Copper in color with herbal and earthy hops being most prevalent. Light caramel flavors balance out this unique ale. Hop lovers will enjoy this unfiltered, dry-hopped IPA.

Received in trade from GPHarris, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a deep shade of tarnished gold with a huge frothy alabaster head that recedes slowly and leaves chunky lace in its wake. Smells of citrus and a hint of pine, slightly earthy and a weird hint of menthol. Biscuit and toffee provide the malt backbone. Taste is citrus and earthy with an earthy herbal edge to it. Sweet caramel and biscuit play against the hops nicely without being asked. Medium body and level of carbonation, resinous sweet mouthfeel. Decent IPA, certainly not world class, but certainly easy enough to enjoy.

12oz can, no date but should be fresh. Served at around 45F.

Pours lightly hazy amber with a large off-white head that retains very well and leaves some nice lacing.

Aroma is primarily apricots and peaches with some oranges, floral hops, some mango, a touch of pineapple and grapefruit, a good bread and caramel/toffee malt presence is there as well. Very good strength.

Flavor is grapefruit, orange marmalade, apricots, some resinous hops, decent caramel malt backbone offering light sweetness, finishes with solid bitterness. Pretty juicy IPA overall.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation.

Very tasty IPA, one that I had been wanting to try since they started canning.

Can: Pours a hazy orange copper with a medium off-white heat that is fully lasting with nice lacing. Floral aroma has hints of citrus and pine. Hoppy flavor has a grapefruit tartiness with a medium bitter finish. This IPA does not disappoint!

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.

BeerandBlues2 (10909) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 7, 2011
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.

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.
