This beer turned to crap after the 2004 release. I’m not sure what happened, but it isn’t worth drinking now.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a huge off white head. Aroma of pine, yeast, caramel malt and spices. Taste is earthy with an odd hop bitterness. Overall has a strange flavor with a semi sweet resiny finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another good beer from New Knoxville Brewing Company although the quality has varied a lot over the years. Might be hard to find outside of south-eastern USA. A refreshing, hoppy beer with a pleasant finish. Very clean with good balance.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours a huge three finger fluffy off white head with a light tan tint. aroma is sweet caramel malt with some hops. has a light to medium body with lacing that follows the beer but is overly carbonated. flavor is sweet caramel malt with pine hops. has a dry hop aftertaste and a little bite from the hops. an ok ipa a little bit watery between the switch from malt to hops. has a reddish orange color with some sediment as well. a little full and bubbly in the back of the throat. flavor tappers off a little as it gets warm but still ok. an average session-able ipa just needs a little less malt and a little more hops to be descent. it almost tastes like they used champagne yeast also that was kind of weird.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium amber color. Aroma is straight citrus, I mean there is nothing else lurking. Absolutely no lacing on this one. This almost seems as though they started to infuse the hops, got distracted, and just forgot. There is nothing to this beer. Not good

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 12 oz in quart jar. Slightly hazy copper with some red highlights. Medium-sized and creamy, lasting head that leaves a beautiful sheet of lace. Aroma is dried apricot with a hint of pine. Initial taste is similar with malty nut, woody, chocolate and caramel notes. Very well balanced, probably low rated because its not overhopped like most are looking for in an American IPA. This is more like an English IPA, but better! Updated Sept 16 07: It is a real shame that this brewery is out of business again. Just drank the last one of these in my fridge and it was great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, form trade with NachlamSie. Ok aroma, sweet. Sugar & cardboard. Little citrus too. Got kind of a funk as it warmed. Clean brownish orange color, small head with minor lace. Bittersweet flavor. Grapefruit, lemon, grassy, little bubblegum. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter grassy finish. Alright, easy to drink. Blindfolded I might of thought it was a pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 Bottle. Poured a metallic orange color with a white head. Tasted a bit of fruit maybe oranges and caramel and left a bitter metallic aftertaste. IPAs arent my type of beer but this is decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange, with a medium sized white head. The aroma was actually quite nice, lots of citrusy and floral hops. The flavor tasted like the hops were hiding behind a veil of yeast. Very muted and bland.
