3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft. yeast nose of shallot / onion / garlic and must, which seems odd given the hop bill here, but that’s how it is. perfumed / musty citrus pith and spiced sweet vegetable hop aroma with large dose of yeast. high bitterness, medium acidity, low carbonation, mostly smooth texture other than the spicy hop acid. my overall opinion is that it’s muddled and muted but the undertones of garlic / vegetables tells me I wouldn’t enjoy much a cleaner version.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint glass at Alamo Lake Creek- served a slightly turbid copper/amber color. 4mm white head formed and laced very nicely upon the vessel, aroma of hops by the wheelbarrow load, malt, and heart. Hits the mouth with a wide medium body, malt is tasty (!) and laced lightly with caramel, middle has the typical hop wave- even and very good size, finish is cloying and extremely acidic. The notes read,"Ya can’t do this at BAIT AND SWITCH FLIX!". Indeed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty typical color and head. A hodgepodge of hops. Some grainyness, notes of caramel. More on the stringent side of the hops, not super smooth. Light carbonation. Finish is bitter and long lasting.

Draught at Opal Divine’s Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a deep, bubbly orange with a small fizzy off-white head. Aroma of resiny and catty hops, grain and some fruit. Flavour of grain, caramel malt, resiny hops and a slightly harsh bitter finish. Average bodied. Meh, just alright.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at thirsty planet tap room. Nicely hopped with the effect of floral and ester notes more than bittering. Drinkable, sessionable, but not that memorable. They should stop filtering their beer. Flavor is lost

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Petrol Station. Light orange with hop citrus nose. Grapefruit and some pine with a dank but nicely bitter finish. Very decent session IPA, but not over the top like some aggressive hop-mainly IPAs.
