COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With about 6.0% ABV, this one will surely warm the olí 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, itís warming but you donít 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.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2005
On tap at The Gingerman, Austin. Pours golden with a white foamy head. There are good pine hops on the nose and the flavor follows. Nothing earth shattering but still pretty good.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2005
On tap at Gingerman Austin. Standard hoppy nose, bu this one seemed to have a bit of caramel in it. Hoppy flavors with some sweetness in the back. Mouthfeel was sticky and mouth coating. For me, Iíd like more sweetness, but other than that, this was good.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Lightish body ... but still chewy in a way. Cakey-sweet malts with notes of dough and caramel. Nice flavors. Herbal, earthy hops with light notes of pine and citrus. Not a lot of depth, but easy to quaff.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2005
tap at the flying saucer with kevin and lumpy...a huge hoppy nose, lots of grass and pine coming off a dark yellow pour with a thin white lacing. smooth even flavors, with some caramel malts backing up a huge hop profile, with hints of pine, citrus and hay. a slick oily mouthfeel and an aftertaste that doesnt cause pain equal a very easy to drink and tasty ipa.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Golden in color with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Flavor of citrus,pine,grapefruit,very cascade-like. Good american pale ale, didnít know at the time it was an IPA.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Sampled on draft, Ginger Man, Dallas. Pours a hazy orange/brown in color with a creamy off-white head and thick sheets of lacing. Aroma is mild (for an IPA) citrus & floral hops. Wonderfully bitter flavor with grapefruit/floral hops dominating. There is a good malt backbone, perhaps a bit bready, and devoid of the typical overload of crystal malts typically found in lesser examples of the style. Hops are the focus of this beer, but they arenít out of hand. Finished clean. Good enough youíll want to grab another pint.

TheEvilTwin (13) - Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Rounded peppery mose with hints of oleander. A very nice citrius flavor, which I look for in a IPA. The deep copper color is perfect for this american IPA.

kxkeller (32) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2005
A rather light, pilsner-looking color with a disappearing white head. A nice, but very dominating hop aroma. The hop taste is perfumy, piny with a peppery twist. The aftertaste is more subdued and smooth.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2005
Light copper body with a frothy, dense white foam head. Huge pine and grapefruit, classic hop aroma. Sticky, heavy body pushes the hops around the mouth with the malts supporting the hop flavors reasonably well. Not a bad IPA for the hop-heads; simple and sticky. The alcohol wasnít noticeable in the flavor but it was in the bloodstream. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
Bottle. Hazy body with a dense head. Taste-bitter hops, grapefruits, some kind of meaty taste. Very sharp bitter flavor that is unapealing. Foamy gassy mouthfeel. Mouthfell sucks it starts out as gassy, then goes to bitter, then to astringent, then bile.
