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.

AndresTM (306) - Vienna, - 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.

Weezel (174) - Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Nice color pour that is cloudy and bright copper. Aromas of watermelon, cucumber and pine. Lacks hop character and malt is good but over abundant compared to the relatively weak hops. Some nice resin and pine in the background. Wish it was more in tune to an IPA.

Tonkun (774) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Tap at Houston beer fest. Orange copper pour with a medium head. Citrus, pine, soda. Refreshing medium body with a well balanced sweet bitter finish. Nice

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Hazy dull light amber. Not pulling much aroma on this. Stale cheesy hop character with a little bit of caramel malts.

stxoil (14) - Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours a deep golden amber with an off-white head. Citrus and pine on the nose. Taste is mostly piney hops but well balanced by malty backbone. A real nice drinkable IPA without being too bitter.

Have I had too many IPAs? Is there a way to tell? How can one ever be certain? I do know I went through two six packs of this and went back and forth between liking it and not caring much for it. Certainly does have some hops in it, no doubting that.

texrx (21) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a hazy amber with a 2 finger egg shell head that lingers. Nice lacing. Smells of piney hops, malt and some sweetness. Tastes of piney and citrus hops with some sweetness and a nice malt backbone. This IPA has good hop character w/o being a massive bitter hop bomb on the palate. Nice IPA!
