The beer pours a clear dark yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of piney and grassy hops. The flavor is pine hops as well as some citrus and some grainy notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad IPA, but nothing really stands out that makes me want to try it again.

Light copper with the right amount of caramel malt. This is a malt forward IPA but with the dank that a great American IPA should have. Nice nose with hops other than Cascade and Citra like everyone else is using these days. I dig it. Perfect ABV for an American IPA.

Bottled.
Nice mouth feel...poured with 1" of head.. End taste a bit caramel overtones. Not very hoppy.

Absolutely delicious ipa! Smell immediately gets you excited to drink the beer. Once it hits the palate, it has a hoppy yet smooth taste with creaminess. Delicious, deliciius , delicious! Fortunately, I live just down the road from Austin so I will have access to this beer. If you truly enjoy hoppy, creamy, amazing ipa's this is the beer to go with. Awesome!!!

Welcome extra courtesy of lnashsig (thanks!). Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Very cloudy gradient of Persian-Orange to Pink-Orange topped by a lasting dense finger of papaya whip merengue. Heavy soapy lacing. Superior retention.

Faint biscuity malt aroma with a hint of orange marmalade; otherwise not much in the nose.

Bread crusts, white pepper, and thyme on the palate - moderately bitter though the breadiness negates the hops in the finish to some degree. Very earthy somewhat spicy, but surprisingly little fruit or bite throughout.

Well carbonated, soft, pillowy, and not-quite-medium bodied.

Most hop-heads will probably find this to be too malt-forward, but I enjoyed it anyway, and think it would pair well with low-and-slow smokey bbq among other things.

Had a bottle from Whole Foods. The body is a bit thin and the flavor is simple. It is at least a clean beer, unlike the Austin Amber (diacetyl bomb). There's a clear grapefruit juice taste with more herbal citrus rind, but that's about it. It's drinkable and bitter, but not terribly fun to drink.
