When I first tried this brew I was expecting hops, this was because in austin there are a lot of hop heads. This one to me is more of an east coast or british style ipa. The hops seem to be different than your normal west coast 4 c hops. Overall a nice representation of what Ipa can be.

Tap at Draught House, Austin, TX.
Pours cheddar orange with an aroma of apricot-infused grapefruit. Flavor is Sunny Delight grapefruit and orange juice. Average mouthfeel. This beer wants to be good, and I’m sure it will be as more batches are made. Keep it up.

I am really wanting to say good things. So happy to have another brewery in town and would very much like to meet the brewer. The pint I had and even more the one my friend ordered had a haze beyond a chill haze I’ve seen before. Think perhaps the filtering was off or this keg had way too much yeast that made its way through. It definitely lessened the experience as though the yeast didn’t overpower the hops, it sure did make the whole a funky battle.
Please work on this and I’ll keep my fingers crossed and keep coming back to see what’s happening.
