Light copper color with white cap.

Aroma of malt and citrusy hops. Not a whole lot of either but enough to notice.

Flavor is malt forward, and rather nice malt, with hops making their appearance mid palate then growing in intensity to the finish with a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Slightly more than average lingering bitterness.

Medium texture with a bit more carbonation than needed.

The malt bill is good with a solid roundness and good depth of flavor that is marred by the offsetting hops. Not that they were the wrong hops just that they didn't meld well. Like somebody poured the wrong sauce on the entree. Or the wrong finish on the furniture, something like that.

Picked it up while at the grocery store while staying in Tuscaloosa. Kind of disappointed in it. Store only had two local brews and this was the most expensive--not necessarily a sign of quality, but in a pinch and with a solid review on here I figured I'd give it a go. Not for me. Kind of bland, not a lot of flavor. Expected it to be more bitter than it was. Not a great profile.

Not so much for me, to IPAish - part of a flight at the brewery with Bro and Bob on the way to Cheaha State Park in Alabama. Carrie the production manager opened early for us to taste and tour.
