3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
A slight aroma of citrus and notes malts. Pours a light amber with no head or lacing. The taste is hoppy up front with hint of bread in the finish. The hops don’t over whelm. There is grainy aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Fizzy mouthfeel. Overall, while this would be a good Texas summer session beer, its very drinkable, but nothing outstanding.

Inoffensive. When that’s the best thing you can say about a beer, it’s time to switch to another.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange-amber with fluffy off-white froth. Lots of lacing. Very weak aroma; toast, citrus, and caramel. Taste is toasty and moderately bitter. Certainly not your typical IPA, and I’ll take it over Bud Light any day of course, but generally pretty weak and boring. Light-medium bodied and slightly dry.

Pours clear golden amber on tap. Aroma of floral hops with hints of citrus. Flavor of watered down hops. Not a great beer but not bad.

On draft at mangia pizza while waiting for our to go order. Orange amber colorored pour. Light thin lacing. Medium carbonation. Orange floral aroma, not very pungent. Hard to tell it’s an ipa by the nose alone. Medium mouth feel. Not bitter and not hopy. Very middle of the road ipa. I would give this to a first time ipa drinker. Very mellow and chrisp with minimal frightening flavors.

Draught at Marriott, San Antonio. An orange hued IPA with some bad esters going on. Not fairly good.

Something bothers me with the aroma. Dont know what. Too much chloride, too malty for its sake. Very yellow but with a decent head and lace. Mid body, mid bitterness, all in all a balanced brew. Some pines and corn maybe. Moderately bitter and long finish. Good for a summer day, poor for beer tasting.

Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has light pine and grass with musty grain backing. Flavor has a lot of earthy grain and grass with just a hint of pine.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Location: Bottle at Biga on the Banks, 1/25/14
Aroma: The nose is slightly off, some malty notes, and an off hop presence
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a small white head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, just kinda of off, a little buttery, mild bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, a touch thin, with an okay feel and and off finish on the mouth
As it was drinking this I just kept thinking of the wonderful Man Men line: "Not great, Bob!" Yup, that sums it up. One of my least favorite IPAs I can remember trying.

lots of smoke and pours a clear golden with lots of carbonation and a medium white head that dissipates rather quickly. the aroma is weak but you pick up mild hops and some sweetness and a little bit of woodiness. the taste is mild hops up front but ends sorta sweet and some woodiness. not a terrible beer and worth a try but don’t expect to be blown away.
