Notes/Commercial Description:
Houston is a BIG city. And we think it deserves a BIG beer. Most people are familiar with India Pale Ales and West Coast IPAs, but now it's our turn to brand that cattle. And that cattle's name is Hopston. This hoppy brew is approachable and balanced; enjoyable year round and perfectly suited for the hot Texas summer. You're welcome and, yes, you may have another.

This had a pretty terrible aroma. It was funky and not what I would want in an IPA. The taste was decent, but it still was not on par. I have had a few really great beers by 8th Wonder (Coffee Mocha Alt & Rocket Fuel), but this does not hold up to what one would expect from them.

Had this brew on tap at Petrol Station (awesome bar) in Houston.

A: Great clarity with an equally nice head. Left behind perfect lacing. More of a traditional English style PA with its reddish amber color.

S: Great citrusy grapefruit aroma, definitely heavy dry hop. Also has a nice maltiness as well, which even for a hop head can be nice at times.

T: Very balanced IPA. Nice malty backbone that finishes bitter. Not so much your traditional West Coast IPA, but again more like an Red Coat IPA. Nice late addition citrusy hops balanced nicely with the dry hop.

MF: Great carbonation, finished smooth with good bitterness. Super drinkable but the bitterness will sneak up on you!
