L: murky caramel brown with an amber glow when held up to a light; thick, fluffy head of an inch or more that sticks and laces. this beer puts on a show -- and i love the opaque murkiness.
S: hops AND malt! an awesome balance ... smells as good as anything on the planet. it swings to a very hop-forward aroma, then swings over to a sweet malty biscuit aroma. complex but over the long haul has a great balance.
T: hop forward with a good bitter bite that smooths out with a very sweet, malty finish -- and is VERY complex. you get a different taste each time, always with a hops, alcohol and sweet malt rotating in there. sometimes one takes center stage, then another. without question its the most malty of any of the DIPAs I've tried yet, and I love it!
F: hardly notice anything about it ... good carbonation, good feel, but I must say there doesn't seem to be anything about it that makes it stand out. might just be me.
O: what a brew! I'm very excited that our little Texas brewery is cranking this one out full-time. I'd put it up against Arrogant Bastard, it's that complex and well-constructed. about the only drawback I can find is the fact that you *do* taste the alcohol at times; personally, I'm not a fan of that ... but it's not as in your face as other higher ABV brews, and ultimately, who cares? this beer's so damn good just drink it!
