This smooth, medium bodied American IPA will hit the spot. The intense citrus/pine aroma and taste is accompanied with a slight hint of caramel. After a huge dry hopping, one whiff of this guy will have you breaking out that old tie-dye and throwing on a best of album. Relive, enjoy.

Looks like Iím the first one to review this one. Had it on tap at Sticky Fingers. I was a fan of this one. Itís got the Amarillo hops which Iíve really been enjoying lately. It pours cloudy dark amber with a white head that leaves lots of lacing. Great aroma - floral and fruity. Taste is bitter citrus with a bit of caramel malt. Medium body and smooth drinking. Overall, an enjoyable IPA.

On tap @ Churchillís / Savannah GA --- Clear medium amber, 1/2" smooth head cover, hanging strands of lace. taste is slightly sweet malt that blooms in the palate, and then is joined by in aggressive dry hops. Both sides stay 50-50 to the finish. Well conceived, quite enjoyable.

Draft. Pour is a hazy orange with a medium sized off white head. Aroma full of hops, very citrusy, orangey. Taste is initially moderately bitter then shows off some grapefruit and orange zest hop flavors. Finish is quite dry and bitter, almost astringent. Thereís still a slightly weird yeasty flavor to the beer, can quite place it. Just has a homebrew taste to it. Not in an off putting way, but just a nuance there in the flavor.

On tap at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a golden orange with off-white head. Aroma is nice citrus diesel dry hop up front then a solid pale caramel malt background. Taste is more towards the bready grain, but a hint of pine. Nice standard IPA.

Feel: very smooth for style. Medium body; medium carbonation. atypical above moderate bitterness. Earthy hops ; strong English IPA. O relatively high bitterness with relatively low hop aromatics - not my preferred balance.

10/28/13. On tap at Churchillís in Savannah. Amber orange pour with a small khaki head. Mild hop aroma, a light citrus bite with a touch of dankness, but mostly malty with some caramel. Okay flavor, balance is towards the malty side - caramel, doughy, just a dash of citrus hop character. Not bad.

From the growler. Dark gold pour with a thick off white head. Big citrus and pine dry hop aroma. Medium body malt, clean with a nice citrus hop bitterness. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
