2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma mostly hops with au hint of malts. Pours clear reddish brown with a mostly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste was all hops. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Overall, disappointing. It was a one trick pony - one that could only hop.

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent brown/maroon color. Very light carbonation, wafer thin white head with several frog eyes upon the liquid surface. Aroma of malt and refined sugar. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt isn’t soaked in caramel which is highly refreshing, some hops in the middle, finish is lightly acidic with a little sweetness. It’s ok.

A little bitter, and a little sweet, which is a nice combination for me. Low in carbonation, it's very easy to drink. It's a beautiful ruby red, but I don't really taste much malt.

They’re not lying about the hoppy. "Strong malt backbone" may be overstating it a bit, however. Looks the part but tastes more like a pale ale.

Poured a medium garnet with a healthy head. Nose of hops and mild malt. Heavy hops in the mouth. I think this style should be more leaning towards the malt.

Tap. The look is clear, off white head, and reddish in color. The smell is malty, hops, floral, grass, and resin. The taste is hops, cereal, fruit, malty, and ok.

I like the name of this beer because it describes my short visit to San Antonio. Draft at Flying Saucer. Clear bright amber color, tan head. Aroma of subtle caramel. Taste is very bitter toasted caramel. Very nice body.

On tap at Whip In. Pours a cloudy amber with thick beige head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong cascade hop and bready malt. Medium mouthfeel with bitter hop bite, fruit, and lingering bitter finish. Good.
