Bonus bomber bottle sent in a beer trade with Tim from Houston. Thanks, dude...

Very clear light copper body with an excellent thick white head. Lots of active, fine carbonation.

Heady pungent aroma of citrus and pine. Smells sweet and rich..

Sweet, toast-like malt notes in the initial taste, soon followed by an all-encompassing soft bitterness. Biscuit and toffee hints.

Medium-bodied.

A pretty spiffy TX IPA. Seems to hit all the right characteristics across the board. Easy drinking and satisfying...

Thanks to lnashsig for this one

App- More of an amber mixed with orange on this one with a very tight bound 1/2-1 finger white colored head with amazing cling and slide on this one. One of the best looking DIPA I have seen.

Smell- A nice smelling DIPA. Has a large hoppy beginning and then transitions to a nice malt backing note. Note overly tropical but does have some good citrus notes with some orange and lemon poking through. A small grapefruit and sticky sweet note on the back.

Taste- As I tweeted to lee since we were talking about this I will stand by what I said. The blend of 3 hops give a damp earthy citrus. Spicy, hoppy blend. Not overly bright but well balanced and clean. A nice DIPA but not overly wowing to me.

Mouth- A large medium body with a medium carbonation. A certain creamy note comes in on the finish with some good simple hop bitter and a little bit or citrus remaining.

Drink- A good DIPA from TX. Clean, to the point and well layered. It was for what this is a good rep of the style. The centenial and columbus doing a good job of layering bitter and citrus with the simcoe adding some pine in the finish. I'd like to have this on draught to compare. One day!

Pours a beautiful, hazy, dark orange color. Dark off-white head of about 2 fingers, leaving lots of sticky lace behind. Aroma has a lot of citrus, sweetness, slight grapefruit and tropical fruits, but there's also a nice level of pinyness to it. Pleasant bitterness without being Over the top. Plenty citrus fruits and tropical fruits and a touch of pine. Nice creamy feel, good carbonation, good body.

Still an excellent IPA... I think I actually like this better than 11...

Type: Draft
Glass: 12-oz. plastic cup
From: Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas
Price: $6.00
Purchased: Sept. 27, 2013
Consumed: Sept. 27, 2013
Misc.: In a very dark place during Oktoberfest

Poured what appeared to be a dark caramel amber color with two fingers of khaki white head. Tons of even layered lacing on the sides of the cup. Good retention all the way down.

Smelled a potent mix of wonderfully smelling hops. Got floral, citrus, grapefruit, peach and a touch of resin.

Tasted more earthier than the smell, but still fresh. Bitter grapefruit, floral heavy and citrus notes.

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

This was just a fantastic beer. I would love to try it again.

Had this one on tap at the brewery. Pours an amber to maybe orange color with a rather thick head that stayed for a little bit and left pretty decent lacing.
Odor was good with pine, citrus plentiful.
Taste starts out with hop bitterness and leads into some grapefruit and general citrus. A little sweet malt is present near the middle end.
Mouthfeel is relatively smooth with fairly typical carbonation and feel on the tongue.
Overall, a very good IPA and the best I tried from St Arnold so far.
