3 month can poured to YETI.
L: Copper color, good creamy head.
S: Earthy, piney, 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.

On tap at the brewery.

Clear, pale copper. Heavy, heavy lacing.
It smells delightfully fruity; passionfruit.
But wow. It tastes really aggressively herbal-bitter. That's an IPA. Sweetish aftertaste is unexpected, but not wholly unwelcome.
Thick and full-bodied. Malty and substantial.
A really, really nice IPA. I'm shocked by the quality of the style in Birmingham, AL. Massive hops, er, I mean props.

32 ounce growler poured into Westbrook Brewing tulip glass

A - clear deep amber pour with a one finger foamy head world class retention and world class lacing. Constant stream of bubbles rising from bottom of glass

S - if this beer has a weakness, it is the nose. Just not much there. Hints of pine and floral, not much else.

T - very hop forward. Piney hop bitterness. Malt is sort of roasted. Very pleasing taste.

M - medium thickness with a small aftertaste

O - excellent offering. Looking forward to trying more beer from this Birmingham, Alabama based 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.
