3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mostly clear (hard to tell even with wiping the glass--the beer is a bit too cold and there’s a lot of condensation on the glass here in the ATL airport) classic golden color with a fluffy eggshell colored head. A pungent grapefruit citrus hop nose. A bit of a nice biting texture with an astringent finish. The tongue is left feeling coated. Competing grapefruit and pine flavors with an adequate yet, uninvolved malt backbone. Nice.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of dunn4040. Pours a hazy golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma that is dominated by grapefruit but with notes of tangerine and pine present as well. The flavor begins with malt and is washed over by grapefruit and tropical fruit hops bitterness. A combination of fruit and pith. Leans towards the lighter side of medium bodied. Enjoyable.

Slightly cloudy orange pour with a large, frothy white head. Aroma is primarily citrus with a bit of sweetness. Flavor has a lot of orange peel and grapefruit, even some apricot. Nice resinous, hoppy finish. Pretty big flavor, I likeit.

Had draft from my local Taco Mac. Orange hue with a slight off white head.Aroma of pine and grapefruit, with maybe a little apricott. Pine and citrus hoppy taste that blends out to a small bit of malty sweetness. Aftertaste is more pine hoppy goodness. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp. The hoppiness will creep up on you the more you drink this, and it will start to feel like an imperial by the end of the glass. 74 IBU’s according to Jekyll’s website, so it is on the higher side of a normal IPA, but slightly below most imperial. Overall a great beer from a newer brewery, and a welcome addition to the southeast beer scene!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is my first beer from Jekyll Brewing, a new craft beer brewer that started rather recently here in GA. Pours a pale honey orange with a thin white head. Aroma is big notes of pine resin, tangerine, and grapefruit. A nice clean fruity IPA scent. Flavor is also very citrusy with dominating flavors of fresh grapefruit throughout. The hoppy characteristics sit in the background, letting the citrus flavors really take center stage. Moderate sweetness keep it balanced. The Georgia beer scene is full of rather dull IPAs, and I kind of figured this would be just another one of those. It surprised me though. This is probably the best non-imperial IPA I’ve had from the state. Very solid beer. Looking forward to seeing what else the people down at Jekyll put out over the coming years.
Edit: Turns out this was my 100th beer rating. Go me!
