3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2012 Location: Draft at Ginger Man- Austin, 2/17/12
Aroma: It has a fairly subtle aroma of light malts, plus some citrus and floral hops
Appearance: The pour is a clear orange color, with a small white head, and medium lacing
Flavor: The taste is fairly balanced, citrus/caramel sweetness, some fairly bitter hop flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, it rounds out nicely, is decently smooth, and quite dry on the end palate
I found this one to be a solid IPA with a better taste then aroma. It wasn’t a spectacular example of the style, but it was solid enough...

On tap at the Gingerman in West U. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Piney hop aromas. A real nice IPA with good balance. Pine and citrus hop notes kept in check by a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Impressive...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pretty clear, dark golden-amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma, a little faint for the style, of pine, caramel, citrus and bread. The taste is malty with a nice moderate bitterness. Medium bodied. Somewhat mild, but a more than acceptable IPA.

On tap at the Highball in Austin. Out of season, apparently. Amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is a little citrus, grain, and a little bread. Taste is earthy, bitter, a faint amount of fruit, and a little grass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap - Vickery Park in Plano.
Deep golden orange color with a decent amount of white head. Smells delicious - lots of citrus hops with some pine and bready malt as well. Slightly sweet flavor with a malt backbone that keeps the bitterness at bay. One of my favorite Texas brewed IPAs.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Flying Saucer/Addison. Amber brew with an inviting visual. Super hoppy with a sharp metallic bite at the finish. Doesn’t seem as well balanced as it could be, unfortunately, I’m sure there’s a pile of quality ingredients in this ... (#4038, 12/14/2010)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Ginger Man Austin. Clear to hazy golden pour. Slight white head. Aroma of soft hops. Gentle floral notes that touch on lighter senses. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is easy-drinking hops with light citrus hops. Lemony flavor. Finishes slightly watery with some bitterness. Not too bad.
