BEER INFO

Brewed by:
SanTan Brewing Co.
Arizona, United States
santanbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A wheat IPA that features hops from our friends in the southern hemisphere (Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin). Almost 40% wheat malt, but is fermented, hopped, dry-hopped, and filtered like a west coast style IPA. The wheat makes it a very satiable beer and the aroma will carry loads of citrus and tropical fruit.

65 IBU

Poured into a pint glass: color is gold, transparent, light carbonation, head presents with off white color and is 1 finger thick on first pour.

Smell is slightly tropical fruit hop oriented at first, then melds with citrus and some earthy notes.

Taste is similar with light hop flavors of tropical fruit, tangerine like citrus, and then some earthy hops; wheat is noticeable after some warmth and in the presence of the flavors.

Mouthfeel is not too bitter for its strength, hops are present in the flavor and aroma but the wheat performs as intended to soften this ipa.

Overall a good wheat forward ipa, i think it could withstand more bittering hops. Reminds me of a stronger flying fish extra pale ale with a variant on the hop profile.

Look - Poured from a 12 oz can. Solid three finger head, straw yellow in color.
Smell - citrus and tropical fruit scents, detectable but not overly strong.
Taste - mellow in flavor. tropical fruit flavors come through, though the beer has a malty finish. does not drink like 65 IBUs, probably due to the high malt presence.
Feel - medium bodied, medium high carbonation, and a moderately strong brew at 7.1%
Overall - my first time in Arizona, and this is the only 6-pack that I picked up. Not half bad. A remarkably easy drinking and pretty flavorful beer.

Can from Whole Foods in Sedona.

A clear light copper with a dense white head with good retention and lacing this looks solid. The nose is moderately hoppy with citrus, papaya and some mango. Navel orange and clementine notes are present. Minimal malt character. The palate opens mildly bitter with citrus oil bitterness and a moderate tropical fruit flavor. Bitterness is clean and mildly oily, tempering the fruity notes from the hops. Light in body with a mild wheat like grist character, this has a mild water cracker flavor. Light in body and arguably slightly watery,this beer is softly carbonated and mildly bitter on the finish with fruity flavors present. Solid.

The notes of peach, apricot and tropical fruit promoted on the can never materialized in taste or aroma. This is a one trick pony Wheat IPA, which it is not even advertised as being. That one trick is the high ABV %. Sure, they use a lot of hops, but if the only flavor profile is bitter hops, is it worth it? No notes of citrus, no notes of pine, severely undercarbonated. Perhaps I just got a bad batch, but if not, it is more proof that Arizona brewers need to step up their game.

Good amount of white Grapefruit juice up front. Pine, orange, tangerine round out the rest of the flavors. Slightly undercarbed. Prickly bitterness with restrained sweetness. It's good.
