keepersj12 (2886) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Lots of malt to start with sweet caramel and bread. The flavor has the malts with a nice hop bitterness. Well balanced tasty.

demondeacon09 (48) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Without a question, the best IPA that Ive ever had that was made in Tennessee. Citrus with a punch of pine following in the aftertaste. A very good example of an IPA that is enhanced by the fact that it comes in a can. Get you some!

SpringsLicker (3235) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Can local beer mart. Clear medium yellow with a white head. Lots of floaties. Fresh tropical fruit & citrus hop aroma. Solid light bitter hop flavor that goes all the way to the finish. Nice one.

BadAprilia1000 (348) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a dark orange amber color with a average head. ARoma is pine, citrus, hops, grapefruit forward, some mango, caramel malt. Taste is much smoother with caramel then expected, not as hoppy as the head but still present, not a whole lot in general going on though. A good session IPA but nothing overly impressive.

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2015
Draft at Edleys. Golden pour. Soapy head. Spicy hop aroma and flavor. Strong hop bite. Tasty.

Suttree (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Orange, mostly clear but a few floaties. Smells great - grapefruit and mango, some other citrusy notes. Taste is citrusy hops, some subtle caramel and resin. Very drinkable. Dry, woody finish. Ill be drinking this again...

decaturstevo (5394) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is citrus hops and light caramel malt. Flavor is semisweet malt and a good resiny bitter finish. Medium body with good carbonation

Voodoo (415) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a pillowy white head which lingers.....aroma of grassy citrus and sweet bread......taste is quite bitter, overwhelming the dry hopped cascades (sadly) and a bit of a wet grain taste. Aroma is far better than the taste.

nearbeer (4061) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 23, 2015
12 oz. can. Pours out with lots of entertaining and active little sea monkey yeast bits that sustain a loose bubbly head. Aroma of pineapple, caramel, evergreen resin and citrus zest. Taste is resin, toast, bitter woody pith and orange honey. Light-medium body is soft and has a long dry finish. Medium-high carbonation is mostly smooth, but gets too fizzy at times.
