3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour of a clear light copper with a lacy white head. Aroma of big grassy piney note that mellows as it warms to let the sweeter notes come through. Taste of smooth grassy hops that leads into a malty peachy sweetness. Med body with a hoppy finish that gets stronger as it warms. Over all very enjoyable IPA that just ha a touch of sweet fruit to keep things interesting.

As advertised pours and wiff is.... eehhhhh wow err... then drinks like Kapow Blam! This is striking I REALLY hate it. Can I get more? Wow with the Hoptivity. Highly recommended for Austinite Hop Hounds. This is brewing with an exclamation point. Most Impressive. Missed that ’peach’ but that’s just me I guess.........

12 fl. oz. bottle from my bro (thanks!), served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep golden with a thin white head.

Palate: Medium+ body, slick, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: A lot maltier than the nose, lots of deep brown sugar, burnt sugar and dark rye bread crust, quite peppery, still plenty of pine/resin/dank, lightly sweet; light sweetness with good bitterness and a long, deeply malty and pine/resin finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper with medium off white head and thick lacing. Aroma is bright with spicy lemon zest, pine, toffee, and alcohol. Taste is malty sweet up front with a sharp biting bitterness. It has a solventy astringency thats a little hard to overlook, but still not a bad brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Various size bottles over the last few weeks. Poured a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is a heavy dose of citrus, grapefruit notes, pine resin is there. Flavor is resin, plenty of "cone" notes in this. Despite the amount of hops, this is pretty well balanced, with a nice amount of hops and malt backing to keep this beer in check. Booze comes forward on the finish.
