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.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2013
On tap at the Hay Merchant. Itís 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. Thereís 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 Iíve had, but it doesnít taste bad and itís going down easily. 130825

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, 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.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Bronze. Thin head. Not the brightest hop, which I noted in my initial review in 2014. Moderate caramel and a hint of grapefruit. Good bitterness.

Ferris (12729) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Draft - Skunky piney hops. Cloudy copper with a rich beige head. Tastes just like it smells, with a very well balanced bitterness and sweetness. A great IPA.

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2016 Can in Houston. It pours clear amber with a decent beige head. The aroma is sweet, sticky, pine, resin, toffee, caramel, sweet lemon and green grassy vibe. The taste is bitter - sweet, piney, resin, caramel, grassy, mild astringency, wood, earth, lemon parfait, pithy with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. A bit malty and old-school. Ok for what it is, but there are plenty better out there. 3.2. Update: can from the guys at Karbach (thanks). The beer is crisper, brighter, cleaner and has some orange citrus peel. How it should taste. 3.5
