Thanks to alcfron for passing some of those Georgian beers on to me! Translucent copper orange color, sufficient head. Fruity citrus nose and a taste that starts off sweet then the hops kick in immediately but are not overpowering. Has superfine sediment present. I could drink a few of these.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 My friend Paul is just the greatest - I asked him to bring back any kind of beer from Atlanta and we could split the cost - He brought me back a case and a half of beer - 10 different labels in all! This is by far the winner - full of sweet (peachy)/citrusy(grapefruit) hops, but still amazingly well balanced - a big malty goodness is in this bottle. Also helping out is the nice golden color, great head, and webby lacing that grabs on to clumps of head. This is a nice quality brew.

Thanks to Brewbandit for a couple of bottles of this. I had one a couple of months ago and it was too fruity (Peach, Apricot?) for me. Since I was told it was fresh I thought I let the other bottle age a few weeks. The fruit taste did mellow a little bit, but it was still to overpowering for my taste. If it was a fruit I liked it might have been different. If there was any other flavor besides the fruit I couldn't pick it up.

Amber pour with a medium head. Nice sharp bite! Great citrus, floral and hoppy flavor and aroma. Not the best IPA, but quite good nonetheless.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2004 Copper color with a large head. The taste is very complex with some oranges, apricots, spices, and pine. An aroma similar to, but not as awesome as, Stone IPA. Floral and citrus all up in your nose. A nice bitter hop punch. This is far and away the best IPA brewed in this wonderful beerwasteland of the Suthrn' US of A.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky amber topped by a big, rocky, off-white head. Nice pine/grapefruit aroma balanced by decent peachy sweetness and yeasty/spiciness. Taste is hops -- pine/floral/grapefruit, decent malt backbone, medium sweet (there's that hint of peach again), finishing resiny pine (gives a great belch). Very drinakble -- I gulped this one up in no time flat.

A nice, flavorful IPA. Grapefruits dominate the flavor, with mnay types of hops. Aroma of flowers and citrus. Nice, lasting head on a dark golden body.

Thanks to brewbandit for this one. This has a floral hop aroma, a dirty-blonde body and a nice lacing. The flavor isn't as hoppy as I would like, but there is a nice malt backbone, a mild sweetness, and a slighty, woody character to it. Dry, citrus finish. This is quite enjoyable.
