Cans via Tavour into a tulip. Beer totally matches is name, and delicious. Even given the unstable shipping temperatures it tasted delicious. Some haze with dankness all up front and towing some tropical undertones. This would be a regular purchase of local. Enjoyed all attributes of the beer, if fresh I'd grab without hesitation for my palate preferences.

Disappointed, given the summaries read here. Akin to a decent novice homebrew, its main setbacks are:

1) Dusty appearance and strong yeast flavor and aroma, as if from a poor yeast harvest or autolysis occurring in my recently purchased sixer (from Trader Joe’s). Cake bed impaction nonexistent, only a putrid colloidal mass that immediately folded into my glass, and

2) Overcarbonated. CO2 levels bordered on accidental, imparting the mouthfeel of a freshly opened Mexican Coke sans viscosity. Once swirled down to a drinkable volume, a respectable yet lingering IBU level came through, as if licking a bitter stamp.

Overall, annoyed at what could have been an enjoyable, middle-of-the-road IPA. Poor execution and control, an example of an off-batch that screams for a marked improvement of facilities management. Whether it was taxed yeast or bacterial infection, no brewery can sustain an institutional failure of this sort, and I foresee some staff changes in their near future, if not perhaps also another tasting.

Hazy orangeish amber. Healthy head with solid lace.

Pine-forward aroma with notes of citrus and perhaps grass?

First taste impressions are a nice hop profile, a little more bitter than I recall from my previous pour, subtle hints of peach. Bright and bubbly. I'm a fan!

12 oz can. Pours hazy gold with finger white head, fades to a ring, not much lace. Sweet tropical fruit and citrus pulp aroma. Taste is full of zesty citrus peel, lemon and tangerine. Finishes dry with some dank earthy notes and a sharp salt-n-pepper spicy end. Nice soft semi oily mouthfeel. Very solid flavorful IPA from TX.

This pours a very cloudy golden color with an orange tinge to it.that has a thick and fluffy white head that settles to a bread like bubble pattern and and has good lacing down the glass.

The smell is very rich with a wonderfully complex hop aroma that is tart, fruity and spiced with a variety of pepper, pine and grass with subtler notes of bread, citrus and fruit.

The taste is wonderfully perfect IPA that is rich, malty goodness that has a great bitter start and finish with notes of lemon zest, bread, pine, apples and other fruity notes that are so well balanced with the bitter that the finish is clean and just right.

The mouthfeel is perfect also and rich with out being cloying; Just right.

Overall this is a perfect IPA and will be one I seek out again and again.
