Very good IPA. Good fruity, hoppy aroma. OK light amber/golden appearnce. Medium white head. Good lacing. Hops arenít too overpowering, but good. Pretty sweet taste. More people should try it.

Apricot nose and aroma. Very hoppy too - but somehow edgy and unbalanced. Short finish - not that good.

Wow. What an aroma! Big, juicy, leafy hops make the salivary glands set to working. The flavor is more big, juicy hops, but thereís not a lot of bitterness. The body is a tad thin with the malt being overwhelmed by the hop bloom, but oh the glorious hops. Clear dark golden body with an ok white head.

GA 14% gathering.
The pour produced a clear yellow beer that supported an average sized white head. The aroma was an even balance of light hops and malt. The flavor was balanced as well, but lacked the degree of assertiveness that I like in an IPA. Clean light bitterness towards the finish.
Iíve got another one to try at a later time, but I was a little disappointed in this one as the Blind Faith IPA they brew is a winner.

Pale gold, not much head to speak of. Pine forest / lemon grove aroma. Piney, cedary, woodsy hop bite through out, then (rather surprisingly) finishes clean and crisp with little aftertaste.

Clear golden with a thick lacy white head. Aroma is fresh, bold and hoppy with some earthy malt presence. Smooth and sweet body has a bitter bite toward the finish. Kinda reminds me of a toned down version of Stone 7th Anniversary. A good, drinkable, and fresh IPA. Thanks to SpringsLicker for bringing this to the Georgia 14% gathering!

Pours nice amber color with a small white head that diminishes quickly. Nice IPA with a good balance of maltiness and hops in both the aroma and flavor. Somewhat metallic finish mars an otherwise good beer. Medium to full body, and creamy carbonation.

This smells EXACTLY like lemom palmolive detergent. Well this is off to a strange start already. Yellow color with a light head. Iím not catching alot of hops in this one. This tastes more ike a run of the mill APA. The mouthfeel is watery and bland. Easy drinking and little else. However you will not get dish pan hands! Decent.
