COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Iphonephan (2676) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Grassy hop nose. More biscuit than hops in the flavor. Not a prime example of the style.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This brew is a clear golden color with a thick off-white head that evaporates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, grainy malt and fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

umich03jm (1576) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Can, extra from trade with my friend Randy in Arizona. Mess of a pour. Cloudy light orange pour with ridiculously big foamy head that fades slowly. Aroma is flowers and corn syrup. Taste is sugary sweet and fruity with lots of flowers too. Light bitterness. Not sure how they call this an IPA, way too sweet and not enough hops.

With black in the aroma I figured on a black IPA. Not the case. A standard IPa in color/aroma with a bit more malt in the boday than I really like. Mostly it’s just okay. Some late hops leave a good bitterness in the aftertaste.

CJack (31) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Poured from can, clear and pale-golden. Light head dissipated quickly, light lacing. Pleasant aroma is floral with some pine, not very strong. Excellent taste, sweet caramel and fresh hops. Not exceptional, but very decent highly drinkable brew. ---Rated whilst imbibing

DMLINAZ (266) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Enjoyable IPA. From a can into a tulip-style glass, pours orange with a solid line of white foamy head. Nice aroma of hops, citrus, floral. Flavor matches, but starting with malts, with a mild hoppy kick. Medium bodied.

mikedR (928) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2013
More malty than hoppy IPA. Surprisingly good malty backbone however. Nice mouthfeel. The IPA-ness comes in more from the citrusy and floral overtones than any bitterness. This is a good introduction to the style and also for those who are not partial to them. But hopheads will be disappointed. Overall, good!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Yellow, white head. Smells like white bread and some floral hops. Taste is a bit doughy, with some citrus notes. Thin bodied.

From the Can, Dark orange pour with a big white head. Resiny and grassy hops in the aroma, a little pine as well. Decent bitter bite. Its an ok IPA.
