Bottled on 10/12/11.

Pours golden orange with a nice head and decent lacing.

Smells of straight up citrusy grapefruit hops.

Tastes like it smells with a little sweetness.

Mouthfeel is pretty light but in a good way.

This is a perfect IPA for a hot summer day.

On tap at ATL airport draft house.

A- Pours a clear reddish orange with a small off -white head. Does leave some lacing.

S -- Mostly citrus hops up front. Subtle aroma, but good.

T - Definitely hop-forward, but not a hop bomb. Again, mostly citrus but a bit of pine as well. A subtle malt presence throughout the taste. Finishes dry and pleasantly bitter.

M -- Medium mouthfeel with nice creaminess. Carbonation level seems spot on.

O -- A very good IPA,and one of the best beers I've ever had in an airport, but a step below the best of the style.
