3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft @ Whole Foods Mayo. Not much in the nose- some faint hops. Thin mouthfeel. Not too hoppy in the flavor, either. Was expecting alot more from Four Peaks. More like a very pale ale.

Golden orange Pour, white head. Floral and citrusy on the nose. Malt on the front of the taste with some nice hop character and some bitterness. Wonderful IPA and very tasty.

On-tap at Four Peaks, Saturday, July 28th, 10:02 AM. Pours russet-amber with a quickly-dispensable off-white head. Smells of...gee wiz: hops, pine cones and lactic acid. Tastes of crisp hops, pines, white wheat and Caramalt. I had a dandy of a time sipping this; you should too.

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.

Pours clear and rich copper flavor with medium head with medium lacing. Modeeatley bitter taste with resin and pine hops and caramel malt. Hint of sweet with the malt. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Medium finish. Good beer. I prefer the hop knot a little more..

On tap at the brewpub. Weaker of the two India Pale Ales offered. Malt and hop flavors present but a bit out of balance. Flat finish.
