3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate resin hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. This beer also met my expectations.

Medium yellow with lots of lace. Some hop aroma. Enjoyed at Scottsdale location, brewed of course at Tempe. The bitterness did not work for me, it was not too drinkable.

In tap at 4 peaks Scottsdale(cask version). Pours an orangish color with a small, creamy white head. Floral hops, mango and some caramel in the nose. Flavor has tropical fruit, bitterness from what taste like floral hops and light caramel. Ok brew.

Draught at the brewpub
Light amber color; creamy head. Simple aroma, light but nice hops. Creamy and smooth body, some malt and toffee flavor, but quite buttery, diacetyl. Correct bitterness, lightly citrusy. Not bad, but I prefer the American IPA to this English IPA

Tap at Tempe. Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is dominated by citrusy hops. Flavor is overwhelming in your face hops and some light malt. No balance here what so ever.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft w/ bockyhorsey and wife in Tempe at 4P. The pour was orange, ok head, but nothing great for an IPA. The aroma was strong floral aromatic hops, almost perfume-liike, some light caramel under it all, perhaps. The flavor was strong overwhelming floral hops, firm bitter backbone, again lots of floral hopping. Flavor also featured some fruits, perhaps tropical in nature. Not at all my kind of IPA, a poor brew.

My Four Peaks Favorite. For the true hops fan. Complex and bitter, not suited for a beginner.

Growler from Sparky27, thank you Eric. Clear orange amber with a ring of beige head--though I figure it’s because the growler had leaked during its travels. I won’t take off points for appearance of palate for this reason. Aroma has lots of caramel and some mango hops. Flavor is much the same with a caramel finishing a little biscuity. Semi-dry finish with bitterness at a 4. Scant carbonation with a medium body. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another pint on tap at the Scottsdale Grill & Tap. Initially hazy pour that settles out to a clear orange, cherry wood under a medium tall and rocky dirty white head. Aroma of pine resin and grapefruit. No surprises in the flavor with plenty of citrusy grapefruit and hop bitterness. Texture a bit inconsistent and tips to watery. Big dry bitter finish. A pretty good big IPA but not as well balanced as their Hop Knot.
