With about 6.0% ABV, this one will surely warm the ol’ gullet during a cold central Texas winter - both days! Our India Pale Ale (IPA) is light in color and strong in hop character. Dry hopping with Cascade hops, gives this winter favorite a delicious citrus note reminiscent of a Texas Ruby Red. Yes, it’s warming but you don’t need to be huddled around the furnace to enjoy this one! IPA fans really love this ale during a beautiful Texas winter on the porch or indoors. Available December - April.

On tap at Crickets in Waco, TX. Has a light copper color to it with not much of a head and some average lacing. The aroma was very average but the taste was decent (nice floral hops). Had a medium body to it and was very drinkable.

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
Overall Impression: 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...

50belair (3426) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2011
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...

rougeau13 (2630) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2011
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.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2011
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.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2011
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.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2011
On tap. Pours a deep, clear gold with white head. Aroma of malt and pine. Flavor is lightly sweet and similar to aroma. Mouth feel is medium body with high carbonation. Overall, good stuff!

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
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)
