Appearance: Golden yellow IPA with a thin layer of foam at the rim. A decent amount of carbonation. Definitely a light IPA.

Smell: Wet hay and pine hops. Definitely rustic, and I like it in this setting at Big Texan in Amarillo.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Good mineral flavors with a pine bite. Again, very, very rustic, and nice in the setting. Very refreshing. A bit thin in the feel.

Overall Drinkability: A very good IPA. A bit unusual as well.

Had this on tap. I had high hopes for this place with the styles they had on tap.

A-golden to copper color with 1 finger head

S- this is where it went wrong. Wet paper, oxidized to hell, band aid flavor with a slight hop lingering back there. Like drinking my first batch of Homebrew.

T-same as nose. Hard to get this down.

M-didn't even notice as the flavor was horrible.

I should have ordered coors light as it cold still cannot detect how bad tht is.
