2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap in a pint glass at Saxon Pub while listening to Denny Freeman with commonshawn. Light copper with minimal head. Aroma is all hops and taste follows suit. Cloying mouthfeel that grabs ahold and doesn’t let go. Feels like they just went all in on the hop IPA without a ton of balance. Citrus rind and grapefruit are present. Some sugar sweetness is there at the end. Kind of a standard drop in the bucket IPA but it’s not terrible.

Clear amber with small but nicely lacing white head. Nose is diminished floral hops notes and soap. Bitter punch, rather watery mouthfeel for how high gravity it is. Sweet in the middle. Peanuts? I do like the long, bitter finish. Overall meh

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap. Clear copper beer, darker than i expected, with a stable off-white head and good adhesion. Light aroma, kind of grassy/herbal, not too much citrus, lots of grapefruit, bitter, long aftertaste. Middle-of the road as far as IPAs go.

Light gold pour, small off-white head. Nose is grapefruit. Middle is medium roasted malt sweetness. Finish is pleasant medium hop bitterness that hangs around awhile. Went great with Salvadoran sampler of chicken tamales, pupusas, fried yuca, fried plantain and gallo pinto. Yum.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at hopdoddy’s. Pour is dark amber, almost brown with big fluffy tan head. Aroma is hoppy and so is taste, but not overly so and maltiness is evident. Smooth and drinkable without a long, bitter aftertaste. Not your typical IPA, more reminiscent of other pale-ale varieties. But a very enjoyable beer.

On tap at a bar in Austin. Aroma is pine and heavy malt. Pours amber with a big frothy head. Taste is grapefruit zest, pine and a huge malt finish. Medium thick mouthfeel with not too much bitterness. Approachable and mildy hoppy. Meh?
