COD 1/2/19. Pours a dark amber with a high level of haze. Normal head volume, good lacing and retention.

Outstanding nose that is fruit oriented. Notes of pineapple, melon and light orange zest with a subtle bit of spicy spruce underneath. The base is slightly bready with a nice soft caramel note.

Medium body that has a smooth texture with a bit of heft to it. It leaves you with a nice oily slick sensation. Carbonation / body balance is outstanding and is adequate for flavor separation but feels slightly under carbonated. The finish is slightly prickly.

The flavor profile is outstanding and lives up to the nose. Flavors present as indicated by the aroma. Bitterness is mild and is pine, spruce and zest. Zest dominates in the lingering finish. The base is barely sweet, bready in nature and has a hint of caramel. Sweetness intensity is just enough to contrast the bitterness and support the hop fruit notes.

not bad, they might want to try sum thing other than citrus to stand out from the west coast.

Served on draft at Rosie Ogradys in Beaufort SC. Arrives a clear orange amber color and topped with a seizeable white, frothy, cloudy head. Aroma is quite floral on the hops. The flavor was over the top floral hops. Kind of like a juicy New England style but without the the body. It’s almost TOO juicy, meaning the dry hops are all there is to this. Like drinking hip juice. Lacks bitterness.

Has the look. Has the aroma. But some how it just doesn't follow through. A little on the boozy tasting side which is fine, but the bitterness of the hops here just don't get the job done. Just not a completely balanced beer.

This started off really well, but then something left me a bit flat. The back end of this wasn't really doing it for me. It had the smell and aromas of an outstanding beer, but then, not so much. I'd like to try again as my first beer of the night instead of my third.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Crystal Beer Palace. The appearance is a clear golden color with a small head. The aroma is mild hops. The taste is similar to the nose.

As it warmed. mallt overpowered the hops. Started pretty clear, yet as it warmed haze clouded the beer. I get no melon, i repeat, i got no melon. All other flavors described on can are correct. Hops are not balanced and I am left with a bitterness that is semi not plesent. Pretty dry ipa, yet carmel flavor is too strong. Body was light medium aproaching medium. Decent enough to drink once, i would not buy again or ship to a friend.

A: Light orange to golden in color, large fluffy off white head, great lacing

S: Hoppy pine smell, a nice caramel malt smell for balance

T: Pine hops balanced with the caramel malt sweetness, residual resin from the piney hops leave a lingering bitterness

M: Medium, fluffy head lingers on top to give a pillowy feel as it is sipped

O: This is my first offering from this new Georgia brewery and I was not expecting much from the low to average reviews but I find this beer to be quite enjoyable. There is a nice hoppy bite with a substantial malt presence that I really enjoy.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pine, malts. Taste is on the piney side, some malts, light bitterness at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but not as flavorful as most IPA's.

Pours a clear Amber with 1 1/2 finger head.. Smells of hops, piney. Tastes balanced small hoppy bite throughout drinking. Very drinkable with good carbonation. Decent lacing. Would definitely buy again.

White head. Golden orange color.

Flavors of melons, citrus fruit, and floral hops. Very clean with a nice light bitterness. Fruity and flavorful. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation.

Solid IPA. Definitely worth a try.

Okay is about as good as I can say. Smells better than it tastes. Carbonation is very heavy, almost like a La Croix. Smells a bit fruity, first taste is pretty good, but quickly bitters in an unbalanced with a medium malt way. Not the the worst IPA I've had, but nowhere near the best.
