COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A superb example of an American Pale Ale. The Cascade hop flavor just explodes in your mouth. Combined with the clean malt character and smooth finish, you are left utterly wanting another when your glass is empty.

22 oz bottle. Pouras a hazy orange with a massive beige head. Nose is toast grains and earthy hops. Taste is highly carbonated iced tea and earthy hops. I think this is infected as it is way off and that would explain the massive head and excessive carbonation.

Another excellent beer from this establishment. Normally, brewpub pales are boring and unoriginal. It looked very nice in the glass....amber-orange with an average sized head. had the usual suspects of a pale, but it came together very well, leading to a citric, dry finish.

Draft. Slightly hazy copper color with a white frothy head. Smells like boiling wort- tons of barley with some hoppiness. Clean malt flavor with a very subtle bitterness and some toffee notes.

Bottled. Not a bad beer. Had a slight bitter taste up front that mellowed into a west coast pale ale.

Sampled on draught at the brewery oulet in Pheonix, and in a growler to go. Very well done example of American Pale Ale with great hop aromatics and bitterness. Burning Bird pours to a beautiful, bright, amber color with a nice white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. Lots of good citrus hop aromas in the nose with just a touch of malt sweetness. The palate is lean with some good biscuit and sweet malt flavor, that leads into some tangy/fruity hop flavor. Burning Bird ends with some more malt and fruit up front, then finishes with a nice burst of citrus hop bitterness that lingers. Fresh, flavorful, and very, very drinkable beer on draught at the brewpub outlet. A pint after pinter, and very food friendly beer that works well with a number of dishes on their menu. If in Pheonix, the brewpub is really a must visit. Small, cozy place, very warm and inviting, fantastic service, good food, lots of choices, and growlers to go.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 26, 2004
Cloudy copper-orange color. Tremendous, variously sized bubbled head. Smell is sweet hops: sugar, pineneedles, pineapple and apricot. Consistency is thin to medium. Very watery taste that is very mild because of the apricots, similar to what happens if you’ve ever had apricot tea. Still, some pineapple and pineneedle hops are detectable and quite flavorful. Ending is dry, bitter and fruity.

Floral, pine, and citrus aroma. Amber with off-white head...carbonated. Flavour is same as aroma with mild caramel and sour fruit. Carbonated with lasting bitterness.

Had this on tap at the J.W. Marriot’s Meritage Steakhouse in Phoenix. Nose of detergent, citrus and spruce. This brew is a sparkling honey amber. The white frothy head is mostly lasting with good lacing. The flavor starts sweet and malty. The finish is slighty acidic and moderately bitter, nice complexity and balance. The light to medium body is dry and lively and feels astringent at the finish.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Reviewed 12/21/2008 (bottle): Pours a very clear filtered amber color body. Small white head. Piney, hoppy aroma, but some sweet hoppiness too. Some alcohol in the nose too. Thin body, dusty bitter chocolate taste. Some hoppiness but mostly bitter. A little sweetness. Somewhat clean aftertaste. Some nuttiness as it warms.

Thanks for the opportunity to try this beer! A-Body is a crystal clear golden yellow hue that pours with a massively soapy, foamy, puffy white head. Head eventually fades to 1/2 finger and has great retention from there. Lots of lacing is left all the way down the glass. S-Lots of citrus comes through first. Lemon orange and grapefruit juices are definitely the highlight of this but it has a nice accent of floral hops and a sweet pale malt backbone. T-Taste is similar to the nose. Juicy citrus flavors are upfront and the highlight of the flavor but there is a nice pale malt backing to it upfront. The hop profile almost immediately changes to floral as this one ends with a sharp floral hop bitterness and slight piny refreshment. What lingers on the palate is a long lasting minimally invasive resiny bitterness, piny refreshment, and citrus flavor. P-Medium tingly carbonation and nice smooth, oily body. O- This is a great APA and a great session beer. I wasn’t expecting too much from this brew but got a very nice, sessionable classic APA. One of my favorite APAs overall actually. My 2nd from this brewery-and I definitely like this one much better. Well done by this brewery I wouldn’t have ever known existed if not for this trade.
