Giving Nashville a fresh palate and a bright future, Tennessee Brew Works unleashes a classic IPA with un-classic nuances that keep the taste buds both captivated and comforted.

Cutaway IPA kicks off with a bright and glowing golden-amber color. Its mild haze showcases its unadulterated, dry-hop character. Upon the beer builds a frothy off-white head that shows persistent staying power and sturdy lace that highlights each drink from the glass.

Its bright aromas of hops give a distinctive grapefruit scent- its citrus peel, pleasant grassy and woodish tone allows the beer to sing praises of both American hops and noble British variety even though there seem to be none of those English ones present. Its backbone of malt is also lightly biscuity-sweet with shortbread, caramel and mild honey. Light esters highlight its fruity tone for a culmination that's mildly of marmalade.

Its malty taste is firm, bready and caramel-sweet. Though the beer will finish dry, its lightly toasted, nutty and crusty sweetness keeps the beer semi-balanced even though the middle. As the citrusy, grassy and herbal hops gain intensity, they eventually overshadow the malts and take the hoppy bull by its horns. Its dry-malt finish allows the hops to finish decidedly bitter, yet smooth.

Its medium body is modestly "Amber-like" until the malts trail off and its hops garner dominance. Once this happens, the ale is dry, crisp, clean and highly refreshing. Finishing with mild warmth, a minty and lemony note persists and keeps its uniqueness flaring about.

Cutaway IPA is interesting enough to keep the "Hop-Heads" engaged, yet balanced and smooth enough to talk swill-drinking buddies off the fence. Its a very forgiving ale that would certainly pair well with a vast array of American cuisine as well as a formidable stand-alone ale in succession. (1,843 characters)
