12oz : tulip
bottled on 12/12/12

Clear, bright copper with a thick, foamy off white head and nice lacing.

Bright citrus, piney hops.

Citric, grapefruit hops with a lightly sweet, toasty malt backing.

Medium+ body with foamy carbonation.

A well done IPA. For whatever reason I always passed this one up when buying beer, but I am quite happy that I finally decided to pick it up. Something I would purchase again.

Had this one on tap at Homefield Grill in Round Rock...got a free Firestone Walker pint glass to boot!

Slightly hazy pale orange with a one finger thing white head. Retention was decent and there was a bit of spider web lacing.

Getting a ton of grapefruit, citrus, and tropical hop aromas. There's a bit of sugary malt as well, but the fresh hops dominate. Smells incredible.

Taste follows scent perfectly. Fresh grapefruit balances well with the sweet biscuity malt. A bit of a sticky feel too... medium carbonation...almost feels more like a DIPA. The finish is long bitter and very dry. Easily one of the best IPA's I've ever had.

So very thankful to have this one in Texas. It will be a staple of mine.

A - pours a crystal clear vibrant orange. A heavy handed pour results in over three fingers of thick bubbly white foam. Decent retention but does fade to a bit of film and a thin white ring around the glass.

S - the nose is bright, fruity and herbaceous. Lots of sweet citrus mostly bitter orange peel with a touch of grapefruit pith. Hints of grass and pine as well as a sort of stalky vegetal character. All come together on a sweet honeysuckle malt character.

T - sweet honeyed malt character. Crisp citrus flavors in the center, mostly orange pulp. Leafy greens. Snappy grapefruit rind bitterness on the backend of the palate along with a touch of pine.

M - medium bodied. Medium carb.

O - an excellent india pale ale. Delicously balanced even though it is essentially a hop bomb.
