Notes: Earthy and rich, dry-hopped with Centennial and Columbus. Aroma of pine, plenty of caramel malt gives an amber color and full malt palate.

Poured on draft at Hops and Crafts in Nashville, TN

Pours a ruby/Amber color with a white, frothy head that hangs around for awhile. Beautiful lacing around the glass as I sip.

Smells of dank hops and bready malts. Not overly hop oriented in the smell department, but the flavor makes up for it.

Tastes similar to Victory Hop Devil but way more malt based. Very earthy and malt driven but this is because of the high hop content to balance out the flavor of the beer overall.

Mouthfeel is general for the style. Nice prickly flavor with a sweet sensation up front and a bitter finish.

Overall a decent IPA and a great start for this brewery in Nashville that is trying to make its mark! I'm curious to see how the rest of their brews are.
