In radio at The Holy Grail Pub. Puts a rich copper with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a light body and medium carbonation. Cheers!

12oz can. Strong copper color, clear pour with good lacing and a moderate persistent head. Aroma is mild, a few notes of spicy hop and light-ish malt. Taste is good, too, with no discernible off notes and a pleasant roundness of flavor that includes a few different varieties of hops but no dominant ones. Good mixed-hop IPA. Recommended

12 oz. can as pictured. Copper color, lasting head from a steady carbonation level. Even when warm the aroma is mild. Floral hints, weak pale malt. Flavor is sweet with a light hops bite.
Balance is decent. Floral and pine with a mellow, lasting bitterness after the sip. Simple but pretty well made. Easy to find these cans all over Texas.

Citrus taste. Nice bitter hoppy taste. Nice texture and weight. Great palette and aftertaste. I could drink a few of these theyíre great.

Pours a hazy golden brown from the can with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma of nice citrus and earthy hops over faint biscuit malt. Taste is more balanced, hops up front that fall to nice bitterness and malt finish. Pretty standard IPA, but well executed.

This brew starts soft with earthy notes and slight citrus. Watch out because here come the hops. Great beer love the bitter follow through

Draft. Aroma of guava. Dense, thick lace. Lots of tropical fruit with some caramel and toffee malts. Is sweet, but resists too sweet. Pithy finish. Very nice.

Tap at The Ginger Man in Austin with commonshawn. Very appealing deep orange color with a beautiful full finger of head. Slight cloudiness. Aroma of hops and tropical citrus fruit with a sweetness that is seriously enjoyable. Taste also has an undercurrent of citrus resin sweetness that blends well with the bite of the hops. Oily mouthfeel. Aftertaste is mostly bitter from the hops but itís relatively clean finish. Very solid beer...almost a double IPA.

Can packaged on February 24, 2015 brought back from San Antonio somewhere. This is a pretty clear amber color with a white head. Itís on the darker end of the IPA spectrum, more like an east coast IPA in appearance. I canít help but notice all the trash talk of bitterness and huge hop aroma on the can. Well, where is it? Sure some of that is gonna fade, but this beer is only 47 days old. It should still have some punch to it. The aroma is sweet with notes of grass clippings, pine, berries and soil. Palate is pretty dense and a little sticky. I canít help but notice the generous caramel malt character. There is nothing at all unenjoyable in the way of flavor, but it is underwhelming for an American made IPA. There is a sturdy, sweet malt base with a balanced hop flavor adding mostly pine and earth. This is reasonable take on an English style IPA, but given my upbringing I much prefer American IPAs. Karbach might be more honest describing this beer as a balanced and full-flavored, old school IPA than trying to talk up the supposed "hopadillo" onslaught. Iíd also like to note that this beer is scored a 90 while so many vibrant and in vogue Denver IPAs are scored in the 70s to low 80s. Itís interesting to see the different scenes on this site.
