Had this one during my buddy’s bachelor party! Tick all day, every day! Served from tap into a Samuel Adams sampler shaker. Poured golden yellow with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, and spicy hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit hop, citrus, citrus hop, earth, and floral hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I really liked this one as it brought a level of complexity that I was not expecting based on the aroma. The citrus was quite a nice surprise upon taking my first sip. The floral was a nice touch as well. All of this made it quite drinkable and enjoyable. I could have easily drank a full pint of this one, but I had plenty of ticking to do this evening.

Comes out of the tap an opaque, cloudy honey golden with a fairly thick pale honey head. In fact, it looks a lot like honey, real honey fresh from the hive. Hoppy aroma has a sweet honey-like overtone and a nice evergreen note. Flavor - woo wee, seriously hoppy, very evergreen, with a sweet undertone and just a little bitterness. Full-bodied texture is quite rough and fizzy, leaving behind a hoppy, tingly, slightly honey-sweet finish. Recommended!

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice off-white head with good retention and lacing.
S- The aroma is faint malt and citrusy hops. The aroma is surprisingly faint for an IPA.
T- The taste is dominated by the citrusy hops, there is not much of a malt presence.
M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a high amount of carbonation.
O- Overall, I was a little disappointed with this IPA. It is lacking a bit compared to some of the better IPAs on the shelves.

Thanks to Yulles for bringing me this little guy for picking him up a beer during a local release. Not necessary but appreciated! 12 oz. bottle into glass.
Pour is IPA gold with a fair amount of particle mass distributed throughout the IPA column. Nose is mostly floral hops with a distant background of citrus. A touch malty.
Hoplanta is that cruelest of creatures: the balanced IPA. A big malt bill siezes the tongue immediately, bringing bread & sweetness. Mid-sentence there are hops, light, floral, pretty. Gentle. They do stick around though, all the way through & deep into the aftertaste. As befits a beer presumedly made for a blazing Hotlanta summer, this is easy to sip.
A beer that seems to have been brewed to be middle-road & inoffensive, it succeeds on both counts. Decent enough.

Slightly cloudy amber in color. Forms a modest sticky white head. Good retention for what does form. Copious lacing. Aroma is a blend of caramel malts, bitter citrus and pine hops. Taste is more of the same. Rather bitter. Citrus zest, citrus pith. Maybe a little pine. Caramel malt. Medium body. Aggressive bitterness, bordering on soapy. A rather hoppy and bitter east coast style IPA.

served from the tap in an imperial pint glass at Vortex Bar and Grill in Atlanta.
appears extremely hazy, pale golden rusty color with a nice large rocky bone-white head. Big aroma. bready malt, big piney and citrusy hop flavors in the taste. thicker body for an IPA. Drinks nice.

Pours a golden orange color with a small, but nicely creamy head. Quite a bit of yeasty sediment in the bottom of the bottle, which I managed to avoid pouring in, for the most part. Deep juicy citrus, apricot, and floral hops over some caramel malt. There's a slight vegetal/herbal note that throws things out of whack a little. Solid hoppy flavor with a nice citrus oil quality to it. Bitter pine, grapefruit, and a pale malt sweetness. Some of the herbalness comes through here, but in a less funky way. Lingering orange pulp. Medium bodied - solid carbonation and bitterness. Not bad at all.

Poured into a Green Flash cask-style glass. No freshness date.
A- Pours a very murky dark copper color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Sticky threads of lacing.
S- More of an herbal hop aroma with a scent of sweet malt in the tail. Slight alcohol fume.
T- Bitterness that doesn't have much of a flavor accompanying it; just bite and a vegetable flavor. Tastes slightly astringent and now the booze shows its full presence. IBUs are certainly in the 70+ range. The malts kind of get lost in the heavy hoppage and aren't as prevalent as in the aroma.
M- Bitey with a dryness that lingers. Also has a considerable alcohol sting. Medium carbonation and a solid body.
O- I'm glad I only bought a single bottle as this is a bit of a disappointing IPA. Not very much fun to drink.
