Tap at some Mexican place in Tempe
Rather light-colored pour, hazy yellow-tan, nice head. Wow, this is a pleasant surprise for a beer I knew nothing about. Really enjoyable leafy hop aroma with tropical fruit and some citrus. Flavor is richly hopped but never bitter-oily. Really good stuff.

Perfect ipa. Everything a good ipa provides: cool refreshing taste, lightly bitter yet clean aftertaste, and plenty of alcohol.

Can in Sedona. Aroma of citrus and apricot. Fresh grapefruit hop flavor. Light and drinkable. Not as bad as some of the other Arizona IPAís sampled on this trip.

This is one of the better Arizona IPAs that I have had. It is a relatively clear orange color w/ a small and fine-bubbled head and little patches of lace. Itís nose is mostly lavender and a vague citrus smell that becomes more like mandarin orange once tasted due to a bit of sweetness. This is a juicy and full bodied brew that is almost too heavy but saved by firm carbonation. It finishes w/ a bit of citrus rind bitterness and a lingering floral note. This isnít quite vibrant enough to be world class but Iíd definitely but it from time to time if it was local to me.
