4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 I was surprised by this one. Expected something close to a pale ale... nope. Pours a murky floaties-rich orange with no head, but bubbling carbonation evident. Bottle of questionable age though - Iím pretty sure itís been on the shelf a number of months. Nice grapefruity hop aroma. Taste is a pleasant bitter orange hop, with a bit of malt - nearly hints of a light barleywine. Mouthfeel has a slight thickness to it. I like it, and would love to get my hands on a fresh bottle. A worthy Texas beer. Canít wait to drink it again.

yellow brown color off white head ok lace. Light orange and carmel aroma very light. Palate is well coated but very light. Flavor is a touch bitter grass, orange, and carmel. A decent IPA.

Bottle courtesy of Legion242. No head. Orange-amber liquid. Good marks for a nice hoppy aroma. Light malt flavour balanced well with stong grapefruity hop taste. Lasting hops. Sort of a middle ground between the UK and PNW style.

Draught. Nice nose and look to this beer as I had this one at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. Great citrus and hop aroma and the flavor is very well balanced with hop and malt sweetness. If I had more time I would have had a few more of this one. Nice brew.

Hey, a Saint Arnold beer that actually satisfies. Light coppery body is a bit hazy with a little bit of sediment. The head is smallish and fades fairly quickly. After the more mellow Saint Arnold beers Iíve had, I was a little surprised at the fairly aggressive hop aroma. The malt could handle a bit more body, but is strong enough to keep the beer from falling into an overbalanced hop water like some of the more irritating IPAs out there. Not quite top tier IPA, but still a solid offering. Nothing to sneeze at and worthy stand by beer status if it were available around here.

Light amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Flavor starts bitter, with some sweetness,bitterness is sharp and lingers unpleasantly.

In the bottle at the Huber Haus IPA tasting. Beer pours amber with an off-white head. Has a musty-chocholatey aroma. This one has a harder palate as it really bites the tongue. Burnt flavor. Sweet finish. Good lacing. Blooms late.

Brownish orange with a small white head. Grassy, citrucy aroma. Very smooth actually, and a nice bitterness throughout. Flavor is quite sweet with a definite hop presence. Quite nice.

This is a very decent IPA. It has a good balance without being overly hoppy.
