Big thanks to Jason for bringing this one to DE for me!

A: Pours a clear orange color with a 1.5 finger, foamy white head on top. The head is rather sudsy, and lasts for a little bit before dissipating to a thin layer of foam on top. Thick and sticky lacing coats the sides.

S: Nice and juicy on the aroma with some orange, grapefruit and a bit of zest along with some pine. A bit of bready malt, but not much. Nice, bitter aroma.

T: Nice and hop-forward. Lots of orange and tropical fruits. Hard to pick up a specific flavor from the malt, as this one is hoppy. Nice bitter/dry finish with some pine at the end.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. On the bitter side with a dry finish.

O: A very nice IPA, hop forward with only a bit of malt to keep things in check. Surprised it was 7.3%, if it were a bit lower could be a staple IPA in my fridge any day.

Poured into a pint glass at The Mellow Mushroom in Savannah.

Appearance: I like the hazy orange color to this, almost orange juice-esque, with a slightly foamy white head at the top, due to the generous pour from the bartender.

Smell: A lot of good citrus sweetness here, with some honey and flowers, backed by some balancing pungent earthiness and citrus rind bitterness.

Taste: Good initial flowery sweetness, some nice balanced sourness, honey, caramel malts, and a nice finish of bitterness that works well with the honey and flowered sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Lighter to medium-bodied, with good crispness and carbonation on the back end.

Drinkability: An all-around solid IPA that I'd certainly try again. Not your average IPA, but I like it a lot and would try it again in the future.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a Gordon tulip glass. Body is a pretty golden-orange color with a half-finger of creamy white head that slowly settles, leaving some nice lacing. The aroma is big on the citrusy hop profile, balanced nicely by some lightly sweet pale malt and a honey accent.
Palate is hop-forward, with notes of grapefruit and a hint of grass. Pale malt emerges on the swallow, bringing a sweetness that helps balance the bitterness of the hops. The finish retains some major citrus character, with a lingering biscuit malt base. Body is full and a touch creamy, but not sticky, which is nice. A very tasty, assertive offering from a solid brewery.
