This is our tribute to the black iron that paved the way to get to the Grand Canyon. Black Iron is a high hopped, fragrant ale that is as deep and as wide as the Grand Canyon itself!

Twelve ounce can. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized head. Loose, sudsy lacing along the glass. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Reminds me a bit of an English IPA in the nose. Flavor is nicely bitter with a good amount of maltiness.

another too malty and thickish IPA - not what I’m looking for. I’ll get an english pale ale for that. Not BAD, just not good.

Where and how: can
Aroma bold yet refined with nicely rounded approach. Some late alcohol hints with balancing dryness.
Appearance :
Top: gushing white foam, rocky. Leaving lace on glass.
Base: hazy amber gold.
Palate : delicate body with longer finish.
Taste: similar to aroma. Soft refined feel with infused dose of hops. Perhaps tad too sweet to be very good.

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is cracker malt, citrus and pine hops. Flavor is heavy citrus and pine hops and bitterness, lightly sweet cracker malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Redelijk donkere IPA, vrij dik schuim. Ruikt hoppig bitter. Smaakt prima, goede IPA.

ElGaucho (2319) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2015
Can. Plums and molasses in the nose. Tastes better than it smells. Had it on tap earlier this evening at the Maswik lodge athe the Grand Canyon south rim and it was better on tap, although it was also served colder. Still this canned version is solid. Moderate hop finish. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

arminjewell (8752) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz can, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, cracker, some grass, touch of slight lemon into a bit of hoppy spice. Taste was a mix of grass, pine, slight lemon into a bit of spice, touch of cracker, vanilla, finishing fairly bitter. Decent, but not a whole lot going on.
