Pours a milky yellow, otange. Strong pineapple followed by mango and tangerine with light pine resin. Tastes of tropical fruit, mostly mango with a stronger resin kick then repesented in the nose. Medium body with slight astringent edge to a good resin burn on tongue and throat. Great beer, nailed it with this one Houston!

pours a deep yellow. turbid. white head fades into a slight ring around the glass.
nose is pineapple, guava, mango, ripe tropical fruits, hoppy resin
taste follows. initially guava, mango, peach, grapefruit, followed by delicious piney resin, nice punch of bitterness of the end; not overly sweet. a touch of alcohol present on the finish.
mouthfeel is smooth, lightly creamy. lingering grapefruit / resin. Not overly sweet / cloying like some IPAs with ABVs this high can tend to be.
delicious beer.

Pours a very cloudy golden yellow color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is good. Nice, fresh citrus aroma with a good amount of piney resin. Some tropical fruit in there as well. Big and bold juicy taste. Tropical fruit up front, followed by a nice mildly bitter piney resin, ending with some grapefruit. Medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation. Very good beer.

Can one month old. Pours a turbid thick straw yellow with a thick white head on heavy pour. Nose is very fragrant. Tropical fruit bouquet with hints of citrus pith and floral. Taste like a tropical fruit smoothie with a slight hoppy bite! Notes of mango, papaya, guava and pineapple shine. Notes of bitter citrus peel and light floral notes along with the slightest bit of sweet dough. Extremely creamy! Nice creamy body that drinks so smooth. 9%? Wouldn’t know it by how smooth and easy it drinks. Nice hoppy finish to it with just the slightest bite to it that reminds you you’re drinking a beer ;)

Brewed in honor of the beer that kicked off Houston's transformation into Juice-town, Houston Haze's 1st anniversary celebration beer, Houston Hazier, is indeed Houston Haze on steroids. The Citra + Galaxy hop assault is one for the ages, and the beer doesn't drink anything remotely close to its 9% ABV. Yet another grand slam for SpindleTap, who have been absolutely annihilating the juicy AF game in 2018 and are quickly rising from local superstar to national prominence.

Awesome aroma, you get a lot of tropical fruity notes. I feel the hops used for this beer kinda threw me off i was kind of disappointed. But it’s still a good beer. Not great but good.
