While in Austin I was able to enjoy a glass of this at the Whip In.

I am very glad to see that the state of Texas is discovering the use of hops in their beers. This version was pretty nice.

The beer is a hazy light amber with a finger of off white head that leaves a lot of lacing behind.

Aroma is fruity, some yeast

Flavor also brings a fair amount of fruit flavors with some citrus/lemon and even a touch of peach. Fairly bitter, but not extremely assertive.

Prickly light carbonation, pretty nice.

Draft to Pint

App- Standard coloring of a deep DIPA. The oranges and yellows all balance out. A bit of a nice dense center with some darker center. A small 1/2" white capped head was there and left okay cling.

Smell- This was a nice and resiny DIPA. The hops are balanced with a good amount of dry grassy bitter and the citrus adds a layer of tropical fruit (Not much). This had a bit of a boozy note and not sure why with only 7%

Taste- I enjoyed this DIPA. It was more akin to what I am used to in So.Cal. A deep bitter and piney resin balanced out by the semi creamy malts. A bit herbal/grassy on the finish. Nice and semi-balance.

Mouth- A good and deep medium body and then more of a full medium carbonation. This one fills you up. A lot of the piney and resin remain on the back with some citrus.

Drink- I really enjoyed this. Made me think I was back in SD enjoying a good west coast IPA. Id have this one again when I come back to TX.

Growler acquired in trade with lb4lb (thanks for answering my call for this one!).

Poured a medium and hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, and all around floralness. Tastes of citrus, pine, floral, lighlty earthy, and some caramel. Had a lighter sweetness to the bitterness.

Pours clear and golden into a shaker pint. Good finger of foam that holds up even over time.

This brew has a big piney hop aroma that --surprise--comes across on the palate as well. Its reminiscent of a forest, with pine notes dominating. Some pine, some resin, a little chew. Sharp, clean finish. Crisp and refreshing. If I had a lawn to mow I’d make this my lawnmower beer.

I had this one at Opal Devine while sitting on the patio. It was served in a standard pint. The beer is a hazy dark peach with a thickish beige head. Nice lacing.

The aroma is of pinesap and background notes of bread dough.

Nicely bitter with pine, citrus and something earthy in the finish. This is a solid, well put together IPA.

The mouth is oily and slick. Nice effort and it goes down almost to easy!
