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.

One of those odd tops--I guess the kind you're allowed to drink out of the can and not be un-beercool? I poured mine into a glass. It's a clear gold color with a finger's worth of head atop it--good lacing as it goes down. The nose is... faint and disappointing. It is pleasantly resinous, hop-wise, but there's not much of it. Good flavor though. The hops tend towards the spicy, and the hop taste comes out a lot more on the tongue. There's also some nice balancing malt--sweet and a little bready, and it never gets lost under the hops (unlike the beer I had just before this). Mouthfeel is a little insubstantial, watery.

Overall, a good beer. Dallas is just awash with good local beer these days.

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.
