3.51/5  rDev -4.9%

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?

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.

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.

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!

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.

3.34/5  rDev -9.5%

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.
