3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky brown/orange body is a little off from what I like to see in an IPA, but the giant tan head looks great. Pine and fruit (apricot comes to mind) on the aroma along with a little bit of alcohol. Fairly classic American IPA hop profile on the flavor - lots of bitter pine along with some citrus. Mouthfeel is slick, dry, and slightly grainy. Good stuff.

"Well damn...this was a bit of a surprise. Dank hops, citrus weed and pine. Very well put together IPA that is a bit hoppier and more bitter than most but with enough sweet to balance. Good stuff."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce pint - Mellow Mushroom in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
Appearance: Coppery body with a tinge of orange to the hue. Modestly hazed. Slim, white head.
Smell: Slim, scant maltiness offers few aromatics, with the bulk of the nose being made up of subtly pithy, resiny hops.
Taste: Starts with a dry pale maltiness, a little crackery accent. Very little incorporated sweetness. Lightly floral, citrusy, steely hops with a restrained pine resin element. Moderate bitterness. There’s no late-breaking sweetness, leaving the beer to finish as dry as it began with its bitterness carrying over into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Falls on the lighter end of medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Found it a bit mediocre, a little bit drier than preferred, but by no means bad.

Really nice IPA. Copper brown, piney, sprucey hop aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet malts, then dry, piney, oak finish. Very clean, as well. Very tasty!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells amazing! Really draws you in with the aroma. Little light in the body IMO. Taste is a little different than most ipa's and I don't know if that is good or bad. I can't quite put my finger on it. All that being said for a brand new brewery this is a good first starting lineup so I look forward to their growth.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amberish gold with a fluffy white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma and taste of earthy and citrus hops up front give way to a solid caramel base. Kind of sweet for an IPA with a bubblegum like taste underneath it all. Slightly bitter earthy hop and caramel malt in the average length finish. Light-medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation. Good IPA. Nothing groundbreaking, but good.

I've had a lot of IPAs. It's my favorite style of beer. This one is just meh to me. Carbonation is a little strong. It pours a nice honey gold, and smells alluring at first. However, the hops are a little over the top. Your taste buds will be severed for at least 30-45 minutes after consumption.
