Pours a light amber with lots of floaties. I don't have a problem with yeast particles.

Nice citrus hop aroma.

Bitter with metallic hop flavors that mix with some light caramel flavors and a hint of earthiness.

The mouthfeel is fine, not watery.

Overall this is a fine IPA.

This beer pours up a deep hazy gold with a massive head, unbelievable retention, and some of the modt elaborate lacing I have ever seen. Smell is pine, resin, and biscuit. Mouthfeel is pretty mild. Taste is some sweet malt followed by citrus and hops. Overall not bad, but not the greatest either.

Poured a half inch head and was an orange brown in appearance. The nose was hoppy with a slight malt. The tongue is hoppy citrussy with a slight malt backbone. The mouthfeel is mild. Overall it's a decent IPA, certainly not a favorite but could have again.

Thanks to cpinto6 for this interesting new beer.

Pours a nice creamy looking 1 finger head that fades semi slowly with decent lacing, over super hazy bright reddish orange colored beer with some yeast chunkies on the bottom.

Nose needs to warm up a little, but brings some big malts, sweet caramel malty aromas, yeasty as well, candy style malts with big earthy hops, some light citrus with the typical candied orange peel, a bit juicy with light tangerine and fruits.

Taste brings the malts up front again, chewy malts with chewy hops, caramel malts, reddish sweet malts, toffee, a little creamy feeling, etc. A little yeasty flavored as well. The hops kick in, quite a lot of hops actually, quite bitter, big earthy slight spicy hops, chewy hops, grassy, a bit of pine, and just a touch of citrus. As it warms in my mouth a light doughy malt sneaks through the bitter hop kick with the yeast. Finish brings lots of bitterness, it gets a little astringent and even more so as it dries fairly quickly, the one time a bit of sweetness would have helped balance on the finish. Lingering earthy spicy hops, a bit chewy and grassy, but quite bitter.

Mouth is med bodied, a bit creamy, quite a bit of carb too.

Overall good but not great, the hops are a lot more for bitterness than flavor and aroma, but there is a bit of it in there. A nice big malt profile to help balance at first until that disappears on the finish leaving the bitter astringent hops.

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.

3.03/5  rDev -17%

A: A brownish orange-amber. Light tan head on top, and the body is very cloudy.

S: Hoppy with perhaps a bit of honey and orange blossom. Floral notes and caramel, there is a good bit of sweetness in there. The finish to the aroma has something weird in it, maybe a touch cloying, or metallic.... I can't quite seem to pick it up.

T: Bitterness is prevelant, with some caramel notes in the back. The hops come out with citrus and floral notes. There is a hint of a flour note. Not sure what I am picking up in this beer, but it something I am not a fan of.. perhaps the hop combination in conjunction with the malty sweetness. Perhaps a little too floral?

M: Medium to Medium thick. Carbonation is moderate to low, there is almost a sticky hop oil left over in your mouth..

O: Overall it's decent, but there is something in the flavor I am not in love with. Not amazing, but certainly drinkable, and decent.

3.53/5  rDev -3.3%

Pours golden with off white head that dissipates pretty quickly.

Smell is floral hops with mild hints of citrus. Not a hop bomb at all.

Taste is sweet malts up front with mild citrus and bitterness in the finish. Seems more plain pale ale than IPA, but good.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and very drinkable. Medium to heavy carbonation.

Overall this was good. I like a little more hop punch, but I would drink this again.
