Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a glass.

A: A light orange/copper color with foamy white head.

S: Fruity hops, pale malts and some earthiness.

T: A nice balance between citrus fruits of the hops and the sweet malts that make up this beer. Fresh tasting.

M: Medium bodied. Easy to drink, fresh and clean.

O: Overall this one is a winner in my book. I like it, and on a hot Atlanta day this beer is an excellent choice. Smooth and clean flavors that work well with each other. I will gladly take another!

Purchased at a grocery store in Birmingham Alabama. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a pretty good head. Golden unfiltered goodness

S- Lots of hops here. A bit of caramel

T- Very good with a lot of finishing hops. Super easy drinking and not bitter like other IPA's

M- Dry and crisp

O- Very good. Like this one a lot. Wish I could get it in Canada

Food Pairing

I tried this wonderful IPA with... smoked beef brisket, it didn't go well at all.

Enjoy
