Thanks to a buddy who brought me back a bottle from his trip out there. Pours a deep amber color with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches and some grape fruit. The taste starts off with creamy malt resulting from the pale 2-row and caramel malts and Saint Arnold yeast. The hop bitter starts low then builds to a crescendo, but always maintains a balance even in its big finish. The hop flavor continues to be citrusy and peachy, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. Medium mouthfeel. Overall a solid DIPA.

A: Poured a deep honey color with good carbonation but the head was short lived, bubbles and lacing died rapisdly leaving small white cap and moderate lacing

S: Not as big as I expected or wanted. Pine, citrus with a little bit of caramel

T: This beer tastes very nice. I get a great mix of light pine and caramel malt upfront. Mdway citrus notes come through with finish if grassy floral hops and light bitterness

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated

O: Good across the board. Really easy to drink, tasty, balanced

On tap at Boondoggles in El Lago, Texas.

This is a great DIPA. In fact, it's my favorite of all that I have tried.

Plenty of grapefruit taste in my opinion, which I'm a big fan of. Lots of hops too as expected. Bitterness is there, but it fits in. Plenty of ABV so be ready.

If it's on tap, its going to be hard to pass up in the future.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a sturdy head blanketing the clear amber liquid; nice delivery of lacing

Smell: Sugar-coated grapefruit; some caramel underneath

Taste: Grapefruit flavors, right off the bat, with a building citrusy sweetness that adds a caramel dimension in the middle; bitter, citrusy and sweet elements all combine to make a bold statement in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: While it is a tad too sticky and sweet for me, this is still a very good DIPA

A - Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left thin rings of sudsy lace on the glass.

S - It smelled like a simcoe hopped beer. Lots of bubblegum, pine and citrus. Some toasty malt.

T - It tasted of tart grapefruit, bubblegum, orange, tropical fruits and toasty caramel malt.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a very tasty imperial IPA. The best Saint Arnold beer Ive had so far.

Appearance - Golden red, 1 finger heavy white head

Smell - citrus and grass clippings

Taste - lightly bready with strong grapefruit and pine

Mouthfeel - stickier. Medium carbonation. Works well with the hop intensity.

Overall - Fantastic ride. Would do again. High ABV so wear your big boy pants.

Best thing to come out of Houston since Bobby Brown. Hops make it. Challenger, centennial, oh and did i mention king Simcoe??
Bags of flavour, crisp, citrussy and no metallic aftertaste that is so common in US DIPAs.
Defo tastes best in draft, even better at the brewery, but a bottle is also great.
Only downside - i dont have one right now
