Real funky. Good aroma, but tastes off. Thanks Brentfeesch (by way of Seymour). Very hoppy, but not in a good way. "Its no bueno" says Nadya. No balance.

Can while camping for Ranch-a-Thon XIV. Some definite dankness can be detected from the can, pretty fresh and hay like. Taste is a very nicely balanced crisp and slightly sweet moderately hoppy beer. Bitterness is minimal and this just seems like a great everyday IPA that is not complex and doesn’t have one thing scream out as being bad or great.

A golden orange pour from one of the most uninspired labels of any can (or bottle) that I’ve seen. That said the beer was decent with a strong hop nose and a resinous flavor of hops balanced with a little malt sweetness.

Pours a deep golden brown from the can with dissipating off-white head. Aroma is floral resinous funky hops with a nice caramel pale malt back. Taste is more towards the hoppy note with just a hint of maltiness. Solid, well rounded IPA.

Can by the pool in Gatlinburg. Not a bad IPA at all. Decent bitterness punch with a little pineapple and a lot of resin. Fine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home, thanks to an IP trade with Stuart from AL - you wait all this time for an AL tick/waiting for buses etc! 16/03/14.
Hazed orange amber with a good sized off white head.
Nose is bitter orange, toasty malts, peach, straw, faint pine, caramel, hop notes.
Taste comprises pithy orange, red grapefruit, light pine, dusty hops, toasted bread.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in a semi drying close.
Fairly simple and clean IPA but ticked all the boxes for me, easy drnker and refreshing stuff after the first grass cut of the year!

Decent session ipa. The nose is probably the best part of this beer with hintsof floral and citrus. Dry palate and thin mouth feel. Poured from can.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can via trade. No date code. drank from can. Very cascade like aroma. kinda dirty citrus nose to it. no idea what it looks like. I see a little white foam in the can. Taste is initially a pungent dirty, earthy hop with some light citrus. A slightly crackery malt taste. Just short of that dusty Munich malt taste. Finishes with a peppery note in the back of the throat that I will assume is some weird hop thing. dry finish. Solid, for Alabama

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can courtesy of trade. Darker in color than most IPA’s, cloudy with a large white head. Nose is of burnt toast and spicy hops. Taste is resin that goes right to the tip of the nose, not very well balanced with the bready malt underneath. Finish is hard and leaves an off taste at the back of the throat.

Tap. Copper with small white head with nice lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus (grapefruit) hops and malt. Medium body with pine hop bitterness upfront with a light malt presence and a slight bitter finish.

Had on tap at lunch at Sa Za in Montgomery, AL- most local IPA they had.
Poured a nice copper color with a thick white head that leaves decent lacing. Served at perfect IPA temp. Pretty strong hop on the nose- very citrus and some floral. Same notes on the tongue - really well balanced. Not overly hoppy- the sweet and bitter play nicely in this one. Better than I expected.
