Poured into a pint glass. The color is very close to hazelnut, almost a hazy orange-brown. Leaves about an inch of head, which dissipates to a nice film. Small splattering of head retained.

Very nice hop aroma, grapefruit comes to mind. A very nice hop aroma, present not dominating.

Taste is a very pleasant hop bouquet, backed up by a sweet malts. Smooth hops that roll over your tongue, malts in the flavor, and through the finish you get a nice resurgent of hoppy bitterness that lingers for a good bit in the back of your throat.

Medium carbonation, and as it warms, the alcohol becomes more present.

Overall a solid IPA. A good local and big props to poonamibaxter for including this one!

I like to taste a lot of hops in my IPAs...doesn't everyone? But this is a muddled mess of malt sweetness with unpleasant bitterness at the same time and very little real hops flavor. One of my least favorite Texas IPAs. Tastes amateurish, like a weak attempt at the style by a mediocre homebrewer.

The beer pours a clear dark yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of piney and grassy hops. The flavor is pine hops as well as some citrus and some grainy notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad IPA, but nothing really stands out that makes me want to try it again.

Pours a slightly hazy, golden honey colour. Smells like sweet malts, citrus hops, honey, and pretty dank. Tastes like honeyed biscuits, sweet malts, orange peel and lemon peel hops, pretty dank, yet crisp.

Gold to copper in color with an inch of off white on top. The aroma is of onions and dankiness. I'm tasting vegetal hops, pine and light malt. The mouth is lightly sticky and chewy.

Light copper with the right amount of caramel malt. This is a malt forward IPA but with the dank that a great American IPA should have. Nice nose with hops other than Cascade and Citra like everyone else is using these days. I dig it. Perfect ABV for an American IPA.

Bottled.
Nice mouth feel...poured with 1" of head.. End taste a bit caramel overtones. Not very hoppy.
