look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Can best by 13 Jun 14 at 45 degrees
Faint pine aroma
Head average (4.5 cm), off-white, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing good – thick rings
Body light orange, slight haze
Flavor begins with slight pine flavor and bitterness, ends slightly sweet with astringent after flavor; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

An unremarkable pale ale, with a not very clean or crisp taste, more of a weak IPA. However, I'm so use to IPAs, not to mention not acclimatized to the dryness here in AZ, that I maybe judging this a bit harshly - give it a try.

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?

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!

White to slightly off white head of considerable size pretty much just sits above a clear golden-copper colored beer.

Nice hops aroma of light pine accented with some citrus aspects.

Pine from the hops seems to be the most prevalent thing in the taste of this slightly bitter pale ale.

There is a dryness to the slightly piney hops aftertaste of this medium bodied beer.

A well done pale ale with a nice amount of piney hops coming through but not to the point of being overbearing or overwhelming. I recommend giving this one a try.
