On tap at the Ginger Man. Pours out smooth and creamy, silky head. Gentle hoppy aroma, taste brings out some caramelly malts, hops rest softly on the backplane. Mild for an IPA, but very well crafted.

It's very refreshing and enjoyable, some extra carbonation, but nothing really makes it stand out from the crowd with so mant different IPAs available on the market -- in Texas alone. It has a lot of hops, mostly bitter ones, and reminds me of similar ones in the style. Smell is very faint but nice. I've had beers taste like this and at least hide in an additional 3% alcohol haha. Worth a try just to say that you've had it at least, kinda expensive at certain stores but to a true IPA/hops lover you couldn't really go wrong. Good session beer.

I think I received a dated batch but it was still enjoyable. The malty sweetness was outdoing the bittering hops but the aroma was still intact. Decent, but I would like to try it fresh.
