3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/11/12. GTMW. Dark orange pour with a nice khaki head. The aroma shows maltiness, caramel, and a balanced dose of smooth, citrusy hops. Balanced flavor as well with caramel and maltiness that finishes dry and smooth with some more citrusy hops. Not bad.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is cloudy orange. Tan head dies quickly with minimum lacing on glass. Wonderful nose of pine, floral, sugar, caramel, and fresh bakery.
Flavor is of floral hops, grapefruit, and pine. Low carbonation. I love bitter hops, but these are too bitter and overpower the other flavors. This drags the score down.
Also, for this style the alcohol content is too low.

Pours a nice clear amber with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Hoppy aroma has an undertone of grapefruit and a hint of yeast. Flavor has hoppy, grassy, citrus and yeast notes, a little bitterness and a touch of sweetness. Texture has firm, smooth body, and fizz is not strong but persists. Definitely tweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can, unknown date, but should be fresh as this is a recent arrival to the Georgia market. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours hazy amber with a two finger white head that leaves good lacing and holds a nice cap.
Aroma is apricot, some citrus rind, herbal, grassy, floral hops and a bit of pine, decent amount of caramel malt as well. Good strength.
Flavor is orange citrus, apricot, pine, resinous hops, good caramel malt backbone offering some sweetness, finishes with good bitterness, mild alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, oily, good carbonation.
Solid IPA, very drinkable. Does fall into the apricot/caramel spectrum of the style which isn’t my personal favorite profile.

At Gene’s rooftop. Dark amber for an IPA. Big fruity hops and quite bitter. The bitterness settles strangely in the palate though and while it wasn’t bad I just wasn’t a big fan of this. Serving: Tap

Pounder can from Capone’s. Pours turbid orange with 2-finger frothy off-white head that laces copiously. Nose is malty, with earthy piney hops, citrus, with tangeriney and black peppery smells. Tastes piney, hoppy, semi-sweet with orange marmaladey flavors, black pepper, and a big IBU-heavy finish.

This is nice. It’s got a great citrusy flavor from the hops, but a nice full body as well. It’s well balanced and extremely enjoyable.

Pours a darkish amber color with a small head. Big hoppy citrus nose with some caramel malt. Also getting some pine. Taste has a solid bitterness and a nice taste. Lots of orange citrus. Nice lasting finish that is refreshing. A really good ipa.
