COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in West Texas, where solitude goes to be alone—a place we’d rather be. Because when you head off into the West Texas vastness, you discover new things about who you are, and douse your thirst from a can. It’s a microbrew, from a place that’s anything but.

Tap at brewery. Pours light Amber, white head with good retention. Aroma is floral, interesting almost sage like, a bit of caramel sweetness. Taste is earthy, pine, sage, a bit of faintly toasted malts. Not bad. Moderately bitter. Clean.

Rich amber color. Clear. Barely a white film . No lace. Smells like a beer at first the gets malty real quick. Definitely east coast style.

This beer makes me happy and sad. Happy that Steve Anderson based it on a recipe he created for Waterloo. Sad that he is now gone. Tasted like it may have had tears mixed in it. Drinking it and toasting with it as dear friends reminisced about Steve at his memorial. Drinking it with BBQ and other sides while still talking about Steve and all other things. RIP, amigo

On draft at Barley-Hoppers. Pours a very murky darkish gold with a lasting, creamy, white head and strong lacing. Nose is root beer, medicinal... not what you would expect from an ipa. Taste has similar cream soda/root beer characteristics with little bitterness or hoppiness, leaves a little sweet aftertaste. Nice slick mouthfeel, good carbonation. Tasty, but I wouldn’t call it an ipa.

Can poured to pint glass. Golden/copper, small, constant bubbles. Piney, sappy hops, agave? Just enough malt profile while not being bitter, really refreshing finish.

AirForceHops (6079) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2015
12 oz can while standing in line at LA Barbecue, Austin, TX. Aroma is citrus, mild pine, malt. After drinking a few Lone Stars, the bitterness was quite lingering of course it is also 92 degrees at 11 am. Anyhow the overall flavor was big on citrus with good malt support. Has a lightly drying texture. Or maybe the drying comes from this Texas heat, not sure.

Draft to imperial pint at Craft and Social El Paso. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, mild citrus and resiny hops, light toast, mild to moderate bitterness, some additional fruit character, quaffable ipa on draft.
