A full-bodied, traditional IPA, well balanced with a healthy dose of English hops. Reminiscent of “historical” Knoxville IPA’s.

I had this on tap at the brewpub, in a pint glass. It was a bit of a disappointment to me, sort of a bitter English IPA with little in the way of hoppy character. Otherwise not much to note about it. Clear, golden color, decent head, etc etc. The body was maybe a little fuller than usual for an IPA, that was the highpoint for me. But the lingering bitterness left me wanting something else. Not bad per se, just kind of middling.

Draft. Good for a brewpub. Big fish, small pond brew. Nothing unique, but hoppy enough to remember. And while this is a beer review forum, I feel compelled to say that the atmosphere is worth the stop alone. We came in from Pigeon Forge while on vacation and walked into Live Jazz Sunday Brunch. Food was stellar!

*This place has phenomenal 1 and 2L growlers with Grolsch-style tops! A must-have if you don't already!

What you'd expect in an IPA. Golden pale color with moderate head.

Smell of floral hoppiness.

Taste is a good hop kick but not overpowering. Strong, yet smooth wallop of hops with no strong aftertaste.

The feel was smooth and on the crisp side.

Very drinkable. I'll have another.

First off this is not a double IPA but rather is just a regular single IPA. It poured a nice pale amber with a good frothy white head and some side glass lace. The aroma was fresh, nice floral hops with a touch of sweetness. The flavor was a touch muted, somewhat thin, but still quite decent. The finish was very nice and I actually seemed to like this more as time went on. Overall not a bad IPA, but I have had better, needs a little more depth to make it special.
