straight from the 12 oz. can at West Alabama Ice House in Houston, TX, on Oct. 16, 2017

L: no idea yet; will examine this one later

S: hoppy out of the can; will have to examine more later

T: clean hoppy bite, grapefruit/pine, as it warms gets very pine-woody, like brown pine cones or earthy pine bark; malt adds distinct layer of biscuit, not overly sweet; grapefruit peel, orange peel

F: full middleweight, lots of carbonation, very crisp; weight of the liquid fully supports all that carbonation coming out of the can

O: hard to score accurately coming out of the can, but the bottom line is it's a very good brew, good enough that I need to get a six-pack (or more) for the fridge; the hop bite is fantastic, and the mouthfeel is solid

On tap at 8th Wonder, good deal (3 for $15) and a glass, and this beer ties for my second favorite I've had here with the Hopston. Very nice creamy feel on the citrus laden wheat drank. Hops are present but not overwhelmingly so, kind of a tease but for the style it's exactly what I was hoping for. Awesome creamy feel, like an IPA minus the high IBU, and throw in some wheat-citrus-hops-cream and I could drink a lot of these. Cool beer. Thanks!

On tap at Provisions (Houston, TX). Clear, pale yellow with a frothy head of white foam. Fresh mown lawn herbal hop aroma. Lightly malty cream base with juicy hop notes. Crisp, light and smooth body and refreshing carbonation. Terrific convergence of light and easy drinking ale with dank and juicy hops.

On tap, poured into a rinsed pint glass. This is a dry hopped version of Dome Faux'm.

My first glance confirms it looks like what it's supposed to look like: a cream ale. No shenanigans there. Yellow color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is where we start to have some fun. No stale, light-bodied-cornhusk-malt-bullshit smells. There's dankness, backed by subtle pineapple notes. I love the feel; this is obviously where we can tell it's a cream ale. It's very smooth and pleasant, no hard edges. Would bang multiple times.

Poured on tap into a pint glass. Thin head that lingers. Clear golden orange in the glass. Smell the hops, so unlike its base. This is the best of both worlds, dome faux'm and hops. Going down this is so smooth. They have a great session beer here with a great mouthfeel. I hope they can this puppy.

Really loved this beer on draft. Found it once at Poison Girl here in Houston. It's golden in color and the dry hop makes it a total floral hop bomb. Lots of lavender and rose on the nose and a great balanced finish. Really refreshing and a great drinking beer. Would drink this beer all day if I could get my hands on it more easily.
