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.

On tap. Clear gold pour, with a thick white head - good lacing, quickly dissipating. Very piney nose, and a sharp hoppy taste. Excellent mouthfeel. Too sharp and unbalanced overall.

(Draught - Gingerman, Dallas) Pours a clear amber body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, citrus, and florals. Flavor of malt, caramel, and citrus.

Aroma and flavor were more to the pine side than citrus. Refreshing, with a touch too much carbonation, but enjoyable.

Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Gingerman poured fresh with a frothy head and citrus orchard notes. Definitely not west-coast nitro hopped IPA. Bittering is dead on. Resins are cloying, but expected and not overbearing. I think I shall have another.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 Fresh hop aromas greet the nose like entering a pine forest. Cloudy pour with amber coloration. Great lasting bitterness that after lingering dissapates cleanly. Very great beer for the style.

This is a typical South Texas IPA. Most of the brewpubs and local breweries brew IPAs of this sort. Lots of amarillo type hops. I couldnít tell you what exactly the hop varieties are in this guy but that is my guess. and I just read the description and Iím totally wrong and stupid but anyway...Golden pour. Thick citrus hops thatare flat and papery. I love em like this.Flavors reflect this fruitiness with a nice spicy malt package that balances the hops out nicely. Good beer

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 (3509) - 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.

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.
