12 oz. bottle poured into pub glass

L: murky caramel with definite amber highlights; almost orange, actually ... kind of cool. love the murky opaque look. slight off-white fluffy head that laces; not a ton of lace but definite clingings on the glass wall.

S: molasses mixed into a typical hoppy American pale ale; in fact, the sweet/malty/molasses smell is very on balance with the hops, to the point that the hops do not stand on their own in the nose.

T: follows the nose almost to a T. wonderful and interesting spin on the American IPA ... that sweet taste in there is very different and hard for me to place exactly. the bottom line is there's a lot of balance here between the barley and hops.

M: crisp, clean, a wonderful lightness that is not watery. would be perfect but it's actually over-carbonated, which doesn't bother me at all because I love carbonation -- but even I can tell this one is just a hair overboard from the mythical "perfect."

O: absolutely LOVE it! I don't overscore it here because it's not going to change your life and cause you to declare Stormcloud is the only beer you will ever drink again. No. it's very, very good, not necessarily a classic, but what I love is the BALANCE ... loads of interesting tastes besides hops, yet enough hops (and ABV) to push it past the American pale ale category into the American IPA.

for a Texas comparison, I think this tastes almost exactly like Karbach's Rodeo Clown ... maybe just a bit toned down across the board -- taste, smell, ABV, et. al.

a damn good option when you're out and about in the Metroplex and/or other Texas spots.

clean amber pour with 2 fingers foamy white head and great lacing.
smells a bit strange - piney with a slight hint of vegetables (broccoli/sugar snap peas), honey
taste is an earthy bitter up front, followed by a sweet frosted flakes like backbone, slight hop bitterness in the background, a bit of honey/caramel in the finish.
a very lightly carbonated medium body ipa.

this is a pretty average ipa, seems like it wasn't fresh, maybe that's the reason i didn't get much hop profile out of it. as far as the malts go, they are a nice blend of bitter and sweet.
