Thanks to Joey for opening up this bottle at La Bella Pizza tonight. I have heard quite a bit about this beer and wanted to try it for a while.

This beer poured a bit too pale for an IPA in my opinion, almost a straw yellow but with a decent amount of head, good lacing too.

Huh? Hardly any hops detectable on the nose, what I first pick up is a weird dirty grain aroma. Maybe a little citrus after the beer warms up, some grassy tones, light caramel, but there really isn’t all that much in there.

Tastes grainy, and the grain bill does not seem to be in harmony in this beer. Hardly any hops in the flavor as well, just a little earthy at times. Some lemon flavor later on. Very thin body. Faint caramel in the finish.

Decent carbonation but a bit too thin for an ipa, seems more like a pale ale.

Quite disappointed in this one, not sure if we had an old bottle but it doesn’t seem like it…the malt was also very thin.

many thanks to tayner!

brilliant, clean and golden pour. thin head. not a super aggressive aroma but it's definitely hoppy. a bit grassy and flowery.

good clean taste. smooth and easy. this is the kinda IPA that i would use to introduce someone to craft beer. it's not overly shocking to the palate, it's flavorful and crisp.

not one of the bigger IPA's i've had but it could easily be a regular summer drinker.

very nice

Pours a golden honey color with a white head that dissipates pretty quick but remains an oily film across the top. Smells of HUGE hops, green, bitter, fresh, pine-y hops. I felt like i just laid down face first in a barrel of hop flowers. Taste is well, HOPS. It is loaded with bitter, pine-y, green hops that are oily, mouthcoating, and, well, plentiful! These are now being bottled, only available at the brewery for now, and at only 36.50 a case it is, by far, the best bottled beer made in arizona. I am so happy this is FINALLY in the bottle. I plan on keeping a steady supply in my fridge. This can easily compete with the "big boys" around the country!
