On draught at Petrol Station. This beer pours a cloudy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of citrus, hops and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
On tap at (512), pours a hazy copper orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out piney hops, light resins and dry toasted malt. Flavour is loaded with piney hops, toasted biscuity malt, and light resins. Piney and woody on the finish. Excellent. BeerRenter76 (1035) - Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2015
On tap at Opal Devines on S. Congress in Austin. A decent DIPA, aromas and flavors of pine, herbal with a touch of orange flavored hops, decent malt backbone gives it a pretty good balance. Not a super big, or bold DIPA, but soild all around. roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Pours hazy golden with full white head on tap. Aroma of hops, pine, and grapefruit. Flavor of hops with smooth malt finish. Great beer!

On tap from memory, orange pour with white head, smells of grapefruit, with some, decently sweet malt backbone, not too bitter, not too strong or overwhelming for a DIPA mansquito (6902) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Texas Mesquite Grill, Katy tap: Pours orange with a white head.Aroma is of grapefruit, and a little bit of pine, coupled with a nice juicy malt backbone. Taste is bitter, but not overwhelmingly. Bitterness is well balanced with the malt. This didn’t drink like a DIPA to me. Tasting blind, I would have thought it was a single IPA. Good though.

(Backlog) On tap. The look is orange colored, lacing decent off white head, and clear. Aroma is orange, pine, hops, fruit, nice hoppiness, and good. Taste is a decent bitterness, hops, oranges, grapefruit. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Coming from Seattle, I have no qualms about saying this is a great traditional West Coast IPA. Big citrus hop bite, and the malts don’t drown out that flavor like some of the other TX brews I’ve had do. Good stuff. ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2013

scootpolute (27) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Aroma: It has a nice, clean, hoppy nose, with some pine/resin, grass, and a bit of earth
Appearance: The pour is an orange color with a decent sized white/off-white head
Flavor: The taste, like the nose, is clean and hoppy, with light sweetness and a good bitterness
Palate: The body of this one is medium, and it has a pretty smooth, clean mouthfeel
I really enjoyed drinking this one. It is a quality DIPA for sure, and another tasty offering from 512. I was pretty impressed that a place with only 2 draft lines had this as 1 of their 2 drafts.
On Tap at the, "Brass-Tap" in Round Rock, TX...I realize that the BT is a chain, but it is nice to see FL (where BT was founded) showing appreciation for craft beer....the location in Round Rock is spot-on (thank-you)!!
A - pours clear, copper in color, with just the right amount of carbonation. some head with nice lacing.
S - very appealing smell. Floral notes and aromatic hops but not overwhelming...
T - Smooth, yet you know right off the bat this is a BIG BEER! Finishes smooth and clean with a sweet aftertaste pine, citrus, and floral notes. Alcohol is there, but not too-too much...just that ’right-on’ spot before going over-board...
M - Smooth on the pallet with just the right amount of carbonation. Leaves your pallet with a sweet aftertaste.
O - very solid DIPA.... One of the Best DIPAs I’ve had...I like the solid compliment of hops AND malts (too few remember to compliment both) I would definitely look for this one again!!
