1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
The whole 6 pack was severely flawed by a metallic taste, which can come from a variety of causes. The bottles had a bottled on field on the label, which was left blank. I have never tasted a beer with such a huge overwhelming metallic flaw as this one. I assume it was a bad batch, based on other reviews.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Trade with drowland - thanks! Pours a sightly murky dark orange with a thin but sticky eggshell white head. Aroma has some fruit salad accents, a touch of spruce and mint. Flavor is full bodied and tangy with some citrus bitterness, some maple syrup sweetness, a bit of nuttiness and some cake mix sweetness in the finish, Mouthfeel is full and sticky. Pretty solid.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance of the beer comes off with a nice hazy orange tint to it, no sediment, with a mild creamy head that clung to the side somewhat, decent carbonation. (almost like a hefeweizen). The smell is a mild citrus smell and has some residual hoppy smell too (IMO the worst part of this beer but I dont buy beer to smell them). The taste starts off mild until you swallow then you get a nice hoppy taste with some malty flavors to it too (a nice combination that isn’t overpowering but maintains a good taste). The mouthfeel is a very nice hoppy holdover, again, not overpowering but lingering well. Overall, this is a very nice beer from a brewer that I have not experienced before. If the rest of their beers are brewed this well, I look forward to trying more of them. My best friend was kind enough to bring me up a sixer from Charlotte and I have asked him for more of it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Bottled 05/01/13. (Beverage World) Fort Oglethorpe, GA.
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Very mild aroma. Weak. Some sweet hops... Sweet hops, mild bitterness and malt in the flavour. Quite strange IPA. Weak. No good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy (lots of particles) orange with a little head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is caramel malt with some feint citrus along with other indiscernible notes. Taste follows the nose with perhaps some grassiness mixed and a strong bitterness that lingers. Medium bodied. Definitely more malty than the West Coast IPAs which I prefer. I have no trouble drinking this one but there are way better IPAs out there.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear old gold, good 2-finger head, sheet of lace. Taste is caramel malt with a big dose of citrus hops. The malt is strong enough to re-emerge at the finish. Grows nicely through the palate. Solid, malty and hoppy, good drinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Not the most biting or cutting edge IPA flavor. There’s actually a little caramel and toastiness in the middle, but the bitter hoppy IPA comes through in the finish. I’d love to try the oaked!
