4.2/5  rDev +4.2%

Hazy copper-amber pour with two finger off-white head with decent retention and nice lacing. Huge tropical citrus nose with hints of grapefruit, pine, and tangerine. Taste follows suit with tons of resiny, citrusy, fresh hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, pine, caramel, mango, and pineapple. The Citra hops really stand out. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a great tangy, bitter hop finish. Was totally not expecting anything from this relatively unknown brewery, but this is a really impressive IPA! Will definitely be checking out more beers from these guys.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub in Plano.

The beer pours an orangish-gold color with a large white head. The aroma has a ton of pine and resinous notes in it. The beer smells great and the aroma reminds me of the best IPAs from the West Coast. After the great aroma, the flavor doesn't disappoint. I get a lot of pine and resin as expected, but there is also a strong pineapple and mango component which goes with the other notes very well. There is a little bit of biscuit malt, but the bitterness is fairly strong. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

The other reviews will tell you what this beer looks like - very typical unfiltered-looking American IPA. The mouthfeel is a bit heavy for an IPA reminding me of Enterprise IPA from Drydock in Aurora Colorado before they dialed in the recipe back when they were in a hallway connected to The Brew Hut.

No single hop note seems to shine although there is plenty of bitterness - I didn't get a lot of citrus or pine but plenty of "dank" as I also find in Modus Hoperendi from Ska. The aroma is fairly light as I've been spoiled by Green Flash however this is by no means a bad beer. If it suffers from anything it is a lack of pronounced identity but perhaps they will find their groove.

Wow - I guess that's a lot of "shout outs" for a review but comparison to mainstays is inevitable in this style.

Can (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, wagenvolks and xpimptastikx!

A tasty IPA from Texas. Somewhat maltier and sweeter than I'm used to, but this is a fine beverage for a scorching hot day--they have them in Texas and we're having our share now in Southern California! Well crafted, easily drinkable, decent passion/tropical fruit hop notes in the aroma and flavor along with moderate bitterness. Crushed the can, easily.
