Poured from 32 oz growler into snifter.

A: Clear golden orange with 2 finger fluffy white head with nice retention and leaving moderate lacing.

S: Orange zest, grapefruit, and fresh pine needles. Subtle hints of baked bread and honey.

T: Blend of piney and citrus hops combined with a healthy malt backbone. Grapefruit with a touch of honey.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Finish showcases some hop bitterness.

O: Solid DIPA. Something I would buy again for sure.

On tap at the brewery.

A: A beautiful clear copper with half finger white head that lingered. Nice lacing. I remembed this one stood out among the flight we had. Great color.

S: Grapefruit, citrus, sweet.

T: A nice blend of grapefruit and caramel. Very regal as the name implies. Well balanced.

M: Medium with medium, creamy carbonation.

O: One of Cahaba's standouts. Bow down to Fraxinus Maximus.
