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.

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 (872) - 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.

3fourths (8017) - 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.

Kevin (2077) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 31, 2004
tap at the old monk. another ode to the hop. pours dark tan with a thin creamy head. very hoppy aroma that is more grassy pine than citrus. subdued bitterness that has a surprising amount of sweetness. dry lingering burnt hop taste that does not as bad as that sounds. if the taste was equal to the aroma this would be a stellar beer.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Aroma of citrus and pine with a little yeast. Clear and golden with a thin firm white head. Extra smooth with a full body and pleasant bitterness. Strong hop flavor. Nice

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Had on tap @ The Gingerman. Pours a slightly murky golden color with good head and lacing. Good citrus nose with some nutty/buttery notes. Big floral and citrus flavor with an earthy bitterness that lingers for a while. Nice amount of malt to make it a very well balanced and quaffable beer.

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 Had on tap at Opal Divineís in Austin, Tx. Medium golden pour, decent head, which lasts a long time. Crisp floral aroma, very clean. Crisp clean citrusy flavor with a bit of back end nuttiness. Not overdone, sits just right. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. A most delectable little APA.

Holy Moly! I was not expecting a whole lot from this one and it blew me away. Loads of grapefruit from what must be Cascade hops. I really felt that this one had a ton of mouthfeel and presence. I am going to go back tomorrow and have another!
