not a bad brew, but its most interesting aspect is its packaging. a can i have never seen before, a pop top peel back that lets the whole lid come off. the nose that way can get a lot more activity when guzzling from the can, very cool design. the beer itself is a sturdy one. they call this a session ale project or something, which i think is absurd for this abv, unless of course your day starts at noon and ends at 6pm, then its an all day beer. for those of us with more regular hours, its a bit much for all day consumption at almost 8% abv. caramel malt balances rugged american hops, maybe simcoe or centennial, it has that high resin woody flavor to it in the finish, very pine family, very bitter, but very well built. bright carbonation makes it drink pretty easy for a big ipa, but the hops stay on the palate after the swallow, and the booze is only thinly veiled, making it less nice as it warms. getting filling too. a bit generic, but well enough made. i havent had much beer from dallas, so this was a treat.

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

Yellowed white head and a clear orange body. Leaves some lacing and good head retention.

Orange, caramel, floral, and pine aroma.

Bigger pine on the flavor. Lots of caramel malt and orange hop.

Fairly smooth medium bodied. Fairly bitter from those 72 ibu's. Finishes a little dry.

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

A: pours a translucid orange to golden orange in color, great big white fluffy head that slowly retreats leaving a nice sticky lace behind. No carbonation.

S: aromas are piney, resinous, band-aids with a grapefruit zest. Tropical rainforest with some cedar notes.

T: nice wooden bite, slightly alcoholic and medicinal. No esters were noticeable.

M: chalky and arid are present at the front palate while some chewiness and stickiness develope as it lingers down your throat.

O: an above average IPA with an excellent canning format (360 lid) turns this beer into an inmediate go-to for any outdoor activity. Very enjoyable, although the initial presentation to the palate can be improved, this shows a great ingredient combination and execution for a brewery which barely went into market.
