citrus and piney hit on the end excessive, too high in alcohol. Decent malt level

Man, people that think this is one of Texas' best IPA's need to get out more. Way too caramelly to be a favorite IPA of mine and really too much for the style unless you are talking English IPA (which we are not). Not enough hops to keep it from tasting honey-sweet and not nearly enough hops aroma to be a good IPA. Slightly boozy, toffee-ish, boring. Might pass for an American Strong Ale with just a touch more malt. I ain't pouring it out but I won't have another. Just as a side note, I don't think it's badly brewed and I have had several DE beers that I thought were excellent. I just have a problem with the recipe on this one. But as everyone knows, it comes down to what floats YOUR boat!

If you like reqlly hoppy, East Coast style IPAs, try this. It is hands down my favorite local craft beer.

Transparent dark amber with a large, dense khaki foam head.

Smell is mango, melon, pear and apple.

Taste is toffee, mango, melon with a little pepper. At first I get some bitter herb, but it turns floral and slightly sweet afterwards.

Frothy and dry.
