Slightly hazy golden amber with a large foamy white head with decent retention. Pretty nice lacing.
Sweet caramel malts first, followed by a citrusy grapefruit hop aroma. The hops are pretty muted, but I'm not sure how old the bottle is. Not bad, but I would like much more of a hop kick to the nose.
Similar to the aroma, malt forward, heavy on the caramel malt. A tad stale tasting. Not much in the way of hops here either. I'm just getting the basic citrusy hops, moderately bitter, but not a whole lot of hop flavor.
Moderate body and moderate carbonation. Leaves some residue on the tongue to accompany the bitterness.
Not a super huge fan of this one. It tastes more like an amber ale than an IPA to me - a little heavy on the caramel malts and not heavy enough on the hops. Kind of a funky, stale aftertaste.

Big off white head slowly settles to a quarter to half inch froth covering a clear light caramel golden colored beer.
Citrus and pine hops aroma come through nicely.
Slight bitter hops coming through in citrusy and light pine hops tasting beer.
A dry slightly bitter dry aftertaste with a bit of the piney and citrus aspects of the taste stinking around with this medium bodied beer.
Pretty good tasting IPA for a six pack cans, usually better IPA's come in bombers or stuff like that.

Poured a nice clear amber, with thin white head that quickly dissipated, leaving a bit of lacing. Quite nice on the eyes. Scents of grapefruit and pine. A nice IPA scent. Flavor is very pine forward, very much a big hit of pine resin. Grapefruit pith is the secondary flavor, with a bit of a tiny floral hint in the finish. The bitterness level is quite high, befitting the beer's 90 IBUs. There is a tiny hint of malt present, but overall it's pine, a hint of grapefruit and a tiny amount of floral hops. A nice piney hop bomb. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. About what is standard for the style. Overall this is a good IPA, with a nice pine forward character and a nice high level of bitterness. Well worth trying.

I had this on tap at their brew pub in Flagstaff, a day after I had two pints of it at the Arizona Biltmore, also on tap. Very good, a solid IPA.
The hop taste in this one to me was mostly grapefruit and pine, more on the grapefruit side. The aroma and taste compared well to each other. Rings of lacing all the way down the pint glass as it disappeared.
90IBU beer, and it tasted like it. Rather crisp and enjoyable.

Poured a copper orange murky color with 2-3 fingers of khaki white head. Thick, white, foamy, layered lacing on the sides. Very good retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled a pleasant mix of citrus hops and floral hops. Citrus was grapefruit, lemon, pine and tangerine. Sweet sugary floral notes. Some sweet caramel malts as well.
Taste wasn’t quite as good as the smell, but still pretty decent. Floral hops really come through. Citrus is orange, tangerine, orange rind and some grapefruit. A little bit thick and grainy.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Slightly bitter, but long finish. A bit heavy.
This beer was much better than I anticipated. I would definitely have it again and probably seek it out.
