This beer has an excellent aroma profile. A sweet hoppy nose complemented nicely by just enough malt. Beer is light and easy to drink which makes it great for a hot day. Not much bitterness for an IPA though.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Pours a clear light copper color with a frothy, yet thin, pale tan colored head. The aroma has notes of bright citrus, a grassy herbal character, a bit of astringent grain husk, toasty malt notes and perhaps a hint of caramel. The taste has a nice sharp bitterness from beginning to end. This is definitely a hop focused beer; there is a nice citrus note here that reminds me of lemons & oranges. There is only a hint of malt character here; a bit of sweet grain character, and a hint of toasted malt in the finish. This is a pretty nice, easy drinking IPA; it has a solid hop bite and a bit of hop flavor to it, and it goes down quite easily. If the malt character were a bit more complex the hop flavor might shine through a bit more.

Pours a light orange/yellow color. Aroma is somewhat pinelike. Slightly bitter maltiness. Somewhat bitter malty flavor with a hint of graininess. Not a great IPA. My bottle was 6.0%.

12 oz bottle. Aromas were lacking as well as the flavor. Bitter flavor, but I donít think it was hoppy bitterness. Nice looking bottle though.

Bottle poured a nice gold amber with a smallish head. Light citrus, hops aroma . Flavor is a little bitter, citrus with a bland bitter finish. Not the best IPA Iíve ever had.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Very bland overall, almost no aroma to speak of with only a slight hop bitterness in the finish.

On draught at Falling Rock, 9/30/2005. Served in a shaker, it has a light peach-fuzz yellow color to it, with a smattering of white head atop, not very abundant and recedes to a ring fairly quickly. Beer is clear, with moderate sized bubbles rising. Aroma has a nice, soft yellow fruits and light pale malt sugariness. Light tangerines, nectarines, peaches and fresh apricot juice, with an aromatic floral nature. Overall, not a tremendously strong aroma. Flavor continues with the fruit, adding more tangerines and nectarines, with a medium to medium-light body, gentle and supportive of the moderate hops. A moderate carbonation, lively, touch watery texture confirm that this is indeed a simple, session ipa. Not too dry or too bland, however, the hops are refreshing and present enough to satisfy me.

bottle. rubber aroma. dark yellow see through pour with lively bubbles and a fluffy pillow of a white head. the aroma is not pleasant. kind of a tree bark rubber/ eraser smell to it. hot pepper taste that bites. citrus hop flavor comes through with a sweet lemon finish with caramel lingering long after the spice dies down. once i adjust to the spice this isnít bad, but it takes some getting used to.
