Your standard hoppy Ale. Best right from the can in my opinion, a staple in southeast texas. Can be found as most convenience stores in the cooler, which elevates it to a level above many similar beers on availability alone. No beer lover will be upset if you bring them one of these.

Sour almost citrus taste right off the getgo, with a definite aftertaste almost like you ate a grapefruit. Good carbonation, can be chugged a bit painfully but I don't see why you'd want to. Overall a balanced taste. My overall favorite everyday beer.

Canned 03-12-18. No other IPAs in the cooler were fresh, so grabbed this on a whim.

Pours a clear copper with big rocky offwhite head. Settles slowly to a thin cap a spray of lace trailing. Smell: caramel, orange citrus, coriander, lightly fruity. Taste: honey wheat bread, caramel, lime, orange peel, peach, grassy and spicy closer. Medium bodied, decent bitterness, balanced.

TXIPA? Nah, I'm pretty sure someone in TX makes a good IPA. This is not it, however it's a decent American hopped ESB hybrid, like a bit amped up Sweetwater 420

What makes this Texas style? I get a darker than expected brew. Lots of caramel malt comes across, with orange peel bitterness. Big state, not so big flavor.
