Thanks for this extra Matt.

The beer pours a cloudy burnt-orange and leaves spider web lacing down the sides as it's quarter inch, white head falls flat. There is ample carbonation helping to push forward strong notes of layered, hoppy bitterness and sugary citrus. Very little alcohol is detected while drinking. This IPA tastes relatively fresh, with pungent piney hops and some citrus fruit in the aftertaste. The resiny bitterness lingers for quite some time after words. In summary, this is a tasty IPA, but fails to blow my socks off.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a bright hazy golden orange with a big billowy white head that recedes to a thick cap and leaves good lacing. The aroma is tame with some light lemony hops and some floral as well. There is light sweet malts as well but it’s all very subdued. The taste is more of the same and actually a little less impressive. There is some faint citrus hops and light sugary malts. There is a light metallic bitterness in the finish and a fairly surprising alcohol burn. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with good carbonation but the flavors seem watery. Overall a decent session IPA.

On tap at Daddy's (6th Street) in Austin, Texas.

Waitress brought me a deep amberish-brown brew with a good amount of depth to its color and a fair amount of carbonation and head retention. Aroma is dominated by piney & resinous hops with a well-balanced, sweet malt profile, flowery notes, and some citrus.

A big, resinous hop body greets the palate, with fruity notes of banana, mango, and grape. It's sweet, but has that powerful hop note to balance it out. A strange, semi-alcoholic "stale, sweaty air" flavor lingers on the finish, but it's not too distracting. Mouthfeel detects a medium body, average carbonation, but a poor finish that's a bit like wet paper. This beer is good, but it's not something I'd seek out. I'm glad I got to try it though.

Thanks to wagenvolks for throwing this in as an extra! 12oz bottle into a DFH Signature glass pours a crisp bubbly orange with a nice frothy eggshell head that lasts as a thin layer and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is nice floral earthy hops in front of sweet malts. The taste is a nice amount of crisp citrus hops with a decent amount of sweet malts backing them up but giving way to a nice lingering bitter citrus hop finish. The beer is quite light, crisp and refreshing. This is a very tasty IPA, one I could certainly see having again if I get the opportunity.

Thanks to htomsirveaux for the Teas brews!

A - Gold and hazy with a little white head and spotty lace.

S - Vague hop, slightly vegetal, some alcohol, kind of homebrew-ish...

T - Basically the same as the nose. Decent taste, not too bad, but not spectacular in any way. Nor are any of the flavors particularly sharp or succinct.

M - IPA. Decent.

D - This is a solid beer, albeit unremarkable. I wouldn't pass it up, but then again, I probably wouldn't buy it either.
