Standard IPa. Highlights the hop bite. Pretty balanced here, but unexciting.

Draft. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with fair lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at the Gaylord location - Pours copper-gold with an off-white head. There’s a mild citrus hop aroma. The flavor has strong bitterness backed by a good medium bodied malt profile. The expected long bitter finish is there too. It’s fairly good. It doesn’t stand out for IPAs, but it’s works alright.

Have bought growlers of this because it was so fresh. Decent IPA with hops in both aroma and taste. Medium body and head. Amber color.

[On-tap at Big Buck] Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is grassiness mixed with grapefruit and light malt. Not great right away, and the malt clashes a little, but it did improve over time. Taste is light citrus, perfumey, floral notes, and then very malt heavy. Medium-thick mouthfeel with a long finish. A malt heavy IPA that was decent, but maybe a little different than what I was looking for at the time.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty dark color for an IPA, hoppy nose/aroma as expected. Decently hoppy flavored, a bit of malt present. Probably my favorite beer that I have tried at Big Buck.

(From a 5 Liter mini-keg brought back from Michigan for me) Nice pine hop aroma, pours a cloudy brown/amber, with a big fluffy white head. Wow... great hop character, with just enough malts to balance it out. Nice long pine hop finish, a bit of thickness to the mouthfeel. I wish I could get this around me on a regular basis.

On tap at brewery. Aroma is floral, grassy, citrus hopps. Murky apple cider in appearance. Starts sweet and finishes bitter. Med/full bodied. Good aroma but just something a little off on the palate and flavor.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from tap in Grapevine, TX. Pour produced a beer with a cloudy amber body and a small off white head which quickly diminished. This IPA was fragrant with floral and pine notes, which accompanied the bittersweetness as I tasted it. Though hoppy (as it should be,) there was minimal aftertatste with a hint of alcohol. This was a medium-bodied brew that was strong and smooth, a good IPA.
