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.

ansermadide (1524) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Dark, amber-orange color, mostly clear with a bright white head. Low carbonation. Aroma is fantastic... fresh, seriously piney hops dominate. Although itís 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. Itís 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.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2012
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.

AmEricanbrew (5870) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap. Clear amber color with ivory foam. Big dank spicy, pine hop aromas with some caramel. medium body. Nice pine, spicy hop flavors on a solid pale malt base, nicely bitter finish--very good

crossovert (7588) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Very nice one, very white grapey, not too high bitterness. Reminds me of a Sauvin -hopped beer.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap at brewpub
Pours an average amber with a nose of leaves soaked in hop juice. Flavor is creamy hops and orange rind. Velvety on the tongue. Tasty.
