Every time I'm astonishing myself with:

!) having purchased a sixteen dollar six-pack
&2) sipping on this well-earnt beverage

I can't stop but think: god damn, this is a fantastic fucking product. World Class, emblazoned within this skull as probably the best beer I can readily-purchase here in Texas.

Nothing like it, true story, would break the bottle open and risk cutting my tongue . . . to lick dropped brewskee.

12oz. can poured into a hotel tumbler.

Appearance: Bright golden yellow with a nice 1" head that hangs around with sticky lacing.

Smell: Floral hops and citrus, nicely refreshing.

Taste: As in the nose citrus dominant, mostly grapefruit, floral hops. Flavorful IPA, grapefruit citrus balanced well against a malt backbone. Like the freshness and how the can helps keep out any adverse impact form light.

Mouthfeel: Extremely clean, smooth and refreshing.

Overall: Another very sessionable and well constructed IPA, really nice warm summer afternoon beer.
