Draft service into a nonic at Lumberyard brewpub in Flagstaff.

A: Clear, light amber color with a partial surface residue of white bubbles. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Weak hop aromatics suggest herbaceous spice. Otherwise aromas are very clean, even uninteresting, with little evidence of grain detected.

T: Begins dry, with herbaceous hop aromatics and lesser toasted malt. Acidity is restrained, although bitterness builds, into the middle where hop flavors become more floral. More toasted malt accompanies green herbaceous bitterness in the finish.

M: Thin viscosity, slightly sticky on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: Fairly easy to gulp down, but only mediocre when placed amongst the field of modern IPAs. Bitterness is emphasized over more appealing dry-hopped qualities, making this recipe smell and taste dated.

Pale copper, bright clarity. The white foam is almost two fingers in thickness and it holds amazingly considering I can see almost no carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is a bit underwhelming. Light pine-like hop character with a tangy caramel malt edge. There's not enough forcefulness from the hops.

The taste is exactly what I expected from the smell. Very one-dimensional hop flavor. The caramel malt is a bit dry and the finish has a moderate tangy bitterness. The carbonation is definitely too low on this and it hurts the overall flavor.

I was disappointed considering I really loved the draft version of this brew. This tasted completely different. Of course there is no freshness dating, so age could be a factor, but we just started getting this beer available in bottles in Tucson within the past few weeks. Unfortunately it's just another Arizona beer that doesn't make the grade.

Amber color with caramel highlights, this one produces an inch of head that quickly fades. Caramel and bittering hops in the aroma.

The usual 90s caramel and c hop ipa. Lots of bitterness, not a ton of hop flavor beyond the contribution of bitterness. Caramel is helpful and in the right proportion one would think but it didn't do as well hiding alcohol and bitterness as one would hope.

About as average as they come.

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.
