3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tan and clear with a good head and lace.
The malt base is ample and there’s plenty of grapefruity hops. There’s also a nice bit of sweetness that gives this beer an extra dimension, it’s quite not as dry as some IPAs.
Body is medium, moderately carbonated, and damn easy to drink. A nice medium bitterness finishes, and the moderate level of alcohol doesn’t leave you too toasted after drinking the whole bomber!
This is a fine beer. I think I liked the Soul Doubt IPA better, but anytime I get something from Freetail, I’m always pleased. I have to go that way today, hopefully they’re open when I pass by so I can pick up something else to try!

Tap flight at the brewery. Cloudy apricot color pour with minimal white head. Papaya, mango, and grapefruit nose. Taste is similar with a touch of cereal and resin. Moderately creamy mouthfeel. Good.

proper elocution of what makes a San Antonio IPA, I am left to presume as it certainly tastes mighty fine to me.. Both draught and bottle hold up. Always glad I make it to Freetail. Subtle brilliance.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark, amber-orange color, mostly clear with a bright white head. Low carbonation. Aroma is fantastic... fresh, seriously piney hops dominate. Although it’s only 60 IBU, its nose reminds me of a double IPA with a nice grainy and hop-forward experience that has a whisper of what seems like alcohol. An excellent balance. It’s also much like a double IPA in the mouth... relatively thin, strongly-hopped and very green - much like green hay. It has a very complex palate for a single-hop beer, and is easy going down. Strong and hop-satisfying. Delicious.

YES. This is one of the best, cleanest, most hop accented (without yeast or malt character interfering) beers that I have had here. This is actually the best beer (of only 3 now) that I have had made with these FF hops. Well restrained bitterness which prevents a gripping astingency, but gives all the juicy hop goodness a hophead needs.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice one, very white grapey, not too high bitterness. Reminds me of a Sauvin -hopped beer.

Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a small white head that lasts and leaves decent lace. Aromas are hop forward with citrus, tangerine, grapefruit and light pine. Medium malty. Odd chlorine note to the aroma. Light esters. Flavors are of pine, resin, apple like esters, tangerine with medium malt. Lively bubbles, medium dry and a touch earthy.
