SanTan Devil's Ale

I had this beer while at the Barrio Cafe located inside the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The beer had a hoppy smell. It was crisp and had a strong bite. It had a strong taste.

It's hoppier than most other IPAs.* I enjoy it, but this genre of beer is not my favorite.**

There's a subtle bitterness in the aftertaste. However, the apparent lack of bitterness could just be from my familiarity with beer. 3:03 PM PT

Upon finishing the beer I rated it 3.9 out of 5 stars. 3:59 PM PT

*I'm confused about my notes. First, they indicated that, prior to this sentence, I didn't know the beer's style. It then seems as if I was able to determine that the beer, perhaps via Google, is an IPA. However, the beer is an American pale ale.
**I also don't understand this comment. I thought I like IPAs.

American Pale Ale | 5.5% ABV | 45 IBU

An American Pale Ale that offers a sinfully crisp taste. Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops provide fiendishly aromatic pine and citrus flavors. Devil’s Ale pairs wonderfully with salmon and pork and goes best with sharp cheeses such as Cheddar and Colby.
