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...

Having recently moved to Arizona, it was in my nature to start seeking out local craft beer. This was the beer that drew first blood.
A: A nice looking beverage with a middle of the road yellow body, and nice foam. The pint glass it was served in had a little excess water in it, which effectively killed the head, but I have faith that this was situational.
S: The beer smells like an IPA, which is a good start based off of the name. To be completely fair though, I can't get the full aroma of a good beer when I am drinking in a bar. Something about Apple-tini's in the near vicinity kills my sense of smell.
T: A nice bitter IPA, that leaves the mouth slightly dry.
M: Prickly, like a cactus, only more enjoyable.
O: The overall first impression of this beer was a good one. I would drink this beer again, and as person that appreciates locally made goods, I will seek it out again.

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!
