3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the brewpub on July 14, 2012. Medium amber hue, somewhat subdued bittersweet nose, somewhat creamy texture, good bittersweet flavor with the hops front and center and the malt in an important supporting role. The recipe for this beer seems to have been tweaked for the better since the last time I had it a few years back. Very good brew.

Pours lightly cloudy amber with low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, light tropical fruit. Taste is hop intense and bitter up front with very little balancing sweetness. Body is a touch too light.

A copper color with white head. The aroma is not very powerful with some caramel and citrus. Flavor is rather bitter but well balanced. Some caramel, oranges, grapefruit present. A slight herbal presence. Overall a nice one.

From tap @ Downtown Grill and Brewery in Knoxville. A light amber IPA with decent head and lacing. Significant hops aroma with citrus and malts. Good carbonation. Hops and more hops - with a slightly piney middle and slight malts - then good hops finish that remains well balanced.
