COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper in color with ruby highlights, this Texas IPA has a strong citrus aroma with hints of earthiness and spice from the added European hops. Light berry fruits are perceived before giving way to citrusy hop character. Dry and quenching, this IPA is dry-hopped for added aromatic intensity.

Poured from can into DFH/SN IPA glass. Pours a clear orange color with a very nice thick off-white head. Moderate aroma is of citrus, pine, and pineapple. Taste is very hop forward and bitterness lingers on the tongue. After front taste fades, not much else to it. Average carbonation with a clean mouth feel. Leaves some lacing on the glass.

I love everyone on here rating beers after tasting a 'sample'. Please. Get yourself a pint and then review. I like it. I mean its $7 a sixer at HEB. Can't complain there. I think miller light is $5.99. Had in tap at Yardhouse in Houston and delicious. Hoppy. I could drink 6. Sessionable. A cheaper dales pale. Thanks Karbach! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden color with a lasting off white head. Some citrus peel and cracker aromas. This is a pretty fruity IPA with lots of apple sauce and berry flavors with some biscuit, orange peel, dirt and some spice in the finish. Seems pretty thin for its ABV. Not my favorite IPA.

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. Pours a clear copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is citrusy with hops and malt notes. Medium-bodied with a hoppy character of grapefruit and pine. Some bready malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

AndresTM (306) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 1, 2013
Green, fresh, mildly fruity aroma of pine, grapefruit, and even a bit of weed. The taste is appropriately bitter but very fresh and piney throughout. I had it side by side with the Stone IPA and I liked this one a lot more.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Golden copperish with a thin disspipating white head. Lovely nose of caramel and toffee with a citrusy/floal hop nose, but also with a whisper of grass. Flavor was a wonderful IPA ride, combining the best of british and american IPAs. Lots of sweet toffee and a little caramel maltiness building the base, with a combo of American and British hoppiness making a bitter and deliciously balanced hop tone. Some light resin and grapefruit team up with some grassy Kent Goldings with a classic, easy going personality.

Not bad. Not as astringent as the rodeo clown but manages to retain a bunch of its hopped richness. Great piney aroma.

Had a pint or two at the tour. Nice pale. It is pretty hoppy even for a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
