Can thanks to jazzbassman. pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Nose is pine, grass and somewhat musty. Taste is grassy and earthy. not enough caramel malt, IMO. Mouthfeel is medium and bitter. ok but wouldn’t ask for it again.

12 oz can courtesy of jzzbassman. Thanks monte. Pours a hazy copper color with a big fluffy cream head that has good retention and ample lacing. Aroma is big and bold with citrus, pine, caramel and some candied apricot. The flavor features apricot up front followed by pine resins, grapefruit and some toffee. The palate is a bit uneven starting thin and ending thick, and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and biter. Overall: The apricot flavor profile really surprised me, but its a solid IPA.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Draft. Pours orangey amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by earthy, pungent, but not overly bitter hops. A lot of wet hopping? Enough malt backbone to stand up to the hops -- bready and caramel. Medium, slightly oily mouthfeel. Well done IPA.

Growler from Liquor Express. Poured a hazy amber with a creamy off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Nice aroma of grapefruit and caramel with a light floral backing. The flavor found caramel and grapefruit. Medium body and medium bitterness.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Pours slightly hazy orange with a decent beige head. Aroma of grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is nice with mild pine, grapefruit, and orange rind. A bit thin, needs more malt. Dry finish.

On cask @ J. Clyde. Takes on a different character on cask. Server swears it is a different recipe than the regular IPA, and given the other ratings I’m inclined to believe him. Orange with a dense tam head. Big floral aroma. Perfect mouthfeel, with pleasant hop and malt balance; bitter without the astringency. Best from AL so far.

Pleasant aroma of citrus and hops. Very bitter with a hint of floral hops. The bitterness overpowered everything, though. Holdenn said it perfectly: "Lots of bitter hops but not many flavor hops." Unless you’re a huge fan of IPA across the board, this is not an easy or particularly enjoyable sipper.
