3.53/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

On tap a few times at D&T in Houston.

A: Pours beautiful hazed golden/orange color. A two finger white head forms with excellent retention and lace.
S: Up front is a nice malt character. Light toasted malts and caramel sweetness. That quickly fades to buttery diacetyl. After the initial sweet/buttery malt aroma, the hops hit big. Pineapple, orange rind, passion fruits. Big fruity hops, with a lingering piny bitterness.
T: Like the nose, lightly toasted and sweet caramel malts up front for a second. Buttery diacetyl is more apparent however. Then, again, the big hop bite. Fruity hops like pineapple, orange, lemon. A lingering bitterness.
M/D: A medium body with a crisp effervescent bite. Not as dry as I would like it, but still nice. Easy to drink for the most part. I have had this on several different occasions.

After several different tries, I do get a persistent buttery diacetyl character that is pretty consistent. Enough for me to be a little annoyed, but the big hop character kicks in to take over. Maybe I am just to sensitive to diacetyl, but it is there for me. It does not entirely kill the beer, just not something I will reach for often. First batch Lily & Seamus (subsequent batches have been almost bad), and Yellow Rose are still the best they have done.

Pours folden colored. Slightly hazy. Very small head with almost no retention. Moderate lacing. Very fruity, ester aroma (peach) with hints of butterscotch. Tropical fruity, malty taste up front. Seems peachy as well. Buttery, hoppy taste on the end. Bitter aftertaste persists at. Very different tupe of IPA. Kudos on being unique. Not sure what to think of it though.
