3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served cold, poured into IPA glass. Dark amber color with nice tan head. Lacing remained fairly consistent while drinking. One of the darker IPA's. Scents of lemon and grapefruit with some piney floral scents. Did not taste as much of the floral/fruit as I would have liked. Good bitterness on the back end. A great local brew, easy to take camping in the aluminum cans. Nothing spectacular but certainly a decent IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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 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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. It’s a clear, dark golden to amber beer with a dense, off-white head. The aroma is on the hoppy side, with pine cones and orange peel, some maltyness. The flavor has a pleasant bitterness, with orange peel, grapefruit and pine cones. Unfortunately, all too weak for an IPA. Full body, soft carbonation, quite dry. Bitter, citrusy finish with some grapefruit. A pretty tasteful one, but it lacks the punch I’d want from my IPA’s. 130819
