3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got this at the 16th St. Albertsons this evening... Pours with a 2 finger lite tan head.. the brew is clear red/amber... splotchy
Nose shows big American hops... citrus and pine are unapologetic... Hops are big and fresh and sorta pummel the caramel/dark toasty malty notes.
Flavor is not as good as the aroma IMO... seems a bit watered down compared to the big nose... light toasty elements hit a good piney/grapefruit hoppy bite.
Body is lighter than expected... carbonation is good... Despite my above negatives, this is a well done beer.

On draft at Gibney’s in Atlanta. Pours red (shocker!) with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly malt with some lightly grassy hops. Flavor follows with sweet malts, caramel, bready, a little grass in the backdrop. Medium light body, medium carbonation. Definitely not an IPA here...really more of a not-so-hoppy red ale. Pretty decent nonetheless.

Nearly opaque crimson colour, mid sized head. Very nice malty aroma with notes of hops, citrus, caramel, and spice. Creamy and quite full bodied for an ipa. Absolutely delectable. Creamy malt, caramel, and dried fruit dominate the initial taste, but the finish is wonderfully hoppy just as I had hoped.
