Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is hops. Nice malt base with earthy hops. Middle of the road beer, ok tasting. Don’t get the 420 comparison. Sporadic lacing.

Forgot and thus the beer was served in a frosted glass, even the foam froze. Light amber, small foam. Light hoppy aroma, all killed by the cold. Nice bitter taste. (New Orleans 201505)

tmoreau (3054) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2015
On tap at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL. showing a presentable layer of soft white head foam that reduced to a persistent ring & film, and left some sheet-like lacing on the glass. The nose was mainly perfumed, floral, and herbal, with maybe a bit of citrus on the back. Ditto on the taste, including a lingering, deeply earthy and herbal hop bitterness that I never would have guessed as Centennial & Cascade initiated. Medium bodied with decent carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish. Interestingly hoppy and sessionable.

Light clear gold with a thin head and lots of sediment. Smell is floral, perfume with some citrus. Taste is clean, saltine cracker flavor with some hop crispness, some catty/savory character and a hint of caramel malt.

Can from dq mini mart. Straight out the can. Aroma of malt and hop, not too bad. Tastes horrible little to no hop notes over powered by malt and metal taste. WTF silver eagle distributors.

Pale yellow, light white head. Strong orange citrus nose, light tropical fruit, some pine resin. A bit of biscuity malt, honey. A good bit of bitterness, but mostly malty. Lighter body, decent amount of carbonation, some acidity. Very clean. Fine.

ccex (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2015
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. I’m glad I finally got to try a Georgia beer, but this one doesn’t stand out in any way, good or bad.
