On draft when visiting the brewery before Noogfest High Five. Hazy mustard pour. i found this to be extremely bitter. Some celery notes. Overly lingering bitterness. Not a big fan of this one. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Appearance: Very lightly hazed, dark gold body with a smallish, white head.
Smell: Smells of extra pale malts with a teensy hint of honey, some strong, wafting florals, as well as touches of grapefruit pith and resin.
Taste: Mild taste of modestly sweet light pale malts. Boldly floral, along with sharp tastes of citric grapefruit and pine resin. Assertively bitter. Finishes drying and longly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.
Drinkability: No more than an acceptable, decent India Pale Ale. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2009

Sample at brewpub. Poured a redish orange color wih an off-white head, lots of lace. Aromas of pine, citrus, sweet malt. Taste is similar, with a bit more malt than in the aroma. Mouth is full and the finish is bitter. Overall, a decent IPA. decaturstevo (6240) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Hazed light brown pour with clinging thick head and lace. Aroma is bread and evergreen. A pretty hard bitter lacking a little in malt. Thin, watery, light bodied. A bit out of balance.
