4.66/5 rDev +44.7%
The appearance is a darker umber ale that is moderately cloudy with a very little tan head that is thick, settles slow and leaves delicate lacing down the glass.
The nose is floral and sharp with some tangy citrus, pine and grass notes that are well blended and the sweet fructose nose.
The taste is rich malt that is well balanced between fruity and dry, There is a nice hop bitter that has notes of apples, citrus, raisins, pine and that fades to a nice bitter finish.
The mouthfeel is just the right richness for a good IPA such as this.
Overall this is an exceptionally good IPA. I highly recommend it and will definitely be drinking it again,.

Pours cloudy amber color with thin foamy head. Slight lacing on side of glass. There appears to be sediment, so I assume this is an unfiltered beer. Has an apple and piney smell. As far as taste goes, though, there appears to be more grass/pine with strong hop forward presentation. Strong bitter, hoppy aftertaste. It is an IPA I would drink again, but I wouldn't search out. Too much of a grassy taste. The hops would be better balanced with more malt.

Pours out hazy, murky and in between brown and orange. With the high abv and dark coloration I'd say this is closer to Barleywine/Double IPA territory than just IPA. Smells primarily of caramel and sugar, and some citrus hops. Citrus bitterness upfront which is quickly masked by a heavy blanket of sweet and caramel. This beer touts 99 IBU's, but is quick to mask them after a brief appearance upfront. Low carbonation, heavy body. This seems very one note, and unfortunately as an IPA that note isn't the hops. No complexity. The challenge for me was finishing this beer. Another heavily malted Texas IPA.

I am a hop head, but this beer just doesn't live up to the name. There is not a lot to be excited about with this IPA. The 99 IBU is fine, but there is no complexity. It's drinkable, but that's as far as I can go.
A-Aggressive pour yielded frothy head. Cloudy apricot color with slight lacing.
S-99 IBU, it smell like citrus.
T-Hops, hops, and more hops. Aftertaste is just typical bitter and dry for the style.
O-This is a very average IPA with no character, no complexity.
I bought a sixer. so 4 more to go. Would probably not buy again, but it isn't a horrible beer. There are just better local brews of this style in our area. Hopefully FB will use this feedback and go back to the wood shed and try to improve on this beer.
