Single 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

Toasted orange and crowned with a thick white head which is not only very sticky, but also great with the retention. It smells of orange peel, grapefruit, and hemp. For this California guy, Hopadillo doesn't deliver the strong assault of hops as I'm used to getting in my IPA. Instead, Hopadillo makes up with subtleness. The toasted sugar base hits first, with little notes of resin, plus orange and lemon that are placed well. Hearty and medium bodied, trailed with just a little bitterness, it's a beer that I enjoyed.

Had this from the tap at The Dixie Chicken in College Station. Probably the best beer sold there. It's a nice sweet, bitter taste, and very smooth.

Sweet, and bready. Poured from a can into a pint. Very mild hop presence; almost couldn't tell it was an IPA. Every sip gets sweeter as it coats the tongue. Colour is amber with a off white head. Smell is somewhat estery, not a lot going on in the nose. Feel is very pleasant.

Overall, a really easy drinking IPA. It's not going to impress hop heads, but it's not really trying to.
