This is a great Brew Pub in Athens. The food is good and the beer is Cold. They have crisp looking pint glasses to go with the great beer. Great IPA
Draft at the source. Hazy golden amber, massive white head. Aroma of peppery fruit. Taste is similar. Very earthy. Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Cask ale dry hopped with plenty of Fuggles (?). Poured a dark orange with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Taste is also heavily hopped, with a fair malt backing. Finish is lightly bitter. Mouth is pretty full. fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Dark brown in color. Off white head. A little citrus, pine and "green" in the aroma. The beer tastes pretty malty and a tiny bit sweet. Bitterness is nice and medium and goes well with the malt level. jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Another impressive brew from this excellent Athens brewpub. The IPA poured surprisingly dark, somewhat of a brownish copper shade, with an off-white head. Aroma is dominated by citrusy hops. Excellent IPA hoppiness, bitter but with nicely-proportioned flavors of citrus and pine, with a good balance of malt sweetness. Good thick but quenching mouthfeel. aracauna (3705) - Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2003
This wasn't the surprise that the Kolsch was, but that's mainly because IPAs are typically good beers. Kolsches are often crappy and bland. This was a fairly dark IPA, a dark copper body with a nice off-white head that lasted for a while. The aroma is sweet caramel malt and floral and piney hops. The flavor is fairly sweet and thick malt backed up by a smooth bitterness from the hops. This isn't a hop monster, but it's also not a wimp. Pretty tasty, but not world class.
