Riedel tulip

A: Pours a hazy burnt orange amber color. Two full fingers of fluffy off white to light tan head. Sticky lacing.

S: Smells good. Earthy spice. Hop aromas. Some fruit, mange orange and overripe peach.

T: You get a touch of bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Some pine and earthy hops. There is some sweetness from the malt additions. But it's got nice hop character throughout. Dry finish. Lingering hops.

M: Medium bodied.

Always happy to show Texas some love.

Got a buddy to send me some stuff from the brewpub

A: Pours Orange/Brown with a nice bubbly head and good retention

S: Earthy, Yeasty, Pine. A bid subdued for an IPA in terms of something that stands out here.

T: Bready. A bit watery. Nice hop finish.

M: Crisp, but nothing amazing. Flavor builds with each sip but still leaving something to be desired.

D: Easy drinking, sessionable IPA.

From the artwork, I was expecting a bit more flavor from this IPA. I figured that since its dry hopped it would stand out a bit more but it left me hanging a bit. I think I'd like to try this on draft to compare because the other reviews seem to indicate that on tap the taste stands out a bit more.

I think its good, but other Texas IPAs like Stash IPA blows this outta the water. I wouldn't go out of my way for this one.

Not very pils-like in appearance, per the can. Cloudy orange with a solid frothy white head. Smells of tropical fruit, musk, burnt rubber. All hops in the nose. Taste: loads of citrus from the orange and grapefruit spectrum, along with a bit of funky hop. Good bitterness with a bitter-sweet balance. Ends with a lingering bitterness and a dry finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with a moderately weighted body. Excellent. I can't believe this is from TX.

Appearance:
Slightly hazy and a darker burnt orange at first, it clears up after a while and lightens up just a bit to reveal a light burnt orange color with plenty of carbonation inside. The head starts off about two fingers thick and thins out into a light layer of bubbles with some thick lacing.
Smell:
Hops and mild spices mixed in with some grapefruit and floral aromas.
Taste:
The bitterness kicks in as soon as it hits your tongue and gains strength as it hits the corners of your mouth. The sweetness In it comes out around the middle of your tongue. The hops leave a nice lingering flavor well after you swallow.
Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied.
Overall:
Very good overall, the balance is pretty good and it’s a smooth drinker.
