elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2013
12oz bottle, best by 4th week of March 2013. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours semi-hazy amber with a two finger white head that leaves globby rings of lacing and holds a good cap.

Aroma is oranges, some pine, apricot, caramel, bread. Good to very good strength. Hoppy but balanced with a good bit of malt.

Flavor is orange citrus, apricot, resinous hops, good amount of caramel malt, mild to moderate sweetness, moderate to good bitterness, some alcohol on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, somewhat creamy, little sticky, good carbonation.

Good IPA. Definitely more on the balanced side, decent bit of caramel here, not exactly my style, but pretty good.

This a great average beer, while it's not exceptional it's flaws are minimal, which makes it a great beer for multiple session ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mibeersnob (46) - Howell, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Complex aroma - hints of pine, cherry, citrus. Pours a rich orange, clear, and long lasting white head. First taste is somewhat subdued with only 83 IBU. Thick, rich, flavor with hops are mixed well with malt. Bitterness is not as pronounced as West Coast IPAs. A lingering aftertaste. For 7.2% ABV, little to no alcohol taste. Found to be a rather good IPA.

wedgie9 (1929) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Tasted on 4/15/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours clear dark orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky and sticky lace. The nose is full of pine resin hops, a touch grassy, with a nice caramelly bread malt backbone. The flavor is about the same, this is an IPA on the sweeter side with plenty of caramel malt up front, finishing with some nice hops bitterness. The body is medium with a sticky texture, average carbonation, and a long bitter resin and grassy hops finish.

1 Apr 2014, bottle. light orange, clear, no bubbles, frothy head. nose is big grapefruit hops. med/full body and moderately fizzy. peaches and grapefruit. sweet enough to balance big hops. I really like this. It’s virtuality the perfect IPA based on my preference for a full bodied, sweet IPA

Had this on tap at the brewery a served in a pint glass. Top notch IPA with tons of hop characteristics throughout and a nice malt sweetness on the finish. I highly recommend this beer!

Ernesto987 (3708) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2013
draft, light hop presence, a little too light for my taste, oh well. The malts are strong, it could just be too old
