3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2008 On draught at Draught House in Austin. Poured a clear gold into the glass with a thin white head. Aroma was very piney and full of resin. The flavor is nice and bitter with a sharp, dry finish. 2008s batch seems a bit more balanced to me

NOT a fan of this IPA.
At first smell I thought this would be a decent IPA. It had a piny aroma with hints of citrus. Once I tasted it though I sang a different tune. Much too bitter for my tastes.
Everything seemed ok about this beer except for the taste.

Tap at Ginger Man, Houston. Strong piney hop aroma, flavor is the same, strong pine, citrus hops. Fairly bitter. A bit too much I thought.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 On draft at the Gingerman. Poured a medium to dark golden pour, with a quickly fading head and nice lacing. Smell is outstanding, and permeates as I’m carrying the pint back to my seat from the bar. A big whif of intense hops, along with hints of pine and cedary goodness. Taste is very nice, with a good sweet malt background that gives way to a piney, sappy, hoppiness. Nice bitterness up front, but finishes pretty smooth with a lighter nice bitterness and some luscious grapefruit-iness in the mix too. Overall an awesome IPA, and I wish they’d bottle this stuff!
