3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a short white head which leaves a coarse lace. Medium, but very fine carbonation. Cut grass nose, medium body, minimally sweet. Pine, fruit and floral hops (in that order), toasty middle and finish. A good session IPA and one of the top beers in Texas.

On tap at the Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Nose was not impressive on this. May have been too cold. Not enough citrus. More an earthy, nutty aroma. Taste was earthy and nutty with some pine. Mouthfeel was dry and bitter. OK. Not impressed by nose, but a good texture in the mouth.

Draught > Gingerman. Not very familiar w/ these guys but if their other beers are anything like this guy then we’ll be close friends soon enough. Pretty much a grapefruit bomb which destroyed my tongue so it’s all good in da hood. Tasty! Ready for another.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 My first rating of this in April 2010 must have been a less tuned up batch. This amazingly drinkable IPA has now become my favorite Texas session IPA. Pours bright yellow/orange with grapefruit mango nose. Lots of citrus and fruit in this one, with a perfectly lasting bitter finish. It’s not over the top, but is in my opinion, almost the perfect sessionable IPA of all the Texas craft breweries. Drink it fresh on tap and revel in a delicious concoction.

Poured on tap. Bright, pungent nose of citrusy hops. Color is a rich gold with very little head or lace. Taste -- grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit, but still in balance with a light malted toastiness. Drank quickly and was very refreshing.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is citrus hops. The flavor is citrus hops with some nice caramel malts to add a little balance. Medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

On tap at Petrol Station. Darn good IPA. Hoppy, sweet malts, stickyness and a clean finish that leaves you wanting a few pints more.

(Growler) Pours orange with nice thick head and lasting great lace. Nose of oranges, bight hops with an oily body. Taste of oranges, lightly bitter hops that are very fresh and this is super drinkable.
