Albany, Ga - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, light off white head. Light spruce aroma, hints of caramel. Flavor has some resiny hoppy bitter citrus notes with some caramel notes, some nectarine sweetness a bit of back end nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a nice fullness to it. Better than expected.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Draft sample at 2013 Cincinnati Brew Ha Ha festival. Medium amber color, hoppy/fruity nose, taste like the aroma--flavor not as well balanced as it could be but certainly satisfactory. It’s good to see Alltech expanding its lineup of brews. Tasted on August 24, 2013.

Hazy amber beer with a tidy off white head. Minerally crisp palate. This malt base. Reasonable hops - orange peel and marmalade and fresh orange. Touch of lagerish paper. Finishes crisp. Much better than expected.

Bottle. Darker yellow with slight off white head. Some decent lacing on the glass. grainy nose. I’m a hop head but this is overbearing. The hops kill out the malt presence rather than complement it. 6.5 alcohol is not detected, but with the massive amount of hops the ethanol could be stronger with little noticability. I can’t believe I of all people am saying this, but it’s too bitter.

Can. Sweet malt takes the front with citrus hop aroma. Flavor of citrus and slight fruit. Good malt backbone. Mid to light body. Good balance. Smooth

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well balanced IPA. The hop flavor is lacking because of a stronger malt backbone. Very smooth but not a go to IPA

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can. Pours a massive head with a slightly hazy orange body and aromas of floral hops with a little soap and citrus. Flavor is tangy citrus, but kind of a not quite ripe persimmon bitterness to it that sticks on my teeth. There is an overloaded front of grain that hits mid palate and then gives way to an almost tart citrus presence.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light floral and light citrusy hops plus pale malts and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best, probably because it’s from Lexington.
