Another very strong effort by aviator. Very strong hop profile and a relatively heavy, unfiltered IPA.

Not that that's a problem. Even with strong hoppiness, it still retains a sense of balance (unlike say, some of the green flash IPA i've had on tap).

Very pleasant to drink, but to me comes across as not much of a session beer or something you would drink a few of casually (like say, the Carolina IPA made a few miles down the road). While this is, overall, a very stong beer, I still think the Pale Ale is the best thing Aviator has made so far.

Serving type: on-tap

Can from Tipples. Pours a pretty, clear amber orange color with a small white head on top. Aroma of strong caramel malts, some bready notes, citrus notes, some mango. Flavor is some stale hop notes, dried grass, light citrus, lots of caramel malts, on the sweet side but still a bit of dankness here. Meh. Body is resinous and a bit juicy with medium carbonation and mild bitterness on the back end. Eh. This isn't terrible but with everything else available in the style that is excellent. out there, I don't know why anyone would choose this one.

Poured out of a can into a pint glass.

A – Deep golden yellow pour with two big fingers of white foam that sit in top like a ice cream float. Nice looker. Sticky lacing all down the glass.

S – Very floral smell with pine aromas, resin and citrus. Pleasant and stong.

T – Nice amount of hop bite right off. Grapefruit type of bitterness follows along that compliments it well. Not overpowering. Piney and earthy flavors. Finishes off with just a touch of sweetness. Solid all around.

M – Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation rolling around the palate. Finishes cleanly.

O – Very nice IPA. This is a damn easy drinker. Picked up just one can when I was in Savannah and wish I had a couple of more. I can see this being a great BBQ beer or just an easy drinker on a hot day.

A: This poured a nearly clear gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like nectarines and oranges and pine, with some sweet honey malt.
T: It tasted like bitter pine and unripe grapefruit, with some oranges and honey. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nice IPA, with simple but good scent and taste and body. The finish was bitter but otherwise smooth, so not difficult to drink. Nothing special about this brew, but not bad either.
