Another CAN courtesy of the wondrous JenRay! It is nice to have sources for CANs and I hope that my latest box to her was to her liking.
From the CAN: "Brewed In Texas"; "Please Remain Calm"; "Proudly Brewed In Texas"; "Cuidado [-] He lurks in the shadows, waiting in bold anticipation. He's surprisingly bitter. Bitter about something. Legend has it that he feasts on those with fresh hops coursing through their veins. This dry hopped, Texas IPA has a flavor as defiant as the Hopadillo himself. It's packed with the bracing bitterness of hops from around the world that this creature craves. He's comin' to get ya. You've been warned."
The Crack revealed another brimful craft CAN and so an inverted Glug was in order. The room suddenly smelled heavily of grapefruit and my mouth began to water. My pour resulted in two fingers of rocky, tawny head with decent retention. As I patiently allowed it to fall, sticky lacing began to appear. Color was amber with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was medium with a definite citrus hop bite on the tongue. I liked that they did not saturate the beer with hops to the point that it takes on a grainy quality. It was that intense on the tongue, however. Finish was dry and bitter, just the way I like my AIPAs. Hell, I did not need to be warned about this guy - he and I got along just fine, thank you.

Another beer from a big box provided by woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of piney hops. Taste is hops, pine, some citrus and malts. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking IPA.
