Pours yellow golden with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruity, grassy, and some cracker. Flavor was way underwhelming relative to the aroma; cracker and grassy bitterness mostly, a little tropical fruit. Crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, disappointing beer. A friend recommended this one to me and I had high hopes for it. Wouldn't bother with again though.

On tap at D&T Drive In, Houston.

A: Pours a crystal clear and pale straw yellow color. A two finger white head forms, and recedes in a minute. Light lace.
S: Orange and lemon rind. Kind of pithy, and a quick grapefruit bitterness flashes in the end for a second. Nothing lingers.
T: Orange rind and grapefruit bitterness. A cracker and grainy like malt character. Bitterness follows, and fades to nothing in the finish.
M/D: A light body, and not very much carbonation. Dry, but very thin. I wish this was much more effervescent and crisp. Not hard to drink at all. I can put a few away with out a thought.

Don't get me wrong, I like this. Though seems a little ho hum compared to the likes of All Day IPA, and some ultra local beers I have had around Texas (Calma Muerta comes to mind). Still enjoyable for what it is, and I love how more breweries are doing more sessionable beers. Overall, not the best I have had in this niche style, but still worth a try.

On tap at Waddell's

Golden with a sheet of whites. Smells like Citra hops: grapefruit, onion, musk, body odor and some fruits; a touch of grain and biscuit in the back. Flavor is nice and balanced with bitterness and slight sweetness from the malts. The hops are fruity with a bit of B.O. Light bodied with moderately hi carb and a a semi dry finish. Decent beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Leftovers Cafe. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Orange body, mostly clear. Nice white head and some lacing inside the glass.

Smell - Citrus, grapefruit, and a bit of an oniony hop aroma. Simcoe maybe. Some grain.

Taste - Citrus and grapefruit hop. Very grainy. Bitterness builds quickly. Pithy bitterness. Resiny in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light and over bitter. Drinkable for sure, but a little abrasive.

Overall - I'm enjoying all of these session IPAs. Glad to see a return to sensible styles here.
