Draft sample at the Third Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Orange in the glass with an off-white head. Light hop aroma with a backing of caramel. The flavor found a nice citrus hop with hints of pine and caramel. Medium body and medium bitterness throughout.

Guy at a bar said this was 46 but honestly, I donít know. Poured clear gold. Aroma of grain and some citrus, didnít really seem fresh, so maybe it was 46 considering they are on 48 or 49 now. Taste was pretty much the same, little fresh hop character, more grain and grassy bitterness. Decent, just not that great.

Bottle from Midtown Wine and Spirits, in Nashville. Pours a hazy copper with a fluffy, off-white head that leaves behind a cascade of sticky lace. The nose is a combination of earthy/herbal and fruity/blackberry-like hop notes with a solid pale malt backing. Medium-bodied and soft with a transition to a significantly bitter and slightly drying finish that squeezes the side of your tongue and holds on long after the swallow. The flavor is an interesting hybrid of English and American IPAs: up front, the spicy, earthy/herbal English hop notes hit and then peel back to reveal "brighter" complimentary fruity hop notes that combine into a deeply spicy yet lively IPA experience. I donít generally care for English IPAs, being drawn more toward fruity, piny and floral hops, but this beer brings a nice balance of flavors to the mix and itís solid bitterness satiate my hop addiction. This is an interesting beer, and I really like the idea behind the series/project. Itís just too bad that I donít live in the area to get a chance to sample more of these releases.
