Beautiful, rich, orange color with a wonderful citrus aroma followed by a distinct taste of grapefruit and a hoppy finish. This is one IPA that won't be flying under the radar much longer.

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.
