3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle - pale yellow with a nice white head. Floral hops aroma. Tons of hop flavor. Enough malt to back it up, but a little more would be nice. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
100 IBU? Had to try a bottle, and unfortunately amongst a drawn out bar crawl featuring mainly Lone Stars. Resiny, stanky pine hop aroma, which covers some stale, beaten down malt. Very bitter, also starchy sweet and crunchy. Heavy carpet bomber of the palate. Pretty good, but mad hops doesnít always make an IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Opal Divineís Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a cloudy gold with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of hops, quite catty, piney & resiny as well, backed by caramel malt. Flavour is all hops, piney, catty, resiny -- I love it, itís all about the hops. Big, long bitter finish. Medium bodied. A great start to my Austin trip and a great IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tropical and citrus hop aroma. Tastes a bit sweet, but if this is 8% then thatís totally understandable. This beer has come a long way.

This is one excellent IPA and itís from Texas. The mix of hops give it a crazy mix of flavors and aromas and since itís local, the hops flavor is fresh which gives it extra goodness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Flying Saucer in Austin. This brew pours a clear dark golden color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with a grassy hops character and flavors of earthy malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Above average overall.
