Been in Georgia for 10 years, best friend brought a bottle down from Chicago to Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte NC. Just had it and it is Awesome. Definitely a top rated beer. Need more southern brews to get to this quality.

Love the bombers! Refreshingly potent, great "back porch around the grill" beer. Well-balanced, nice mouthfeel.

Picked-up a single for $13.95 @ Bradford's in Plymouth! My 3rd brew from these guys, all good. Who new they made such nice brew in IA, thought just corn & mediocre football teams? This beer is outstanding, one of the best I have ever had, slight ping for the ridonculous $.

Pours a bright and sunny yellow with soft orange hues and beautifully hazed.

Bright citrus and tropical fruit notes of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and orange.

Orange and citrus character comes through much stronger in flavor than aroma, but the tropical fruit is definitely not overpowered and provides a nice complexity.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, soft, juicy, and so smooth.

Overall, while PseudoSue alone is a terrific brew, this version takes it to a completely different level. Juicy, a pungent hopping, and goes down easier than most that clock in at 8%, this is just an exception beer.
