UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 An amazing take on an IPA. I smell citrus and spicy floral hops with the sweet malt in the background. I also get that unique potent hop grapefruit smell that you can only get from whole cone hop beers. The taste is spicy hops up front ending with the malt sweetness that gives off some cinnamon brown sugar malt tastes that mixes in with the citrus bitter grapefruit dry hop at the end. The whole flower hops are a unique twist to this IPA and you can tell the difference between this and others of the style. To compare it to another beer Id say its close to how Sierra Nevadas Celebration Ale tastes. Excellent beer.

I am not big on aromas, but this one has a strong pleasant, hoppy scent with a hint of fruit. In fact I liked it more than the taste - which was typical bitter IPA, with bitter aftertaste. Not spicy (though it claims to be). I dont like spicy beers so this was actually a positive for me. Overall, it is better than some of the IPAs I have tried, though Troegs Blizzard of Hops has a better taste in my opinion.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Peachtree City. The appearance is a slightly cloudy copper color with a medium sized off-white colored head. The aroma is citrus hops. The taste is similar to the nose, citrus and some slight malt in the background. An excellent IPA.

Tried in bottle before, this time on tap at TNT. Unfortunately the glass it was served in had a stale B.O. aroma that took a while to clear, but once it did I got plenty of pine and sweet malts, old school east coast. Great looking clear bronze and lacing. Flavour as expected, piney and sweet, balanced well for easy drinking. Sharpish carbonation with moderate bitterness. No bells and whistles, just a clean strong IPA you could drink a few of no problem.
