3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed in Tennessee with worlds weirdest liquor laws, can buy moonshine at liquor store but no beer, lol. Anyway best by 9/01/13 from gas station. Pours out a nice medium amber color. Smells like grapefruit, pine and a hint of tropical fruits. Taste more of the same big emphasis on grapefruit but never goes into sulphur or any off flavors. Tastes slightly of caramel malts. Mouthfeel is a touch thin but adequate. Overall a surprisingly refreshing and nicely puckering IPA in the middle of beer no-mans land.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle best if enjoyed by 08/23/DO934. Sweet nose heavy pine and chewy caramel, pour hazy orange with medium carbonation and a large and jiggling beige head. Taste unexpectedly strong (very strong) bitterness, but clean, with little bits of pith but not too much on the tropical side, much more pine with additional smoothed wood, combing perfectly with the yellow-green pixie dust of Goldings in a match made in heaven. Fullish body crisp and slightly smooth, I might like a hint of tartness but what is actually here works quite well. Cleans the palate, refreshes without aggression, a very nice change of pace in todayís equatorial world of IPAs. [2016.08.16: 3.7]

Drank straight from the bottle. Nice citrusy aroma. Lots of grapefruit and lemon to the taste with some pine following. Lively carbonation and a nice medium body. Very well balanced offering!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, purchased in St. Pete. Originally picked out to be my first Georgia beer, but turns out they are easier to find in Florida than I thought. Instead, it travels home with me, and I barely dodge the best by date. Pours a standard copper color with tons of foam head that lasts. Solid hop floral aroma. Flavor is juicy hops, and near absent bitterness. Overall very tasty. Didnít expect this IPA to be close to the home norm for me. Awesome.

Taste is medium bitter, slightly bready sweet. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky mouth feel. Finish is dry. Tasting notes of herbs, tangerine, spruce, baked bread and lemon zest. I enjoyed this one!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I detect mild malt and mild hops in the aroma, which is not very prominent. What I do smell is nice. The off-white head thins very fast while the amber body is clear and quite attractive. Itís got a nice taste to it. Thereís a dense quality to it; certainly no light beer. The malt and the hops are nicely balanced, so the bitter and the sweet are harmonious. The carbonation is a bit high, but not too bad. The burn fades, letting the oily mouth feel and hoppy aftertaste come through. This is the only time the hops win out, in the aftertaste. I would consider this the session brew, despite the somewhat high ABV for such consideration. Itís a nice IPA.
