Bottle at the Savannah Mellow Mushroom. Pours with a thick, mushy consistency. Has an opaque rust color and a firm standing head. Drinks with a thick orange malt essence and a nice alcoholic kick. Not bad for a Southern brew ... definitely a sipper. (#4706, 7/24/2012)

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Murky dark orange pour, sticky off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has some nice patented spruce notes with a hint of citrus. Flavor is bittersweet with nice citrusy grapefruit and some passion fruit essence. Malty, nutty back end to balance it out. Smooth, somewhat thick mouthfeel. Pretty decent.

I wonder how a beer like this would do in a blind IPA tasting, because sometimes I think beers benefit from lowered expectations, and sometimes they tend to get pre-judged because there from a brewery that everyone had decided is mediocre. For example, this was a nice, fairly sessionable IPA that seemed as good as IPA from breweries held in higher esteem. I liked it, and would get again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp copper and bronze coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright floral and grassy hops with some herbal notes and a good bit of malt in the mix. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral flavour at first with no malt at all - just some dry hop notes and no depth or backbone. Aftertaste shows more of the hop residue with nothing substantial behind it - just an airy herbal and piney hop flavour with no malt to grasp onto. Overall, a pretty poor offering - the hops show decently, but without any malt, there isn’t too much to this beer - subdued and grassy and that’s about it. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 18-March-2014.
