COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With about 6.0% ABV, this one will surely warm the ol’ gullet during a cold central Texas winter - both days! Our India Pale Ale (IPA) is light in color and strong in hop character. Dry hopping with Cascade hops, gives this winter favorite a delicious citrus note reminiscent of a Texas Ruby Red. Yes, it’s warming but you don’t need to be huddled around the furnace to enjoy this one! IPA fans really love this ale during a beautiful Texas winter on the porch or indoors. Available December - April.

blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Draught at Opal Divine’s Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small frothy white head. Mild but pleasant aroma of light hops, fruit and caramel malt. Flavour: Hmmm, a bit odd for an IPA, it’s semi-sweet, fruity and grainy with a decent bitter finish. Average bodied. I found this just good, it’s not what I look for in an IPA.

fiveacestx (972) - Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2012
On tap at Crickets in Waco, TX. Has a light copper color to it with not much of a head and some average lacing. The aroma was very average but the taste was decent (nice floral hops). Had a medium body to it and was very drinkable.

ben4321 (6668) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2012 Location: Draft at Ginger Man- Austin, 2/17/12

Aroma: It has a fairly subtle aroma of light malts, plus some citrus and floral hops
Appearance: The pour is a clear orange color, with a small white head, and medium lacing
Flavor: The taste is fairly balanced, citrus/caramel sweetness, some fairly bitter hop flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, it rounds out nicely, is decently smooth, and quite dry on the end palate
Overall Impression: I found this one to be a solid IPA with a better taste then aroma. It wasn’t a spectacular example of the style, but it was solid enough...

On tap at the Gingerman in West U. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Piney hop aromas. A real nice IPA with good balance. Pine and citrus hop notes kept in check by a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Impressive...

rougeau13 (3156) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Draft. Pretty clear, dark golden-amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma, a little faint for the style, of pine, caramel, citrus and bread. The taste is malty with a nice moderate bitterness. Medium bodied. Somewhat mild, but a more than acceptable IPA.

2.7
Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2011
On tap at the Highball in Austin. Out of season, apparently. Amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is a little citrus, grain, and a little bread. Taste is earthy, bitter, a faint amount of fruit, and a little grass.

3.7
Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2011
On tap - Vickery Park in Plano. Deep golden orange color with a decent amount of white head. Smells delicious - lots of citrus hops with some pine and bready malt as well. Slightly sweet flavor with a malt backbone that keeps the bitterness at bay. One of my favorite Texas brewed IPAs.
