Probably the best beer I have ever had brewed in Arizona. Appearance near a translucent light amber with an eggshell white head that lingers. Smell is of hops and a bit of bready malt. Not overwhelming in the nose like Dos Cabezas DIPA. Citrus hits the palate first with a bit of malt in the middle and finishes with a crippling herbal bitterness from the organic Simcoe hops. Mouthfeel is perfect. This beer is one of my favorite IPAs and I would liken it very much to the Row 2 Hill 56 that won over my heart at good ol RRBC. Bravo

Complex big ipa with lots of carbonation. Grapefruit and orange hop flavours. On tap at the source. This will be their first can. Ordinary looks and mild aroma.

An aggressively sweet and bitter combo here, with a sticky sweet nose. It's obviously going after that tropical fruit vibe that's so du jour these days, but I don't think it quite nails it. It needs to dry out a bit.

Received in a trade...new 32oz can! The can gives you the message that it needs to be drunk now...don't wait!! Wow that wonderful smell hits you when you pop the top. Taste is grapefruit all the way with a great mouthfeel. Excellent trade!
