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.

Clear amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly soft. Creamy malt base. Mild tangerine - orange hops, fruity but no real bitterness. Neutral finish. All right but a little bit on the polite side.

On tap at the Hay Merchant. It’s a lightly hazy dark golden beer with a dense, finger thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is very tropical and flowery, some pineapple, peaches and pine cones. Some malty sweetness too. There’s sweetness in the flavor too, balanced by a pleasant bitterness. Pine cones, peaches and some pineapple. Medium body, very soft on the carbonation. Bitter, fruity finish. Not the most exiting IPA I’ve had, but it doesn’t taste bad and it’s going down easily. 130825

Hazy dull light amber. Not pulling much aroma on this. Stale cheesy hop character with a little bit of caramel malts.

(Draught) Pours a hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pine, grass, caramel, and herbs. Flavor of herbs, grass, earth, caramel, bread, and citrus with a dry, bitter finish

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Hazed amber pour with a white head. The hop profile is fairly pine forward with a bit of oily citrus and some herbal notes. A fair amount of malt and toffee sweetness, though. The flavor is a bit watery, despite a fairly bold aroma. Some bread and toffee malt notes, a bit of toast, and a light bitterness of pine. Definitely some citrus peel, a light floral note, and some herbal flavors, too.

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.

deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 4, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer Houston. Pours a near clear amber with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces thickly. Aroma has notes oh grass and grapefruit, with a bit of resin and bread backing. Flavor starts with grass and bread but includes a growing grapefruit note for a bitter finish.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Can:   Orange side of amber, small to moderate white frothy head, decent lacing.   Soft citrus/pine based nose.   Similar tongue, light sweetness, clean, good balance.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft bitterness lingers.   As it warms it becomes a bit dry and pithy.   Average, but clean and solid!   Thanks Bill!
