3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can with commonmac. Hazy orange with bubbly white head. Orange citrus and sweet alcohol nose. Pine and resin, alcohol there with hoppiness . Double ipa elements but not perfectly balanced and clean. Pretty good for my first Arizona beer, but nothing to get tied up in knots over.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap pour upon my arrival in PHX...medium clear amber pour with a thick slightly off-white head. Aroma is impressive...bold and clean with lots of fruity (grapefruit in particular) hops, resinous hops and a bit of malt in the background...again, color me impressed. Flavor is quite good as well - good forward hop presence without being overbearing for a ’single’ IPA...the citrus hops shine, but there some piney hop notes, and a decent malt sweetness around to balance things out. Palate is medium bodied and appropriate carbonation. Very good offering that I will probably seek out again!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma - nose eludes to an oily West Coast hop. There isn’t much in the way of citrus.
Appearance - body color is golden in color; the liquid is clear; the head sets up at about 2" and white, and slowly settles down; there is also some dappled lacing
Taste - very nice combination of West Coast hops and citrus (grapefruit and some subdued lemon)
Palate - body is medium; the texture is approaching oily; the carbonation is average; the finish moderate in length and a touch of bitter in the middle of the tongue. Pleasant finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Top Golf, Scottsdale, Az. Pours clear golden color with sizeable eggshell head and lacing. Aroma is orange, very hop forward and little bit of biscuit malt. Flavor is grapefruit, bit of lemon peel, distinct malt backbone. Very well balanced. Not a standout IPA but it is very well done. Not overly hoppy either.

Big hop character. Bitterness is balanced nicely. Fairly light in color, decent sized head. A nice cross between a IPA and a pale ale. Hope this becomes a regular beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub, pours a rather clear golden color, decent head, faint aroma of grassy hops, though there were many other aromas in the air that may have prevented the beer from standing out. Taste is what you’d expect from an IPA, nothing too special. Not too bitter and relatively smooth to drink, went very well with the nachos. I’d call it a good one.
