From the bottle, poured a nice golden copper color. Nice head, good lacing. Aroma is slightly piney with English Nobel undertones. Burps up with a very nice hoppy flavor! Overall a really nice ipa. Finishes fairly dry with a lingering bitterness. I love it

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Has potential, but falls a little flat. It pours a dark yellow with a small foamy head, aroma is piney & grapefruit-y, too. It has a pleasant initial taste, but it unravels a bit through the middle and aftertaste. Meh, I’m not impressed, but it’d be passable for a hot day. Seems stronger than 6.1%.

Pint on tap. Clear honey color, big bubbly head. Aroma is floral, almost like perfume, very good. Bitter taste (of course) but not overwhelming. English malts contribute some "creaminess" and the floral notes are there. Lots of aftertaste/linger. Recommended.

22oz bottle in Arizona. Decent IPA - the lemon/citrus aftertaste is normal to slightly elevated but otherwise a decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home in CT with the family. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a frothy white head. The nose holds ripe citrus fruits, mellow caramel, orange, pine. Medium sweet flavor with some bready malts, toasted grains, oily pine, nips of toffee, grass, melon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Some spruce in the finish, more toasted malts, ripe citrus fruits. Drinkable stuff.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Nice frothy pour, pile of sudsy foam atop yellow-orange. There’s a light citric aroma. The beer drinks with an easy to gobble body, lightly acidic with tart but mellow orange citrus. (#5885, 12/14/2014)

6.1% abv 12oz can pours with a clear copper body that has gold hues and supports an off white head. The modest aroma offers up malts and snippets of citrus hoppiness and little else. The taste starts with some bitter grapefruit and lime hoppiness as well as sweeter malts and malt sweetened pine hop resiny notes. This has a nice offering of hops but it may not be the freshest can which impacts the overall hoppy experience.

Bomber. Labeled as Flagstaff IPA. It pours clear copper with light tan head. The aroma has full notes of bitter grapefruit, pineapple and lime peel along with thin sweet malts in the background. The taste has a pleasing mix of grapefruit, lime and pineapple hop flavor and bitterness but leaning firmly in the direction of bitterness. Around the edges of the citrus hops are thin rings of spicy hops and sweet malts. Nice hoppy bitter IPA.
