COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available year-round.

The States were at war and one fateful day a troop of Union soldiers, occupying what is now Avondale Park, came across a posse of Confederate Home Guards. When shots were exchanged near the house of the town sheriff, a stray bullet struck his wife in the breast as she stood on the porch of her house. Luckily, she made a full recovery!

The Battlefield IPA is a new twist on an American India Pale Ale. Our master blend of west coast hops and the finest American and European malt distinguishes itself from many IPAs on the battlefield. A hoppy citrus and floral nose invites you to experience the perfectly balanced IPA. The natural bouquet of our hop blend and malt gives this IPA a victory all its own. You will agree the battle has been won when you reward yourself with our outstanding spin on the IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Draft at Tap room. Pours golden color with a medium head. Strong aroma of citrus, floral, and piney hops. Light body with medium bitterness and hints of malt sweetness. -- Aroma of citrus not as strong but some caramel and nut. Recent batches haven’t been quite as good.

Tap at Chattahoochee brewing Company, Phenix City, AL. Pours a clear amber, decent amount of white head. Aroma is hoppy, hints of grass with roasted malt undertones. Taste is grassy hops, light pine notes with roasted malts, hints of toast and light nuttiness. Pretty interesting malt profile here. I like it. Very smooth. Palate is lightly carbonated, medium body, lingering bitterness. Overall pretty good beer.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this. Orange with a white head. The aroma has some big pine notes as well as some orange and biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same with big pine and orange, low bitterness and sweet, biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

LilBeerDoctor (3429) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange-brown with a thin rim of white head. Aroma of iced tea, citrus, caramel malt, tropical fruits. Flavor is malty, slightly earthy actually, with light citrus and bitter hops in the finish. Tastes better than the aroma suggests, luckily. Malt is well present- this is not a super hoppy IPA- it is also a very drinkable IPA. The iced tea persists as the beer warms, a slight flaw in the beer. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear pure gold body that supports an off white head. The aroma is pretty nice with earthy hops, hop spiciness and some grapefruit off in the background. The taste seems to be hop flavor forward with mango like tropical fruit and grapefruit and then it gets just a little more bitter to midway with growing citrus bitterness to tartness. But the hop flavor persists with a little bit of malt sweetness into the finish. Pretty solid IPA.
