4.25/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Served up a well-hazed, medium amber-hued body with a medium-small, creamyish, off-white head.
Smell: Initially, a sniff of caramel squares, then, inviting citrus hop notes, florals, some stern-looking resins, and, then, another closing hint of caramel.
Taste: Sweetish, malty caramel flavor propped up by toasted grains joined by resinous floral tones and pithy citrus accents hinting at times of lemon, at times of grapefruit. Moderate bitterness. Mild alcohol presence. A bit more caramel prior to the bittersweet, citrus-hinted finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth.
Overall: Good stuff! There are some shades of DFH 90 Minute here, I feel.

16oz growler, served at around 45F. Kegged in November 2012 if memory serves.
Pours cloudy amber with a two finger off-white head that leaves nice rings of lacing and recedes to a light cap.
Aroma is oranges, orange marmalade, citrusy hops, melon, caramel malt, a hint belgian-y. Good strength.
Flavor is orange marmalade, melon, fruity hops, decent bit of caramel malt with some sweetness, average bitterness, light alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, oily, good carbonation.
Strikingly similar to the Ezekiel’s Wheel...almost makes me wonder if it is Ezekiel’s, but the keg is marked as Cannon Dragger. Lots of fruity hops and almost a Belgian character. Pretty good, but awfully expensive for what it is. I know they’re an upstart, but their pricing is pretty extreme.

12oz pour at Wild Wing Cafe (Marietta, GA) 3.95. Served in a boring 12oz cylinder glass.
Pours deep red orange with a soft clingy half finger of pale head. Sheets of lacing throughout.
Smells of robust citrus and pine with some sweet malts in the background.
Taste delivers on those big citrusy hops. Grapefruit, orange zest, pine resin and slight mango with sweet biscuit and peppery in the finish. The booze is well integrated, being noticeable but never distracting.
Oily slick medium full feel with average carbonation. Long bitter pepper grapefruit aftertaste.
Another outstanding brew from Burnt Hickory. With an IPA this robust I'm really looking forward to trying their imperial IPA. Highly recommended.
