Poured into a snifter

A: Clear amber. An off-white, one finger head that dissipates to a foamy top. Curtainy lacing.

S: Picking up grapefruit, pine resin. Citrusy.

T: Smooth, sweet. The light hop bitterness is quickly replaced by a sweet malty finish. Very sessionable.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: I really wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. The hop/malt double tap really combines for a very drinkable barrel of monkeys. Would drink again.

Another excursion into the world of 'Bama brewed beer.

This has a very chewy hoppy tone to it. Pine tones are there. Bit of resin. It's a bit tight really, but I like it. Nice feel. Good drinker. Yet another good brew out of Alabama. I've got a few more from this brewery in the lineup and I'm looking forward to them.

Superb appearance. Head has staying power! Poured this beer into a tulip glass, walked away to put a pot of water on, pulled the veggies out of the fridge, the pasta out of the pantry, and fired up the laptop to write this review; when I walked back to the glass, the head was still as thick as when I walked away. I watched it for another two minutes and then poured the rest in carefully. Great amber color too. Aroma is of sweet grain and tangy hops. The taste is about the same as the aroma, with a bit more caramel flavor. Not great, but decent. Mouthfeel is pretty okay too. Good beer, but I wouldn't pick it up again. I must thank thatoneguymike for sending me this along with several other AL and SC brews.

can to a pint glass
dark gold in color with a off white foam
Had a hoppy, piney smell with some grapefruit to it
taste had a hop flavor that you get with an IPA, with a hop aftertaste that fades as a sweet finish arrives.. Great beer from Alabama cannot wait totry another at the beer fest in 11 days.
