New brewery in Fort Worth Texas.This is a very tasty brew,india red ale that is sticky and malty that quickly fades to piney hop bitterness.I really like this brew and can't wait to try more beers from this brewery.

I don't see any can date.

Appearance: It has a slightly hazy orange-brown body with a nice thick creamy textured tobacco stained yellow and cream colored head.

Aroma: It has a great tangerine aroma mixed with some savory garlic and onion. The aroma is not overwhelmingly strong but it does leap out of the glass and it is really pleasant.

Taste: The flavors closely mimic the aroma. It has a nice bit of tangerine flavor. While it doesn't taste like garlic and onion, it does have a bit of an herbal character. It is a bit woody as well. Just a bit of alcohol flavor pops in here and there. There is just a bit of grain husk at the end.

Mouthfeel: It has really good bitterness with a nice clean overall character.

Overall: It's a good beer. It's not something that will blow your socks off or really hold a place in the memory banks but it is good enough to grab a six pack of cans and enjoy once.

Pours a reddish color with off-white colored head. Citrus, pine, caramel malts, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with pine and malt.

Light hazy straw color. A nice but thin head. Good carbonation. A light hoppy aroma. A buttery smooth mouthfeel that compliments the hoppy taste. Overall it’s interesting and I’ll be trying another. From a 12 ounce can into a tumbler at The Old Crystal Bar in Alpine, TX.
