3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2011 (draught at freetail in San Antonio) pours clear amber with great lacing and lasting head. Nose of citrus hops, orange/grapefruit oils in nose and taste. Taste has some pine which detracts a bit but that bitter doesn’t linger over to the palate. Creamy and pretty delicious. One of the better Texas beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Anvil/Houston. Bright gold and hazy with very little head. Nice but not overwhelming hop nose, very fresh and floral. Taste is not a hop bomb-this is very subtle beer that has a nice hop profile but it does not beat you over the head with it. I love the mild temperature and low carbonation of this cask beer. A bit alcoholic with a nice smooth drinkable palate. This is a gentle beer that deserves some respect. Well done.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2010 Tried on tap at the GInger man. Not as hoppy as other IPA’s but this made it much more enjoyable for me. 3.5
RE-RATE 10/10/10 Cask at Gman FW. Pours a hazy golden orange with a very strong head. Aroma is huge hops, fruit and pine. Flavor is grapefruit with fat earthy hops. Amazing aroma with a bitter flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the infamous missing ratings notebook. On tap at Trinity hall last autumn. Pours a surprisingly light color that is golden and has faint orange highlights. Nose is a blast of citrus and fresh hops and a bit of dry tea leafs? Taste is caramel, citrus and rounded out with a decent piney bitterness. Highly quaffable and delicious.

Pours a nice golden color with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, fresh resinous hops, pine. Flavor is very much the same with an excellent fresh hoppy flavor that is balanced out with just enough malt. Nice bitter hoppy finish too. Quite an enjoyable IPA.
