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!

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.

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

Yellow, white head. Smells like white bread and some floral hops. Taste is a bit doughy, with some citrus notes. Thin bodied.

Kind of your generic IPA, except it comes in a12oz can. Light honey color, clear, medium head, light lacing. Aroma is hops with sweet honey malts. Flavor is just too sweet on the malts, hops are good but not tickling my tinies. Really, I am just rating this b/c my lady brought this all the way from Arizona and I should tick an Arizona beer eventually... why not this one.

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Can pours yellow with almost no head. Highly carbonated. Aroma of citrus. Flavors of lemon-lime with a refreshing hop finish, which, unfortunately last only a very shorts.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 17, 2013
12oz can. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of Pac NW hops, citrus, pine, floral and some light sweet malt. Flavor is balanced by sweet malt and bitter hops, no real alcohol taste. Medium to light body with average carbonation. Pretty good IPA, very drinkable.

jsquire (3386) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Orange color out of the can with a foamy off white head. Light citrus nose. Fruity IPA with orange juice, red grapefruit and tangerine flavors over some strawberry and kiwi. Long grapefruit rind finish. Softer than the more aggressive IPAs. Very nice.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Can. Hazy golden color. Muted nose of citrus hops. There are nice features here, with juicy hops and a clean malt body, but it all tastes stale. Iím not sure if itís a mild IPA, or old, since the can isnít dated. Ok as it is, but maybe better fresh?
