3.71/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

A tall can because everything's bigger in Texas! Pours clear copper red with a creamy tan head. The smell is floral hops with a caramel undertone, sort of a souped up pale ale. Taste is sharp, definitely hop dominant. The hops are a bit piney and the finish is dry and sharp. This thing is like a knife covered in razor blades. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy, nice "heft" to it. All in all, I like this. It's a bit rough around the edges and a bit one dimensional, but it manages to soften things up a bit with the malt and the alcohol warmth. Its a good beer for a spring day, so who am I to argue?

great beer overall.

initial taste is very smooth with piney hops and a citrus grapefruit aftertaste.

with it's high alcohol content, it is a very unsuspecting beer.

12 dollars will buy you a 4 pack of 16oz cans. at first I was very skeptical, but after my first taste I could immediately detect high quality ingredients as well as a lot of hard work put into a very well thought out beer. I will definitely be drinking this beer more often.
