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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed in the Dallas area while on business. Cask version. Aroma of rich malts, caramel, slight hops, might be skewered since its cask conditioned. Appearance huge white head, very cloudy gold. Taste more citrusy hops, I can sense more hops than malt but it tastes more like a hoppy APA than an IPA. Definite yeast presence, kind of doughy, I like it a lot but I’m not in love. Would definitely have again not conditioned.
