An old favorite from the ATL...

A. Copper gold, one finger of off-white head with good retention and lacing.

S. Pine, grapefruit, tangerine zest, traces of pineapple, rose petals.

T. Follows the nose with pine needles, grass, pineapple, some biscuit malt, and a slight sweet kick.

M. Packs a nice bitter punch but doesn't overstay it's welcome. A clean, balanced, and crisp AIPA.

O. An excellent American IPA that drinks like an excellent blend of both East and West coast versions. Certainly a dank, hoppy treat but balanced with sweet, grainy malt bill. Very enjoyable.
