Some ipa’s just don’t work for me and this is one of them. Decent aroma of pine and honey. Nice palate. Taste was a bitter up front hop bomb with no balance from malts

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Pours white head with a nice orange body. Aroma of banana and citrus followed by a creamy hop taste with a nice punch of sweetness before the resinated aftertaste. Great local beer for other people from the Austin area. Great beer in general. Compare this to a Pedernales classic.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really good nutty smell and taste. True IPA taste, from what little I know. Not one to try first, due to the bitterness, but that’s a preference to me.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very hazy copper orange pour. Medium white head. Very dank aroma. Pine and citrus from hops as well. Medium to thick mouthfeel. Flavor follows the aroma. Dank hops come out first. Mid taste is more mild citrus hops, and finish is actually somewhat sweet given the amount of hops.
