COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flavor swoops in (cue EAGLE SCREAM), grabs you by the face and flies you through the hop rainbow. At the peak of the ride it swoops back to earth and gently drops you back on your bar stool where you are refreshed, excited and ready to ride again. Itís hoppy, bold and American. More bitter than a Cleveland Cavs Fan.
Hops: Summit, Columbus, Centennial, Amarillo
Malts: Pils, C-40, C-60, Wheat
Yeast: American Ale

Aroma: not much there for an ipa, though there is some citrus. Appearance: looks good for style. Taste: very light on hops, more in the style of a pale ale. Palate: medium mouthfeel. Overall: not an ipa, not enough hops. More in the style of a pale ale.

Enjoyed on tap at Beerland in Austin, TX prior to seeing Radioactivity which I'm really excited about. Man this place is dark. Appearance is a bright gold with a thin white head. Aroma is rich in hops, wavering between light citrus and whole cone. Taste goes down lightly bitter and slightly refreshing. Overall a decent IPA.

lb4lb (2214) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours orange, with offwhite head. Smell is hoppy and more piny than fruity I thought. Taste is pretty hoppy, bitter, and piny with some fruitiness. Pretty good IPA, and strong flavor. Enjoyable.

erickok (3171) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 10, 2014
Copper body, mostly clean. Very pleasant clean bitterness, bit citric and herbal in appeal. Tasty bitterness but a bit too carbonated. Either way that or the malts are too light to balance out. Can keep drinking this long time. (Can at Moonshine Austin and on tap at The Jackalope)

Chadski4 (70) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Copper gold in color with a smallish, but long lasting head. Floral nose with hoppy bitter flavor that dissipates quickly.

rdenney18 (102) - Lawton, Iowa, USA - DEC 28, 2013
12 oz can. Refreshing ipa. Doesnt have the maltiness that some get. Pours golden and is very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty mediocre IPA. I like a lot of Austin Beer Works offerings, but this one isn't very impressive. Needs a little more bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good ipa. Hoppie yet somewhat light. Nothing out of ordinary but good. Austin beers going down smooth

CarloOG (57) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours copper orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and flowers. Slight citrus flavor up front with a smooth bitter finish.

docsteigs (500) - Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Lean and mean IPA. Great pour with nose of hops on the floral-flower side. Taste is very well balanced with pleasant dry finish. Great IPA.

Good malty base with a nice hoppiness and slight citrus note. Itís an IPA that actually refreshes, and it works well in hot and humid Texas.
