64oz growler pulled off tap at Total Wine in Gilbert. WTF is up with the proud pricing of growlers at these stores? I was going to fill mine with Santan beer, but nixed that when I realized I could get a fill at the brewery and it would cost less and be closer to my house! Ah well, that introduced me to this little hop-bomb...
A - Innocent looking, pale orange in color and watery up top. Carbonation looks good however. No lacing to speak of.
S - Spring flowers and grass, hops abound! Its so hop-forward though that theres a tinge of that bitter tomcat piss smell, off-putting I know but its the most precise way I can say it.
T - Thank goodness, no Tomcat here! Very grassy, crackery taste with a little sour citrus zing. Pretty good stuff!
M - Very bitter but even finish, warming alcoholic presence but its leveraged in nicely.
O - Hey, in my experience this is Arizona's best done West Coast IPA! Not ready to throw down with Cali yet, but keep em comin...

This is an amazing IPA. Wonderful smell, hops, a bit of pine but mostly just fresh hops. Taste is just awesome. Clean, fresh hops, not much malt which makes sense since this is their take on the West Coast IPA, which is my favorite style. I put this up there with the Cali big boys. My personal fav is Green Flash West Coast IPA but this is very, very close behind. You have to try it if you like the style, you will not be disappointed. Cheers!

not familiar with Dragoon Brewing before tonight (even thought it's from Tucson, AZ), this was served as part of a tasting flight at Whole Foods in a 4 oz. tasting glass...
tonight, I am compaing it with some other IPA's on tap at Whole Foods: Four Peaks Hop Knot IPA, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Mother Road Lost Highway Black IPA, and the standard for double IPA's Dogfish Head 90. I will also pour a Stone IPA from a bottle before the evening is over...
color and appearance are a medium honey yellow with a head that settles down to a thin lacey cap
smell is nice, Dragoon uses a single pale caramel malt and hops from the northwest US
taste is similarly balanced, malt and hops do not overwhelm each other, but complement and result in a very pleasant mouthfeel... very easy to drink with a pleasant aftertaste
In my search for the perfect IPA, this one is definitely in the top 20.
