COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

Thanks to shp555 for this. Pours a hazy orange with a long lasting white head. Aroma of orange and lemon, some light pine, and some faint brown sugar, maybe a trace of white chocolate. Big tart lemony hop flavor, with some bitter grapefruit tingling the throat and breadcrust coated in brown sugar for the malt. Definitely tangy. Finishes with a nice grapefruit bitterness, with a roasted almond fade. Medium, just shy of light bodied, and a good creamy mouthfeel. A little on the tangy citrus side for me, but still not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 bottle courtesy of ucusty...thanks! pours a hazy brown shade of copper topped with a fluffy off white head. giant aroma of grapefruit even before my nose hits the glass...hints of pine and brown sugar but mostly grapefruit skins and flesh. the palate is a bit on the sweet side but not overwhelmingly so...more grapefruit and caramel flavors with some hoppy spiciness and yeasty dryness. really simple straight forward beer...nothing flashy or complex. if i lived in GA this would be my go to brew especially fresh from the taps!3.7

second fresh bottle from ucusty. this time around there’s an odd vegetal note in the flavor. i’m also picking up malt powder and ashiness... more malt than hops in this one...3.6

bottle from tbs/tbc...rating stands. caramel sugary hops with a bunch of grapefruit in the aftertaste. solid...

Bottle. Pours copper, light haze, small white head, with nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, citrus, but the pine is so strong that it almost smells like cat piss. Flavor is very hoppy, but one-dimensional, sweet caramel maltiness, grassy aftertaste.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a hazed apricot with a finger of lively white head that dies rather quick and laces nice random sheets. Awesome smell. Floral, piney, juicy hops with grapefruit. Taste is a delight. Big hops, rind, grapefruit but backed by some malt that finally gives way to the hops at the end for nice bitter finish. Light in the mouth with the perfect amount of carbonation. Drinkability...lets just say if I lived in the ATL, this would be my drank all day, every day. Give this one a shot and be rewarded..

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Golden-amber color with a smallish head. Aroma is powerful with a nice grapefruit-floral quality to it plus some sweet malts detectable. Flavor has a nice citrus hop balanced against some sweet, but subtle malts. Nice, but the flavor faded too quickly and didn’t quite live up to the great aroma. Not bad, maybe a super-fresh bottle would do it for me.

radagast83 (8059) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Bottle thanks to my friend bringing some back this way. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium sized head. Aroma is of citrus, pine, and hops. Taste is very very crisp! Grapefruit, and other citrus notes, along with a long lasting finish.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Bottle. HAzy copper with lasting medium head. Nice strong citrus and hop aroma. Taste? Hop, hop and hops. But you shouldnt expect less from an IPA. All in all smooth and light and a good tasting IPA

nearbeer (5413) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2010 12 oz, bb 1/20/08. Clear, darkish copper with a medium-sized head that lasts. Aroma is strong grapefruit, pine and catpiss. Flavor is mostly the same with some hints of dry cereal and resin. Palate is light-medium, dry with hops and too frothy-airy.

3.7
jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2007
pours a light tan head that bubbles and cloudy orange/amber color. Aroma is pine needles/citrus hops then sweet grapefruit comes through. Taste is pine needles/pink grapefruit rind-hops with some bitterness, secondary/faint medium malt. OK/mild carbonation.
