Pours a foggy gold with a white head and lacing. The taste and aroma are both very piney. There are some citrus flavors as well, but they are not as strong as the pine and bitter flavors. Pretty light bodied as well. Overall, a pretty good beer.

12 oz. can poured into a plastic cup.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Big off white head. Nice foamy surface.

Smell - Floral with some citrus. Big biscuit and toast malt. Sweet smelling.

Taste - Floral hops have turned to grapefruit. Malty. Not really sweet, but toasty. A little creamy. Bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Creamy with medium carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Average IPA with some unimpressive characteristics.

Not an IPA fan so...Hard to give it this high of a rating honestly. Pretty bitter...

Hazy golden orange with tons of large floaters. Decent head with little retention or lacing.

Very nice tropical nose. Grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. A little bit of perfume.

Tropical hop flavors, like the nose, with very little malt backbone. Very dry and bitter.

Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. The bitterness is punishing on the palate.

Overall, a very nice beer. It could use a little balance to tone down the bitterness, but it has some very nice tropical aromas and flavors.

I really like this beer. Very similar to Stone IPA. I was very impressed with it. Best I've had out of Tennessee.
