From a cask at the Petrol Station in Houston, TX
A - Poured a copper color with an off white head that leaves lacing behind
S - Is a nose full of citrus and piney hops
T - Follows the nose lots of citrus and pine hops with a touch of malt coming through
M - This beer has a great smooth medium body with lighter carbonation to it
O - I've had this beer many times but this is one of those IPAs that get better when its from a firkin the smoothing out from the cask just brings out the flavors a must try if you have the chance to get it cask

Poured bottle into glass. 6.7% abv.
Appearance- A brilliant and clear dark red amber with a massive foamy head on it.
Smell- Citrus; orange and grapefruit. Not much else....did I mention citrus? lol
Taste- A dual blast of malt and hops. The initial malt blast is somewhat of a toasty bread character. The hops remain through the whole flavor profile until a spicy hot finish. Notes of grapefruit along with hints of sweet caramel too. Wickedly complex.
Mouthfeel- Heavy body of which is thick and creamy.
Overall- A solid example of a great IPA. This was the first craft beer I tried years ago so maybe it has a sentimental impression on me, but nevertheless, it is damn good if you dont mind a complex bitter blast. The hops linger as much as any other IPA. A must try if you're a hophead.
