Pours to a permanent white had and minimal lacing. Hazy orange-amber color. Arom ais very hop forward, with citrus, spice and Christmas Tree and a little honey/caramel in the background. Flavor is intensely hoppy with a sweet malt backdrop and fruity esters. Mouthfeel is heavy for style but good. Overall, a great APA from Texas' weird town.

Can poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a hazy orange with a finger of bright white but loose head. Head dissipates after a few minutes, leaving some sticky patchy lacing. Good carbonation visible at the edge of the glass, tiny bubbles floating upward at a good clip.

Nose is mild but sweet tropical hops, mango and peach, with a biscuit and caramel malt accent. Not super aromatic, but smells pretty good.

Toasty biscuit malts flavors first, some mild tropical mango, grassy and pine hops. Light bitterness and slightly metallic tang in an otherwise clean finish.

Light body with soft but ample carbonation. Easy to drink and refreshing. Flavors and aroma don't blow you away, but a good session beer for sure.
