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!

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.

Can. Something of a blend between the NW styles Iím used to and a Midwest IPA. Plenty of hop character, but too big a malt bill for my taste. Not bad, though!

Not the best IPA, but very refreshing and enjoyable on a warm day running in the mountains.

Can thanks to Josh! Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light resinous pine note with a good amount of grass and grain backing. Flavor has same resinous pine note with a touch of sweet citrus and a grain and grass backbone.

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.

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.
