This was sent to me by Bulbman, so a big thanks to him for grabbing this one for me. The beer poured out as a nice copper color with a subtle haziness to it. The head is cream colored with a pretty good retention and sticky lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer at first gave off some big citrus notes reminding me of oranges. The taste is more earthy, it's got a pretty good malt and hop balance to it. The mouthfeel is decent, good carbonation to it with an almost medium body. Overall this beer is pretty nice, I'm looking forward to trying the imperial IPA sometime.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a hazy orange body with a lumpy butter cream heat that last and sticks to the glass. There is a big carbonation of bubbles that pop off the bottom and push to the surface.

S- The green slightly dank citrus hops are juicy with a woody character coming through as it opens. There are some caramel malt smells coming through as the beer opens in the finish.

T- The big green citrus orange hops have a gentle sweetness to it with the hops grown all the way to the finish. There is a nice pungency hop flavor that lingers with just a bit of bitterness, and some biscuit malt hints come through in the after taste aswell. As the beer warms there is a fresh pale malt flavor with some chalk notes under the hops.

M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with a tight fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This is a big full bodied IPA that has nice depth and some good malt support pushing through as the beer opens. It is very drinkable and thanks to coldchill for sending this to me.

12 ounce can -> World Market tulip

This beer pours up a deep hazy copper with a big two finger fluffy off white head, decent retention, and lots of sticky lacing left behind. Smell is mostly earthy hops. Taste is very full. Maltiness hits the tongue first followed by a spicy hop bitterness without a whole lot of grapefruit like dominates so many IPAs. I love the grapefruit, but this one is nice without it. Mouthfeel is kind of medium with a bit of an aftertaste. Good beer. Never would have a problem drinking more of these.

Hey, it’s another nice IPA in a can, and from Alabama to boot. Reviewed from notes, thanks to Hotmetal1.

Pours hazy, dark gold; kind of a weird, sudsy, fizzy head that doesn’t look particularly appetizing. Retention is so-so; decent lacing on the glass. Aroma lets you know right away this beer has a strong malt presence; the hops are definitely there, with herbal, piney, and citrus notes, but the malt is robust, bready, and sweet smelling and a faint hit of booze can be detected. The flavor nicely balances this malty caramel sweetness, assertive, bitter, pine-and grapefruit hops, and surprising but pleasant boozy notes.

Medium-full body for style; smooth, low-medium carbonation, solid mouthfeel. In many respects this beer drinks bigger than it really is; more like a DIPA in taste and feel, with nearly the alcohol to match. Solid but unspectacular, just slightly heavy-handed. If I lived in Alabama I’d be happy to have at least one local IPA of this quality that’s easy accessible though.
