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.

Pale copper, bright clarity. The white foam is almost two fingers in thickness and it holds amazingly considering I can see almost no carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is a bit underwhelming. Light pine-like hop character with a tangy caramel malt edge. There's not enough forcefulness from the hops.

The taste is exactly what I expected from the smell. Very one-dimensional hop flavor. The caramel malt is a bit dry and the finish has a moderate tangy bitterness. The carbonation is definitely too low on this and it hurts the overall flavor.

I was disappointed considering I really loved the draft version of this brew. This tasted completely different. Of course there is no freshness dating, so age could be a factor, but we just started getting this beer available in bottles in Tucson within the past few weeks. Unfortunately it's just another Arizona beer that doesn't make the grade.

Another beer obtained at pagosa. Copper color, white head, about 1" deep, not much lacing or retention. Citrus bittery aroma, caramel.

Decent hop flavor, a bit one dimensional, in that it is pretty much just a sweet, slightly dry citrus with a ton of bitterness. No way of knowing if this was fresh or not, the flavor profile makes me think it might not be under 2 months old. The caramel that was noticeable in the nose doesn't do a very good job at soaking up the bitterness.

Was pretty much another ipa in a long list of AZ ipa's that were all middle of the road.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy apricot with golden hues. Head retention is very nice with some rings of lacing. Frothy, white head, more whipped up than a flat froth.

Nose: Pine, citrus, and candy, with some malty calmness at the end.

Taste: Nice and clear mouth feel. It is crisp and dry when such, and malty sweet towards the end. It separates them well. Bread and crispy citrus up front, with some bitter hop oils. Melts away to a light malty finish.

Notes: A nice, standard IPA.
