Draft service into a nonic at Lumberyard brewpub in Flagstaff.

A: Clear, light amber color with a partial surface residue of white bubbles. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Weak hop aromatics suggest herbaceous spice. Otherwise aromas are very clean, even uninteresting, with little evidence of grain detected.

T: Begins dry, with herbaceous hop aromatics and lesser toasted malt. Acidity is restrained, although bitterness builds, into the middle where hop flavors become more floral. More toasted malt accompanies green herbaceous bitterness in the finish.

M: Thin viscosity, slightly sticky on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: Fairly easy to gulp down, but only mediocre when placed amongst the field of modern IPAs. Bitterness is emphasized over more appealing dry-hopped qualities, making this recipe smell and taste dated.

Serving type: on-tap

12oz can to pint shaker

Pours crystal clear light reddish gold, small finger of off white head. Style appropriate film of bubbles after that lays over. Some sticky lacing all the way down

Aroma is big on hop notes of pine, grapefruit with some hints of caramel and bread.

Flavor also initially blushes grapefruit and pine, nice sweetness in the middle that hints of warm danish, orange and pineapple, and finishes with the bitterness you'd expect of 90 IBU

Mouthfeel is light for the style and refreshing

Well medaled big brother to last year's GABF Pale Ale Gold, Knotty Pine PA, I often struggle which to grab. More often, I grab the IPA. Gorgeous appearance and while the hop profile of pine and citrus isn't exactly ground breaking, it is artfully done. As far as Arizona beer in general (Valley) distribution goes, definitely in my top 5, and an argument could be made for #1

Not only was Flagstaff IPA consumed with dinner, but doubled as a drink while I did my second homebrew! With 22 ounces, there was plenty to drink. On to the beer:

Not only is the head thick, but it holds much of its thickness well. Lots of lace ciricles around while below, a pale orange brew with copper hues and a clean body rest. Its aroma brings notes of pine, vague citrus fruit, light tangerine, and modest caramel base, though in terms of hop intensity, it's mild. Same in the taste as well. It comes across more of a "mild" IPA in terms of hop presence. Highlighting the taste are tree sap, some resin, burnt sugar, and a modest citrus note. Despite the mild hop presence, the beer did seem to have an oily texture while being medium bodied. Mild IPA or not, I still found pleasure drinking the bomber.
