3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale amber with a frothy white head. Moderate lacing. Nose is a hop bouquet of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Very well-balanced taste. This brew is decidedly in the East Coast style of IPA, in that the malt profile is quite evident and compliments the hop profile quite nicely.

12 oz can from tavour. The hop profile has a bit of old machanic oil and grease and hop resin. Little guava to round it out. Slightly juicy and really complex. Really dig it.

Draft at the Nook. Pours opaque opaque golden amber with a fizzy off white head. Smells dank, like coriander, basil, leather, and barnyard. Tastes like grapefruit hops, lemon, coriander and dry leather.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The first thing that hit me as I opened the can was the smell of grapefruit. This is remarkable for a beer that was not yet poured. The beer came out of the can an into a mug, and it looked quite cloudy and had an amber body. The look was somewhat similar to a wheat beer to my eyes. The aroma that was evident while the beer was still in the can was much the same in the glass, with lots of grapefruit and some pine resin. The taste was very citric, with the grapefruit dominating the palette. There was some sweetness towards the end of the sip before the long, bitter, aftertaste kicked in. Great juicy feel to the body, which was a touch below medium dense. Haven’t seen the offerings from this brewery in the store before, but look forward to tasting more of them, as this one is a winner.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A great big hoppy aroma that sets the stage for what follows. Really enjoyed this one. Could have sat down for another, but lunch wasn’t an all-day affair. A bit of citrus, but I picked up more of a piney, grassy taste. My favorite on my TX trip.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at WoB Arlington.
While I think this is not so much dank as tropical, I found it a really tasty IPA. Aroma is pine and tropical fruit, and the flavor is juicy tropical hops with a clean finish.
