12oz bottle from Bullocks (Woodstock, GA). 8.99/ 6-pack. Bottled 12/18/12. Served in a Sweetwater snifter.
Pours deep golden amber with one full finger of fluffy head that laces well.
Smells of resinous grapefruit, pine and floral hops. Nice.
Taste follows the nose. Grapefruit, pine, faint pimeapple, floral, pepper and sweet biscuit. Crisp and tasty.
Slick medium feel and mildly oily with a zesty dose of carbonation. Long dry finish full of more tropical fruity hops.
Not sure why I don't drink this more often. It's a relatively cheap, year-round, widely available (even in local Walmarts and grocery chains) and freakin good IPAa but I only buy a sixer maybe once a year. Definately the best availabe local IPA and can hold it's own against most of the big boys (Two Hearted, Jai Alai, Centenial). Very much worth trying if you aren't already familiar.

Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.
A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.
S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.
T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.
M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.
O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Transparent orange with a single finger of fuzzy head. Not a particularly strong scent but a pleasant fruitiness. Probably the beers strongest trait. Not a harsh bitterness but reminds me of tree bark. A bit sour. Not so fruity for an IPA. Dry mouthfeel. Decent but odd.
