3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Tempe brewery. Deep copper color with sweet, roasted aroma. Well balanced IPA with a sweet caramel and vanilla flavor balanced by an earthy, citrusy hop bitterness. This seems like an English IPA but everything’s amped up a bit. Finishes sweet with a lasting sugary caramel flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pours copper with a nice lasting white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is big caramel and breaded malts, thin citrus hop notes. Flavor is more malt forward, but the hops add a nice dry finish of pine and grapefruit.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Four Peaks. Poured a clear pale orange with a thin white head. Light floral hop nose. Bitter, piny hop flavor. Fairly thin body with a bitter aftertaste, and quite one-dimensional with the floral hop aroma and taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on cask today at 4 peaks in Scottsdale. Its a light colored Ipa, golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is floral hops. The taste is light bitterness, some floral hops, and light Malts. A little boring to be honest. This is an English style pale ale that doesn’t really appeal to me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at brewpub. Easily the least impressive beer of the night. Not much on the tongue or the nose. Clean finisher. Not bad just boring.
