This is a fascinating beer. I featured it on an episode of Locapour shot at Craft Pride in Austin. Watch the episode to experience it in full depth: http://locapour.tv/austin/austinbeerworkshalfipa

I call this beer fascinating because it presents on the front of the palate as a nice fresh pale ale but finishes with an almost musky taste that reminds me of sweat and working in a factory. Sounds weird I know but that's why I referred to it as a manly beer. You'll feel like doing manly stuff as soon as you start drinking it.

If you are looking for a new kind of summer beer I'd say give the Half IPA a go.

It’s a more quaff-able IPA with an assertive hop flavor and full hop aroma. The Half IPA poured a crystal clear golden yellow with a substantial white head which made it appear very crisp and vibrant. The aroma was of dank and fruity hops that were strong and thick. The hop flavors are all upfront with some dank flavors a hint of citrus and tropical fruits that quickly fade and leave a light impression on our palate. For a Half IPA it takes you on a surprisingly deep hop ride from the aroma to the taste but stayed light on the palate hence a Half IPA.
