What looked like a very good looking ale, turned out to be a hard swallow.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated based on notes taken 23 Aug 2012 -- an okay IPA. Focuses on bitterness and crisp body rather than the "IPA experience". It’ll do but there’s better out there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle. Unclear brownish orange, fine tan foam settles and mostly fades. Milder aroma of Noble hop and caramel. Well malted caramel/toffee taste, moderate herbal/floral/spiced hop, some citrus. Average carbonation, light-medium body. Nice enough for a British style IPA made with German hops and brewed in Texas. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Aroma of biscuit and floral hops. Taste adds slightly bitter citrus. More interesting malt influence than most IPAs.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber with a foamy white head. Earthy grape-like fruitiness with a reisny hop and a little earthy grapefruit. Interesting nose. Rich caramalt flavor with some light grape tones like it was wine barrel aged, a little tree fruit note, grapefruity citrus earthiness, and finishing with a cracker and toffee maltiness and yet also with with this white wine and pseudo woody tone. Interesting and complex.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle. Picked it up at Spec’s on Eastchase in Fort Worth on the cheap. Looks good in the glass; clear copper with a bit of white head that is gone about halfway down. Nose is not particularly pungent--some biscuit malt but not much else. Nice bitterness, slightly sour toward the end. Harsh finish, but in a good way. Solid, but far from spectacular. Rahr doesn’t break any new ground here, but it’s a nice part of their portfolio.
