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°

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!

DesertDevil (534) - 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 (2243) - 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 !

DiarmaidBHK (3455) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Can from AJ’s fine foods Scottsdale. Pours light brown with a thin khaki head. A bit leafy on the nose but that fades very quickly. Bitterness is very forward in the tongue. There are faint notes of citrus but very faint. Doesn’t seem that well balanced to me.
