3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Massively hopped IPA. Another drain pour. Cannot stand this style. Surprised a Houston brewery could pull this off.

Orange / copper, big tan head. huge hop aroma - pine, rosemary. Grapefruit, resin and peppery hop flavors. Earthy barnyard finish and a long aftertaste. Thanks to Drunkasaskunk for this one!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy orange brown with a light thin head. grapefruit and pine aroma(I believe there may be some hops in this). a few particle floating in this, but that’s o.k. A nice IPA lemony citrus that has a prevalent grapefruit taste throughout. slight malt finish that works well. a really great finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with alot of yeast floaties. Nose is floral and hoppy. Taste is slight of caramel, heavy hops, yeast, and bready. Very nice complex flavor that mellows on the tongue. Another damn fine IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small offwhite head, short lived, little lace. Hazy copper/orange hued color. Big, fruity hop nose, spicey with a nice blend of grapefruit, apples and piney notes that cover but dont completely mask the malt notes. Med/full body, lightly oily mouthfeel, nice texture. Plenty of piney, resiny hop notes with solid malt flavors balancing it all out. Pleasent, bitter finish. Damn nice IPA! Thanks Tom!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity, leafy hop aroma, citric and lightly piney with just a hint of sweetness, the overall effect is fairly slight for the style, however. Light-medium copper color and lightly hazy with a diminishing head. Flavor is pleasantly hopped and bitter, citric and lightly grassy, finishes dry and again full of juicy hop. Lively mouthfeel, medium-bodied. The bitterness is omnipresent but seemingly very well-rounded and quite flavorsome. Refreshing and summery. Thanks, Louis.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Should be nicknamed the Pogo Stick due to its extreme hoppiness. Nice brew. Take the free tour; it’s short on talk and long on drink. Perfect balance of bitter hops and malt to round out the flavor, keeping the hops hoppy and the malt malty. The alcohol is prominent, much more so than the Christmas Ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark orange body, not much head going on. Caramelly, bready aroma with some light lemon/pear hop notes. Spicy hops, wheat, and caramel on the start, Grapefruit rind and a "generic" sweetness on the finish. All in all a typical but tasty IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2004 Poured this pretty fast and still very small head and little if any carbonation.Nice golden orange color. more of a floral nose on this vs the DFH 60 Minute, pleasant.More of a floral hop flavor than the grapefruity hop like some IPA’s.Not bitter on the tongue,but again a nice floral aftertaste.Thanks to Captain Cougar
