Bottle. Nice frothy pour, pile of sudsy foam atop yellow-orange. There’s a light citric aroma. The beer drinks with an easy to gobble body, lightly acidic with tart but mellow orange citrus. (#5885, 12/14/2014)

6.1% abv 12oz can pours with a clear copper body that has gold hues and supports an off white head. The modest aroma offers up malts and snippets of citrus hoppiness and little else. The taste starts with some bitter grapefruit and lime hoppiness as well as sweeter malts and malt sweetened pine hop resiny notes. This has a nice offering of hops but it may not be the freshest can which impacts the overall hoppy experience.

Bomber. Labeled as Flagstaff IPA. It pours clear copper with light tan head. The aroma has full notes of bitter grapefruit, pineapple and lime peel along with thin sweet malts in the background. The taste has a pleasing mix of grapefruit, lime and pineapple hop flavor and bitterness but leaning firmly in the direction of bitterness. Around the edges of the citrus hops are thin rings of spicy hops and sweet malts. Nice hoppy bitter IPA.

This is a mighty fine IPA in a great atmospheric brewpub. Like to knotty pine pale ale too.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Tom C. Hazy deep golden. Nice hoppy aroma, citric and a bit “green”. Flavor of citric hops, slightly “green”, rather dry, with a nice bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

Not the best IPA, but very refreshing and enjoyable on a warm day running in the mountains.
