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.

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 (4065) - 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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2005
On tap at JPs. Wow! This was certainly a pleasant surprise... A crisp, hoppy nose welcomes the drinker and invites said drinker on in to taste its bounty. The aroma is magically transferred to the flavor, full and biting, but not too overboard. The palate is a bit thin, but the strong hops presence lets you know that a good palate ainít nothiní if you canít back it up with taste. Definitely a good beer.

Tejas (977) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2007 Draught > Gingerman. Woah, I was very surprised at this one. In 2 words >>> Flowery & Grapefruity. Perfect appearance & lacing. I put it 2nd only to Avery 11. Tons of hoppy aroma. Good lasting creamy head. Very smooth on the palate. Iím going back to Gingerman tomorrow to have another; itís that good.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Poured light copper with a medium tan head...smell is pine and grapefruit...taste is well balanced malt v. hop, with a nice clean sweet bitterness in the finish...good stuff...

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Gingerman, Dallas. Clear medium yellow color. Fluffy small bubbled white head. Incredibly sweet bubble gum and sugar hope nose, and a similar flavor. Probably the sweetest IPA Iíve ever had. Very bright pineapple and lemon flavor, similar to Dreadnaught. Sweet candy sugar and citrus/bubble gum hop attack. A little gritty and leafy as well. Light and crisp on the palate. Very tasty but too sweet to drink regularly.
