2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Whip In.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of orange citrus notes, with a little bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is similar at first, but there are also some odd notes. I get some orange notes, but there is also a dirty character which makes the beer a bit difficult to drink. There is a decent amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours from the can with a large, creamy head that hangs around for a few minutes, leaving behind healthy lacing. The beer is a barely-cloudy light copper with a little carbonation.
Aroma: not a ton there, but a bit of pine comes up.
Taste: great, great stuff! Of course, this isn't Pliny or anything, but this is basically my Platonic ideal of a pale ale. Just enough piney bitterness to prick the tongue, with a layer of crisp maltiness below.
I initially didn't think much of this brewery due to their straightforward name, but between this and their Alt, they have jumped to the top of my Austin brewery list. Keep it up, guys!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Clear, copper colored, light eggshell colored head. The smell is nice, citrus, hops, veggies, slight caramel. Taste is some bitterness, fruits, grassy, hops, and ok.

On draft at The Barber Shop - Pours a deep golden color with a white head and some lacing present. The aroma is citrusy and the initial tastes supports that impression. The citrus theme continues with a a long aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium-light to medium. Would drink again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Amber with a firm white head. Aroma of biscuit and malt with light caramel. On the maltier side of the style with very mild hop presence. Flavor is flat and short-lived. Bodied. Certainly drinkable but unimpressive. Lingering astringency.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge floral, grassy bouquet. Easy drinking, high aromatic epintensity without huge butter notes on the back end. This is what I lie an IPA to be. Huge aroma. Donít know if I would class this as a pale ale though. Plus, itís in a can!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber , thin white head. Pine cones in the nose with a firm malt background. Balanced malt sweetness is slightly overpowered by steady hop bitterness. Very fizzy at the end. Solid American pale ale, quite hoppy.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of grass, soap, and herbs. Flavor of florals, herbs, tangy orange, and grain with a moderately bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample bottle. Pours a hazy honey-orange with a high, long-lasting white head. Nose is grapefruit, but with a sweet edge -- thereís almost some berry notes in it, as well as thyme and rosemary. Rich on the palate, with a citrus front and then a bitter finish, as well as a touch of that same sweetness -- but just a bit. Hoppier-than-thou types wonít care for it, but as far as Iím concerned itís a well-balanced, restrained pale ale.
