Can from liquor express. Pours dark burnt umber with half an inch of white foam. It’s leaving a ton of lacing in the glass. Nose is of Pine and spruce, very pleasant. Got a hint of orange on the tongue with pleasant hop flavor on the finish with very little bitterness. At 6% it’s a bit too substantial to session but it’s a nice example of the style.

Nice beer. Picked up a 6 pack on the way through Alabama. Not too hoppy. Nice session beer.

I love going places and trying local brews. Such was the case with this one on a recent trip to Birmingham. Surprisingly dark orange for an IPA (looked more like a chewy Double IPA) but the tan foamy head stuck around atop a fairly hazy beer. Aroma was mostly sweet caramelly malt with a faint wisp of citrus, but the flavor told a different story. Very sufficient bittering and a solid malt backbone complement each other well. I was happy the sweet aroma didn’t come through in the taste since I dislike ho-hum (boring) overly crystal’d IPAs. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full, surprising big for a 6% IPA. Although I enjoy more classic citrus hop flavor which this beer lacks, it was enjoyable and worthy of trying it again when I visit BHM.

12oz can -

Received via trade with farginbastige6! Again, thank you!! I like to think I know a little about IPA’s. I’ve all kinds of different IPA’s and this was quite tasty and very well made. After first cracking open the can, the first aroma coming out of it was oranges. After it hit the right temp, it really was like smelling a bag of fresh hops from the brewstore. A nice blend of pine and citrus. Flavor had a fantastic balance of doughy malts and fresh pine-cut hops. A great showing of an IPA, no matter what location it’s brewed in.

Hazy gold, large, puffy white head. Nose is highly oily grapefruit, bitter orange, a bit of caramel. Flavor is straight bitterness, like dry paper or envelope glue, bit or orange and candy as well merging into a toast finish with oily body.

355mL can thanks to blutt59. The pour is a hazy, deep orange looking odd in the glass. Very dirty but held up to the light it is quite a nice deep orange. Big, rocky yellow creme head. Great lace. Nose is mild detergent, sweet orange, flowers, sticky stale lemon drops and stale orange candies. Goes to old apple slices. Taste is sweeter, strange sticky lemon drops, astringent. Thickish mouthfeel, astringent and dry.

12oz can thanks to jzzbassman ! Pours a bright hazy amber orange with a small khaki head. Aroma is mango, tropical fruits, caramel, spice and sweet malts. Astringent spice bitterness wraps around sweet caramel malts and earthy hops. Nice IPA!
