After hearing good things about this beer, I was seriously let down, and not too happy I had three left. It has a nice delicious dank fruity hop smell. That's where the good ends. I actually tend to prefer an IPA with a mellow malt back bone, and hop forward. This is ridiculous. I didn't realize how crucial that malt was until trying this brew. Did they even put malt in this? The beer has potential, as the hop flavor is nice, but it's so thin and poorly balanced.... and leaves a strange after taste.

16 oz can pours a clear gold color with an ample cap of creamy white head. Nice retention and lacing - a good looking brew.

Nose is juicy tropical fruit and Starburst candy. Aroma is quite hoppy, grains are biscuity in the background.

Taste has lots of starfruit and papaya hop flavor on the front end with a sweet malty middle. Finish is not as dry and bitter as I thought it would be. Experimental hop 05256 is certainly unique and at least as tropical as Amarillo. This is a good beer, I think I like some of Cedar Creek's offerings better, but this one is another solid addition to the lineup. I like what they are doing up there in Seven Points, TX.

This pours a very cloudy golden color with an orange tinge to it.that has a thick and fluffy white head that settles to a bread like bubble pattern and and has good lacing down the glass.

The smell is very rich with a wonderfully complex hop aroma that is tart, fruity and spiced with a variety of pepper, pine and grass with subtler notes of bread, citrus and fruit.

The taste is wonderfully perfect IPA that is rich, malty goodness that has a great bitter start and finish with notes of lemon zest, bread, pine, apples and other fruity notes that are so well balanced with the bitter that the finish is clean and just right.

The mouthfeel is perfect also and rich with out being cloying; Just right.

Overall this is a perfect IPA and will be one I seek out again and again.
