Poured into a snifter at my home

Pours a hazy gold color, with a decent head that hangs on for dear life.

Lightly floral hops in the nose, with a touch of sugary sweetness sneaking in at the end. Not a lot of aroma, but what is there is appetizing.

Flavor is mild. It really isn't a bitter beer at all, not nearly as much as one would expect from an IPA. It's got some hop flavor, but not a great deal of that, either. It's crisp and bright, but there's not a lot here that screams "IPA!". Thin malt backbone provides just a bit of sweetness, otherwise the malt presence isn't noticeable. Taste flames out with a bit of hoppiness, but that quickly disappears. This is a really good pale ale, but it lacks a bit of kick for an IPA. It comes up just short in every measurable way.

Mouthfeel is on the thin side as well. Not too watery, but still thinner than it should be. I'd like a bit more oomph in the texture. That might help make the beer feel bigger.

Overall, this is very pleasant to drink. It just doesn't quite climb the ladder to get from pale ale to IPA heights. I wouldn't hesitate to grab another one if I wanted a good pale to get me through a barbecue, but if I were looking for a hoppy IPA to grab me by the tastebuds and smack my tonsils around a bit, I'd have to leave this one the shelf. A bit more bittering and this one could be there, however. Definitely worth trying.

Tennessee alcohol laws suck! Nice to see a local brewery doing a year round IPA. Ghost river where you at? need to step upi your game! Wiseacre coming into the market place strong in memphis. great sessionable IPA that is local to the memphis area. this is a rare thing.
