Pale gold with thin ring of head.

Smells are hard to detect but biscuit malt and orange peel

Flavors of hop out front with grapefruit pith trailing behind and a biscuit base. Nice dry hop character.

Feel is crispy yet creamy

A fair to good ipa. Id try it again.

As basic as it gets in Houston.... average IPA. Decent when you're drunk at the bar but that's about it.

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.

It's a good beer. I would definitely keep this is the fridge, kinda tame for an IPA which makes it a great sipping beer.
