mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Pours a clear orange, with a small white head. Pretty nice hop aroma, some grapefruit citrus, and mild spice. The flavor had a sharp hop flavor with a decent malt backbone. Just a barely bitter finish, that lingered slightly in the aftertaste. had a decent hop presence throughout. I liked this actually, pretty balanced and solid all around. I liked the stuff I had from this brewery.

Draft at Barley’s Tap in Knoxville. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body. Moderate bitter hoppy citrus flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of average duration.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2007
An amber apperance with a moderate head. The aroma is caramel, oranges, and pine. The flavor is on the sweet side for an IPA but the bitterness comes through on the end. Some caramel, oranges, and grapefruit showing through at the end. Not world class but a good session IPA.

heavy lace, picking up lots more bitterness with only a touch of the balancing sweetness, touch of citrus character, settleing down nicely over the years into a good drinking IPA on the bitter side of life

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Draft at Barleys, and now a rerate in the new pop-top can several years later. Cloudy orange-brown with a small head. Aroma of malt, orange marshmallow, wood. Flavor is orange caramel, toasted nut, some woody and peppery-minty hops. Palate is light-medium, has fairly smooth carbonation and finishes well dry.

On tap at Barleys in Knoxville, TN. Poured a orange color with a very small head. Aroma was slightly hoppy. Not much of an aroma at all. Flavor was a toned down IPA. A little bit of citrus in there as well.

decaturstevo (5145) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2006
On tap at Barley in Knoxville. A hazed orange/amber pour with a lite white head. An aroma of hops as expected with a citrus kicker. A slight citrus fruitiness flavor and sweetness that is kicked in the ass by the hops quickly. A nice hoppy bitter finish. Not a great beer but not a bad one. I would gladly drink it again.
