Bottled sample from Specks in San Antonio. Could be one of the best beers I have ever had. Pours golden with medium head. Great aroma, and very complex taste. Loved it

Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Earthy hops, medium malty sweetness, and a floral and earthy bitter finish. Not that good.

22oz bottle split with a friend. Served in a snifter. Decent IPA, not as good as Dogfish Head or Sierra Nevada individual IPAs

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75l bottle shared with Inbreak @ the Ginger Man NYC. A light blurry golden one this and it has a nice medium sized just off-white light bubbly top. Not to extreme on the nose but it get a nice strawberry sweetness with green hops, pine cones, quite fresh on the nose, perhaps a bit cold but fresh. Nice light hoppy flavors. It has a oily mouthfeel and a below average carbonation level. Light fruity, kinda blend in a way. Some white fruit meat with a little bit of something spicy. Tangerines are mentioned and I agree. Not bad in any way, but perhaps a bit mellow? Had hoped or at least expected something a bit more from these two great brewers. 19.06.2013

750ml bottle ordered online. Pours a dark amber and smells of caramel, citrus and some hops. Very interesting aroma, pretty nice. Taste is smooth, with well balanced malt and hops. Not a typical double/ imperial IPA, but very drinkable and enjoyable. Would have preferred a bit more bitterness.

On tap at the Falling Rock May 16th. Pours an amber gold with significant head and lace. Aroma of biscuits, oats, amber malts, floral hops. Moderate carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Flavors of grassy hops, minerals, funky fruit. Overall flavorful and bold with some astringency...tasty but not delicious.

Caramel color, thick head. Sweet hop smell; not overpowering. Caramel malts, crisp taste and even finish. Could last longer. Smooth tastes like low ABV.
