Clear orange with a bigg off-white head that lasts. Nice lacing.

Aroma is sweet juicy peach and citrus. There's some toffee and a faint spiciness.

Taste is sweet citrus initially that goes into a nice caramel sweetness with a pine and grapefruit finish. Subtle bitterness with a nice malt balance. Lasting pine aftertaste.

Medium body with soft carbonation. Dries out in the finish.

Great beer overall. Great balance. Really easy easy to drink. Happy to have it in Texas.

The beer pours a dark golden orange color with a thin filmy off white head. It smells pretty amazing, i picked up a sweet candy like caramel flavor With a bouquet of fruity and floral hop aroma. Nice bitter hop flavor with fruit and citrus with more caramel in the background and a grapefruit peel finish. The beer is medium bodied with velvety carbonation and a smooth finish. This is an exceptional ipa, there is nothing bad to say about this brew. It's nice and balanced and hides the abv very well.

Pours a beautiful, wondrous, deep, strong copper. Soft white head fades quickly. Hops and malts up front, with mild bitter and alcohol taste coming in at the of sip. Very easy to drink, with mild carbonation. Smell and taste fit perfectly, and pushes the overall experience to a new level.

Very very delicious, palatable as well as complex. Pours a beautiful red-brown with a real good head. This bottle I'm drinking now is not the most fresh (about 4 months old) but I still find it as enjoyable as other fresher ones that I've had.

Nose - Not a lot of hop aroma, getting more of a tart sweetness

Taste- well balanced centennial hops, really well crafted. Hops build as you drink it, but they are never overwhelming.

Mouthfeel - very very nice, moist and medium bodied. Doesn't leave the palate dry at all. Only a want for more.
