UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 4oz draft 9/1/13 (Copper Blues-PHX) pours a medium amberish orange with a small off white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of citrus, pine, and malt. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

Dangerous to the parched lip.
Arizona day drinking may produce a hazy outcome. Cheers!

Medium, clear gold, filmy white head. Very nice candied gel aroma - sweet. Very smooth, decent hops, but not agressive. Some seedy/cereal tones. Sessionable. On tap, brewpub.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very average IPA in terms of aroma, bitterness and flavor. However, sometimes you just want an IPA, that isn’t anything else and this would do it. Overall, I liked it.

Four Peaks Raj IPA is sparkling clear amber in color, with a moderate white head and lacing.
Mildly hoppy Citrus nose with bready malt.more like a pale ale.
Barely Pale Ale bitterness.
Medium body with medium+ carbonation. Rather crisp and lively, every for an ipa.
O: Very drinkable, lightly hopped English/American IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glass: Pint glass
From: Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: $5.00 (guessing)
Purchased: May 16, 2013
Consumed: May 16, 2013
Poured a reddish, honey amber color with 1-2 fingers of white head when I got it. Good lacing on the sides and good retention all the way down.
Smelled a weird mix of hops and malts. Resin, grass and herb hops, honey, caramel and roasty malts.
Taste wasn’t anything to be desired. Roasty caramel malts, grass and resin hops and maybe even a bit of rye. Long lasting bitterness on the tongue after.
Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
I wasn’t too much of a fan of this one. The hop/malt balance didn’t quite work.

Tap @ Four Peaks Tempe. Pours a copper orange appearance with an off white head. Spicy, sweet grapefruity hoppy, light caramel aroma. Fairly citrusy, well balanced, moderately sweet flavor. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Four Peaks. Clear deep amber with a very dense off white head. Mild aroma of flowers, spicy herbs, caramel, dough and citrus. Flavor of doughy malt with a fairly strong hop bitterness, light alcohol warming. Medium body with average carbonation. Not bad but prefer the Hop Knot over this one.

On tap at the Scottsdale brew pub. Comes a golden orange with an average white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and florals. Taste is citrus, caramel malt, florals, and pine. Not too well balanced. OK.
