3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From Errl in a trade-thanks, Chris! Very deep brown orange. Awesome DIPA nose: juicy tropical fruit and orange citrus hops. Unfortunately, flavor fell off for me from the nose. Extremely bitter piney hops. Odd because it’s also very malty with a burnt caramel streak but bitterness is out of whack. Unbalanced.

Tap at Freetail. The look is clear, off white head, and bronze in color. The smell is hoppy, so hoppy, saturated pine and citrus, nice, slight cleaning solution, and grass. The taste is not as hoppy, pine, fruit, biting, ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Orange pour with a semi-large tan head. The aroma is a mixture of pine and orange citrus with a touch of biscuit malt, but overall, this is a really hoppy smelling beer. The flavor is similar. I get a good dose of orange citrus and other tropical fruit as well as some biscuit malt. The beer has a nice mixture of sweet biscuit malt and a bitterness from the hops. The alcohol is also noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Pete and Gail. Thanks! Pours an amber-brown with haze and a thin white head. Malty aroma, hops, leather, dark breads and a little booze. Taste is similar with the malt profile balancing fairly well with the hops. Slight pine. A little too much body for my taste. Medium carbonation. Dry, somewhat bitter finish. Kind of plain Jane.

22 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter thanks to Errl. Pours a hazy amber with a light beige head of foam. Decent lacing. The aroma is pine and flower pedals. Earthy and near musty malt profile. Mildly bitter throughout the taste and then dries out quickly in the finish.

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, and resin hops, biscuit and cookie malt with pear esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great hop nose followed by a nice floral hop forward flavor. Very refreshing on the palate with a lingering taste of a fresh piney woods after a rain. A very decent representation from one of my favorite craft brewries in San Antonio.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewery, poured hazy golden orange hue w/ thin head. Big sweet hoppy aromas. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a big bitter finish. Taste is predominately grapefruit with a light sweet mango. Drinks more like a big west coast IPA not a IIPA. It was my favorite of the night. Full bodied, creamy mouth feel, and a lingering bitter finish.
