Another Alabama beer from fargingbastige6 and Good People: mostly clear copper orange pour with a slight receding head and tiny chunks of lacing. Big sweet grapefruit hops aroma with slight apricot, a very light maltiness. Taste is also big grapefruit with a twangy bitter upfront, slight apricot and peaches, slight maltiness with a bit of a heavy mouthfeel, GREAT bitter linger. Big Kudos to Good People for getting this one right - very good IPA. Thanks again Curtis; this one is a winner.

12 oz. can. Pours a dark gold color with a large beige head and lots of lacing. The aroma is grapefruit and fresh cut pine, with some grassy notes. The flavor is unabashedly bitter, with a hint of malty sweetness just at the beginning. The palate is light to medium, smooth, and acidic. The aftertaste is long and bitter, but not too abrasive. Overall, a solid IPA.

Sample at a tasting at IlliniSmitty’s house. I expected a lot from a brewer that had such a great showing at the East Nashville Beer festival, but this was pretty bad. almost like a pilsner, this was very light, crisp, and very mild on the bitterness. Nearly clear, fizzy light yellow color.

Tap. Pours hazy orange with an average, fizzy white head, medium retention with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (toast, caramel), heavy hops (floral, citrus, pine), and average esters (apple/pear). Flavor is medium malt with heavy hops and tropical fruit. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth and a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can courtesy of my man Gilly...thanks! Pours a clear amber brown with minimal head. Smells sweet, almost floral....some toffee, maybe some berries. Bitterness fades as the beer sits out for a bit. I taste perhaps some cherry in it as well. I like it, although it’s sweeter than I was expecting.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this can.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is strong and is made up of bready malt with some orange citrus notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of bitter oranges with some grass and pine notes mixed in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
