4.26/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A new brewery to the ATL area. 1st beer I have tried from Jekyll. Found this single at Total Wine. Impressive they are already showing up in the local stores.

A - Dark amber, with no clarity, not much head, and a bit of lace left clinging on the glass. Looks like a west coast IPA

S - Ok, aroma blows you away. This is not an amateur IPA. Huge Pine hop aroma, and probably dry hopped. Smells great!

T - Grapefruit and pine hops. Very well balanced with the malts. Damn good IPA.

M - Well carbonated and dry finish.

O - An awesome IPA! Very excited to have this new local brewery who apparently know what they are doing. Definitely better than a few of the "other" new local breweries.

4.23/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 ounce bottle -> Highlands Brewing snifter

A - cloudy medium gold with an initial one and one half inch head, excellent retention and excellent lacing.

S - Wow is this stuff aromatic. Pine, citrus, earthy notes, bread

T - Starts off smooth and mild but as the flavor progresses some definite citrus notes (lemon, orange peel, and grapefruit) manifest. It finishes with spicy pine flavored hops.

M - medium carbonation. Bit of an aftertaste

O - This is not a world changing IPA, but it is a good one. Available only in Georgia (or so I was told when I bought it at Hop City Atlanta), it is worth buying if you happen to be in the Peach State.

3.61/5  rDev -10%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance 3.75: Poured out a lovely, coppery gold. No real head, but decent lacing.

Smell 4.0: Great bouquet on this brew. Emphasis is on the piney hops, but there are a few hints of citrus in there as well.

Taste 3.5: Front is dry and slightly bread-like. Middle is flat and also dry. Finish is where a light malt and lots of hops wash in. Like in the smell, the emphasis is on the piney hops: lots of Chinook and maybe some Simcoe. Aftertaste is nice and saves the beer: great balance and very refreshing, "juicy" on the palate.

Mouthfeel 3.5: Good level of conditioning.

Overall 3.5: Good but not great IPA. The bouquet is outstanding, but the brew is far too dry for my tastes, especially the middle taste level. As such, I would recommend it for a try, but it is not a session-worthy IPA in my opinion.

Serving type: growler

4.11/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Clear golden copper hue with 2 fingers of fizzy off white head. The head lasts throughout the enjoyment of this beer leaving thick lacing all down the glass. Very good looking ipa.

S: Mild grapefruit and honey. Bits of vanilla mixed in.

T: Good hop burst with this one that finishes with a dry bitter finish. First a rush of grapefruit that blends with honey and smooths out to a vanilla finish that is on the dry tangy side. bitter tangy citrus aftertaste lingers for a while. Good balance between the citrus and sweet flavors.

M: Medium bodied ale. Nice carbonation blends the flavors from bitter to sweet and back to bitter again.

O: A solid ipa. I like the balance and the play between the bitter and sweet then back to a tangy bitter finish. Solid ipa that I would recommend to friends.

I have enjoyed numerous bottles, tap pours, and 2 kegs of this outstanding IPA. It is without a doubt one of my favorite local brews and one of my favorite IPA's period. This outstanding IPA has a generous mouthfeel w/o being too over the top, excellent hop balance w/o being too astringent, and always a fresh, crisp taste. Also, this beer has always been consistently delicious all the times I have enjoyed it.

Serving type: on-tap
