Pours a clear apple juice brown with a 1 inch off-white head that fades to nothing. Good rings of lacing on the drink down. Smells very simplistic with some sweet malt and citrus zest hops. Taste is exactly like the nose. Sweet malt up front followed by the citrus zest hop flavor. Medium bitterness on the tongue after each sip. Good carbonation with a light body. Drinkability is pretty average on this beer. Nothing too good, nothing too bad. I probably wouldn't get this one again.

I really enjoyed this beer. I'm a hop whore. I love super butter IPAs that are strong and I love thick mouth feeling DIPAs. I really not a fan of most session IPAs. I also do not like drinking beer as I eat. This IPA, however, was very light, but balanced, complex and with a sweet after taste. It was excellent to drink with my meal (salmon and rice). If I wasn't loaded up with some great beers at home id of purchased a growler. I was really impressed with this beer and would get it again, especially with a meal.

On tap at BJ’s in Allen, Texas. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is quite hoppy, with a lot of grass and a little bit of orange citrus thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of bitterness up front, with a little grass, resin and orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I enjoyed this IPA. The smell was great, the taste was a little bit of a let down. Still quite good, but if the flavor matches the nose, it would be great.

Didn't love it. Maybe something was off with this batch but wasn't what I prefer out of an IPA.
