I was fortunate enough to fill a growler from Batch #2 at my local Whole Foods (cleaned out the keg). Poured into 16 Oz. Pint glass. Very little head and pours deep orange almost. Smell of citrus, almost fruity. Tastes very hoppy with citrus. Dry. Juicy and refreshing. Excellent. I think Orpheus might be the Russian River of the southeast. Feeling extremely satisfied that I that I tried this before it all runs out. Please give us cans, Orpheus!

Very dangerous and easy drinking dipa. A very solid dipa from a new GA brewery, and my #1 now from Georgia.

11 ounce pour - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Delivered to my corner of the bar a hazed, dingy-looking golden body with a slim, white head. Nil lacing.

Smell: Presents no more than a modest aroma, it's certainly not the pinnacle of my beer-drinking experience, but it does give some touches of its pilsner and wheat malt base and floral hops, with a thin vein of sweatiness.

Taste: Slender maltiness, a little crackery, a minimal grain quality, showing barely any sweetness that transitions into the floral, citric hops, though far, far less showing than one would anticipate. Medium-plus bitterness. There's some slight sweaty byproducts like maybe a hint of butyric acid or isovaleric acid thinned with still, chilled mineral water. Closes out quite dry and still a bit floral on the far-from-crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It wasn't a dreadful beer, but it's not exactly perfect in every way and could use some tweaks to dial this one in. Thanks for your time, friends.

This is an outstanding IIPA to get fresh. To me it has a similar mouth-feel to big names like Enjoy By and Sucks, yet the hop varieties in the recipe make it quite unique. I will sample it every Spring. And let's be real, the art work is fantastic too.

32oz counter pressure filled growler from Barrel and Barley (Woodstock, GA). 9.99. From their recent first run. Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours a hazy pale orange gold with a fluffy two finger white cap. The head fades to a thin halo that laces quite well.

Smells of mandarins, tropical fruits and floral hops with some bready, sweet malt notes mixed in.

Oranges, berries, floral, slight caramel, sweet crackery malt and very little apparent alcohol. There is some definite bitterness but the hops seem to be more fruity and flavorful than harsh. Drinks very smooth and dry, belying it's double-digit abv.

Medium, vaguely sticky body with moderate carbonation. Finishes clean with more citrus and fruity hops.

Orpheus has made good use of their new equipment and I'm enjoying the spoils of the first run. Looking forward to enjoying cans of this later in the summer.

Had this at the brewery. Awesome imperial IPA that has a great floral and citrus hop aroma and light taste and finish. Don't drink more than a few.
