3.6/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color with a rocky head; nice, splashy lacing

Smell: Citrusy and floral, with a significant amount of toffee underneath; as the beer warms the hop elements fade and the malt takes over

Taste: The toffee flavors set the base and the hops add a bitter aspect in the middle; unlike the aroma, there are not any citrus flavors - just bitterness; after the swallow, the beer is more malty than hoppy, however

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not sure exactly what the brewer was shooting for here, but the malts are a bit too big for my palate and the hops lack the flavor profile I prefer

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.
