COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American style IPA is medium bodied and definitely has that citrus flavor and aroma we’ve all come to love. Coming in at just under 7% ABV we hope this IPA sets the tone for our new brewery in the Atlanta market. Slightly sweet, very hoppy, crisp but unfiltered, we know this one will leave people thirsty for more.

draft. taco mac. pours a cloudy gold with a stable, creamy white head. sweet malty nose with vanilla. flavor is surprisingly malty for an ipa. lots of vanilla flavors and some bittering hops. palate was medium-full and very creamy. i liked the fullness of the beer and the appearance but it could use some more hops for an ipa.

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey-golden with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma has a firm fruity undertone. Richly hoppy yet scarcely bitter flavor has a citrus undertone with lemon and grapefruit notes and a hint of pear. Fizzy, edgy, lively texture leaves a fruity and hoppy finish. Best of luck, Red Hare - may you hop into prosperity and success!

16 ounce pour - $5.25 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Copper-hued body, quite hazy, and topped with a very thin, snow white head. Small scattering of lace on the descent.

Smell: Mostly, it’s just a grainy nose with some small hints of pithy citrus. Given patience and time to warm didn’t change things, it’s just not the perkiest of aromas.

Taste: A firm, harsh graininess overlaying the pale malt base and barest hint of lightly sweet toffee. Citrusy hops push in, pithy, lightly tasting of white grapefruit and with some supporting resinous elements. Moderate bitterness. Very drying, still quite grainy, and lightly bitter finish with an enduring pithy hint.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: This one started with the exact same husky, graininess that their Long Day Lager had, leaving me, for a brief second, to wonder if I’d somehow been served the same beer. It’s got that astringent quality like there’s some oversparging or overboiling going on. I’d say some tweaks are needed here, but, who knows, maybe this is what they had in mind.
