My first impression was wow/citrusy! For excitement I like it! Out of a tap but not much head...it may have peaked early. I don't know if it is necessarily my favorite IPA, but it is a safe top 3

Poured from a can into a pint mug at around 52 degrees F. Pours sunset orange with pale yellow around the edges - much like a beautiful Texas sunset. Slight sediment, but I tend to like more... Three finger cavernous beige foam on top that lingers down to about a finger thick layer which stays - very pretty beer to look at... Smell is nice but sort of weak, typical of good single IPAs though. Medium-to-full bodied mouth feel and the alcohol is hidden well. Lots of bubbles but not too much carbonation on the palette... just right, actually. Taste is what really makes this beer - apricots, papaya, ripe mandarin oranges, slight peachy like sweetness with a citrus tartness that coats the tongue and stays there... Malt regiment is such that the fruitiness is slightly more sweet than bitter, like they are sun-ripened fruits. Bitterness comes at the end and stays for a long time, battling the lingering sweet fruits... Awesome complex IPA, I only wish the alcohol percentage was a bit higher.

Appearance- Orange amber in color, hazy, and pours a foamy two finger head.

Aroma- Pine and grapefruit along with some bready malt sweetness.

Taste- Grapefruit and sweet caramel malt are noticeable at first, but in the middle and finish the bitterness and dryness intensifies with bread and pine flavors.

Feel- Medium bodied, easy drinking, medium carbonation, and dry in the finish.

Overall- A crisp easy drinking ipa that has great balance and flavor. Definitely a must try Texas ipa.

Hazy orange with respectable head. Smells citrusy with floral accents and some fruit aroma. Has some citrusy, floral, some peach, other fruity flavors, and pine hoppy flavors, but something just tasted very off. I think I may have gotten a bad can honestly. There was a date on the bottom and I am not sure if it was a made on date or best by date. Overall it was a pretty ok IPA, might try it again to see if it was the can that made it taste off.

Update: ended up trying another one over in Dallas the other day, and it there was a definite difference with regards to flavor. Had all the flavors previously described, but without those off flavors that previously turned me away from this beer. But with this said there seems to be some pretty big inconsistencies

Look: 3.75 Orangey gold with off half finger of white head.
Smell 4 Lots of peach with a hint of orange and grapefruit.
Taste 4.25 Like the smell lots of peach with a hint of orange and grapefruit balanced nicely with sweet malt. Alcohol is completely hidden.
Feel 4 Medium carbonation, slightly sticky, medium thickness.
Overall 4.25 I really like this and can definitely be considered a goto for peach flavor forward IPAs.

Served in a pint glass at The Leaning Pear.

Golden brown. Clear. Nice head.

Nice and hoppy and vaguely fruity. Coniferous.

Sparkly and exciting, but once the sharp mouthfeel fades, the remaining beer is a sort of faded and hackneyed IPA. Competent but not exceptional. A solid IPA.

Not bad, not great. Solid.

Doesn't stand up to Yellow Rose and Mosaic overall. If those are available, go that direction.

Preferred the smell over the taste.
