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.

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
