4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 :~)

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Hay Merchant Houston. I had heard great things about this, but honestly was underwhelmed. It was maltier than I like my IPAs. Not a great aroma. Just ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft into a shaker. Hoppy and sweet aroma. Slightly cloudy gold with thin white head. Nicely balanced. Hoppy but not overpowering. Orange, grapefruit, pine. Very smooth medium bodied. Clean finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very hoppy, sharp grassy and citric hops, some more resiny ones, crisp biscuit malts. Sharp bitterness too, but I dig it a lot, it just works in this American combo, with my smoked bbq meat. (On tap at Stubbs BBQ restaurant Austin)

On draft. Faint aroma of soap. Slightly bitter, no particular flavors. Lots of malt. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured a nice clear golden yellow with white head. A very well-made, crisp, clean IPA. Clean PNW-ish pine flavor, a little early. A little unbalanced on the hop end, but what do you expect from an IPA? Nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is a little lacking in clarity. Well balanced but I feel like I deserve more hops. Perhaps this keg is old? Otherwise decent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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)
