Pours a hazy amber with an off-white foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit/hops, some spice. Lively carbonation, smooth and creamy, medium bodied. The flavor is grapefruit/hops, clean and refreshing, pungent. An excellent IPA.

Cloudy amber in color with an off white colored head sitting atop. The aroma of this IPA greatly encourages the user to take a big drink. Not so fast now! Aromas include delectable floral hops and a wonderful biscuity malt sweetness. The user is justly rewarded for his imbibing. Nice sharp hop bitterness on the front end is very suitably balanced by a dash of malt sweetness in the finish. Great daily drinker, this one rates with another of my faves, St. Arnold Elissa.

Thank you to Brooklyn Boy for this. Pours turbid coppery with a medium, creamy white head. Aroma of hops, malt, citrus, and fruit. Tastes malty, hoppy, with some fruit and spice in the finish. This one isn;t as overtly hoppy as other IPAs Iíve had, but it has some extra fruitiness and fullness in the finish. Very good.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a cloudy orangish-golden color. Some floaties in there also. Mine didnít have much of a white head to it. Nice hop nose, mainly of graperfuit, but some spiciness and maltiness come through also. The taste is a good balance of hops and malts. Just a bit bitter. A decent IPA. Thanks to Cap. Cougar for the trade!

Nice white head, medium density, great retention. Cloudy orange color, excellent appearance. Medium body. Taste is medium hops up front with some nice creaminess. A little roasted flavor comes through in the end. Nice fading bitterness. A pretty good IPA.

Dark copper pour, decent head and a massive amount of sediment. From the aroma, I know Iíll like this one. Some nice hopping in this one. The taste does not dissapoint. Citrus with some floral notes and a nice malt presence to support it. Dry, mildly agressive finish. Very well put together. This is a top notch IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty orange/amber color. This one is bottle conditioned so theer are floaties in the bottom. The head is biege with big bubbles. The nose is on the maltty side with some spicy hop character. The flavor is well balanced. The seem sto be more of an English-style IPA to. Given the Georgia brewing contraints, this is a very good effort.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2010 12 oz bottle-thanks go out to Belgianhomebrew for this one. pours an orange hue with lots of yeast floaties. very acidic hop aroma with tons of carbonation. Lots of hop bite on this one, but not much malt to speak of. pretty astringent and attempts to be stone ipa lite. This needs more malt to be a top ipa IMO.
ReRate-Man, i had a religious experience with this beer while waiting for a flight in the Atlanta Airport. It was fantastic! deep orange huewith a sudsy soapy white head with awesome lacing-huge floral nose-pineapples, grapefruit, tropic and leafy (almost cannibus ish) flavors exhibit the citrus here with a good late bitterness to dry things out. This is a world-class IPA that everybody needs to try fresh. bottles dont do this thing justice!
