Served in an IPA glass. Great color and smooth finish. Hard to find a good IPA in Nashville and this is the best so far.

Poured into a tumbler from a 12 oz bottle. Bottled on 12/20/14 so it's not as fresh as I would hope.

Color is dark gold, almost amber. It's hazy with a one finger cream head that dissipates into clumpy islands. Decent lacing. Smell is earthy hops and biscuit. Smells like a hops cookie. Taste is similar - it has a lot of sweetness that balances the earthy hop flavors. Finish is mildly bitter. Body is lighter than I expected with ample carbonation. Overall, it's very drinkable, but being a hop-head it's a little on the sweet side for my tastes.

Bronze-coloured, very malty, too strong for me.
