On tap at the 2010 AZ Strong Beer Festival. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. The nose is skunky hop oils, malt and sweet citrus. The taste is caramel, sweet citrus and a mellow bitter resin finish. Serviceable but nothing to write home about.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Draft - Citrus and pine. Gold with a rich white head. Grapefruit and resin. Bitter resin finish. Average. Draft at brewery - Resin isn’t as pronounced, still pretty average though.

Draft dark gold and hazy. Limited nose. Taste has a strong malt backbone with bitter slightly floral hops. Strong solid body. This is those who like a maltier and solid IPA. Good. Too bad about the nose.

On tap at Papago Brewpub. An OK American Pale Ale but not hoppy enough for an India Pale Ale. Decent citrus flavors but no bitterness.

Pint glass at the brewery. Medium amber pour with a nice head that lasts. Citrus pine grapefruit with a nice bite atvthe end. Go for it.

Had at Flannys annv party. Very hop forward beer, liots of citrus and pine notes. Color was a nice golden color. High bitterness-could use more malt to balance it but a very drinkable IPA.
