Thanks to a buddy who brought me back a bottle from his trip out there. Pours a deep amber color with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches and some grape fruit. The taste starts off with creamy malt resulting from the pale 2-row and caramel malts and Saint Arnold yeast. The hop bitter starts low then builds to a crescendo, but always maintains a balance even in its big finish. The hop flavor continues to be citrusy and peachy, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. Medium mouthfeel. Overall a solid DIPA.

Appearance: Bright amber gold glass shows excellent clarity. Holds a thin head that is a bit below expectation for a DIPA, but laces nicely.

Smell: Fresh, oily hop cones, all West Coast citric. Grapefruit with a touch of pine, the hops overwhelm any malt character which leaves me a bit concerned this may be a bitter bomb, but mmm fresh hops.

Taste: Bitter almost tea like start fades into a sweet hard candy peach before the oily hops soak in for a long slow finish. Nice round profile. Loads of hops, cone, leaf, maybe a bit of vine, they went whole hog. As I adjust to the bitter, the candy note goes a little pixie stix and gets a little distracting.

Mouthfeel: Oil spill, medium heavy body with a mild chew, lively carbonation.

Overall: A nice IPA. West Coast the way I like 'em. That middle sweet note is just a touch off in my book, but more of a preference than a flaw. Nice to have a Texan IPA go this big and bold, I can see grabbing another while it's fresh.

Bonus bomber bottle sent in a beer trade with Tim from Houston. Thanks, dude...

Very clear light copper body with an excellent thick white head. Lots of active, fine carbonation.

Heady pungent aroma of citrus and pine. Smells sweet and rich..

Sweet, toast-like malt notes in the initial taste, soon followed by an all-encompassing soft bitterness. Biscuit and toffee hints.

Medium-bodied.

A pretty spiffy TX IPA. Seems to hit all the right characteristics across the board. Easy drinking and satisfying...

Really just about everything about this beer was a surprise, and a good one at that. For one, I thought I had picked a barleywine out of my beer fridge, but upon popping the bottle it was clear this was no barleywine! Hops everywhere. Great aroma, flavor, perfect bitterness (which was high, but good for this beer), everything just said "tasty."

Mostly what stood out for me was citric and pine-forest hops. Not much malt comes through, so I wouldn't call it balanced, but then IPAs aren't really a balanced style anyway.

Body was medium and pretty dry, overall the beer was very tasty and I'll have to stop by the place where I found it again and see if they have some more.

22oz bottle thanks to SSW117.

A- Pours a golden amber with about a head of slightly off-white head that quickly dissipates to leave almost no head. Some spotty lacing, a little bit below average carbonation.

S- Pretty malty, some hops, but definitely not a hopbomb, some spices, below average aroma strength for an IPA.

T- Malts, spices, some light hops, definitely more malts then hops. Lightly sweet, tiny bit bitter on the finish but definitely more dominated by the malts.

M- Medium bodied, below average carbonation, goes down easy, abv very well hidden.

O- Not bad but I was a little bit disappointed by this one (considering it was rated a 4.21), definitely too dominated by the malts- just not what I expect from an IPA. Abv was very well hidden and not bad too drink. Glad I got to try this, thanks again SSW117.
