It looks really nice. Beautiful foamy head and golden, clear. It's got a weird sweetness in the nose. Can't place it, but its a little funky and unpleasant, even if its not strong. It might be diacytl, but I'm not sure.

Too much bitterness and not enough balance. Love hops, but sometimes they bitter too much and don't bring the flavor. That's what we got here. A little sweetness, I guess from the malts but it doesn't feel right. Mouth feel it full. Over all its not too bad. Its problems don't make it undrinkable, but probably won't seek it out.

Pours a dark amber color in the glass. Pleasantly carbonated with a nice mouthfeel. Foam is ample. Some malty richness, but a thin body.

An unassuming amber ale sort of brew. It might be a stretch to call it an IPA. Fruity, dark flavors emerge along with the hops. Some leafy, herbaceous taste as well as an earthy touch. Not much actual bitterness, but a resiny taste in the back of the mouth. Quite drinkable, and the mellow hops are rather pleasant as long as you're not expecting a whipping from the Hop Dominatrix.

A nice change from the ubiquitous Texas blondes, but no trophy wife. From the 12 oz bottle bought at H and H Beverage in Abilene..

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hops, hint of pale malt, hint of cracker, and hint of citrus. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, hint of citrus, sweet malt, and a hint of pale malt, hint of yeast. Overall, aroma and taste were muted to begin, but slowly came to life as this warmed. Still, rather average for an AIPA with good appearance and feel.

clean amber pour with 2 fingers foamy white head and great lacing.
smells a bit strange - piney with a slight hint of vegetables (broccoli/sugar snap peas), honey
taste is an earthy bitter up front, followed by a sweet frosted flakes like backbone, slight hop bitterness in the background, a bit of honey/caramel in the finish.
a very lightly carbonated medium body ipa.

this is a pretty average ipa, seems like it wasn't fresh, maybe that's the reason i didn't get much hop profile out of it. as far as the malts go, they are a nice blend of bitter and sweet.
