Poured a wonderful clear amber body with a one finger fluffy white head that slowly receded to a thick cap of white foam leaving abundant lacing down the glass. A very nice looking pale ale. Scents of pine resin, grapefruit peel, an undertone of tropical fruit and orange flesh and bready malt. Overall impression of aroma is of a bright, clean, hoppy pale ale. Very nice. Flavor begins with medium-low bitterness, with notes of pine resin, orange zest, tropical fruit, grapefruit peel and pith and a balancing pale malt sweetness in the background. This moves into a middle with medium bitterness with notes of grapefruit peel, pine resin and a bit of balancing malt. Finish is medium-dry with notes of pine resin, grapefruit peel and a bit of grainy malt. Aftertaste is pine resin, grapefruit peel and grainy malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a nicely bitter, hop-forward pale ale that is crisp and assertive, with a wonderful combination of different flavors. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with medium-light carbonation and a somewhat creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a smooth session ale. Overall this is an excellent pale ale. It is hop-forward, flavorful, balanced and smooth with a wonderful aroma. One of the better pale ales out of Arizona.

Full notes taken to my phone while reviewing this at Pinon Flats Campground, Great Sand Dunes National Park, CO.

A- Slightly hazy deep golden body poured from the can to a chalice. A white crown rises atop the beer to just over one finger with a creamy consistency. Webs and drizzle lace deposits on the glass.

S- The nose is mostly hops but not entirely dominated by them or pungent. The main notes I get are citrus zest, pine and slight fruit hints. Pale cracked grains and yeast peek through just a bit.

T- Hops once again the main player but more balance comes through here. Hops provide grapefruit and citrus zest, dried apricot, pine, floral and herbal notes in rough order of strength. The backdrop consists of pale Crystal malt, light caramel sweet, cereal grain, yeast bread and fruit ester hints.

MF- The body is towards the light side but support is found in a crisp consistency between foamy and frothy. Fairly bitter in the after taste.

Hops in the front but not by too much as the yeast and malts start to show through after a few sips. More citrus than pine for me but refreshing and tasty nonetheless.

Pours a beautiful orange amber with a slight haze and a stream of bubbles rushing up the center to meat a creamy head of off white foam that lasts and leaves rings of lace. Gorgeous! Nose is sweet lemon peel with a bit of tart grapefruit. A touch of sweetness form malt and some hefty pine. A bit of spice tickles the nose and then as the beer warms it develops a sweeter fruit scent that is lightly tropical. taste is crisp dry and piney. The fruits are juicy and a bit sweet. The malt is a dry cracker and the pine is healthy and green. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy. The finish leaves some of that pine resin on the tongue and the back of the throat while the malt sweetness comes to you one last time. The fruits did fizzle a bit on the back end but it was still darn good. The pine is a steady constant even in the finish and the hops bitter is outstanding. It's good enough for an IPA but there was enough flavor in this that it fits very well. Leaves you with a bit of tart fanfare and lovely lingering aftertaste.

Thank you Kerry4porters for the chance to try this beer.

Had on tap at the brewery on 7-20-14.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose has hints of citrus and pine.

Taste is pale malts that are lightly sweet balanced nicely by citrus and pine.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall this is a nice bitter twist on the APA style of beer. Light in alcohol but big on hop bitterness. Definitely try it if you come across it!

apologies if i have forgotten or remembered incorrectly, but im pretty sure this is my first arizona brew. a pretty basic pale ale though here, and it doesnt do much to impress me. somewhere between rusty orange and light copper in color, rather clear, and straightening up in posture with three quarters of an inch of delicate white head, but it recedes quickly. the nose is generic C varietal hops, with little else but pale malt. its basic in every way, well made, but lacking the ability to hold my attention through much more than a glass. i like the feel better than the bittersweet malt/hop profile thats a dime a dozen. its softly carbonated, almost feels like a cask pull, and has a fuller than medium body giving it some nice weight as i sip on it. drinkable enough, but its boring to me, middling in every way. generic hopping, simple grain bill, and really not much different than any pale ale out there. passable, but i am interested in the location a lot more than the beer. what else is out there from arizona? this cant be the pinnacle can it?
