Can poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy light tan head that settles to a firm layer and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Pine and grapefruit, bready malt, and a littlle sweetness.

T: Pine, citrus, grapefruit zest, a little lemon and orange, bready malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Good old school IPA. Maybe not super special, but nicely balanced and well executed.

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.

Had on tap at Brews and Cues in Flagstaff.

L: Pours a clear amber color. Off-white head.

S: Pines and citrus hops.

T/F: Mild malts with a pretty aggressive hop profile. High IBU (90) for the ABV which makes it seem a bit thin. Solid carbonation and very sessionable.

O: An above average IPA with a solid hop profile. One I could drink a few of.

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.

This beer reminds me of flagstaff. It is cool, refreshing, wit some bold, but smooth citrus/melon tasting hops. The best way to drink this beer is on draft. Golden amber color, slight caramel flavor. Slight, frothy head. It has a skunky, danka smell too that reminds me of Flagstaff. Cheers.

12oz can flown back from Phoenix in my suitcase. If there's a date, I don't see it. Served in a snifter.

Pours clear golden with a slight bronze hue, moderate head, medium carbonation. Head fades to small at a medium pace, and then stalls there. Smell is nice, piney and juicy, fresh and bright.

Taste is light on the juicy brightness, and strong on the piney bitterness. Nice refreshing beer on a hot day, interesting and good. Definitely better than a lot of IPAs.

Mouthfeel is smooth and nice. Overall, surprisingly solid beer. I haven't been that impressed with most AZ beers.
