UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 12 oz. bottle via trade with a Texas buddy. Pours a clear gold color with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of crackers, caramel malts, corn flakes, faint earthy hops, and sweet dough. Flavor of corn flakes, sugar, sweet and bready malts, and some oily hops. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, chewy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The label said best by 07.19.11, but it seemed a little old to me because the hops had almost completely fallen out. Re-Rate: This was at Schlaflyís Repeal of Prohibition Festival, 2012. Got some hops out of it this time. Good, up-the-middle IPA.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2011
From bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a decent head. Nice resin with lasting bitterness, but missing the West coast citrus, pine, and fruit. Some carbonation, and decent alcohol kick. I prefer Austinís 512 IPA, but this is a good local session IPA as well, just with not as much character. A decent session IPA if 512 is not in the building...

AmEricanbrew (6722) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Clear amber color/ ivory head. Mild, but nice, spicy, floral hop aromas. Medium mouthfeel with average co2. Smooth, lightly sweet malty caramel flavors with subtle spicy, floral hoppage, nicely bitter finish--good

12 oz. bottle courtesy of fata2683 - Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Faint spotty lacing. Aroma is light dust. Itís kinda weird since the beer is a month and a half away from the "Best By" date. Flavor is esters, with a distant touch of sour. Medium body. I think this beer may be heading south. Thanks Keith.

dfinney23 (2658) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Iím not a big hop-head but thereís more going on with this beer than just the hops. Well balanced with a little fruit, a little floral and not much bitterness in the finish. Maybe not a great IPA but a pretty great beer.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2011
bottle thanks to BgThang, pours hazy orange/gold with a thin to medium white head. Aroma is heavy citrus and tropical fruits. Lots of pineapple and grapefruit, really great nose. Flavor is very nice and sessionable. Sweet grassy malts, thin cracker and toast. Ends with a pretty mellow hop presence for an IPA, but a nice one. Again the pineapple, pine and citrus comes through and lingers in the finish. Very mild for the style but still a beer I could drink all day.

brokensail (15728) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2011
A: The beer pours a nice golden orange/amber color with a white head. S: Funky body odor/armpit aroma of old hops. Some earthy and floral hop notes with hints of citrus peel. Plenty of bread and pale malt aroma to it, but the funkiness is just very off-putting. T: The flavor is decent enough. Some citrus fruit (oranges) and citrus peel. Lots of bready and cracker type malts with a slight sweetness to it. Only a mild bitterness on the back end. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: The flavor is pretty decent but the nose is just so off-putting that itís hard to get past.
