Had it on draft at the airport. The service was horrible but the beer fantastic. Smooth, earthy, with no bitter backdraft to plague me over Oklahoma.

Extremely refreshing, with meditative appeal.

Picked up a single from Spec's in San Antonio 4-12-17 for $1.44. Canned on 01-09-17 and stored in the beer fridge since purchase.

Beer poured amber-orange with a beautiful white head.

Nose was a pleasant amount of citrus.

Taste was a caramel and pale malt body balanced nicely by citrus, grassy, and floral hops. No lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall this was a very easy drinking IPA and very enjoyable that held up surprisingly well.

Beautiful color, golden/orange/amber. Poured into a cheap clear glass from a 19.2 oz can. Nice fruity smell, citrusy. (Is that a word?) Good carbonation and a refreshing feel in the mouth. Not an aggressive ipa, good for a beginner. I have only recently aquired a taste for ipa's and suggest slowly moving up the intensity level. Nothing spectacular but a really good tx ipa nonetheless.

Very drinkable. A good IPA for someone just getting into the style. Unlike most IPA's this one doesn't overdo the hops. Could drink this with a meal on a hot day.

Orange-amber with an off-white head.

Smell is rug, grapefruit and pine.

Taste is sharp grapefruit, orange, pine, toast and a little butter.

Thin, fizzy and semi-dry.
