I drink far too much of this stuff when I'm in Houston. Very drinkable and sufficiently tasty.

Appearance: pours an orange color with a 2" head that lasts a while. Mild lace develops.

Smell: orange and floral hops are easily detectable.

Taste: caramel, orange, and a floral hop bitterness is moderate. Very straight forward IPA.

Mouthfeel: very crisp to start, less crisp at the finish. Nicely refreshing.

Overall: an easy drinking IPA that hits the spot.

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.
