Oka Uba has a medium, white head and a translucent gold-orange appearance, with moderate lacing. The aroma is of white bread crust, resins, and spiced bread. The flavor is similar, with building bitterness. Oka Uba has a medium body and a mostly-dry finish.

A - Pours out orange and clear. White head is substantial and persistent, leaving a thick cap, with lots of lacing.

S - Pine and lemon citrus, with a honey sweetness below.

T - Bright candied lemon, pine and mint herbal notes, and a moderately bitter bite of pith and heavily steeped tea.

M - Brisk carbonation, middle of the road weight, dry but clean finish.

O - Decent. A nice IPA that offers old school Eastern IPA notes, and is a fun clean drinkable beer.

Totally drinkable IPA having now on draft in Montgomery AL. Straw in color with decent lacing. Nice pungent hoppy nose. Lots of hop balanced with dry fruit. This is a uniquely dry IPA in the face of a whole that’s gone mad for juicy.

A signature IPA for this brewery, this has a very nice bite to it. Not much atoma to speak of, a little citrus? But the golden color is gorgeous. Overall a very solid IPA.

One of the very few IPA beers that get the hops just right. Too many others overwhelm your pallet. Cahaba Brewing found the perfect balance.

light head with an aroma of lemon and pine, taste is very hop forward and somewhat unbalanced. very thin mouthfeel with minimal aftertaste alcohol is hidden for a 7.5 abv, a middle of the deck ipa at best would not likely by again

On draft at Buffalo Wild Wings, Tuscaloosa.

Pours cold with a small white head of foam and heavy lace. Amber brown color.

Aroma of malt and hops, subtle at the temperature it was poured, but not bad. Not much else, not getting any citrus or tropical fruit, just a clean hop/malt profile.

Hoppy, piney, resinous, and malty, with a hint of citrus rind in the finish. A well-rounded, balanced profile. Only complaint is that I would have hoped for some more depth to it.

Crisp, clean, a little bitterness lingers. Medium, soft carbonation.

I'm trying this at Donkey Mexican joint. It poured a clear coppet with white head that is leaving a nice ring lace. The scent had hints of tropical fruit. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

3 month can poured to YETI.
L: Copper color, good creamy head.
S: Earthy, piney, lightly floral, lightly fruity. Picked up a little tropical vibe but it wasn't consistent.
T: Uniquely flavorful, great mix of hoppy bitterness, rich malt, ripened earthy fruit, with a touch of pine.
O: Very good IPA.

Best of the bunch for these guys beers. Low bitterness and pretty smooth for an Ipa frankly but decent hop bite. The oddest think though was that this beer straight up smelled like the dank. I put my nose in and took and sip and started looking around. Smelled again and yep.... it's the beer. Weirdest damn thing.

L-Darker beer with a solid single finger head. The head hugs the side of the glass.
S-Piney hops, mellow citrusy hops, sweet and grassy rooted scent alcohol booze follows.
T-Bitter and mellow. Malty, pleasant and sweet.
F-Crisp and fresh. Goes well with the flavor.
O-Very tasty and refreshing beer. Better than a lot, not the best though. Nothing bad at all. Solid brew from a solid brewery.

Drinking locally at WOB in Birmingham in October 2016 while on business trip.

One of the most interesting IPAs I've ever had.... Such a balance of hops and malt. Has a real earthy, grainy taste. Not bitter. Packs a very surprising 7.5% ABV given it seems light and almost lager like.

Will drink again.
