Deep copper ruby hue with a bright white head forming thick and leaves behind fine speckled lacing going down the sides of the glass. Aroma has pine, citrus, mildly minty hops. Not overtly hoppy but a nice green minty/pine/citric finish that doesn't overpower is found between waves of caramel hops within this beer. Sugar coated malts exist here lying between layers of sugary caramel malts and green vinous layers of fresh hops. I get tones of mint/herbs/and citric pine hop accents, this is no big hop character like a west coast IPA but it's a nice consistent vegetable green flavor going down. Full of chlorphyll flavor with a mild caramel malt content booze are hidden well. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied carbonation is even nothing to write home about. Drinkability is solid go for it, drink while it is still fresh.

one and a half finger of off white head sits atop a clear copper colored body. as it slowly recedes some lacing is left behind and a thin spotty cap on top is all that is left. smell and taste are both the same. they are filled with citrus and pine hops, with a bready malt body. mouthfeel is a little oily with decent carbonation and a medium body feel. a long dry finish leaves you wanting more of this easy drinking ipa. overall this is very drinkable, ingredients are subtle and blended well. nothing is overpowering in this beer.

Bomber bottle with more great Pinkerton artwork, but no sign of the old turtle. Just hops workers wearing lots of bling. No freshness dating noticed, served in a DFH glass.

A - Beautiful amber in color, brilliantly clear, lots of active carbonation rises from the bottom. Small white head fades quickly leaving little in the way of lace.

S - Pineapple, lemon, and citrus hops slap in the face. Just a hint of bubblegum sweetness in the finish. Very enjoyable.

T - Initial hops bitterness gets your attention without being harsh. Little in the way of malt, only enough to showcase the loads and loads of fresh hops goodness in this one. There are notes of pine sap, citrus, and earth in the hops flavor. So much flavor from the hops you'd expect 8+ percent abv, but this one packs them in with a much lower and drinkable 6.6... A bomb of a hop bill squeezed into an American IPA malt body.

M - Medium bodied, good palate scrub from the carbonation with a clean finish. You will belch pine for 30 minutes, but it's great!!

D - This one, for what it is, is exceptionally high. A bomber of this doesn't wreck your palate or your senses with booze. I may come off as a Terrapin employee with my reviews, but these guys and girls have this beer thing figured out in Athens, GA.

Amber orange pour with thin 1/2 finger of beige head. What little head there is does retain well.

Grassy nose with notes of herbs and pine hops. Lemon grass is big here. Fairly aggressive.

Hits with a cream feel, but quickly fades. Pine flavors with herbal, grassy notes. Nice tha tit matches the nose. Finish is not quite there. Should be richer. Lots of grass in the finish.

Not a bad beer, but not one that inspires a 2nd helping.

22 oz foiled bottle. $8 from Neds.

Appearance: Clear, bright, almost luminous orange amber color. White head has subpar retention, and lacing is also not the best. The clarity and color do make up for the other shortcomings somewhat.

Smell: Orange and grapefruit, pine needles, and a little dank. A little sweet caramel malt. Not sure what all this is hopped with, but I'm pretty there's amarillo in there-- its got that orange slice candy aroma. Smells green and clean and bright.

Taste: Not as exciting as I'd hoped after smelling it. Lots of pine and grapefruit in the flavor. Very sharp hops taste and brief bitterness, but this isnt super bitter-- at all. Flavorful, but not overbearing caramel malt, and a slightly spicy malt note too. Finish is just green hops taste.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat lackluster. A little too thin in the mouth. It could actually stand a little more carbonation (just a litle) too. Sticky resin finish.

Drinkability: I seem to always have too-high hopes for these fresh hop beers. This is a pretty darn good one.

A- Tan body with an airy off-white head

S- Hops! Floral, piney hops, some sweet hops under that

T- Some bready sweetness right off and then moves into grassy/piney hops finish. It's not overly hoppy, much less-so than the nose

M- Medium bodied, creamy and good carbonation

D- Incredible nose! Very easy to drink and a nice beer

On-tap at the Brick Store.

Pours a clear light copper color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of pale malts with large amounts of herbal hops and lighter amounts of earthy and light citrus notes.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Moderately dry pale malt flavors kick things off and quickly give way to equal amounts of herbal and earthy hop flavors. Midway through the sip slight amounts of light citrus and leafy notes join in, carrying through to a solidly bitter and somewhat dry ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this wasn't a spectacular beer but I thought it was well-balanced and did a nice job of showcasing earthy and herbal hop aromas and flavors. Worth a shot.

a massive quantity of beer which was consumed at barleys tonight, this one started the whole night off. this one was consumed on 11/06/2010.

pour is a nice medium amber color with a very good clarity to it that allows a ton of carbonation to be visible from the very start. the result is a nice inch of white head that sticks to the sides of the glass very nicely,

aroma is nice fresh hops. sticky pine is the most dominant with a good bit of fresh resin filled grass notes bouncing around inside as well. really nicely balanced for a fresh hop ale. nice clean flavor as well, not overdone in any direction. clean fresh hops, sticky resin and a smooth and even biscuit flavor mid palate. nice lightly dry finish leaves a nice taste of pine on the tongue.

overall very drinkable and a very solid ipa.
