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.

Had this on 2017-04-04 in Arlington, TX from a 12 oz can.

A - Very clear gold with a 1-finger off white head and good lace.

S - Moderately dank, light citrus, biscuit.

T - Toasted white bread, pine, caramel, citrus, earthy spice. Flavor isn't dank. Moderately bitter finish.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Lightly resinous.

O - Bought this at a gas station by the hotel on my overnight trip here from PA. It was the only local IPA in the cooler. Pretty good all things considered.

Appearance: Pours clear and amber colored with a full, foamy head; nice stickage and a few shards of lacing remain

Smell: Caramel malt tones buttressed by piney, spicy hops

Taste: Caramel forward with piney hops building; hints of pith and earthy tones, through the middle; moderate bitterness arrives and lingers, merging with the sweeter tones in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A pleasant drinker, with a Cook's tour around the hop world
