3.38/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

16oz pour. On tap at Taco Mac (Alpharetta, GA). 5.25. Served in a pint glass. 

Clear deep gold with a quarter finger off white head. Consistent lacing. 

Orangey citrus, fresh cut grass, mild spice and sweet bread. Pretty standard. 

Crisp citrusy hops lead. Other usual suspects follow: grass, spice and biscuits. Like the nose, pretty standard. 

Feel is medium to light with moserate carbonation. Long dry bitter herbal hoppy aftertaste (not at all bad, though). 

I'd remembered liking this more when I had a six pack about a year ago. Perhaps there was a recipe change when they started contract brewing with Thomas Creek instead of Atlanta Brewing. There's absolutely nothing wrong going on, but there's nothing to make it stand out in a world saturated with great IPAs. I'll most likely have it again (& even enjoy it) but will not go out of my way to find it or request it over multiple other, better Atlanta IPAs. 

Serving type: on-tap

Clear yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing. Aroma is a mixture of pale and light caramel malts along with some lighter citrus hops. May be a touch of citrus zest. Taste is more of the same. Light sweetness with an appreciable, but not overbearing malty backbone. Sweet citrus and sweet orange hops. There is a mild green apple jolly-rancher quality to the beer as well. On the lighter side of medium in body. Lighter bitterness. Moderate carbonation. A fairly average, run-of-the-mill IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an orange amber hue with a small off white head. Aroma and Taste is of floral citrus hops, yeast, fruity notes with caramel malt. Palate is a medium body, nicely balanced malt and hops with good carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, yeast, fruity with floral pine hops for balance. Overall a good nicely balanced IPA.

3.58/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into hort tumbler glasses; drnk at 45-55 degrees over 10-20 minutes.

Clear, deep amber with good retention of a cottony head.
Smells like a French Sauvignon Blanc more than a beer—grassy, minerally, and volatile nitrogenous bronze.
Malt is the foundation of the taste experience atop which sits metal, nutmeg, orange, and as it warms, toasted lentils and beans.
Not much impressive about the mouthfeel, but late in gulps, the rear-tongue burn is welcome. Salty pretzels give this beer more appeal.
Overall, it is not representative of the style. But there is a winey richness that keeps one quaffing. It is also more boozy than the 7% ABV would predict.
