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.

A: Poured a nice glowing golden color with good carbonation and a nice little white cap, and some lacing.

S: Mainly citrus and booze.

T: Starts off with a nice grapefruit, orange zest feel, booze and hop bite round it out.

M: Thin body for a beer weighing 9.2

O: Average for the style, plenty of hops and taste and not enough depth to hang with the big boys I drink routinely

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.

I really love this brew. Poured a bright golden yellow and slams a massive hop punch up front to the palate. The brew is very smooth for a big DIPA and has a great mouth feel. Just the right amount of hop oil and well balanced. If you are a hop head looking for an awesome hoppy local brew you have found it in this one. Also try their Tobacco Road Imperial Amber wow delicious.
