12 oz bottle. (Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.
Clear amber colour with a tiny white head.
Fruits, grapefruit and pine in the aroma. Hoppy I mean. Mild and a bit sweet bitterness. Smooth. The flavour is hoppy... dark and... thereís chlorine... like swimming pool water. Bitterness is more than light. Hmm... drinkable.

Grapefruit aroma and taste with pine with an extremely desert dry finish. Very similar to sumpin sumpin but without the body or palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is topped by a thin pale head. The beer is a clear light coper color. The aroma smells of menthol, pine, light citrus, some toasted almost nutty malt character and a caramelized whole grain cracker like character.
The flavor has a strong woody pine character to it. It is baccked by a supporting grapefruit note, a touch of crystal malt character, but really has quite firm bitterness. The beer is fairly light bodied, it has a touch of viscosity, but not enough to detract.
This an old school IPA, focused bitterness, lots of pine and citrus like grapefruit. It does seem quite fresh, which is nice as this is the type of IPA that seems to fall off fast. Not bad, perhaps a bit better than I was expecting even.

OK, I confess the numbers are meaningless here. Itís one of the beers I drank during my family reunion in Santa Fe, but I donít really recall it and my notes arenít quite helpful. Yet I wanted to include it in my list. Iíll remember it next time!

This was a pretty good standard IPA. The hops are there but quite a bit of caramelly malts as well. I enjoyed it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden with a white head. The aroma is full of floral hops with some biscuit malt notes. Flavor is more of the same. I get some lighter biscuit and pale malts, as well as some floral and perfume-like hops. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle @ the Great Best Western Las Cruces tasting of 2013 with yarn connoisseur, Rachel. Pours a bit hazy, burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Spicy, somewhat resiny, grapefruity hoppy, light cat pee, toasty malty aroma. Tangy, spicy, a bit peppery, piney, grapefruity hoppy flavor. A bit over the top but not bad.

Pours a nice cloudy honey color in the glass. Nice sweet citrus and banana aroma. Muted piney bitter flavor with a slight bitter citrus tang at the end. Overall, a drinkable brew but not too complex.
