3.51/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A 12oz bottle picked up at Total Wine. Great to see another local atlanta brewery bottled and in retail stores

A - Golden with a slight amber hue, tiny bit of head and no real lacing left on the glass as the beer drains

S - Mild hoppy aroma, more on the citrus side. Big malt otter backbone

T - Big malt character. Slightly hoppy, and finishes like a pilsner, not bitter at all, which is slightly odd for an IPA?

M - Light bodied and very well carbonated. Sizzles on the tongue.

O - Definitely comes across as a slightly hoppy pale ale. Malt character is more upfront than usual IPA's. Pretty easy to drink and enjoyable, but I dig my IPA's with some more bitterness, especially at the end

This is a nice-looking IPA. Thick white head, lots of sticky lace. Unfortunately, there isn't much else going on. Faint sweet malt aroma, minimal hops. The taste followed the nose. A little caramel, not much hops.

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

Review reflects [1] Initial release version contract brewed by Thomas Creek (SC) and [2] modified with tasting in April 2013 at the brewery.

A - slightly hazy (only initial version) out of the tap; light amber. Off-white head is thin but has decent duration. Visible carbonation. Leaves a rather full coat of foam on the glass.

Aroma: Hoppy aroma with caramel malt strongly present but more in the background. Hints of citrus

M: Lively but excellent carbonation. Crisp with medium body.

T - very good flavor but neither strong nor especially hoppy for style. This was particularly obvious, perhaps, because the preceding beer was the very flavorful and hoppy Sweetwater IPA.

O - very drinkable but not bold IPA. Just enough hoppiness to qualify as an IPA, this mellow IPA is the best of their 3 regular, bottled brews.

Revisited with a pint at P'cheen.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark, hazy orange with no head. 3.5

S - Orange hops, slight orange peel, caramel malt

T - Orange, citrusy hops balanced with a good dose of caramel malt. Light alcohol near the end that warms the mouth. Slight floral in the finish

M - Medium body with average carbonation that makes it easy to drink. A crispness near the finish and a slight hop resin lingers on.

O - A really nice and drinkable IPA with good citrus flavors balanced with a slight bitterness
