Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: PhxHorn on 01-24-2008

Warm copper amber in color, SanTan brewers have re-defined this classic English Ale. An intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine flavor of Pacific Northwest Hops. A dry, crisp malt character & aggressive alcohol dominate our I.P.A. and make this bitter beer a hop-head’s passion!

12oz can at 41 F, flown in from Arizona last weekend, poured into a pilsner glass today. Crafted on 02/16/14, according to the stamp on the bottom. Batch #020009283.

Pours clear amber with a medium cream colored head that fades very slowly. Small amount of carbonation. Smell is nice, piney, citrusy, refreshing.

Taste has a nice sharp bitterness, especially in the aftertaste. The hop profile actually reminds me a bit of Hopslam, but Hopslam has a lot of honey sweetness. Man does it have a long lasting bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy, actually very nice. Overall, I'm fairly impressed. I remember being nonplussed by their beer when we visited their brewery a few years ago.

During a trip to northern Arizona i was hoping to find an IPA that smelled of the juniper berries i encountered during hikes in the AZ wilderness. This is it! Very piney & grapefruity. The 7.1 is quite hidden...for now. Some floral notes...very hoppy.
