Thanks to crajun for sending this one in trade!
Slightly hazy amber pour smallish off-white head.
Hop aroma of pine resin and citrus.
The flavor has a big malt presence. Sweetness that comes through a generous amount of hops.. There are a few breweries out there that would sell this as their IIPA.

Pours a clear copper-golden color with a sudsy, off white head. Pine and citrus nose. Pliny the Elder-like bouquet. Powdery crispness to the texture. A bit of cannabis-like umami underlies and provides structure to the pine/grapefruit hop flavors. The perfect balance of sweetness from the malt efficiently does itís job without interference at any point during the process. Excellent effort.

On tap at the brewery on Halloween. I donít get a lot of the tropical notes that the tasting description seems to indicate, but it is certainly hoppy. Smooth and drinkable, but slightly boozy considering the low-ish ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a hazy reddish orange color with a foamy head response. Aroma is very hoppy, citrus, resin, tree sap and lots of sweetness. Flavor is also a nice hoppy mixture. Good citrus flavor and hop resin. Finishes very flavorful. One of my favorites from DEBC.

Aroma of piney citrus hops. Very good IPA look. Taste is well balanced, a little on the malty side w a touch of Munich(?). Clean but somewhat heavy finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy bright copper with a thin foamy white head. Nose is rich with dank resinous NW hops, rich ruby grapefruit, and amazing amounts of caramel. Flavor has much in the way of floral and grapefruity dankness, but the bitterness is restrained enough to enjoy it easily, and it helps that itís citrusy/caramelly sweet. Full and balanced and lovely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a half-inch foamy head. Burnt orange (it is a Texas beer, after all). Faint citrus and orange nose, with a touch of hops. Those same things carry over to taste, with a bit of pine. Nothing big at all, certainly not like the hoppy IPAs I usually enjoy. Extremely well-balanced. I liked this one a lot.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Brewed. Yellowish-copper color. Citrus and pine nose. From there it gets unusual... starts fizzy, moves thru some pine and citrus hops and finishes with acute tartness that stays in the mouth. And then maybe even more fizzy. Quite unusual. Also, fizzy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Eric. Pours a hazy golden with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is piney, herbal, odd citrus something going on. Taste is a little too malty for my IPA taste. Some orange rind, zest and pith. Not horrible but doesnít really jump out as a very hoppy IPA. Not overly bitter or sweet.
