Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is a true West Coast IPA–it is pale in color, with with bracing bitterness, high alcohol content (about 7.4% abv) and a fruity/floral/citrus hop aroma. It is made from a simple malt bill: North American base and pale caramel malt. We use copious amounts of Northwest hops (Summit, Columbus, Magnum and Zythos) all throughout the boil, with most of it going in within the last 15 minutes. After fermentation is complete, we dry hop it with approximately 1 boatload of each of the same hop varieties.

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.
