a well made if a tad generic india pale ale from the great state of georgia. richer bronze color to this, mostly clear, with an inch of pure white head that slowly settles down. it smells like cascade hops, higher alpha but overly common, the classic mix of hop bitterness and juicy punch. malt base is bigger than average and lends some biscuity aromatics, although its flavor is far more subdued. a fuller bodied gulp shows nice carbonation and a long hoppy finish that moves from lightly citric to quite bitter. well done, but the varietals used could be a little more unique i think. this is basic american ipa, well crafted, but not particularly intriguing. a good sixer to drink down thoughtlessly coming from one of the better known georgia beer makers. curious to try their other stuff though, this was good, but couldnt hold my attention past one.
