3.47/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Poured a nice glowing golden color with good carbonation and a nice little white cap, and some lacing.

S: Mainly citrus and booze.

T: Starts off with a nice grapefruit, orange zest feel, booze and hop bite round it out.

M: Thin body for a beer weighing 9.2

O: Average for the style, plenty of hops and taste and not enough depth to hang with the big boys I drink routinely (387 characters)

4.04/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 32 oz growler into tulip glass.

A: Deep yellow with slight one finger head. No lacing to speak of.

S: Big citrus, alcohol, and hops. A bit of piney resin.

T: Grapefruit, orange peel, bitter hops. Alcohol is apparent but enjoyable.

M: Medium body and fair carbonation. Was looking for a bit more head on this one, but otherwise very nice.

O: A very solid IIPA. Very hop forward but nicely drinkable. One of my favorite local IPAs. (447 characters)

I really love this brew. Poured a bright golden yellow and slams a massive hop punch up front to the palate. The brew is very smooth for a big DIPA and has a great mouth feel. Just the right amount of hop oil and well balanced. If you are a hop head looking for an awesome hoppy local brew you have found it in this one. Also try their Tobacco Road Imperial Amber wow delicious. (378 characters)

3.5/5  rDev n/a

A - A dark dark brown to copper. The inch of head settles into a light thin froth. 3

S - Smells of resiny hops and sweet biscuits. Slight hint of figs/rasins. 3.5

T - Bitterness is the forefront with a slight maltiness and an odd herbal tinge which fades into a liquorice taste that lingers. 3.5

M - Light body with medium carbonation. 4 (341 characters)

I was left wanting nothing on this except another pint. Perfect taste. Well balanced. Would highly recommend. I don't know what more to say other than you should give this a shot if you appreciate Imerpial IPA's. The balance of flavor really exploded your taste pallet and goes well with most anything. (302 characters)

Always glad when this one appears every year. Filled another half-gallon growler and was rewarded at home after filling a couple of 24-oz glasses with a very healthy fine-foamed head, aroma filled with citrus and hoppy goodness. Brewer claims 6 lbs hops per barrel, glass feels like that much character at least, very clean flavor and no unpleasant after-taste. This one feels very dry on the palate and the high ABV is anything but readily apparent in this smooth and very drinkable Yellowhammer DIPA, a classic "lawn mowing" beer with bite.

This is what I consider a good everyday beer, not too heavy and nothing negative to make you search elsewhere. Consistency is a bit thinner than the Stone products, but this is a good daily brew for hot summer days and nights. There are some rosemary pine accompaniments that enhance the character, but overall a very simple and drinkable ale I could consume on a regular basis. (923 characters)
