off white head, sweet taste with moderate amount of hops. not bad for an IPA. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Bottle. Pouerd an amber-red color. Head was off white, minimal lacing. Taste is malty, even sweet. Then a long mellow hop finish. Nicely balanced. Not as extreme as some West Coast IPA’s. Fits description nicely. Sancho (245) - Da Bronx, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Big up to Zinister from H-town for this hook up, pours a nice amber color w/ a small dissolving head.Hop and malt flavor is blanced,not overly hoppy like other IPAs,very drinkable very good. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Pours with a small quickly dissolving head. Hazy orange appearance. Citrusy, bitter grapefruit aroma some floral upon warming. Flavor is lightly sweet with a mouthfull of flavoring and bittering hops and a little tang on the long bitter finish. Medium smooth body Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Poured deep amber with thin tan head...floaties...VERY hoppy nose...piney, floral, maybe something chemical?...taste is very complex, especially for an IPA...malty and sweet, then a crescendo of hoppy spicy bitterness...seriously, it builds up as you take a breath after the last sip...bitter hop finish...excellent!

Clear light amber colored beer with a fine head. Aroma is hoppy with tones of toffee. Nice but little weak. Flavor is very bitter hoppy and dry. Also nut, toffee and some spices in there. An excellent IPA!
Thanks to 123456Green for this one. It pours a golden orange with little head. There is a great clean hop aroma with pine and floral present. It has a very nice ballanced flavor and feel. It’s citrusy and the bitterness is fairly high, but doesn’t get messy as it is ballanced with a bit of a nutty malt which works well and lends itself to a nice finish.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2005 Good to see Texas is getting the hang of tasty IPA’s. This stuff pours thick amber with medium sized fluffy head. Really floral piney aroma. Taste is much of the same with cut grass and sticky sweet malts. jsquire (4559) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Deep golden color out of the bottle with a delightfully fresh hop nose (lots of pineapple) and quickly dissapating off-white head. Tongue numbing hops in this one. Lots of citrus rind and pine resin, with enough malty sweetness to balance it out. I must say I am surprised that this IPA came from TX. Thanks to 123456green for the bottle. cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Piney hops with slight woody, cedar finish. A good session IPA, nothing too outrageous or out of control. Slight tongue-numbing effect but enough maltiness to balance. Love Maris Otter’s quality. I’m not sure this is quite up to the hype the overall rating shows but I’d drink it again, for sure. Thanks DasaS!
