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 didn’t 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.

Cybercat (5123) - Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Taps clear golden with a decent buff head that leaves good lacing. Aroma features a strong fruity note, supported by hops and a little malt. Flavor offers bolder notes of pear, apple, resiny hops and fresh malt plus a floral hint. Flavor doesn’t quite say IPA, but it is pleasing. Smooth mouthfeel delivers good body and lively fizz. Dig the black iron,

adasko (1886) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Hoppy, piney aroma, fruits on the back. No head, but even though - nice lacing, bit hazy, dark golden color. Taste similar to aroma. Fruity, piney, with nice bitterness in the end. Very drinkable, almost refreshing. Nice solid IPA.

Lubiere (12883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2016
A hazed golden amber ipa with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light floral hops, resinous and piney, light treacle, pleasant. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light metallic notes, so-so.

jjuf1853 (1301) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2015
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.

slowrunner77 (10146) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 22, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2015 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.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 15, 2015
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.
