4.2/5 rDev +5.3%
Let me just say first that this is my first beer to review. I have started trying many different beers over the past 6-8 months, but just decided that I should try and think about them a little more deeply than "I like it," or "it isn't my thing"
I picked up a six pack of this in Alabama (along with two others I will review soon) when I was there visiting my girlfriend.
Appearance: Brown-orange color with some clarity and a thin head that disappeared fairly quickly.
Smell: Nice citrus smell.
Taste: Strong citrus taste, followed by malt right after being poured. After having warmed a couple of minutes, the citrus taste mellowed a bit and became very smooth.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, light carbonation, slightly bitter but not overpowering.
Overall: IPAs have very recently grown on me, and this is one of the better ones that I have tried.

Thanks for my brother for bringing this back to Boston from his trip to Nashville. 12 oz beer was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange color with some clarity and bubbles coming through the glass.
Smell: smells good. It smells of sweet and bready malts, and then followed by tangerine and citrus aromas.
Taste: lots of citrus up front. Tangerine and grapefruit and then there is some caramel and bready malts.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, a little dry, medium carbonation, and a little bitterness.
Overall: Another solid IPA from the east coast. Love it. Wish they could distribute up here in Boston. That would be great.
