Draft. Poured a hazy copper with a small off-white head. Aroma: hops, malt, pine, citrus. Taste: pine & citrus hops, passing notes of vanilla, fresh fruits, solid malt backbone, finishes with a nice bitter bite. Medium body, good depth, great lacing. Overall a excellent IPA.

Had this one draft @ the J. Clyde after drinking their Pale Ale. I’m a big fan of drinking a brewery’s Pale Ale followed by their respective IPA to note differences/similarities. A - Pours a very nice rich orange/copper color with a generous head and plenty of lacing down the glass. S - Plenty of deep hop aromas of a spicy citrus flower bouquet. Very nice. T - Really enjoyed the flavor. Full of spicy/earthy/floral flavors with generous bitterness. This is certainly a hop dominated taster but does have some malt sweetness show up to balance it out a little. Not just a hopped up extension of their Pale Ale, truly a unique IPA. M - Nice feeling beer. Not too thin and not too hefty. Carbonation and head are very appropriate for the style. D - Certainly an IPA and not one for those that aren’t fond of the style, but a sessionable beer for those that fancy an IPA (I had several).

I had this beer for the first time at the J. Clyde in Birmingham. The beer pours up with big, rocky head and has a deep ruddy hue. The aroma is rather intensely peppery and floral. The taste is terrific willamette IPA and it shows. It has a strong herbal spiciness, followed by a moderate floral aftertaste that really lingers. Singing backup is a rich, malty sweetness that makes this beer very drinkable.

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.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2011
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!

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2012
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.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2012 Good looking can. Pours copper. Piney and citrusy with a little grass. Slightly hazy. Dry and crisp. Could definitely drink out of the can this summer by the pool.

Great golden color, with tiny bubbles and a thin head that hangs around. Great citrus notes

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.
