3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap as part of sampler. This particular version came from cask, which softened the carbonation a bit. Big powerful hoppy aroma with punches of alcohol. Abrasive hop flavors that scrape the tongue. A big beefy IPA to be sure and on the aggressive side.

On tap. A nice gold color with a short white head and lacing. The aroma has pine, grass, and some honey. The flavor has some hops up front and through the flavor, along with some malt and a little bit of spice on the aftertaste.

The only one I remember well enough to remember from my college days. This was a very hoppy beer but quite tasty. Wasn’t really sure at the time about the strong hop flavors as I am now.

[Nashville]–on tap-pours a foamy off white head and gold color. Aroma is soft orange, grain. As it warms, some spice shows and the grain becomes sweet.. Taste is orange/resin/herbal hops bite, medium malt-caramel. Finish is bittering hops bite.

The name is rather misleading as I was expecting a beer with hops slammed down my throw. Rather this is a type IPA, nice citrus taste and smell but nothing more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery in Franklin. Touted as a double IPA and hoppier than their Bombay IPA. Light amber color. Mild hop aroma - clean noble hops. Hop taste is also quite mild and easy to drink. More drinkable than the Bombay, would be great on cask, but too mild to be a DIPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition festival. Pours golden / orange with a small head. The aroma has piny floral hops, sweet caramel malt and some diacetyl. Medium body that is a bit abrasive and has some semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts like the aroma, but the oxidized side and there is some syrupy sweetness. The finish is thin and overly earthy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Cool Springs location. Eggshell head that faded leaving minimal legs. Could have been a detergent issue. Body was a nice clover honey color. Citrus and spice hops on the nose. Same goes for the flavor but with a honey sweetness. Finish was decently bitter but not nearly as bitter as I had hoped or expected.
