3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden orange with moderate white head and not much lacing. Aroma is not pungent, but has floral hops, grains and orange rind. Taste is slightly sweet at first with hoppy bitterness and slight spiciness coming out a bit in the finish. Body is light to medium with average carbonation Very easliy drinkable with a crisp mouthfeel. Iím glad I finally got to try a Georgia beer, but this one doesnít stand out in any way, good or bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pous a clear gold with a high, mixed-grain, just off-white head with lace. Nose is not very pungent -- that big pillowy head dampens it -- but what there is is orange and floral notes. Some hops bite up front followed by Sunny Delight orange sweetness behind. A little hard cheese umami follows. Low carbonation. Finish is really brief and mostly unremarkable. This is OK, but Iíve had better.

12oz bottle. Pours amber with a foamy off white head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is of hops, malt, grass, and pine. Taste is of floral hops, pine, and grass. Has a lingering, bitter hop taste. Itís so very grassy. Medium fizzy mouthfeel. Has a decent taste and it drinks easy. Nothing that will blow you away, but it drinks real easy.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours golden/ amber with a white head. Aroma of lemon grass and malt.. Taste is much lighter than I would have guessed from the aroma., Light hops, a bit sweet, but overall a sessionable Pale. Light body, light carbonation.

Keep coming back to see if there's something I'm missing but the 402 IPA just doesn't stand out for me. I would call it a competent, middle it the road IPA that is more crisp, and less bitter than others in this niche, but lacking other qualities that might set it apart.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle shared by my brother-in-law. Smells like grain, kind of like a cheap mass-produced lager. The taste is better than the aroma, super-bitter pine and citrus rind hops with not enough malt to balance it. Super-dry palate. Not a bad APA, but not exactly a good one. I am definitely glad I only had one of these.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice and easy drinking APA. It is slightly hazed orange w/ a thin head of fine white bubbles. The hop character is surprisingly floral given the varieties used, very lavender-like. This is try, crisp and bitter. Itís a medium bodied brew w/ moderate carbonation. Aside from the floral accent, this doesnít really hold many surprised--not that thatís a bad thing. I could down a sixer of this and thereís plenty of hops and thatís pretty much 100% of what I want from this style.
