Super fresh! Canned on 3\9\18 poured on 4/13/18.
L: darker than I expected. Deep dark orange amber gold. Very cloudy. Big head, good retention and lacing.
S: initial smell while ice cold was dank and citrus with a hint of booze. But as it warmed it blossomed into a very nice rich and ripe candied citrus orange fruit!
T: very flavorful, ripe citrus fruit and hops. Orange peel and orange fruit, but not straight orange. Good balance. Tasty rich bitterness. A little bitter aftertaste on the palate but not unpleasant.
F: thick with a nice little bite. Not boozy or too bitter. Very drinkable just like the can says.
O: My first offering from Yellowhammer. But if it’s a DIPA from Alabama I’m going to try it! And I’m glad I did. Very solid Imperial. Don’t be afraid to let it warm up because at the right temp it’s very rich and flavorful! Thank you Chelsea Citgo!

Courtesy of richj1970, thanks for another blast of flavor. From 12 oz. can.

Pours a translucent dark gold with a finger of off white head atop. Head kicks back quick to thick ring and nice cap.
Thick lace decorates glass.

Caramel, grapefruit, pine, bitter orange, and some crisper grain notes make a tasty, medium strength aqroma.

West coast style blast of caramel, grapefruit, bitter pith, and pine. Herbal bitter joins the end of sip party to help dry it out.

Highly viscous, med. carb. full bodied, with a decent finish.

Tasty brew, simple and clean, sure to please fans of old school WCIPA. Recommended.

Stopped at the brewery on my way to MS for a friends birthday bash. This beer was hands down the most impressive from Yellowhammer. The beer poured out as a hazy yellow color with some golden hues in there. The head was white and had a nice retention and lacing. The smell of the beer had some really dank hops on the nose which I loved. The taste of the beer had a good amount of resin-like hops that really leave a nice piney tingle on the tongue. The feel was good, medium bodied. Overall I liked this so much I made it a point to grab some Crowlers of it before leaving. Would drink this one again for sure.

Absolute Perfection. If you love IPAs and this is out, get two packs of it. It is something I look forward to every year.

A - A dark dark brown to copper. The inch of head settles into a light thin froth. 3

S - Smells of resiny hops and sweet biscuits. Slight hint of figs/rasins. 3.5

T - Bitterness is the forefront with a slight maltiness and an odd herbal tinge which fades into a liquorice taste that lingers. 3.5

M - Light body with medium carbonation. 4

Always glad when this one appears every year. Filled another half-gallon growler and was rewarded at home after filling a couple of 24-oz glasses with a very healthy fine-foamed head, aroma filled with citrus and hoppy goodness. Brewer claims 6 lbs hops per barrel, glass feels like that much character at least, very clean flavor and no unpleasant after-taste. This one feels very dry on the palate and the high ABV is anything but readily apparent in this smooth and very drinkable Yellowhammer DIPA, a classic "lawn mowing" beer with bite.

This is what I consider a good everyday beer, not too heavy and nothing negative to make you search elsewhere. Consistency is a bit thinner than the Stone products, but this is a good daily brew for hot summer days and nights. There are some rosemary pine accompaniments that enhance the character, but overall a very simple and drinkable ale I could consume on a regular basis.

Poured from 32 oz growler into tulip glass.

A: Deep yellow with slight one finger head. No lacing to speak of.

S: Big citrus, alcohol, and hops. A bit of piney resin.

T: Grapefruit, orange peel, bitter hops. Alcohol is apparent but enjoyable.

M: Medium body and fair carbonation. Was looking for a bit more head on this one, but otherwise very nice.

O: A very solid IIPA. Very hop forward but nicely drinkable. One of my favorite local IPAs.
