Growler, direct from the brewery. Vacationing I felt the draw of a good beer from the parking lot. This beer was a shoe in from the sampler that they offer. Refreshing, hoppy, ass kicking. You pay for it. Coming ad going. You will like it.

Thanks Sebastian. Golden colored ale, with a smooth, creamy and long lasting white head. Appropriate mouth feel. Bright hop aroma showcases notes of lemon and pine. Flavor has some depth and balance to it. I like the malt sweetness, with hints of caramel and biscuit. Vibrant hops as well, with notes of pine and lemon. A nice ale.

Pours a beautiful deep amber color with thin white head. Wonderful aroma of pine and citrus. Nice medium body, hides the alcohol well. Flavor of not overly sweet barley and bountiful hops. Not bitter though (darn). Actually a pretty good balance. Good beer.

Unexpected hand bottle. Green, fresh and minty aroma. Just a small amount of citrus meat (orange and tangerine). Rather thick and heavy aroma, normally associated with pine resin, but not so much here. Citrus zest and outdoors. Pours a thick, hazy dark orange. A thin head leaves decent sticky lacing. Quite full bodied for the style. Thick and heavy with a bit of residual sweetness but never cloying. Flavor is accentuated by orange meat, slight pine resin, tangerine and clementine zest. Some herbalness (there’s the mint again). Hoppy as all getout, but a good dose of bready and slightly toasted caramel malt keep the intense hops in check. Awesome drinkability. Intensely hoppy throughout but remains quite drinkable. Thanks for the awesome treat Sebastian!

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2007
From growler @ Mesa Gathering. Pine and dry citrus vine aroma. Amber body with off white head. Citus flavor with a chewy malt texture and medium dryness. Good refreshment.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Sampled from growler, courtesy boboski. Orange-copper color with a sparse head. Aroma is moderately piney, slightly peppery, but subdued for a DIPA. Taste has a smooth, strong hop flavor throughout the taste and the finish lingers pleasantly. A very smooth, easy-drinking DIPA.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Growler. Rustic, translucent deep amber pour with burned copper orange hues. Forms a small, creamy, light beige head. Slow recession of foam, only fully after the glass is mostly drained. Looks tasty, but standard. A pleasant hop affront rings in the aroma. The nose is timid but very affable. Alcohol is mild as well. Loads of sweet malt and toasted grains ooze from the glass. The remainder, and majority, is the hoppiness, understated as it is: notes of pine, grapefruit and florals, with rigid apricot and peach,all coalesce into a tremendously complex and immensely enjoyable aroma, one that brings me back time and again for another deep breath. The flavor is loaded with barging fruity notes. Additions of mango, tangerine and more pine resin infiltrate the taste. Balance and drinkability is extraordinary. This is far more quaffable than most DIPA’s I’ve had. The palate is awesome, with a smooth mouthfeel, adequate and flavor-separating carbonation, sticky resins. Finishes lightly drying, moderately bitter, with great balance and tremendous flavors. Alcohol heat is creeping, eventually highly warming. A great beer, understated and subsequently likely to be underrated.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Clear copper/bronze. Small white head. Aroma of huge hop resin and grapefruit, light spiciness, green hops, and pale malt sweetness. Flavor adds some pine and a very light toastiness to the malt. Medium/full body, moderate carbonation, lightly syrupy. Very good IIPA.

Growler from FlacoAlto, with many thanks. Clear orange color with a smallish head. Good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and floral hops with caramel malt. Taste is sweet and perfumy, ends fairly dry and is not bitter in the least. Middle of the road balanced for an IIPA. Impressive for my first AZ beer.
