Had on tap at the local goat in pigeon forge, tn. Not detecting a lot of citrus but does have a nice scent. Bright taste with a little malt backbone. Decent ipa but kind of in the middle not northeast and not west coast.

Pours a murky copper with two fingers of khaki foam on top. Head retention is great leaving a dense layer of foam for a while. Aroma is resin, pine, and herbal in a earthy, hop syrup delivery. Bread and toast malts behind. Flavor profile is resin, pine, herbal, and floral hops with bread malts underneath. It has an old school IPA flavor profile, but isn't in the face or brash. Mouth feel is crisp with a medium thickness. Overall, an old school IPA that delivers the hoppy goods. Flavor profile and well contained make this one great beer.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Very interesting indeed. Piney. Malty. A bit flat for my palette. Still, very good from this Nashville brewer and recommended.

Poured into a snifter. Moderately hazy amber-orange color with a one-finger white head. The smell was malty up front - sweet with some orange and pine. Taste followed - too sweet and malty for my liking. Some nice piney and earthy bitterness, but this was overshadowed by the malt. The beer was canned 8 weeks ago, so maybe I will revisit a fresher offering.

On tap poured into small pint glass

A: fluffly head caramel and a darker Amber Hued beer

S: malty a little hit of resiny hops a little bit of citrus too

T: citrusy but then a lot of malts and some resin

M: mediumish feel

O: this is a great beer but if you go into expecting a bright citrus beer the maltiness will surprise you

Like drinking a tasty pine tree! Nice frothy head, LOTS of hop aroma. Smooth feel and lingers at the back of the throat just enough to keep me wanting more. Great job on this one.

A: Orange-amber in color. Small white head with pretty good lacing.
S: citrus and piny good. Very clean and refreshing.
T: piny hops hit up-front. Some caramel malts spring up before the pint hops take back over. Finish is a sweeter citrus-y hoppy note.
M: great level of carbonation. Mouthfeel is medium.
O: a pretty good IPA that packs plenty of hops into a very drinkable IPA. Wonderful.

Pours golden orange with an off white head. Aroma is citric and pine with some grainy malt foundation. Starts off nice, but kinda falls apart in the very end. Flavor is citric with some breadiness, and quite bitter pineyness, but falls apart midstream where things seemd to get jumbled and indistinct with a soapiness to the flavor. Medium bodied, active mouthfeel. Overall, this beer is a bit of a mess. If they could dial things in they have the making of a nice IPA here. As is though, I wouldn't order it again until I know they fixed its technical flaws. Perhaps the issues were just for the specific batch I tried
