Pours a nice amber with a fairly thick pale tan head. Strongly hoppy aroma has fruity and dusty malty undertones. Seriously hoppy flavor has strong malty and fruity supporting notes. Firm mouthfeel is hoppy and fizzy, quite pleasing. These folks have engineered a great IPA - any of them Georgia Tech graduates?

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2013
7/27/13. On tap at Vintage at Fairhope. Amber pour with a small fluffy head. Overly sweet aroma and flavor, way too malty. Iím thinking itís a touch old.

Good lace and a long lasting head. The alcohol is not overpowering, and itís not as hoppy as some ipas.

Had a bomber from Hop City in Birmingham. Something was just missing here. Not a lot of bitterness that you'd normally expect from an ipa. Not a terrible beer but isn't going to win any awards. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stracey (39) - Pelham, Alabama, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours dark orange with thick white head. Not much aroma. Slightly citrus. Taste seems a little off. Some citrus there and the hops a little bit. Plenty of alcohol. Not at all well blended.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle from hop city Birmingham - pours orangish brown with an offwhite head, decent lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is bitter with a slick finish. Overall, itís drinkable, but not exciting.

Pastor (790) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - DEC 2, 2012
great head and lacing looks pretty in the glass. mostly the alcohol comes through in the nose, not much of a hop presents. mostly malts and the flavor profile , the bitterís show up slightly. you can tell this is from the East Coast

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottled, dark pulpy orange color with tall frothy foam, aroma is prickly pine and citrus, heavy flavor of malty citrus, metallic bitter note, finish can be a little harsh

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle from hop city Birmingham. Pours a really cloudy brown with a half inch of khaki foam that leaves a lot of lacing. Has a few floral, grapefruit notes on the nose. Inert on the tongue with a but of grapefruit on the finish. Hides itís alcohol weíll but itís not the most exciting example of the style.
