Pours bright and gold with a thin white head. Aroma is full of resiny, sweet, and citrusy hops. Flavor is dry bready malts with piney bitter resiny hops. Finish is dry and bitter with hops. Mouthfeel is dry and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a full-flavored hop monster. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours and opaquely cloudy orange with small offwhite head. The aroma is orange, graham cracker, some lemon, and some hay. The flavor is impressively bitter, though a little bit shallow. Wood, pine, and herbal hops dominate. Bitterness lingers from the finish to the aftertaste. A slight butterscotch note emerges as it warms. Personally I would prefer some stronger citrus notes, but itís a decent beer for what it is.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Served up a well-hazed, orange-hued body with a full inch of near-white foam.
Smell: Well, it most definitely smells hoppy. Iíll give it that. Sharp notes of shimmering resin and moist lemon pith fill the nose. Supporting, background hint of lightly toasted, bready malts.
Taste: Lightly sweet pale malts quickly transition into a citric, pithy, resinous hop character and staunch bitterness. Drying finish filled with plenty of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Slight heft of oiliness to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: One for the hopheads. If youíre in the mood for a boldly bitter brew while stopping in at the Terminal BrewHouse, then this is one to reach for.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, cloudy copper with a great white head. The aroma is awesome. Lots of straight up PNW dank stank is goiní on. We got grapefruit, pine, mostly citrus leaning hops. Very fresh, very defined. The mouthfeel is medium with heavy emphasis on hops. Malts just play a filler role, barely providing some sweetness or body to showcase the bitter onslaught tantalizing my palate. The finish is dry and dank with hints at lemons, grapefruit and grass. IIPA? no. Neither the alcohol nor the volume in body is present. This is a powerfully hoppy IPA and gets plenty of praise from me as such. If it wasnít for damned Yazoo, this would be my favorite IPA from Tennessee.

Sampled from downstairs at the brewery. Thanks Steve! Hazy golden color is reminiscent of a wheat beer with decent fish eye white head. Nose is just a wonderful blend of herbal and citrusy fresh hops without bowling you over. Flavor is much the same with just the right amount of noble hops to balance out the west coast stuff. This might be my favorite of the brews from these guys so far, and may be one of the best pale ales iíve ever had!
