On tap at the J. Clyde. Hazy orange apperance. Aroma of floral hops. Nice citrus hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel. I was expecting zero from this beer and was very surprised. Living in AL and all the crappy beer and beer laws we have, this was very refreshing. Finally a brewery in this state can brew a decent beer!! Now get this stuff in bottles!!

An orange appearance with a white head. The aroma contains some pine, oranges, and caramel. The flavor is rather bitter with some pine, oranges, caramel. A good malt presence in this one as well. Overall a nice beer

2008 Southern Brewers Fest. Tap. Cloudy orange, thin white head. Big floral nose. Lots of citrus hops. Flavor is nice, cool crisp malt. Dominated by a heavy citrus bitterness. Classic big hopped American beer. Lots of dry-hop, C-note, PNW hops are present in this classic American IPA. Light bodied, rich citrus hop flavor.

Wow. What an excellent IPA. Orange in color with a thick, creamy white head and some gorgeous lacing. Big citric hop nose. Very tangy, citrusy hope flavor with a solid malt backbone. Very, very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Southern Brewers Festival 2008. Caramel colored brew with minimal head. Hazy. Grassy, citrus aroma with light grain notes. Nicely hop forward taste. Spice, wood and a touch of spruce are what come to mind. Just enough caramel malt in there to hold them together. Semi-dry, light-medium body. The only negative that I have is a bit of a soapy taste. Otherwise, this was a success.
