Served in an Imperial pint glass at B.D. Riley's in Austin. This is a heavily hopped IPA. It was nice that I was warned about the hippiness, it is very bold and hop forward. A good solid hopped IPA but only a single pint beer, then the taste buds need a rest!

On a rusty afternoon, hands covered on the spices of hatch, Dortmund rolling the ball, this brew entertains me. Ruby, staring back at me, waiting for the connection, sending me messages of cherry, honey, flowers. Then... It happens. I taste sweet bitterness. Everything an I.P.A. Has to offer and then some. Everything I smelled is there. But in a language my taste buds understand. Apricot, chillin with me. Smooth, nice, I dig it.
