4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This IPA was one of the best tasting IPAs I have had. I had it on tap so it might be different in a bottle. You can taste the hops, but the taste is not overwhelming. Medium to large body, it drinks like a thicker beer than it actually is.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden amber color with a dense, frothy, white head. Grapefruit, citrus peel, pine needles, pepper, and herbal. Some malty sweetness mixed with the resin bitterness. Smooth, almost a little oily, and moderately carbed. Mild booziness in the bitter finish.

Excellent IPA, similar to a sculpin but heavier body. Great aroma complex more than just hop bitterness.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tried this at the bottle share that sprung up at the Swamp Head Bottle Drop. Pours light yellowish gold with a fluffy white head on top. Aroma of huge pineapple, grapefruit, other citrus notes, lemon peel, sweet honey from the malts. Awesome. The flavor is even better. Huge pineapple sweetness up front followed by bitter pine and grapefruit, some grass, and big lingering citrus notes throughout the palate. Super light bodied, easy going, and medium plus carbonation. I wish I could have this every day.

Clear golden yellow in color, slightly herbal nose with notes of citrus hops. Flavor has a very smooth peppery mouthfeel with fairly dry spicey hops on the finish. Really enjoyable but I like Nelson better

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle, shared by a local louisvillian beer enthusiast. Mostly clear golden orange color. Some fine particles in the body. Nice thin finger of off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Awesome hoppy nose. Great, big grassiness, grapefruit citrus, some passion fruit. Bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Good zest. Fantastic DIPA. So tasty. Not as much bite as expected (didn’t realize this was a single IPA when rating]. So much chewy resiny hop aftertaste... Nice grapefruit. Delicious stuff. Such an enjoyable one to sip slowly on a beautiful spring afternoon in Louisville...

Ale Alpharetta. The one thing that I can say about this is smooth and approachable. Without being over zealous with the bitterness, the juicy hops of mango, orange and grapefruit, pine are all over. Smooth, clean malt backing. Really, really good IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle shared by Trey at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a clear, bubbly gold color, with a small, off-white, almost grayish, bubbly head. The aroma is bright citrus (tangerines or lemons, perhaps?), white grapes, and wheat. Light and approachable flavor. Very well balanced, with significant bitterness, and light malt sweetness, but neither is very assertive. Light body, crisp, clean, and lightly effervescent. Overall, this is an excellent, sessionable IPA! The aroma jumps out and gets your attention, but it is dangerously light, and almost effortless to drink.
