12 oz. can poured into nonic
(no born-on date)

L: yellow, slight cloudiness but can see through it ... perhaps a hint of gold (orange) in it; weak 1/4-inch head of foam that dissipates quickly; keeps a decent collar of foam but there's almost no carbonation running up the column

S: lemon, grain, sour grain ... just a hint of sweet light malt but the lemon and grain overpowers it all; sour grain showing more and more ... hints of creamed corn

T: sweet biscuit/bread malt with a hint of pepper spice ... tons of sweetness; grain; taste is much sweeter than the smell ... there's no sour here

F: quite solid for a brew that looks half flat ... tons of carbonation, and a solid weight ... not watery; super drinkable

O: as i've worked through a six-pack, this one is growing on me. some of the new cream ales are almost sickly sweet and taste only like creamed corn -- they aren't undrinkable, but this seems to have just a pinch of some german/noble hops that is giving just a teeny spicy/black-pepper hop bite to help it balance. not a bad brew at all. (1,059 characters)

Had on tap at Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek. This was the first time I've seen Infamous on a menu in Austin. Hijack was listed in their printed menu, though, so it looks to be a standard offering. Served in a pint glass: fairly clear, lawnmower-yellow color with a small amount of head.

The nose is a little subdued. I smell a little lemony citrus coming through, but mostly the kind of grainy aroma I associate with pilsners. The latter observation soon became a theme for Hijack--it reminds me of a pilsner as much of a cream ale. I just drank Genny Cream Ale yesterday, so I'm looking for the same sweetness in Hijack but not finding it. Instead, bready/grainy flavors combined with a lemony hop presence. I also get some fruity notes that reminded me of Sam Adams Summer Ale (grains of paradise?). On the whole, maybe not that different from Sixpoint's Sweet Action.

Well-carbonated and light-bodied with a drying finish. This beer was pretty refreshing and paired well with pork tacos. Although I'd hesitate to classify it as a cream ale, I did enjoy drinking Hijack, and I'd order it again over other summer-friendly Texas options like Saint Arnold's Fancy Lawnmower or Real Ale Fireman's 4. (1,199 characters)
