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, its warming but you dont 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.

Brown and cloudy, with a small head. Almost no aroma. However, the flavor is very fruiity. I can taste strawberries in the body?

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2006
Clear sparkling amber, thin creamy white head. Hopped up nose of pine, earth, and light florals with a soft nutty caramel undertone. Flavor up front is all hops, slightly bitter, with a late kick of sweet caramel pulling it together. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, drying bitter finish. A great thrist quencher on a hot sunny day...

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2006
On tap. Clear gold pour, with a thick white head - good lacing, quickly dissipating. Very piney nose, and a sharp hoppy taste. Excellent mouthfeel. Too sharp and unbalanced overall.

bu11zeye (13020) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2006
(Draught - Gingerman, Dallas) Pours a clear amber body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, citrus, and florals. Flavor of malt, caramel, and citrus.

jzzbassman (1588) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Aroma and flavor were more to the pine side than citrus. Refreshing, with a touch too much carbonation, but enjoyable.

Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Gingerman poured fresh with a frothy head and citrus orchard notes. Definitely not west-coast nitro hopped IPA. Bittering is dead on. Resins are cloying, but expected and not overbearing. I think I shall have another.

peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 Fresh hop aromas greet the nose like entering a pine forest. Cloudy pour with amber coloration. Great lasting bitterness that after lingering dissapates cleanly. Very great beer for the style.

grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 21, 2005
This is a typical South Texas IPA. Most of the brewpubs and local breweries brew IPAs of this sort. Lots of amarillo type hops. I couldnt tell you what exactly the hop varieties are in this guy but that is my guess. and I just read the description and Im totally wrong and stupid but anyway...Golden pour. Thick citrus hops thatare flat and papery. I love em like this.Flavors reflect this fruitiness with a nice spicy malt package that balances the hops out nicely. Good beer

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2005
On tap at The Gingerman, Austin. Pours golden with a white foamy head. There are good pine hops on the nose and the flavor follows. Nothing earth shattering but still pretty good.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2005
On tap at Gingerman Austin. Standard hoppy nose, bu this one seemed to have a bit of caramel in it. Hoppy flavors with some sweetness in the back. Mouthfeel was sticky and mouth coating. For me, Id like more sweetness, but other than that, this was good.
