Im Glad to see this brewer appearing in TN. I also enjoy the label depicting the long journey from England, around Africa to India. I poured the 12oz single into my trusty Sierra Nevada tumbler pint. The brew is perfectly clear, the body amber with a hint of straw color. The pour resulted in an aggressive, sticky, white head, nice strands of lace and great retention. The nose is great. The hops are green, juicy, leafy, citrussy, piney and sticky, the full compliment of a great IPA, these aromas are of course backed up with a respectable sweet malt backbone which combined with the hops is reminiscent of a ripe juicy cherry. Up front its lightly sweet and slick, quickly though the bitterness of the large dose of hops takes hold, not bitter enough to hurt you but assertive. In the finish the bitterness fully unfurls and is accompanied mainly by citrus flavors, but a nice dollop of pine sap as well which retains a lovely after-taste. Very well balanced, in that IPA kind of way. Is there alcohol in this? I sure cant taste it. Mouthfeel is good, but maybe a tad on the light side. No doubt this is a great IPA, glad to have it available around here!
