3.72/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: some lacing, and a small head, cloudy in yellow color.

S: Its a Pine tar bomb, as expected. Some malt @ room temp.

T: Again its a pine tar bomb, many love this and if so they will like this beer, very bitter, not as balanced as I would like to see in a TRUE IPA. Slight oily tasting but the booze is well hidden.
Somewhat what astringent finish. Again the malt is there somewhere, but its overwhelmed by the hops.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

O: A decent local not sure if its a single hop ipa, its not a bad beer, just not my favorite style. Still good and near the style.

On tap at The Flying Iguana in Atlantic Beach, FL.

Pours a light amber with a half inch head, and a smaller amount of lacing.

Smells like pine and caramel, and not much else.

Kind of a boring IPA. It's more pine based than citrus based, with a decent caramel backbone. It's decent but does nothing to stand out.

This one is medium bodied, with a crisp mouthfeel, and a medium level of carbonation.

Kane's Head High is better.

I had this one on tap at the Stonewood grill in Jacksonville. They head 5 or 6 handles dedicated to local beers and I went with this one.

It was served in a standard shaker pint. The beer is a bright gold with a thin skim of white head.

The nose is a mash-up of caramel malts, citrus and apple.

Initial impression is balance with increasing bitterness in the finish. Resiny hops and milled grains. A floral note and then a hint of alcohol heat.

The mouth is oily and coating.

I would have this one on a semi regular basis.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at the CCB Brewpub. Served in a pint glass.

A: Hazy, light gold in color, with a good 1.5-finger white head, and visible carbonation on the low side.

S: Low aroma overall. I get some biscuit malts, pine and citrus rind hops...but even finding these take a bit of work.

T: Pine and bitter citrus with some tropical fruit hops, on a good balance with the biscuit malts. Finish is moderately bitter only.

M: Lighter body for style, good carbonation sensation, but the alcohol is a bit too prominent for an IPA at this ABV.

O: A drinkable IPA but could use some tweaks in the recipe I think. More dry-hopping would help the aroma. It crossed my mind that the keg could have some age on it, but I've decided to assume CCB would keep an eye on that in their new business venture.

Thanks to aiptasia for the chance to try this one. First round of GatM 2012.

A-Pour is a slightly hazy golden copper with a nice frothy off white head that has great retention and nice lacing.

S-Hmmm. Lots of vegetal hop notes kind of take over here. Mainly this has the aroma of pickling spices and juice.

T-Kind of the same with the taste unfortunately. Off notes from the dry hopping maybe? Whatever it is, this one has an unfortunate vegetal character that you get from the nose. Bummer.

M-Medium bodied, good carbonation.

O-Not well done, I am sorry to say. Glad to try but this has a ways to go.

3.8/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: nice amber with a subtle orange hue. Quarter finger head which rapidly dissipates. Not a lot of lace.

S: sweet orange citrus. Little hops.

T: this is more of a piney IPA. For the amount of pine its not undrinkably bitter which is a nice combination.

M: moderate carbonation and medium body.

Overall: the drinkability is good. The pine aspects are fairly dominating but you aren't overwhelmed by the bitterness which is a nice touch.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - A small head of white foam on a slightly hazy, golden brown body. The head settles relatively quickly and leaves nice lace.

S - Pine hops with a distinct note of toasted malt.

T - toasted grain and bitter pine up front. Some grapefruit comes out in the middle. Finishes with thick, toasty malt and strong bitterness.

M - A somewhat thick body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - A solid ipa, it doesn't quite have enough aroma for my taste, but the flavor profile comes together nicely.

Poured a cloudy light amber with one finger of foamy white head. spotty lace on the glass. Smell: lightly tropical and citric, mild honey sweetness. Taste: light caramel, leafy, light citrus and stone fruit. Prickly carb, light-plus bodied. refreshing, would grab from time to time if available.
