look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Appearance - A light golden color with a head that explodes out of the cans. Really good clarity, no haze at all.

Smell - Smells pleasant with grapefruit undertones and some floral sweetness. Not a very strong smell.

Taste - It tastes hoppy without being too bitter. The malt body is too light but on the same token the hops did not get to shine enough. More of a light-bodied pale ale taste. Just comes off as not very exciting. Floral and grapefruit tastes take center stage.

Mouthfeel - A lot of carbonation leaves when the beer is poured, leaving the beer itself too watery.

A pint at Red's Porch on 9/20/11

Clear, yellow with a short lived head and no lace. Very muted aroma of fruit. East coast IPA style flavor. Earthy hops and some grain. Medium body and carbonation. Good but not great IPA. An admirable product from a fledgling brewery in a town not know for its beer.

Serving type: on-tap

12 oz can pours a fairly clear, dark gold color with a bubbly white head. Nice lacing.

Nose is juicy, resinous, tropical and piney hops. Caramel maltiness is there, doing a bit of backseat driving along with a whiff or two of nutty yeast.

Earthy malt and nuttiness adds a unique perspective on the IPA style. The hops are not as bright and juicy as the nose would indicate, but the resiny bitterness is still there aplenty. Something about the malts does not jive with me...too earthy, peat-like almost. The love-child of a menage-a-trois between an East Coast IPA, heavy rye beer and an English bitter. Im a little disappointed in this after having the most excellent Pearl Snap Pilsner, but I can see this having appeal to plenty of folks...just not me. I prefer a much cleaner, citrusy/tropical hop-flavor heavy brew in my IPAs.

A: Light orange color with 2 finger head. Lots of lacing.

S: All I smell are lemon and pine. It almost smells like a lemon dishwasher.

T: Pine. Orange. Finishes bitter, but the taste doesn't linger too much (which is a good thing in this case). Not my type of IPA. Little bit malt near the end but ends quickly.

M: Good amount of carbonation, light to medium body. Decent!

O: I thought this was an okay IPA. Certainly not my favorite type of IPA (too much hops vs balance). Mouthfeel was good, which makes this beer much more drinkable than it tastes.

Served into a Southern Star tulip.

A: 2 fingers of off white head, reddish-orange and yellow with some transparency. 4.0

S: Ohh. Nice hoppy and pine smell with a little malty undertones. Citrus / orange / lemon seem muddled, but there. 4.0

T: Ouch. Hoped for more. Malty out the gate, hops are bitter and not citrus-y as the smell would lead you to believe. 3.0

M: Creamier than anticipated with average carbonation, but the creaminess is what is contributing to the domination of the malts (or maybe vice versa?). 3.0

O: Had such potential from the initial pour, but just doesn't come close to others in the same class. Average. 3.0

Thanks to wagenvolks for this one

Look: Murky orange in color with a 1/4 inch white head and no retention

Smell: Floral hops, floral hops, and more floral hops that is followed up with a bit or orange zest and lemon

Taste: Earthy and soil notes more than likey from the hops used and it has a bit of funk to it. Not much else honestly

Mouthfeel: Light body and high carbonation and a bit dry

Overall: Not that great not that bad just kind of blah

S - Bready malts and ripe oranges.

T - Bitter grass, malts, oranges.

D - Light body with lower carbonation.

O - Malty and maybe a bit old due to the flavors that I am getting. Glad to be able to try it.

12oz can poured into pint glass. Another thanks to SSW117 for sending this.

A- Pours a translucent brownish golden with about a half finger of white head that quickly recedes to a thin layer. Decent carbonation, leaves some carbonation.

S- Light citrus hops with a tiny bit of pine, oranges, bready malts, and spices, below average aroma strength for an IPA.

T- Light citrus hops mixed with bready malts, spices, a little bit of caramel, finishes with bready malts.

M- Medium bodied, average carbonation, easy to drink.

O- This IPA definitely had a lot more bready malts then I was expecting with a light citrus hop taste. The citrus hops were more dominant when I first opened the can, but faded fairly fast. This was an average IPA that was easy to drink, but nothing in it particularly stood out. Glad I got to try it though, thanks again Sam!

Picked up a six-pack of 12 oz cans at Whip In in Austin. This is a drinkable IPA, but nothing about its smell, taste or mouthfeel is particularly notable. Oh, I'll happily imbibe the rest of the six-pack, but with so many other IPAs to try, I doubt I'll be seeking this out in the future.
