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!

My favorite cam from the variety pack and since my brother inlaw doesn’t like ipas they are all mine. Pours orange with nice fluffy head and pleasant tropical fruit aromas. Tastes plenty hoppy, with caramel, malt, citrus, pine and grapefruit. Dry on finish.

FlacoAlto (4125) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2012
A vigorous pour into my Bruery Tulip produces a two finger thick, pale tan tinged head that leaves lots of lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer is a pale amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, bright copper / gold-tinged hue when held up to the light. The aroma is peppery, menthol like, with lots of pine, and a green woodiness, as well as notes of herbal grapefruit-zest, and a touch of tangelo zest. The end has aromas of cracker like malt and a hint of hay like grain.

The beer is fairly light bodied and quite quaffable. The beer has lots of tangelo zest, Curacao orange peel, nice lychee notes, and even some kumquat zest. A solid, but smooth bitterness gets a touch green and herbal in the finish, but the bitterness of this IPA is on the low side for an IPA. Slight menthol notes, a touch of pine, a definite woody peppery note, and a hint of hemp oil. There is a touch of malt character here, it contributes subtle notes of cracker like malt, and round pale malt flavors.

This is a nice IPA; it is interesting how herbal the nose is, but the flavor is much more fruit focused in its hoppiness. A pleasant surprise that I would be happy to drink a few more of. This drinks on the light side for an IPA, which is certainly nice, and I would guess that it isn’t much more than 6% abv.

DuffMan (8810) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
Can. Medium orange amber with floaties and an average off white head. No lace. Aroma is quite malty, bread and caramel, with soft piney hops. The palate delivers the same in flavour and balance. This checks all the boxes for an IPA, but doesn’t really excite. It’s okay but not great.
