L: Pours a fairly clear orange brown. A little more than a finger of light cream-tan colored head. A slightly above average amount of carbonation rising at a slightly above average velocity. 4
S: Mango and citrus hops, with hints of pine 4
T: Subdued mango and citrus notes along with some resinous and pine hops as well. Quite balanced and tasty. 4.25
F: Crisp, refreshing, mild bitterness, about average carbonation 4.5
O: This is an extremely good IPA 4.25

Pours a hazy gold with a long lasting white head. Smells of tropical fruit. Taste follows the aroma with a nice sweet malty backbone. It is medium bodied and refreshing. Overall, a good IPA. I will buy again!

Clear amber color with frothy off-white head. Aroma is resiny, slightly dank, also malty with a hint of caramel and butterscotch. Taste is also resiny with nice caramel but not sweet at all. Finish is quite bitter and piney. Medium body and carbonation, quite smooth on the palate. Really easy drinking, tasty, classic with a very nice bitterness.

32 oz. half growler on tap filled at Whole Foods on Waugh St. in Houston

L: murky bronze ... lots of orange, lots of brown, not a ton of amber; pushes up a 2-inch head of white foam that creates a mural of sticky-headed art ... what a show! I always have to pour that first glass pretty hard from this particular half growler, and it worked in my favor here because I want to keep this glass forever in its current state; it's not lacing much, but about 50% of the head stuck to the glass ... almost never see this much sticking

S: orange, pine, something floral, plenty of malt sweetness but not so much that it becomes overly caramely

T: a carnival ride of hops flavors on top a gentle easy going bed of biscuity malt; the hops are bitter and taste like grapefruit, mango, orange and maybe what I've heard called "starfruit" in the valley down south ... pear ... candied orange ... the bitterness bites midswallow and doesn't let go for awhile, kinda gently subsiding over time but lingering forever

F: nice all around, very soft and weighty up front with plenty of carbonation to help finish and fill out the back end

O: I'm afraid to buy a 6- or 12-pack of this one even though it's fantastic — I'm worried it won't live up to this half growler! the place I got it at has good reputation for keeping fresh beer on hand and keeping the lines clean, and this first glass of Azacca keeps that reputation in tact for me ... it's exactly what you expect from a good American IPA: lots of hops and enough malt to keep them together
