Hoppy nose already. Aroma: thick caramel malts, mild roast, brown sugar, spices, yeast and a wham of american hops.

a light amber body with a fast fading white head. There was a bit of lacing left. Aroma of sweet caramel malts and nice resinous pine hops. Some citrus. Flavor was mildly sweet and generically bitter. Decent flavor, but kind of two-dimensional. Easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an attractive clear amber color, with half a finger head. Nose is subtle, but some citrus and pine. The taste is also pretty subtle - a touch of sweetness up front and goes immediately to the hops - but it is a pretty tame bite. Easy to drink, maybe a nice change from the hop bomb IPAs I have been having lately - so verdict is good, but nothing memorable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy dark amber, off-white head that stays awhile, curtain of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt that is joined in the palate by citrus hops that easily balance, but don’t completely cover up the malt. Not a power IPA, but a well-balanced Ale with good hops.
