Pint from draft at Mac McGee’s. Pours a hazy gold with a decent head. I took several sniffs trying to get some distinct hops. I’d say competent pale ale more than IPA. I do get some grassy and citrusy hops along with metal and caramel, but it is mild. The flavor has a smooth grassy/bready thing going on. Not bad, but it doesn’t achieve IPA status. emarkd (100) - Georgia, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Glad I finally get to try something from Jailhouse! Bottle pours cloudy orange with a big rocky white head. Great looking beer. Aroma is quite mild and malty with earthy and bready notes. The hops are there, too, mostly pine. Tastes much more assertive than it smells - pine, citrus, spice. Quite bitter with good carbonation. Lots of bitter aftertaste lingers long. Solid ipa from an exciting new local brewery. jw0406 (1316) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2011

Slightly cloudy orange, thin white head. Piney, caramelly aroma. Very woodsy and dry flavor. Some notes of caramel in the background. Maybe a touch of honey, too. rajendra82 (1109) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2011
The hazy, amber, body was topped with a very large head, that started off at 3/4 glass tall and finally ended up at 3 fingers thick. The smell was far less assertive than most IPAs, as the hops seemed to be floral and delicate. The taste was also indicative of milder hop strains, as the bitterness was very much in check, allowing an earthy, herbal hop character, and a sugary malt presence to emerge. It was a flavorful combination, but not typical of the IPAs, I am used to sampling. The aftertaste was herbal, and a touch spicy. The body was decently sticky for the style. Easy to drink as a result of the simplicity and delicateness.

<Bottle> Thanks to aracauna for sending me this. Poured a nice copper body with decent head. aroma is faint - light hops. Flavor is a nice balance of hops and sweet malt. Nice full body on it. This wasn’t an extra hoppy IPA but it is a welcome change after the hop bombs I have had recently. bu11zeye (13288) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2011

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is fruit, a little bread, tart, and hops. Taste is bitter, grassy, light spice, and a little more fruit. Dixonian (1657) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2011
22oz bottle thanks to ericandersnavy.
Deep copper color - aromas of citrus, mostly grapefruit. Aroma is lacking a bit but the flavor makes up for it - quite balanced.
