Your believing you've tasted one of the top shelf American IPAs until you've finished a Hopadilla; that's best on tap...

Ahhh, Hopadillo IPA....
This beer is fantastic. Floral, piney, grassy, nicely carbonated and cheap!!! $6 a sixer here in Houston. This beer is gorgeous. Pours almost nut brown, thick head, great lacing. It smells like a fresh hop cone. It goes down dry and smooth, while ringing every last nuance out of the hops.

Beautiful, local, hoppy, bright, cheap...

Uhhh no brainer.

Let's take a trip...just east of Tacoma Wa. Cool, Crisp, a fresh sent in the air. Nothing but Evergreens for miles in every direction. This beer embodies the true taste of a Northwest hop. What a culture shock when you find this beer hails from the grate lone star state. Hoppy, tangy, and a woody taste when you get deep into the flavors, a true IPA lover will find themselves in Nirvana with this beer in their hand.

Look is a murky, golden, Amber. Smell has an earthy, piney note to it. Taste is hoppy with a slight bitterness. Slight citrus note to it. Feel is smooth with a slight syrupyness to it. Overall, a great ipa!

I hope it does not decline in quality since bought out by the big bud.
I like it enough to drink it out of a can.
Lol!
Srsly tho, good stuff.

A - beautiful pour. clear copper/yellow with 1" of fluffy white head - TONS of lacing.

S - piney, sweet, earthy, malty, slight citrus

T - piney, sweet, mellow bitterness, slight earthy - a perfect blend of all standard IPA aspects

M - very smooth flowing, not too heavy, not too bitter - very easy on the palate

O - this is honestly close to perfection in every aspect as far as the style goes. i would have preferred some more hops/bitterness, but i'll leave that up to when they make a double ;)
