New to Texas, late for me to reveiw. The beer poured a deep copper amber with a significant off white head. The aroma kicked in immediately with a strong essence of grapefruit rind and some floral notes with a slight sweet malt underneath. The taste hit me with more bitter grapefruit rind and bits of tropical fruit that was wrapped around the malty sweetness. It all ended with a palate soaking piney bitterness that was right up my IPA alley. The Hop Shock doesn’t pull its bitter punches and socked me into hop heaven. A decent IPA and proper introduction to SanTan Brewing.

Appearance: Copper and brown in color, some crunchy lacing and nice head retention. Head is a very nice pancake color.
