Notes & Commercial Description:

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!

A - 4.25 - nice copper/amber color, finger of white head that sticks around, leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

S - 4.5 - Amazing piney/grapefruit smell, citrus zest, pineapple, some caramel malt in the background,

T - 3.75 - Honestly kind of disappointing given the smell, more peppery, dirty taste with hop bitterness, maybe some grapefruit in there but that's a stretch, definite piney taste but more like dirty pine needles.

M - 3.75 - Too much bitterness for the taste. Light/medium mouthfeel. Alc covered. Aftertaste is a lot of bitterness with no specific tastes.

O - 4.00 - Honestly, the smell is good out of proportion to the taste. The taste is too dirty/peppery to appreciate any citrusy hops you'd normally look for in an American IPA. I remember why I didn't like this when I first tried it now.

Wow! If you are an IPA guy like I am, guarantee this is a beer you will like. The aroma is sweet and of fruit and soft notes of spice. The beers pours a unique orange color which is very inviting. The beer is sweet and earthy and tastes of pine. The beer pours beautifully and leaves a welcomed aftertaste that is very pleasant. San Tan have really stepped up their game as of late and are by a mile the best brewery in Arizona!
