Pours a hazy murky amber color with a cream colored head that falls fairly fast.

Aroma is over ripe fruit, some mango touches of pine needles decent caramel malty base or might be some of the fruit notes masquerading.

Taste is like the nose citrus notes deep and mingled in with caramel malts. Finish is light pine and dank musty hops or what i refer to as tobacco notes has a light lingering bitter resin finish. Not a bad little IPA defiantly better then there amber which is about average at best. But not something worth searching out either. Some reason liking the maltier not as bright hoppy IPA's some now.

Mouthfeel is nice a solid medium with pretty mellow carbonation.

Overall is not bad, but not what I would go to if I was in Atlanta either. But if you want a kick your teeth in hop bomb this will not be your cup of tea so to speak.

Poured in to a shaker pint. Cloudy amber appearance. Topped by a small white head with good lacing. The nose had a malty sweetness. Taste was bitter and dry, bland and boring.
Where did the hops go, Hop Lanta? All I got was malts. Mouthfeel was a little fizzy with a tart aftertaste. Once was a enough for me.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, copper-toffee coloring with a thin, low profile, white head. Nose of rich caramel and toffee in the backbone, with a floral hops note, light citrus highlights, and a subtle bitterness throughout. Flavors are richly sweet and tangy forward, with a tart citrus and pepper spiced highlight. Balanced with a solid malt profile, leading to a tangy, slightly resinous aftertaste. The beer is mid-bodied, almost light, and slightly effervesced, with a jumbled, tangy, slightly dry finish. Not bad.
