This pours a semi cloudy golden color with a nice orange tint to it with a nice white head that is short, long lived and leaves pure lace down the glass.

The nose is a nice pine and grass with hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, pepper, some bread notes are there as well.

The taste is nice dry malt with a well balanced hopping throughout the taste experience. There are some notes of oranges, pine, fructose and vanilla.

The moutfeel is just right for this and delivers the complexity across the palate.

Overall this one is exceptionally good and definitely drinkable. I highly recommend it.

16 oz tallboy pours a mildly hazed gold color with a large cap of craggy off-white head. Retention is good and lace sufficient.

Nose is really nice, I wasnt expecting this good of a hop aroma to be honest. Hops lean towards the citric and tropical end of the spectrum. There is a biscuity malt in there that keeps things from being one-sidedly hoppy.

Taste has alot to offer - saltine cracker light maltiness with maybe a bit of bread dough. The hops are deftly done indeed, it flows perfectly from a nice little grapefruit flesh bite at the beginning and is finished clean without a harsh bitterness. Mouthfeel is great, I was a littel worried it was overcarbonated after the pour, but it is just fine, smooth and densely creamy. I was a little hesitant to pull the trigger on this 4-pack for 8 bucks, but am very glad I did and will buy more in the future. Recommended.

Tall boy can with some text about American hops, Alt yeast, grapefruit, and other words. No date noted, which is a minus, but it's obviously new to the scene, and I know getting date codes going is work (but worth it!).

Appearance: Yellow amber beer with great clarity, nice combo of enough color and transparent; a good sign. Holds a solid finger of frothy white head that sticks to the glass. Ain't hard on the eyes. After a good long while the head drops to a thin cover with a sticky halo.

Smell: Citric hop cones, not a lot, but what's there is nice. Slight mineral water note, really mild nose, nothing off.

Taste: The yeast speaks German, the hops speak 'merican. They seem to get along but it's a confusing conversation. The yeast has a bit of a bite, and the hops are just enough to bring the package to a balance. Nothing super sweet going, noting bitter, which really just leaves the yeast, and water for that matter. Very quenching, great summer / lawnmower beer.

Mouthfeel: A bit light and fizzy, frothy actually. Slight prickle of carbonation, pretty watery finish.

Overall: A nice Pale, and a very good sign from a new Texas brewery. Nowhere to hide any mistakes with this beer, and there's not a flaw to be found. A testament to the skill of the brewer(s). Has me eager to try their other offerings.

Poured from a 16 ounce tallboy can, this beer is orange/yellow in color with a cloudy body and a nose that is distinctly citrus- like with some tropical notes. The aroma is certainly enticing, as those fruity esters make you want to tip that glass and take a big gulp.

This pale ale has a flavor that pretty much follows from its nose. It is a fruit- accented beer with flavors of citrus mixed with tropical fruit for a fruit cocktail experience if there ever was one. But there are other flavors to enjoy besides fruit. The taste of bread/dough and biscuit malt is also present and the beer finishes with a softer, fruitier flavor as opposed to the spicier, bitter, hop- accented flavors common to other pale ale.

This is an interesting pale ale and not like I expected, but in a positive way. The taste is fruitier and more refreshing than the average pale ale and its less bitter profile means it will be acceptable to most anyone who tries it. Even non- fans of pale ale will probably like this beer and with its softer, more easy- going personality, it is definitely a pale ale worth trying and worth serving at your next social gathering.
