3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

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.

Thanks to someone for sharing this bottle at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting.
The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of sweet orange and pine notes, with some nice caramel and biscuit notes mixed in. The beer smells very balanced. The flavor has a lot of bitter pine and orange notes, as well as a little bit of biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a great IPA, but fairly drinkable overall. Glad I got to try it.
