Another great Austin beer. This one is a staple- perfect for hanging out at the pool. It has a slightly mellow tropical smell. Taste is very balanced- perfect amount of fruit, bitterness and malt. Excellent beer. God bless Texas.

This is a solid IPA on the lighter, see-through, side of IPAs and I'm glad a friend brought me a sixer back from Austin on his recent trip. Golden, almost pale in appearance, it has none of the questionable haze of east coast IPAs (sorry, not a fan of the murk). The smell has a great cut grass meets sun-roasted grapefruit peel. Taste is a near perfect balance between malt and bitter, the way an IPA should taste, with none of the weird cat pee scents that can come with too much bitterness or particular hops. The feel is good - not overly carbonated, good balance, good acids, and overall I think this IPA carries its 6.2% abv with grace. Fooled me - I would have sworn it was around 5.5, more like a session. Seek out.

Can. A canned beer from Texas called Fire Eagle? Red, White and Blue chills shoot down my spine. Pew, pew, pew! This one pours a clear, bright yellow/gold. The aroma is very neat. I just checked their website and the description of this beer is amazing. "Flavor swoops in (cue EAGLE SCREAM), grabs you by the face and flies you through the hop rainbow". Kudos. The beer actually does smell very majestic and it teases tastiness. Pale malt underneath a clean but extravagant hoppiness. Tropical fruits, grasses and the like. The flavor is a bit more buttoned up. All the same essences of the nose are in effect but they aren't as intense. A bit more from the malt. The hops and malt do match very pleasantly. Body is light and drinkable. I love me some really pale IPAs. This one fits. Fly eagle, fly.
