Had this on tap, next to two other IPAs. This was my clear winner.

A: Brilliantly clear light copper color. Light head with medium
lacing.

S: Fantastic citrus/floral aroma with and a faintly sweet maltiness.

T: Bitterness perfectly balanced by the malt, followed by pure hop
flavor and a clean, dry finish.

M: Nicely carbonated, full-bodied but a dry finish. Perfect.

O: My only complaint is I'd like to see a fluffier head with better
lacing. That's a minor gripe though. My new favorite local IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

Drank it directly from the can! I love how some of the Texas Micros are going this route.

Great deep golden with crisp clarity. Good amount of head retention but not overly thick.

Smell of bright hops. Almost like they just dry hopped it. Good balance of biscuit and citrus/floral hops.

Clean drinking IPA. Smooth and not overly thick on the palate. Bold hop presence with out a long bittering tail on the taste buds. I can drink this all day.

This is a great offering from a young Texas brewery. A very tasty IPA with a long standing drinkability. Can't wait to try out their other offerings. Great job guys!

Retro-looking can into a Jester King snifter.

Nice appearance, with a bright, brassy-gold body that shows good clarity. The spittle-colored head doesn't show the best retention, but leaves some sticky lace on the glass. Not surprised by the hoppy aroma, which hints at fresh-cut grass, orange zest, and pine sap. Pale malts add a hint of doughy bread.

Very juicy, very hop flavor-forward IPA. Malts lay down a solid backing of bread crust and graininess while the hops steal the show, dripping with tropical fruit and pine. Masked bitterness and a touch of mineral water in the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and nicely carbonated with a medium-light body. All in all, an very drinkable brew from an up-and-coming Austin brewery. Glad to have ABW on the scene!

I am excited to have another Texas IPA that we can get on the shelves. With the FireEagle, I'd say this is the best packaged Texas IPA on the market now.

Appearance - dark copper

Smell - Opening the can and pouring release a huge burst of citrus hop.

Taste - lots of hop complexity. You can tell this was brewed with 4 hops. Even with all the hops though, it finishes clean and dry making it easy to have a few of these.

Great job from a new brewery. Keep it coming.

12 oz. can poured into a CBC pint glass. Much thanks to htomsirveaux for fostering my nascent ticking habit. Reviewed from notes.

As single IPAs go, this is definitely on the darker side. Deep auburn like an amber ale, with very attractive clarity. A quarter-finger white head recedes rather quickly, but the lacing is pretty.

I'll fess up: in my notes on this beer, I used the word "dank" to describe the aroma. An absolute hop bomb, I really wasn't expecting this. Tons of resiny, piney hops in the mix, clean and fresh. The smell is both grassy and citrusy sweet. There is some malt in the mix, but it takes a backseat here.

As expected, this is one hop-forward IPA. Almost brutally bitter, to the point that the hop bitterness overwhelms some of the underlying grapefruit and other citrus flavors. The lasting bitterness in this beer is pretty similar to that of very fresh Stone Ruination.

The feel is great: crisp, full-bodied and very easy to drink. The carbonation is spot-on in this beer.

A total surprise for me, and one that I'm still thinking about a day later. I generally prefer more citrus fruit sweetness in IPAs, but I can respect extreme hop bitterness when it's done well. I'll be trading for more beers from Austin Beerworks soon.

4.3/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color. A two finger well formed white head rises with excellent retention. Light lace is left behind.
S: Just a great hoppy aroma. First, I get fresh cut grass and white pepper. Lemons, and orange peal. Other tropical fruits like pineapple. Light toasted grains balances everything out perfectly towards the end.
T: Follows the nose with grassy hops at first. A spicy/peppery flavor. Lots of fruit flavors come out next. Lemon, orange, pineapple. A bit more bitterness lingers than in the nose. Not a complaint because it is still balanced nicely with toasted grains.
M/D: A medium body and great carbonation. So crisp, clean, dry, and refreshing. So easy to drink. All day with this.

Another hit from Austin Beerworks. Everything they make has the great crisp bite to it that makes it so enjoyable to drink. I am not a hop head at all, but this is a great IPA.
