Tasted on tap at the Albuquerque location. Light copper color. Crystal clear with great rising bubbles. Head big, fluffy and rock solid. Very little aroma, probably not helped by the narrow mini-Pilsner style taster glass--Indistinct hops and nothing else. Flavors are surprisingly malt-dominated, with white bread over top of pine/citrus hops. Medium body; fluffy carbonation; moderate hops bitterness. No alcohol presence. Beer is decent but not very interesting for an IPA.
I ordered this in a taster flight along with Piranha Pale Ale and I wonder if my server mixed them up on the placemat. The bitterness on this one appears lower than the pale, but there's no way to tell which is which. With
