and a long red grapefruit rind finish. Well balanced and very flavorful IPA.

Came from out of state to see my brother and stopped their before going to his house. Got the sampler platter at Four Peaks Brewery. By far the best one of the beer selection. Kilt Lifter also worth trying. Liked it so much I went to the grocery store and got some in the cans. Took it to my brothers he saw I purchased it and said "I love this beer" when I took it out of the bag. Bought annother sixer before the wedding. I wish the could send it up to MN. Since the owners are from MN maybe it could happen.
