12 oz bottle. It pours a orange color with a medium sized long lasting white head. It smells like pine with a little citrus. It has a nice balance between sweet and bitter. It has a strong grapefruit flavor along with a little citrus flavor and some pine. It has a strong hop bitterness without being overpowering. I really enjoyed this beer and look forward to drinking more from this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can--dark gold color with a nice size, foamy, white head. Lots of charming aroma, mostly of pine. It’s made in Georgia, so it’s got to be pine. You can add a little floral to the aroma too. The taste starts off with malt and sweetness, but just for a brief moment. Then you finish with the hops and bitterness. Grapefruit seems to be the dominate flavor. Excellent stuff from a place I never heard about!

So... What makes something a southern IPA and not a regular IPA? Brewed in the south maybe. Anyway
Subtle citra hop note. A little body odor
Looks fine. Lighter orange. Pillowy white head.
Taste is malty. Subtle hops. Earthy on the back. Clean.
Palate is light. Watery.
Call this a pale ale and I’m sold. Otherwise for an IPA... Nothing special.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
