I tried this at the brewery. This beer pored a clear copper with white head that didn't leave much lace. The scent had hints of pine and some lemon peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus base. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer worth trying.

Not bad at all...

12 oz can dated 5/15/18 purchased from Huntsville, AL.

Poured into tall nonic pint.

Color is hazy gold with a fluffy off-white head of 3 fingers. Broken lace begins to form as the head recedes.

Aroma is of peaches and caramelized sugar; slight spiced banana and sweet malts.

Flavor is very piney to start, supplemented with an equal dose of sweet orange creamsickle and caramel malts. Faint vegetal characters hang around towards the finish.

Feel is very carbonated and moderately creamy. Resins finish out the profile.

Overall I can sense this one is ready to turn in about 2-3 weeks, but I can still taste freshness so this was a good trial. I am not a fan of it per se, but I wanted to try at least one Yellowhammer beer before I left the state. Beer ticked.

Deep rich golden color with white cap and good lacing.

Rich malt aroma with a good dose of piney hops.

Flavor on entry is almost equal parts malty richness and hop brightness. Fairly simple flavors but served up in ample portions that lead to a fuller flavor profile. This isn't one of those IPAs where hops take over and malt just totes the luggage, rather seems to be a well thought out and crafted brew that keeps things in perspective while accenting the hop showcase. Hop flavors do build toward the finish and linger in the aftertaste but they are clean and bright without any heavy handedness.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Not the pack leader perhaps but certainly one of the main dogs.

A: Pours a light amber with a thick white head.
S: Soft resiney pine and some lemon rind
T: Lemony rind is more forward in the taste. Followed up with some dank redone pine. Some sweet fruits on finish
MF: very clean. No alcohol burn.
O: This is a very good IPA. Well constructed and easily drinkable. If it were local I would keep this one in the rotation.
