COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An everyday drinker for the Hopheads out there. Spicy floral and Citrus dominate along with 75 IBUs giving this brew all the hops of a double without all that malt in the way (not that there’s anything wrong with that)! 6.6% ABV and 75 IBUs.

Hazed orange pour with white fluffy head. Smell is candied orange citrus with fruity notes. Taste is instantly reminiscent of a Belgian ipa. Big fruity, esters galore, citrus, orange peel. Pretty tasty but unexpected.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours transparent amber with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of hay and hops. Taste of upfront bitterness with not much else.

Thick white head. Light yellow color with a slight hint of orange and very clear. Hoppy Citrus with a touch of piney spice. A very smooth drinking IPA with a wonderfully pleasant citrus aroma and dry hop flavor.

On tap Taco Mac- East Roswell. Clear copper pour with foamy ivory head. Loads of lacing. Aroma of resin, hay, floral hops, and sweet malts. Sharp hop bitterness upfront, floral and resin, followed by a nice malty backbone. Sweet malts balance out the sharp bitterness. A nice solid IPA.

When I drank this on cask at Brick Store I thought, "oh, that is how you do cask correctly." Pours a pale amber with white head. Scent is sweet and grainy. Excellent bitter bite up front with a sweet finish. Cask - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Draught at Brickstore. Cask. Orange body. Hoppy with a nice aroma. Slightly musty. Centennial hops stand out. Slight sweetness. Nice overall.

Growler. Pours a clear, attractive amber with a very thick, fluffy, persistent ivory head. The growler foamed like a bottle of New Year’s champagne when I opened it - as I write this, I am wearing some of this brewski. Strong, hoppy aroma is mainly woody/hay and has an underpinning of citrus, mainly grapefruit and orange. Flavor fits the aroma, hoppy, woody, citrusy, and enjoyable. Texture has good firmness and quite a bit of fizz, leaving a nice hoppy and grapefruit/orange finish. If not a great IPA, certainly a pleasing one. I look forward to more of BlueTarp’s offerings.

Growler from the Suwanee Beer Growler. Clear gold, with a medium, off-white head. Hay, floral and resinous hops, and rye. Crisp bitterness up front, with a nice, grainy sweetness through the middle and a slightly sour, bitter finish. Medium body, with a silky, lightly astringent, and nicely carbonated. This is a very nicely balanced and brilliantly aromatic IPA, with a great mouthfeel.
