12 oz bottle

Typical Amber, near clear pour. Looser off white cap

Ripe fruit and hopes on the nose

Pleasing and fruity IPA, soft and smooth in the mouth. Fruit jam, soft hops in the finish and sweet malts providing the balance.

Worth a try

I had a couple of the Monday Night Eye Patch at Taco Mac before the Falcons-Chargers game. The pour had a decent head and a great aroma with a good balanced taste on the tongue that felt good going down. My strongest memory of this experience was the waiter bringing me a Miller Lite, for some reason, after I had ordered a second Eye Patch. The difference in appearance was noticable, but doubting myself, I sipped anyway and believe I did a spit take. My friend thought I overreacted with the waiter, and I probably did.

Pint on draft at TGI Friday's in the Atlanta airport. BC won some bowl games while I was here.

Appearance: Reasonably clear straw/gold. Two-finger soapy head.

Aroma: Some pine, hops, fruit. Not overpowering.

Taste: Follows nose. Some apricot and grapefruit. Pretty typical midrange IPA. Slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Typical for style. Doesn't crush the palate. Good companion for a burger.

Overall: Decent IPA. Doesn't standout from the crowd, and overpriced at $7 a pint, but then again I am in an airport.

Misc.: N/A

Not a great selection on the menu (in fact, even their bison burger was not that good), so I went with the local option. Had heard of Monday Night Brewing looking at the Atlanta beer scene before my trip, but did not go looking for it. Kind of excited to try it.

Poured a light amber clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of white frothy head when I got it. Some bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Excellent lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled pine, caramel, some herbal, Cascade and Citra. Seemed to me somewhat dry. (Smell - 3.50)

Taste followed the nose, reminding me of something that came out about five years ago. Pine, herbal, wet Cascade, Citra and very soapy. (Taste - 3.50)

Light body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50)

I probably overrated this overall. Just an OK IPA. (Overall - 3.50)

Had a pint on draft at Terra Terrior in Atlanta. Pretty, clear copper color with a fluffy off-white head that held its shape well and provided a little bit of lacing down the glass. Picked up pine and biscuit on the nose initially, with citrus, caramel, and a light yeast filling out the balanced aroma. Very balanced flavor profile, as well, with plenty of sharp citrus and bitter pine but quite a hearty backbone of caramel, cracker, and cereal grains that created a very nicely rounded overall sip. Body was medium in terms of both body and carbonation, a little less noteworthy than the rest of the experience. Wanted something local and on tap and didn't have overly high expectations, but this was a very solid beer. Not sure it necessarily stood out in an extremely crowed APA/IPA world, but I enjoyed it and would gladly drink it again if I saw it on a menu.

Pours a cloudy maize color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of floral hops, citrus hops, slight yeast, sweet malt, caramel malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of floral hops, citrus hops, earthy malt, slight yeast, sweet malt, caramel malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, weak appearance, good aroma, blend, and body.

Appearance - copper in color. Smell - piney smell, some malt in it too. Taste - piney with a very light tropical taste. Not bad. Overall - good, not great. But nothing I'd be ashamed of drinking.
