3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich mahogany pour with a dirty head. A boozy aroma with noticeably bitter hops and burnt caramel malt. Interesting flavor. Burnt caramel malts with a very light sweetness and plenty of bitter hops. Mouthfeel is odd. Full and creamy with a semi-dry finish. I’ll. Revisit this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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?

7/27/13. On tap at Vintage at Fairhope. Amber pour with a small fluffy head. Overly sweet aroma and flavor, way too malty. I’m thinking it’s a touch old.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good lace and a long lasting head. The alcohol is not overpowering, and it’s not as hoppy as some ipas.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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, it’s drinkable, but not exciting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 it’s alcohol we’ll but it’s not the most exciting example of the style.

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 bitter’s show up slightly. you can tell this is from the East Coast

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.
