On tap - Gingerman Plano.
Orangish, amber pour - wonderful white head. Delicious aroma of vanilla, apricot, and citrusy hops. Good amount of malt aroma as well. Flavor is very smooth with a slight bitterness coming through on the the back end. Very balanced and easily one of the best TX brewed IPAs out there. Wish they would bottle already!

Pours a hazy gold into the glass with a white head. Aroma is big citrus. Flavor is a bit of bready grain with a touch of caramel and a big citrusy bitterness. Great medium bodied palate makes this easy to toss back and enjoy. I believe this is the best IPA being made in Texas.

On tap at the Holy Grail. Poured glowing, amber/orange body topped with an ivory head that was very sticky and lasting, leaving nice lacing. Aromas of orange/tangerine into grapefruits, orange/melone sweetness. Flavors of piney hops, caramel sweetness, tangerine-based hops, floral and lightly fruity. Medium mouthfeel and a nice, lingering moderate bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Flying Saucer Houston. Hazy orange with a small but very persistent off-white head. The nose has lots of lemon/pineapple, along with some sweetness from malt. Hops are, of course, dominant in the flavor, providing a strong and sharp pineapple/citrusy bitterness throughout. A delicate malt sweetness helps to balance things out, but have no doubt that this is a hop-centered IPA. A little sticky on the palate with medium weight. Definitely a tasty IPA, and no obvious flaws to me in this one.
