COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Brewers have re-defined this traditional English Ale with an intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine character of Pacific Northwest hops. A dry, crisp malt character and aggressive alcohol make our I.P.A. a Hop-Heads Passion. 16.5°

Can. A golden color with a white head. A floral aroma with a citrus and pine finish. Smooth and easy drinking. A nice straightforward IPA.

This was a pleasant surprise at the Phoenix airport on draft. Crisp and hoppy. Just about what I like best in an IPA. Light color and great head.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 SanTan’s HopShock does so many things right. It offers lots of hop bitterness. At the same time, there’s alcohol sweetness and a sticky pine sensation that lingers on the palate. That touch of honey-like alcohol sugar is what really makes this brew shine.

12 oz can. Cooper red pour, with nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Taste - fairly mellow up front, mid way through there is a nice bit of citrus, finishes with a medium amount of hop bitterness. A nice drinkable IPA.

Poured from a 12oz can. Aroma is pine and English malt. Flavors are pine, tropical fruit, citrus, and English malt. Nice Ipa, a little bitter going down, for sure a dryer Ipa. Good beer overall, glad my brother brought me this from his trip!

Amber pour, thin tight head. Pine in the nose. Middle is nice mix of roasted malt and hops. Pleasant bitter finish.

DesertDevil (503) - Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2013
12-oz. can. Brief, sharp piney hop aroma with a bit of orange. Clear orange-amber in color with a solid head and thin lacing. Very bitter forward with a lot of pine resin, alfalfa, and some citrus with the briefest of light pastry dough maltiness before a somewhat harsh bitterness takes over to finish, leaving a dry, bitter aftertaste. Unlike the hop characteristics of many other IPAs, the flavor does not advance much past the one-note piney bitterness. This has never been a favorite of mine.

Lukaduke (2144) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Can from JustDrinkIt. Thanks. Pours a rich golden color with two fingers of frothy foam that sticks nicely. The nose is a bit restrained with honeycomb sweetness and a touch of citrus and stale grass. The palate follows with a decent balance between a sweet malt backbone and a bitter citrusy hop presence. The sweetness borders on cotton candy a bit and the mouthfeel is a tad sticky but overall a decent local offering and my first Arizona beer !

Can 12 oz. Pours deep clear amber with a great lacing beige head. Aroma is fruity piny citric caramel grassy malty. Flavor is as aroma, a bit rough bitterness taking too much space, remains fir a long time on the palate.
