Great nose of mostly pine, some malt as well. Huge flavors of piney, bitter hops. Like my friend said- it tastes like the forest. Good maltiness to balance the hops. One of the best beers from AZ, imo. DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
From the can. Clear golden color with a big white head that fades down to a sliver. Nose is loaded with citrus fruits; grapefruit, pineapple. The flavor is tons more of the same, lots of juicy citrus fruit and only a touch of bitterness. Just what a sessionable West-coast IPA should be.

12 ounce can. This is a great IPA. As soon as I cracked the can I was hit with a huge citrus hop bouquet. The flavor has a firm malt backbone allowing for the big hop profile. This is a fanatic IPA. hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours a golden orange. Aromas of pineapple, slight mango, citrus, malt, slight pine and grapefruit. Initial flavor is sweet with a nice bitter backbone. Flavors of tropical fruit, grapefruit rind bitterness, a nice hop spiciness, typical malt background and a little touch of resin/pine. Mouthfeel is oily and a tad sticky. Overall a pretty solid IPA. Worth a try. quiznoaz (310) - Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2012
Orange nose. This one goes both ways from the start, moving from a nice malt directly to both a light bitterness and orange overtones. I’d say its bipolar, but going both ways makes it sound more interesting.

Can. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and sweet malt. Flavor has lots of dank grapefruit and an almost cat pee flavor which makes me think of Simcoe hops, again I get orange, tangerine and pineapple with some sweet malt. The body is on the lighter side of medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty IPA, but feels a little more like an APA since it isn’t as hoppy as most IPAs. dwm1034 (786) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Draft..phoenix. Pours rich, foggy orange...mild hoppy nose and initial flavor ... Has more an APA taste and feel than an IPA....smooth and tasty rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2012
On Tap at Four Peaks. Clear deep golden hue with a thin white head. Rather nice scent of floral hops with a hint of apricot. Taste was a little piny and bitter with a hint of straw. Light body with medium carbonation, perhaps I’m spoiled being from Denver but this beer did not wow me or taste complex in any way. It was a passable IPA at best, but did have a nice nose. burg326 (5630) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
12 ounce can pours an orangish, amberish color aromas of grapefruit, and pine. Flavor is the same with a huge bitterness at the end from the grapefruit flavors. Amnesia87 (26) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2012
12oz can courtesy of cbkschubert.
Pours a nice cloudy golden color, decent finger or so of head.
Smells delicious to me, very sweet and fruity with a bit of malt.
Taste is... meh. Very sweet. A bit bitter, and kinda... watery...
