Great drinking beer. Reward yourself with a frost mug sensation. Pure Bliss. Go to Mellow Mushroom and enjoy a draft. Best local beer hands down.

Had plenty of this in both bottle and on draft during a recent vacation in Panama City (a virtual beer desert). Pours a muted amber with a firm white cap. Lots of citrusy and perfume hops in the nose are well balanced. A fantastic caramel back cradles the hops in the body, both in perfect harmony. This isnít a hop bomb or a malt monster. It is a perfectly balanced session beer that I would drink again and again. Fantastic example of an APA.

I really enjoy this beer. Hops are crisp and citrusy. Good color and head; this beer has substance. If you see this in the store or on tap, its definitely worth a try.

Itís always a bummer to get local beers as part of a Beer of the Month Club shipment. =( Appearance: Copper-orange in color, with tiny white sudsy bubbles comprising a thin head. Smell: The scent is fairly tender, even after giving it some time to warm up and awaken. Still, though, thereís a delicate aroma of light fruits (orange zest), bread, and honey. Taste: Citrus hop flavor is low and nicely balanced with a modest amount of sweet malt flavor. A gentle grassy hop bitterness provides for a nice finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation (almost spritzy at times). Though itís a simple, mild beer, it is still crisp and pleasantly refreshing. Drinkability: A good choice for a local session beer, and quite pleasant on a rather warm late-Winter day. So, thatís it. Another beer from Georgia. And now, time to go back to... work. Ugh.

(Bottle (best by 7/3/07) via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=2 target=blank>CaptainCougar, thanks Tom!) Kind of a nice hot weather beer...Pours slightly cloudy yellow-gold with a rocky off-white head. Aroma of bread, vanilla, fruity and flowery hops. Mouthfeel rather watery, a bit prickly. Taste is bread dough and hint of vanilla overlain with some hop fruitiness and light floweriness. Kind of a bitter tang through finish. Pretty hoppy. Nice refreshing kind of beer.

12 oz Bottle: This was a pretty tastey beer. It;d been far too long since Iíd had a good APA, and thats what this is. A good solid, APA. Nothing out of this world, but above average on all counts.

Courtesy pintocb. Clear gold and a large frothy, white head. Spicy, floral, lightly resinous hops with nearly enough malt to balance. Aroma is similar but muted. Finishes a bit grainy. Medium/light body, balanced, very drinkable. Decent pale.

This was a nice beer. It poured light golden brown and had a firm head. The aromatic notes certainly pushed through with light hints of citrus and hops. The moutfeel was outstanding and just the right balance of bitterness and crispness.
