3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
June 2015. Travelled to a terminal that wasn’t based on food stamps. Lost in Dallas somewhere but found a borderline mexican foodery with actual taps I give a shit about. Maybe Qdoba? That probably isn’t right as it looks like random letters pulled out of a bag. Beeeer- interesting. Bold yet simple and odd. Heated hops, dark caramel, pepper that isn’t pepper spice that I sometimes find in ips’s, darker caramel, light citrus, lighter pine, not sweet but slighly berry like. Hops really catching up and imparting a very heavy after taste. Extra points for meanness.

On draft at Frankie's in Fort Worth. A rich amber color with almost no head. Does not really taste like an IPA - tastes like IPA crossed with a wheat bear. Caramel, some pine and a bubble gum-esque quality. All up front, kind of mellows - this is not really for me, but I could see others digging it

Pours a dark and cloudy brown/amber color with a lot of foam, more than any beer i’ve had yet and has medium amount of carbonation. Has a bit of a floral/ earthy and malt aroma. Has a strong but great taste, a bit of a citrus bitter taste, you can also tell that theres yeast in it. Leaves the tongue a little dry afterwards but overall a good beer.

Draft at DFW airport. Murky copper. Little head retention. Nice sipper with a hint of wildness maybe even a little herb. Decent. (#5953, 4/3/2015)

12 fl. oz. bottle, thanks Chumly! Mostly clear orange copper, tan foam settles and lasts. Aroma is more floral, citrus, yeast and mild c-malt. Lightly bitter, slightly floral hop taste, citric, faint spice, lean toasted caramel malt, some Belgian yeast. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Surprisingly tasty subtle hybrid. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

A hazed orange amber ipa with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with grassy floral hops, resinous character, grapefruit pulp, very nice. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with loads of resinous floral hops, treacle, clover field, nice and balanced. On tap at gas money, DFW.

Good, not great. I LIKE the hop-forward style; I also appreciate Belgian yeast. This beer is just a little of both. Not impressive enough to rate highly.
