Crystal and Munich malts provide balance for the perfect pint. Dry-hopped in the serving tank with Centennial hops. To the victor go the spoils… get your spoils today.

PorterPounder (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - on tap at the brewpub. Dark copper pour, medium thick off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma has some solid spruce notes with a a hint of ripening vegetables to go along with it. Flavor has the requisite citrus bitterness, some caramel malty notes, a bit of ripening vegetable funkiness. Decently thick mouthfeel. Solid IPA.

At the brewpub, deep amber color and modest head, plenty of hops, a bit more bitter than aromatic but certainly not thin.

jredmond (5031) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Draft at the brewpub with Linh, Scarlett and mom. Pours a clear amber copper body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is sweet candy and pine. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied with notes of sweet pine, light bitterness and candy. Too sweet overall. A lot of caramel dominating the hop profile.

b3shine (4447) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks solid; malty though. A transparent reddish brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of bitter hops and malt with an average mouthfeel. Grandpa’s IPA.

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2013
10/30/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. Mostly clear amber pour with a big khaki head that laces a ton. Mild hop aroma, dank, mild citrus, plenty of caramel, and even some biscuity chocolate aspect. Mild bitterness, some floral and piney hop character, but not much. Plenty of caramel and biscuit. Too many specialty malts. Meh.

Westmeister (1534) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Draft smapling. Pours a darker amber with off white head. Smell is dank florally and caramel malts. Taste is big maltiness, with orange, grapefruit, some pine. A bit too malt forward to be in my personal wheelhouse for an IPA, but still enjoyable.

GTAEgeek (1063) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2013
On tap in a flight at the brewpub. Cloudy, dark orange, with a small, beige head. Pine and resinous hops, with some hay and mustiness. Very bitter flavor, with little malt backbone. Medium body, and rather harsh. Overall, this is a harsh, difficult IPA. Meh.

This was my second beer on my virgin trip to the Wrecking Bar. Unfortunately, once again, I thought the beer was just alright. I don’t know whether it is logically inconsistent to call the hops obtrusively overpowering and the flavor bland in the same sentence, but I appear to have done it. Poured darker than expected. I could see how some could enjoy this flavor, but it was just a bit anodyne for my palate. Will probably give a second look in 3-6 months. Draft - Wrecking Bar Brew Pub - Atlanta, GA

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Pours clear copperish amber with white head. Aromas bright citrus, some tropical fruit, caramel, and fresh hops. Flavors of grapefruit, mango, caramel, and good dose of bitterness. Something between the hop bitterness and malt profile don’t really jive but was still a decent IPA overall.
