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!

I have never had an IPA I didnít like.....until now. This is very bland. Very low IBU, low alochol, low body. Its like a light IPA, which would be fine, if they told me it was a light IPA.

For some reason I thought this was going to be a black IPA. Well itís a dark gold. Middle of the road or slightly below IPA. More floral, and kinda malty for what I thought would be a west coast style.

Amber color with a good sized frothy white head. Vaguely sweet with moderate vague bitterness. Meh.

If itís consistently bland at least thats something. This is anything but an IPA. A mediocre Scottish Ale at best but very little chance this would have had enough hops to make the trek to British Troops in India much less outside of AZ.

Weak aroma. Malt, caramel, hops, bitters with some sweetness flavors. Dark golden color with a lite head. OK beer.

Caytinator (943) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2014
25oz on tap (yeah!). Pretty decent IPA, apricot notes, slightly grassy, nothing to set it apart from the pack unfortunately. Not a bad beer, though, and completely drinkable. I canít fault them much for having a very basic, IPA.

jdobbs (380) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
pours golden with a thin, white head and no lacing. Taste is surprisingly malty to start followed by some bitter, hoppiness at the end with a touch of citrus that lingers on the palate.

New yearís eve can in the Wigwam hot tub. Surprised this isnít rated higher. Pretty tasty black ipa with a good citrus and pine hop bitterness plus some malt strength to keep it balanced. Tasty.

Can from BevMo, Phoenix. Strong hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus. Pours golden with a thin, white head and no lacing. Taste is surprisingly malty to start followed by some bitter, hoppiness at the end with a touch of citrus that lingers on the palate. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared by beerboxer. Pours clear amber with a thin beige head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a moderately bitter finish.
