This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

Pours a cloudy amber with a small head. The nose is malt, grass, and hops; the flavor follows with a nice blend of slightly soapy hops and biscuity malts. The best thing about this brew is the lovely, well-balanced long bitter finish.

Crockett (1076) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Pours deep gold/light amber, slightly hazy. Tiny sudsy head. Gorgeous fruity, flowers, grapefruit, sweet hop aroma. Big hop bitter but still friendly. Honey, grass, hay, lemon, soapy perfume. Notes of earth. Excellent balance from the nose to the dry finish. All the flavours complement each other and weigh well against the vigorous hops. The dry hop sure gave this beer a tonne of character. The taste "wave-length" of this beer is very short. Very clean. With alcohol being disguised with cunning genious. Fairly straight-forward, quite nice.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Pours a hazy yet bright red/orange color body with a foamy, off-white head. Earthy, floral aroma. Flavors are strong but not sour grapefruit with a tight floral finish. Very easy to drink from the second it pours and it just gets better. A very good IPA!

This is the beer that introduced me to the IPA style and it is the one that I am still going back to.

Draft at Music City Brewer’s Fest. Amber in color with a creamy off-white head. Tons of hops in the nose with grapefruit, orange, and flowers standing out. The flavor was not super bitter, but very smooth and relaxed with a nice citrus blend. The body was light and a dry texture. My favorite IPA of the fest.

Floral aroma, bitter taste of hops. This IPA is fairly strong up front with a nice fairly clean finish. Always a nice standby as its usually easy to find in Atlanta.

Nicely bitter! Has a murky appearance (not a bad thing) with a decent and lasting head. Heavy floral aroma and great bitter finish. Ummmm. Bitter.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2006 NIce golden color, nice aroma with a hint of fruit. Decent mouth feel, had a nice bitter hop after taste. A good pale ale not quite the normal pale ale though. Can’t wait to try it on tap.

Thank goodness that there is a time and space and that within this context two bottles of what one presumes to be the same exact thing exist. Had one on a recent evening and was cramming my nose in the thing and couldn’t pull out aroma one. As in previous times of sinus woes I contemplated using beer as a nasal spray. Upon that attempted rating all was diminished. I wanted a beer and I got that. I could tell it was okay and little more. I do believe I even though it to be good. This evening I can’t say that my nostrils have experienced a miracle, but I sure as hell got something out of this and those hops that I could sense tugging at my tongue came back and gave a very plesant greeting. Now, after all that I must say that the deep south might want to raise its head and acknowledge that California and other states have yet to fall into the ocean and thus statements of "mammoth IPA" might want to drop a notch. IPA that does this brewery proud, to be sure. I would love another. - good job.
