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.

On tap at Downhouse in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a burnt copper/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Burnt caramel malts. A nice sweetness before the dryness of the hops. Big piney hops with a bitter finish.
T: Follows the nose. The malts are very sweet up front. Burnt sugars and wood even. Lots of hops come next that are slightly soapy. Piney and bitter with a long finish.
M/D: A medium body and good carbonation. Stick and soapy. Easy to drink for the hop heads. I enjoyed my pint without a problem, and could have ordered another.

A nice IPA. I am not a huge fan of the burnt sugar like flavors, and the hops come in a bit abrasive for my tastes. Though a good stab at the style.
