2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
2009 bottle. I am not sure who uploaded this, but I am not sure it deserves itís own rating. Pours with a particle abundant yellow body with no head. Aroma of apples, German hops, and a noticeable, crisp element. Taste is a bit astringent with soggy and sour malts, a bit of German hops and associated bitterness. Tastes as though it has been lagered. No where near enough hoppiness for an IPA (I would be shocked if this was above 30IBU). Fizzy and dry mouthfeel.
Earlier Rating: 4/9/2008 Total Score: 2.6
Not an IPA in my opinion, just swill. Pours with a large, rocky, white head with a deep yellow body. Hay and maybe some spicey yeast in the aroma (lack of hops, especially for an IPA). Tastes like a watery pale lager with a dash of hop bitterness. Pretty crappy for an IPA. Fizzy mouthfeel.

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, Iíll stick to "regular" IPAs.

12oz twist-off bottle. Hazy golden orange, tall off-white head of foam. Nice citrus hop, some straw, and a bit of caramel. Bready malt flavor. Very dry. Spicy and finishes with a nice linering hop character. Medium bodied. very tasty and full flavored. nice hop bite.

12oz bottle. Brew pours medium gold, mostly clear with a fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Some lemon zest and other citrus notes. Flavor held some spice and hop bitterness, finish was quick and somewhat astringent.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Not a bad IPA. It doesnít bowl me over with hops, which I appreciate. Some donít 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.

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.

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.
