12oz can poured into a shaker fake pint glass.

L: A rich gold, with some bits of suspended yeast scattered throughout it.

S: Grapefruit and orange, faint hints of tropical fruit.

T: Piney bitterness, grapefruit pith, finishing with a light orange sweetness

F: Surprisingly thick and creamy, nice carbonation.

O: A tasty, drinkable IPA. Nothing special, but it sure beats the draft Bud Light that was the alternative.

Clear dark orange body and a off white head.

Orange, grapefruit, floral hop aroma.

Nice hit of bitterness giving way to the hop flavors and ending with bready malt.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #73 (Feb 2013):

At ~70 IBU and brewed with a combination of American, English and German hops (German Magnum, Chinook, Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe, East Kent Goldings), this is a very different IPA. Don’t expect this to be a typical American IPA, as the range of hop flavours runs the gamut, which might be too much for some. Nonetheless, this is an interesting hop bomb of complex flavors.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 6.6%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Bright, dark amber, thick foamy head

SMELL: Pine, resin, lemongrass, grain

TASTE: Smooth, viscous, sweet, caramel, cereal grains, earthy, leafy, resiny, oily, citrusy, piney, spicy, astringent, dry, ashy

A weak IPA or a strong PA. Much more bitter and less friendly than, say, Sierra Nevada Pale, but nowhere near a dogfish 90. I would rate it higher, but the hop notes are very floral and the finish isn't clean.

Sent to me by my son in Texas, it was brewed on 10/09/14 and consumed on 12/05/14. It's dry hopped, and called a 'Texas IPA' on the can. Poured nicely with a relatively small head that did last, with plenty of lacing. Had a pine forest aroma, very pleasant. First sip yielded some fresh grapefruit flavor that was lively and embracing, followed by the pine resin hoppy taste. There was some mild bitterness as I swallowed, followed by a clean finish. If this is what Texas IPAs are about, give me more!
