On draft at IAH, yay Houston! Poured a light orange, slight head. Aroma of citric hops, grapefruit, tangerine, slight pine, slight caramel malt. Flavor matched. A very solid APA, managed to be good in this category without straying into IPA territory.

Austin, Tx - Opal Divine’s Marina - on tap. Slightly hazy medium copper pour, sticky snow white head with nice lacing. Spruce aroma, hints of wintergreen. Solid IPA flavor with some solid citrus bitterness, a touch of caramel sweetness, some nectarine - like fruitiness. Full, rich mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2016 On tap, poured into a pint. A pleasant citrus blossom note comes forth (peach) first, dampens, then follows with a distinct fruit stripes note supported by a subtle caramel. It’s a brilliantly clear, yellow amber hue topped by a white, dense soap head that has good lace and retention. The beer is a balanced medium sweet and bitter. The texture is oily with a soft, fuzzy carbonation and medium body. Juicy citrus hits the palate first, followed by a finish that’s crisp and grassy with notes of sweet grapefruit. The aftertaste is clean with just a light spice and a mild, cloying, waxy character and flavor.

Tap in a pint glass at Brew Exchange in Austin. Concept is very cool albeit not original. Execution of pricing is in question. Aroma is hops and pretty fresh. Taste is a standard pale ale fare but still enjoyable. Hops and pine but not overwhelming. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy to drink. Nothing too original but worth a try.
