This beer is among the TOP DIPA's out there. WOW I hope they make this again. Dry hopped with simcoe and citra and it comes through in the nose. A ton of hop flavor without a ton of bitterness. Just the way I like all my IPA's HOMERUN ABW! Too bad this stuff flew off shelves in meer hours

Thanks, wagenvolks and xpimptastikx!
I'm not going to write a long review because I'm just going to kick my feet up and enjoy this fantastic DIPA. Without a doubt, the best DIPA I've had from the Midwest/South/Texas...whatever you want to call it. This stuff is super tasty and smells just as good: tons of grapefruit, pine, big bitterness, but really drinkable. I love this beer!

Poured from the can, into a Imperial pint glass.
A - Pours a somewhat murky copper, with a 1-finger head, with great retention.
Each sip leaves huge amounts of feathery lacing on the glass, marking the level of where your beer was before the last sip. Great looking stuff!
S - Light nips of Mango, apricot, and lime pith, chased by bright hints of warming alcohol. The malt takes a back seat to the zippyness of the hops, but isn't completely out of the picture. A light, bready quality emerges as the beer warms up. HUZZAH!
T - A kiss of dried grapefruit greets the palate, as well as the familiar notes of apricot and mango. The dry malt-flavors compliment the slightly bitter hop-profile as well. This beer is complex, and somewhat creamy, in a way... kind of a head-scratcher. But I like it, so there's that, I suppose.
M - As mentioned above, creamy, with a bright acidity that helps to push the flavors across the palate, and a good bit of warming alcohol to boot. If you like Ruination, or 90-Minute, this beer is for you!
O - Not my favorite DIPA, but undoubtably a good one. If you can get your hands on one, grab it NOW. If not, I feel bad for you son, I got 30 beers in my fridge, and this IS one...

Poured a nice, golden sunrise orange with a half inch white head. The head dissipates leaving some lacing on the glass. Smells of pine, resin, grapefruit and orange. The taste starts with a piney earthiness, slight citrus fruits, then ends with an intense bitterness. It leaves a nice fruity aftertaste. Medium body and flavorful on the finish. Solid offering from the Lone Star state.

Extra from a trade with Videofrog. Thanks man!
Split the can with a buddy, so poured half into a glass. Nice amber color (it was dark outside in the back so not 100% sure its full appearance). Decent head with some lacing
Smells of musty hops
Taste was kinda sweaty, like my ex's vag (not a bad thing). Kinda lingered for a few.
Mouthfeel was good. Decent oily hops and resin. Good body and carbonation
Overall, not bad, but I've had better DIPAs (and better vag's)
