look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Golden color slightly darker than a pilsner one finer head.
S: Average floral smell with hints of honey.
T: A decent taste but nothing real special. Citrus and hops are present but not over powering.
M: Decent amount of carbonation but light mouthfeel.
D: Very easily drinkable. A good session beer.
Big River is definitely worth the stop.
Serving type: on-tap

4.68/5 rDev +31.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: a light copper color, with a slightly off-white head and lots of bubbles sticking to and streaming up the glass.
Aroma: Sweet hops (as I would describe it, a gummy-worm taste-smell), and very piney. I detect a tad bit of malt.
Taste: Dry, piney and floral hops at the front, some nice maltiness in the quick middle, and then a super-dry and piney hop kick at the end.
Body: typical fluffy ale body, with a malty undertone.
Overall: Very well balanced with the hops. Not too bitter; not too sissy for an IPA. As somone who enjoys IPAs but who prefers malt-heavy beers, I have to say that this beer strikes the best balance given the other IPAs I've had in the past. Yet, it isn't too watery or subdued, as is the case with SweetWater IPA.

A: Good sized white head sits on a beer that is clear and dark golden in color. The head retention is very good and shows an attractive lace.
S: Aromas feature flowery hop notes with some citrus background.
T: The taste is a nice balance of the first malt impressions followed soon by hoppy bitterness. The hop flavors are of pine and citrus.
M: Somewhat thick body with an average carbonation feel, the beer finishes crisp and bitter.
O: Overall a very good take on the IPA from Chattanooga. I'd have this one again
