A thing where you remake Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And, in the train, instead of having Clementine make Huckleberry Hound references, she just mentions Orpheus Brewing. ("Transmigration of Souls? Are you nuts?!") Cause this ish might be charmingly hopped but it nonetheless reads like it is primarily composed of straight Cutie juice -- citrus abounds in that country-style turbidity. Madd essential oils. You're definitely not gonna get scurvy. Not saying it isn't tasty, just genuinely surprised there isn't a 'Heavy Pulp' variant.

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.

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.

Counter Pressure filled growler - poured into a DFH IPA glass. From the initial run.

A - Straw to yellow, lively carbonation, one finger white lasting cap and excellent lacing.

S - Dominant fruity hops, orange peel, grapefruit juice, and lemon with floral notes peeking through.

T/M- Again, very hop forward with assorted fruit peel, light floral notes. Very little perceived bitterness and booze, I wouldn't guess this was 10%. I'm pretty impressed at how hop forward this was. Other 10% DIPAs tend to just be sticky sweet grassy toothpaste beers to me. According to the brew master's musings, this was even a big too sticky for his likings, if I manage to get a hold of another batch I will definitely be updating, and if he manages to dry this out even more, I'd be very, very, impressed.

UPDATE: Batch 2, drier, and damn close to perfection in my eyes. This is what hoppy beer should taste like.

O - It's incredibly encouraging to see this new brewery going big, and doing it well. The transition into the brew system has yielded great results so far, I can't wait to see what comes out of here once they're totally dialed in.
