COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, rich IPA features Simcoe hops which give it both a fruity, piney hop nose and a clean, ringing bitterness. IN-between, the malt flavor is slightly caramel for a touch of malt sweetness. This IPA is well-balanced and very expressive with hops.

Brilliant amber pour with off white head and good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit peel, wheat bread, earth. Fuller bodied, slightly creamy with toasted bread, grapefruit and slight herbal flavours. Finish is a lingering mild bitterness. Okay.

Nicely balanced, sharp tasting IPA. Hop forward, pine, some grapefruit. More caramel malt balance as it warms. Nice hoppy aroma, mild but present.

Pint at Ashley’s on 5/16/14. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, pine and grass. Malty and grassy flavor with an earthy hop finish.

12oz brown bottle. A clear orangey pour. Thick white foam on top and good looking clingy lacing. Nose has sharp grapefruit and also pine notes. Taste has a clean malt base with grapefruity hops on top. Ends dry and clean, bitterness is a bit short lasting. Body is light, ok carbonation. A decent IPA that drinks easily.

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out some nice piney hops with a bready malt backbone. Flavour is very bready malt heavy, with almost a rye-like quality, with very moderate hoppiness. Seems more like a hoppy pale ale to me. All in all, well-balanced and drinkable, just nothing special.

Bottle. Pours a dark gold/amber color with a tan head. Nice citrus and pine hop aroma and taste with the bitterness nicely balanced by a malt sweetness. Great, enjoyable IPA.

SlimHabib (140) - California, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle pour. Slightly cloudy golden amber in color. Decent head and good lacing. Crisp medium body. Starts sweet, but has a lingering bitter aftertaste. Well put together beer, but I don't think it it my favorite style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, light fruit, and grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bit of caramel malt. Decent balance, but more of an average IPA.

bottle. Golden with small head. Pretty standard IPA, but a little above average. Light malt body with moderate hops. Nice pine.

Rating #1024- March 17, 2014 - 1oz sample, can shared with customers. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head, decent retention. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Smooth mouthfeel, lots of grassy, spicy hops on the palate but very well balanced, citrusy sweetness of grapefruit meets a sharp dry-hop bitterness. Solid IPA.
