3.9/5 rDev +11.4%
Tasted On: 04-252014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Single from Midtown Wine & Spirits, Nashville
Appearance has a semi-clear dark copper beer and a tall offwhite head, with excellent lacing and head retention.
Aromas are a wonderful blend of citrus and pine hops with a nod to lush tropical fruits.
The hoppy bitterness greets you first off, which is later joined by some malt in the background to help keep things in check. But the key element here is indeed the hop bitterness.
Finish is aggressively bitter, with a piney hoppy aftertaste and medium body. My only complaint would be some astringency in the finish.
Overall a very good IPA and it's great to see another Nashville-area brewer bring bottles into the retail market!

Had this on tap at Cool Springs in Franklin, TN.
A- One finger white foamy head on a clear golden copper body.
S- Very strong citrus notes, mostly tart grapefruit.
T- bitter hops, white grapefruit, sweet malt flavor, with a piney finish to balance the tartness of the grapefruit.
M- Moderate carbonation.
O- Great beer! Not only is the name amazing, but the beer itself is delicious and sure to please any hop head like me! :) I could drink this all day!

Single finger head with decent retention on a very clear copper body. Excellent lacing. Aroma of wet socks, musty caramel malts, earthy hops and tart grapefruit. Flavor follows with a little more malt forward than hoppy character with simple caramel malt base and mildly complex mix of citrus and earthy hops having a clean finish with notes if syrup and brown sugar. Medium and slightly oily body and moderate carbonation. Great beer name. Nice brew at an excellent brewery

Thanks to Deuane for sharing this growler on 10/3/10.
A - Poured a slightly hazy deep amber/orange with a frothy off-white head that produced lots of spotted lacing around the glass.
S - Pretty straightforward aroma combines floral and perfumy hop notes with a sweet malt presence.
T - Initial flavor is quite malty with hints of perfume and floral notes, giving the hop character quite a bit of sweetness. Caramel malt and honey notes add even more sweetness to the pot.
M - Medium bodied and scantily carbonated, resulting in a kind of thin and watery mouthfeel overall. Finishes sweet on the palate with very little lingering hop bitterness.
D - Definitely one of the best named beers I've come across. Wish I could say the same about the other attributes, though. Overall, my pecker is still intact. I found this to be a little too sweet and malty with a muted hop presence.

Poured a very orange color, with little head and no lacing. Very bitter cloying aroma, with a huge citrus and slight grassy scent. Very cloying taste, with an over-abundance of citrus hops without enough malt to back it up. Not a bad finish, but not very hoppy and not very deep.

stopped by Cool Springs Brewery for the first time today. sampled 4 of their brews and went with a growler of their IPA.
pours a cloudy amber that is a little darker than most ipa's I've seen. nice frothy head that doesn't hang around long. leaves good amount of lacing all the way down the pint glass
smells of pine resin, hops, citrus and floral bouquet. almost a hint of sweeter notes in there, maybe caramel
taste much like it smells. starts with pine, citrus, & light hops. almost no flavor stays on the palate. its like the flavor profile dissipates and leaves you with a watered down lite beer taste. tries really hard to make a comeback as the beer warms but ultimately lacks depth.
light to medium body with an average amount of carbonation
this is an average ipa at best. I was excited to buy a local beer brewed here in Nashville and really wanted to like it. lacks that depth that the better ipa's have achieved. don't know that I would buy again.
