COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big, joyous celebration of all things hoppy (5 different varities). Large flavors and aroma of pine, citrus, flowers, spice, pineapple, and grassiness complimented with a touch of biscuit and caramel backbone. Our most requested beer.

Growler consumed same day. Amber color, massive beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of pure pine. Taste is very bitter pine resin. Rough trade!

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, citrus, pine, and resin hops, pear esters, papaya and mango. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, light malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

LCBS 2010. Thanks JW. Goldish pour, nice white head. Grapefruit peel in the nose all the way. Flavor has the grapefruit peel, some malty sweetness. Damn good beer.

hopscotch (8544) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Can… Murky amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet furnishes notes of caramel, toffee and citrusy, spicy, earthy hops. Full-bodied and silky with gentle carbonation. The flavor is a tea biscuit and caramel foundation that is totally overwhelmed by medium to heavy, grassy hop bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish. Kudos to biggsbowler for sharing!

Really good beer, huge citrusy notes, dry, nice bitterness, diamond in the rough.

Milk jug courtesy of jzzbassman. Pours a mahogany/brown with a thin but prominent tan head. Smells of caramel, resin, pine, peppery. Tastes earthy, sweet and bitter with some resiny splashes on the finish. I’d like more hops in this one, but an enjoyable drink. The first of what I hope will be many big beers to come out of Alabama. Congrats on the new legislation!

on tap at MM, golden color with tall off white foam, aroma of tropics and malt, flavor is nice florals, grapefruits, malty with a bit of too much bitter metal on finish for me

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Growler shared by Jim I believe, thanks! Poured a hazy yellow gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of bitter pine with a slight grain backbone. Flavor was very similar with bitter pine throughout and a slight grain backbone.

Had on tap in Birmingham. Aroma has a hint of alcohol and so does the flavor. Otherwise the flavor is mostly sweet including citrus hops and some malt backing.
