4.03/5  rDev +8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance 3.75: Poured out a frothy , deep golden. Head swelled up to a respectable 1/2" and refused to completely go away. Lots of little CO2 bubbles, but this is a somewhat opaque ale and it looks great.

Smell 3.75: Bouquet is hop-forward, like an IPA should be. I smell the familiar alkaline hit of Columbus, Chinook...maybe a couple of other left-coast "C" hops. Very nice and inviting.

Taste 4.25: Front is somewhat dry, with a pleasant initial alkaline punch. Middle is also a little dry, but features a huge hit of hop yumminess: citrus rind, grapefruit, pine, chlorophyl. Finish is smooth and malty, with a pleasant alkaline underpinning and more discernible citrusy tastes from the hops. Aftertaste is of medium length and all in the back of the mouth, featuring more hop accents. Very nice.

Mouthfeel 4.0: Really on the mark for this type of beer. Silky smooth and just the right amount of bubbles.

Overall 4.0: Excellent IPA. Great malt and hop balance and the alpha hops chosen for this brew are a wonderful blend. Perfect for sessioning, this baby would also stand up well to whatever food you pair it with, its dryness makes it a great companion. ABV is a little big for this type of ale, so watch out. Recommended.

A well-balanced ipa, not overly hoppy but also not super malty. Although a good representation of the style, it doesn't really stand out and I certainly wouldn't seek it out again. Worth trying if it's the only craft option on tap, but i prefer sweetwater's more readily available ipa anyway.

Underrated brew...not in my time zone so it is hard to call me a local. All the adjectives that go along with a great IPA are right here in this brew...really nice liquid gold elixir...good drinks.

Clear pale yellow in color with almost zero head and the thinnest of collars. Aroma is lacking. Barely any malt at all, zero hop character. Taste is kind of like some kind of industrial cleaner. Thin in body and medium carbonation. I wish this brewery was better considering it's only about 10 minutes away from my parents' new house in Marietta.

On tap at the brewery.

Weedy, grassy, herbal, grapefruit peel aroma: hop-dominant as expected.

Flavor: Hops present a more balanced taste with a touch more fruit. Mild bitterness turns a bit higher in the aftertaste.

Hazy amber body with a durable off-white head.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky amber color with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is full of citrus, grassy and hops. The taste is a really good blend of citrus and hops.
