4.22/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a: dark golden leaning towards amber.. 1.5 finger head.. leaves nice lacing.

s: big citrus notes, pine, danky ganja, sugar coated pink grapefruit.. sweet floral hops to round it out.. some bready notes..

t: prickly hop bitterness upfront.. resiny pine needles, big grapefruit bitterness, strong citrus peel..floral hops as well! finish has some bready notes to even it out.. but this is pretty much a hop bomb!

mf: prickly carbonation with a medium body.. maybe just a tad bit too carbonated for my liking. but still has a nice creamy body.

o: nice hop bomb.. hop heads won't be disappointed.

Poured a nice clear amber, with thin white head that quickly dissipated, leaving a bit of lacing. Quite nice on the eyes. Scents of grapefruit and pine. A nice IPA scent. Flavor is very pine forward, very much a big hit of pine resin. Grapefruit pith is the secondary flavor, with a bit of a tiny floral hint in the finish. The bitterness level is quite high, befitting the beer's 90 IBUs. There is a tiny hint of malt present, but overall it's pine, a hint of grapefruit and a tiny amount of floral hops. A nice piney hop bomb. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. About what is standard for the style. Overall this is a good IPA, with a nice pine forward character and a nice high level of bitterness. Well worth trying.

I had it on tap at the brewery and decided to buy a bomber to go for a review. No apparent bottle date, abv. listed on the bottle is 6.1%.

Look- Pours a clear deep amber color with a very generous amount of creamy white foam.

Smell- Pine, grapefruit, floral esters, and malt.

Taste- Pine, bitter grapefruit and caramel malt in the finish. There is a floral quality that takes over as you work through the bottle.

Feel- Oily and quite thick with a bitter dry finish.

Overall- A quality IPA with a good balance of hop bite and malt sweetness. I'll definitely seek this out next time I'm in Arizona.

Another beer obtained at pagosa. Copper color, white head, about 1" deep, not much lacing or retention. Citrus bittery aroma, caramel.

Decent hop flavor, a bit one dimensional, in that it is pretty much just a sweet, slightly dry citrus with a ton of bitterness. No way of knowing if this was fresh or not, the flavor profile makes me think it might not be under 2 months old. The caramel that was noticeable in the nose doesn't do a very good job at soaking up the bitterness.

Was pretty much another ipa in a long list of AZ ipa's that were all middle of the road.

Big off white head slowly settles to a quarter to half inch froth covering a clear light caramel golden colored beer.

Citrus and pine hops aroma come through nicely.

Slight bitter hops coming through in citrusy and light pine hops tasting beer.

A dry slightly bitter dry aftertaste with a bit of the piney and citrus aspects of the taste stinking around with this medium bodied beer.

Pretty good tasting IPA for a six pack cans, usually better IPA's come in bombers or stuff like that.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a dark red almost brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Mild stringy lace. The aroma starts off with some sweet to bitter grassy and piney hops. Light citrusy and floral hops show a light presence over some bready and caramel malts. The flavor brings together all of those previously mentioned aromas to blend. Nice aftertaste of malts to hops. Quick dry piney finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fine sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Appropriate harshness as an AIPA. Overall, good American IPA that I would have again if I could get it.

This beer comes courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, hops. Taste is very hoppy and bitter, not a lot of balance, some fruits are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall if you like bold hoppy beers, you will like this one.
