Draft somewhere in my blurry visit to Austin. Definitely my favorite find in town. Solid, very citric IPA. Orange and amber, solid all the way around, definitely what Americans look for in an IPA. Well done. (#5239, 9/1/2013)

On tap @ Hopdoddy, SO-CO...Delicious! Lighter than some of the other local IPAs offered...The intent was not to over-load prior to the burger!! Back to beer:
P: Served on tap in a chilled-goblet...
A: Golden-orange, filtered, leaving a nice lacing 1.5" head...GREAT!
T: Bright, clean nice hops up front...good tasty citrus (grapefruit), along with some other nice lingering pine notes....
P: Medium carbonation, medium bodied, great for the style :~)
O: One of the best austin (or if you prefer TX beers)... I’ve had since moving to TX in April ’13....competes with the best of the NW IPA for sure...go ahead try one, it won’t disappoint...Bucket head ipa (thirsty planet brewing...which to be honest is getting a ’BAD-RAP’ at a rating of 89/74...they should at least be in the low ’90s...)...Also, lost coast ipa (Real Ales/in Blanco TX) does a VERY FINE ipa!!....Chasin’ cheers :~)

I featured this beer on an episode of Locapour: http://locapour.tv/austin/512ipa
It’s a great beer. One of the must haves in Austin. You can find it around town at just about any place that believes customers deserve to drink great craft beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is a beautiful lions mane orange. Aroma is of fresh fruit. Taste is of apricots and peaches. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and then the bitterness fades in at the end and lasts for the aftertaste in which the apricot and peaches taste still remains. Overall a well balanced beer with a great fruity flavor and adequate alcohol presence.

Poured at Stubbs cloudy golden orange. Sweet light citrus aroma. Big on the bitter pine. Medium mouthfeel. A decent beer but a bit one dimensional.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(draft @ The Esquire - San Antonio, TX) Hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Bitter and grassy hop aroma with some mild citrus. Flavor is definitely more the dry and bitter hop than the juicy citrus hops. Smooth however and easy drinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little hoppy and floral. Taste is a little bit bitter, and it has a nice bite. Not too bad.

On tap at Holy Grail and had side by side with Franconia dipa. This had less aroma (slight pine) and much less hops but wat was thicker with more lacing. Well balanced but the lack of hop flavor made me question ipa relevance. Still enjoyed drinking it
