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.

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.
