1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Golden in color with a very small white head. Below average carbonation. Very thin with a clean taste. Did not come across as an IPA. What is a German style IPA? If this is it, I’ll stick to "regular" IPAs.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Not a bad IPA. It doesn’t bowl me over with hops, which I appreciate. Some don’t care for that but I really like it. A much more subtle approach to an IPA. 3.8
RE-RATE 9/8/10 Fresh tap at the brewery grand re-opening! Pours a clear golden orange with a solid white head. Aroma of sweet sap, grain and fruity notes. Flavor is lightly hopped, big grain and soft bitter. An easy-drinking IPA.

Cask conditioned at the fall beer tasting at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. Slightly warm hazy and golden with a decent head. Hop flavor and taste but somewhat weak for an IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden in color with a small white head. Above average carbonation. Very thin with a clean taste. The hop level is not that high. I’ve never heard of a German IPA. Overall I would say this beer is one of their better ones.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 fl oz bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a lacing white head. Grapefruit and citrus fruity aroma. Flavour is sweet and light citrus/peach fruity. Vague malt base but the flavour seems sweet as such from the fruity accents. Nice and smooth with a little bitterness coming through. Ends with a solid biterness.

12oz bottle thanks to mar. Pours a pale light golden with a small white head, very little lacing on mine. The nose doesnt bring much honestly. The taste, well if I was blindfolded I wouldnt guess IPA, Im not sure what I would guess. Taste some sweet malts, hops, citrus and some wheat characteristics.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pale gold, light white head and nice lacing. Nose of flat dry (not the verb, the adjective) hops, some sour malt and light yeast esters. The flavor is a little hoppy, but comes across as an underseasoned steak, just bland. Grassy tail.
