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.

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.
