Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
Clear golden copper, nice fluffy head. Nice aroma - grapefruit like #12, but more spicy, too. Flavor is mostly grapefrui and pine, with dry, crisp finish. Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle pours a golden amber body with a lacing, off-white head. Smells of cotton candy and citrus hops. Flavors include citrus and spicy with some honey. Finish is bitter with some sweetness. kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2009
(draft at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition) Orange amber with white head. Huge pine/citrus hops aroma. Flavor is pine and citrus hops (and more hops) - a bit unbalanced. BelgianBeerGal (4175) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle in Nashville less than a week old. Really nice, easy drinking IPA. Both the flavour and aroma remind me of pink grapefruit juice that starts sweet and leaves bitterness on your tongue. illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle from Midtown. Fresh off the truck and Nashville’s first bottled IPA (at least for me). Pours orange amber with a slight haze and a two finger off white, very pale yellow head- webby lacing. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very nice floral hops and grapefruit aroma, with more caramelly malts coming out as it warms. Medium bodied, but lighter in the mouthfeel getting very close to watery on the finish. The malt profile is a tame blend of caramel, biscuit, and tea while the countering aggressive bitterness gives off flavors of orange and grapefruit rind. The attenuation is average, perhaps a bit more than I prefer as more sweetness may make this more "juicy." Dry and hoppy finish with lingering pine and resin. Overall a very nice IPA
Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle from Woody’s Smokes and Brews. First hop project in the Brewmaster Series. Pours a clear burnt orange amber with soap sudsy white head and good lacing. Aroma is the best aspect of this brew. Nice and fragrant floral and somewhat small notes of pine. Flavor is bitter earthy hops with some citrus qualities. Thin body and a little slick on the tongue. Long lingering grapefruity bitterness. But a damn fine IPA. Way for the local guys to represent!
