tap. A nice solid offering but doesn’t have anything that sets it apart from other ipa’s. Good enough that I would have again though.

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.

Can, thanks Josh! Pours a clean light hay color with nice foamy white head. Aroma of fresh citrus. Light mouthfeel, with a clean non-bitter finish. Really enjoyable and delicious.

Bright deep straw clear as a berk. Thick frothy white head. Huge lovely aroma of tropical fruit. Super aroma. Flavor doesn’t quite live up but lightly hoppy. A nice beer.

Clear golden pour with medium quickly disappearing off white head. Mild grapefruit nose. Light body smooth mouthfeel. Vague citrusy notes, grapefruit, pineapple. Mild resiny finish with a light malty aftertaste. Totally a session

On tap at brewpub. A smooth drinking India Pale Ale. Nice balance. Some citrus and pine flavors with malty caramel in the background. Sharp finish but lacking a bitter kick. Tasty but average.

On tap at Brick in Phoenix. Pours clear copper with small head that clings well. Nice pine nose with citrus undertones. Medium silky body and medium carbonation. Medium bitterness from start to finish. Decent IPA but nothing to make it stand out.

12 oz can into a tulip glass. No date indicated. Thanks to azdback for this!
Pours a nice clear dark amber body. Neat fluffy white foam simmers down to a thick edging and a thin cap. Super sticky lacing. Aroma is grapefruit heavy with a bit of pine and dank resin. Taste is similar with bitter grapefruit and pine. Finishes floral with some caramel malt. One of the driest finishes I’ve ever had in an IPA. So dry it chaps the lips. Mouth feel is a bit watery but the bitterness helps carry the favors through to the very end. Overall this is a really solid IPA that I would never kick out of the fridge. I really love that dry finish, pretty unique for the style.
