Canned April 23, 2013.
Pours out a burnt orange with a dissipating white head. Excessive (for my tastes) yeast suspends in the glass. Smells of citrus oil, sugary dough, and mild alcohol. Upfront hop flavor of grapefruit and orange is initially pleasing, but is followed by a heavy sweetness and leads into an excellent bitter finish. Finishes sticky and dry with bitterness lingering on the tongue. Mouthfeel is slick with medium carbonation.
This is an IPA on the maltier/sweeter side, but with a nice hop profile and accessible packaging it is a solid beer. Not amazing, but a good local product.

On tap at Christian's Tailgate in Houston.
The beer pours an orange color with a large, creamy, long-lasting white head. The aroma is full of toffee and orange citrus notes, with the two appearing pretty much in balance. A little maltier than I like in an IPA, but still nice.
The flavor is more hoppy than the aroma. I get a lot of pine and orange citrus notes, as well as some biscuit malt which keeps the beer from being too bitter. The hops and malt are well balanced, but the hop flavor still does a good job of coming through and standing out.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I am trying the Hopadillo during an unplanned layover in Houston at Ruby's diner in Terminal E. The beer has poured a clear copper amber with thin white head that is leaving a nice lacing. The scent carries fresh hop that is leaning toward bitter than what is traditionally expected fro American IPAs. The taste is bitter through the drink, but not to the point where ira undrinkable. There is enough malt to balance the beer making it sessionable. In addition a bitter citrus, grapefruit, is present. The mouthfeel is medium body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a very drinkable ipa.
