A cloudy orangish pour with a thin head. Aroma is good with a fresh hops and citrus but also with some nuttiness and cloves. Good body and carbonation for this style. Taste is a bit mixed with a lot of bitterness and off flavors.

Apricot pour, white head. Aroma has some nice bright citrus hops, some grassy notes and caramel. Flavor is nice and fresh...citrus hops, some very light resin. Not overly bitter but not overly malty. Easy drinking.

Mini Growlerette from Hop City. First glass 7/7/12 on day of purchase. It was fresh but no real aroma or complexity of the malts. Second glass on 7/10/12 not improved. I’m sorry to say I didn’t love this beer.

Somewhat murky orange with white head. Fresh hops, pineapple, weed, soap. Good body/carbonation. Soft bubble gum, orange, and clove are overwhelmed by big hop bite. Enjoyable.

Growler. Served at around 45F.
Pours clear golden amber with a good off-white head that leaves really nice drippy rings of lacing and holds a decent cap.
Aroma is grassy and floral with notes of citrus and apricot, some bready malt as well. Good strength, but not blowing me away.
Flavor is nice citrus, grassy hops, a bit herbal, malt provides notes of bread and caramel and lends decent sweetness, finishes with good bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit oily, good carbonation.
Pretty good IPA from this upstart Georgia brewery. I definitely like this better than Monday Night’s IPA. Red Hare’s Lager is really nice and will be trying the Brown later tonight.

64oz Growler from GrowlerTown, HopCity. Orange color, small white head. I’ve never seen lace like this one before. Cream covers the glass all the way down. Aroma of sweet malts, not much hops in the nose tho. Tastes of flower blossoms, honey, and creamy sweet malt. Grain character lingers on the palate. Finishes dry, very floral, with loads of hop bitterness.
