look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz can poured into pint glass

A - Appears a bright gold color with a white head. Retention and lacing are decent.

S - In a grapefruit bomb category, its aroma has a some nice complexity. Notes of apricot and more floral notes join typical grapefruit nose.

T - Flavor begins with a light malt sweetness. Again unlike typical AIPAs, there is actually a mid palate where subtle fruity sweetness is apparent before it works into the expected hop bitterness.

M - Medium/heavy body. Light on the carbonation.

O - Definitely worth a try. Nice to see a local craft not just cascading the heck out of a beer and calling it an IPA. May not be exactly what people are expecting, but that is a good thing in such a saturated category.

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.
