Notes: "What's the fastest way to make an Atlanta native cringe?

""21-3"" works, but there's another way:

Say ""Hotlanta.""

Take your senses on a trip ITP when you sip on this quadruple-dry-hopped IPA. With the unpredictability of Atlanta’s spring weather, this cloudy double IPA pops with sunny tropical notes on the nose. It drinks dank and finishes with a bit of bitterness, much like an Atlanta sports fan. Don't Call It Hotlanta checks in at a bridge-collapsing 8.5% ABV, so enjoy it after your hour-long evening commute."

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a deep golden body, reasonably clear with a thin, near-white head.

Smell: Tropical fruit pulp dressed with citrus juice, earthy herbs, slight underlying catty touch. Golden barley, crunchy day-old bread.

Taste: Lightly bready with a brief sweetness hinting of treacle. Dank, moist herbaceousness, earthy, featuring supporting fruit flavors of papaya and citric grapefruit. Again, a bit catty, a bit musky. Moderate bitterness. Upped acidity nearing the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: It's OK.

Best by 8/26, does that mean it was canned 4/26? 2/26?

Dont put a "best by" date on your cans - that's insulting. I would give this some bonus points due to it being a couple months old, but I'm not really sure when it was canned... Regardless, it's just OK, good for Georgia.

16oz can served in a pint glass. Best by 05/22/19. Gift from @mr-jj.

Pours a mostly clear golden with a smallish head. Smell is piney, grassy.

Taste is piney, grassy, a little honeysuckle. Bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium and a little still. Overall, it's not bad.

Pale golden and hazy with a white foam head that shows nice persistence... "Quadruple dry-hopped" DIPA... Features Galaxy, Citra, and Columbus hops... Presents lots of dank tropical, orchard, and citrus fruits, like grapefruit, mango, and peach - but again, this is a dank representation - kinda tacky and shellacky underneath the fruit juiciness... Medium-bodied, smooth, and soft, with a moderate bitterness and sweetness... Really delivers the goods...

12oz can from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 12.99/ 4 pack. Canned 5//18. Served in a Monday Night snifter. Enjoyed 6/5/18.

Pours a semi hazy, pale golden orange with about a finger and a half of pale head. The bubbles shrink back fairly quickly, leaving a splotchy haze, a modest halo and some scattered dashes and dots of lacing.

Aromas of citrusy hops, melon, tangerine, lemon, berry and a bit of malt sweetness.

The rich hop flavors vacillate between tropical and dank hops. Oranges, a distinct cattiness, passion fruit, socks, melon rind and a little vague sugar.

Medium, oily body with understated carbonation. The lingering finish is tropically dank.

Another mighty fine IPA from Monday Night. Since really nabbing my attention late last year their roll continues. I love to see them continue these near monthly releases from their fairly recently established Hop Hut.
