Presentation: 12 oz. can with no dates. Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: The foamy, two finger head stays around for a while and settles into a thick foam layer that stays around until the end leaving a small amount of patchy lacing behind. It's a hazy, dull, yellow-orange color.

Smell: It has a strong but very pleasant citrus fruit smell with notes of orange and grapefruit peels and fresh orange pulp.

Taste: The taste kind of mirrors the nose with most of the flavors being of citrus fruit. There's more fresh fruit here, however. The main taste is of fresh oranges along with grapefruit. There's some hop bitterness and and a pine resin aftertaste towards the end.

Mouthfeel: It's refreshing, dry and medium bodied with a sharp, jarring, high carbonation bite. It feels over carbonated.

Overall: A juicy IPA rich in citrus fruit aromas and flavors that would be better off with a little bit more creaminess and softer carbonation.

L- Pours a surprisingly light colored beer that's golden with a slight carbonation visible. Three fingered head is present.
S- Citrus, pine, and sweet sweet grass. Unfortunately some cheesiness/staleness present, but this beer is on the older side so I won't take off much for that.
T- Mainly citrusy hop is present followed by some pine. Sweet and light. Drinks like a NEIPA. It's 7.5% and I can't taste a single bit of alcohol so you know its good. It's a light beer, but it's a good tasting beer for sure.
F- Lighter bodied mouth feel. Mild and enjoyable carbonation. Not too bad at all.
O- I used to live in Alabama, where they get this breweries beer. Unfortunately I live in Texas where they don't. This is all I've had from this brewery, but when I'm back home in Alabama I'll try and seek out more. This is a very good IPA. Extremely drinkable, hits all the right notes on the flavor, hides the alcohol exceptionally well for what it is, light bodied. I could drink plenty of these. Very impressed. I will seek this brewery out when I'm in the area again.

Light copper colored with a heavy amount of moderate to large sized sediment suspended within. There's a quarter inch to an inch of brown frothy foam resting on top. The aroma is of oranges and citrus hops. I'm tasting plenty of citrus hops and then some strong undercurrents of blood orange and the corresponding acidity. The mouth is dense and moderately acidic.

Had this on tap in a nice Frosty Glass. While I don't have quite the pallet that most of you all do... I thought immediately, "this is definitely one of my favorites coming out of Georgia." This brew is an enjoyable experience!

Only 2 months old but tasted stale and out of class. Not sure why rating is so high here.

Poured into a Spiegelau tulip from a can dated sometime in April (no date on the can itself, but I know the date on the 6-pack I bought was sometime in April). Liquid is bright cloudy orange, and the pour kicks up a solid head that fades pretty quickly to a ring and a film.

Aroma is lots of orange and a bit of soapy astringency, but very juicy. Smells super fruity and great.

Taste follows the nose - a bit of slightly-soapy bitter orange up front (which I'm guessing is blood orange), followed by grapefruit and passionfruit. There's a solid biscuity malt backing it up, and the finish is moderately bitter, with a super juicy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and creamy with lots of carbonation.

Overall, solid fruity IPA.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy golden yellow with a large white head. The aroma is fresh citrus. The taste is a mice mix of hops and oranges.

Poured from 12 oz can into Duvel tulip. No freshness date.
Lemon yellow with stiff 1-finger off-white head with good retention and lacing.
Aroma is mainly herbal dank with orange rind and grapefruit.
Flavor is similarly dank and herbal with a lot of pot and grassy/weedy flavor with orange and grapefruit in the finish. Bitterness is medium and brings some bite. Malt backbone is solid and very lightly sweet with a bready pale malt quality. No yeast character.
Feel is excellent with a slick, oily, coating mouthfeel with medium body and low-medium carbonation.
A really interesting beer with a unique dank, grassy, herbal hop character cut with orange and back with solid malt character.

12oz can, undated, assumed to be fresh, poured into a 14oz snifter glass.

The beer pours a hazy and turbid orange color, amber and copper hues with a foamy white head, about a finger tall that has good retention and yields lots of soapy lace. The aroma is nice, tangy blood orange juice, bitter citrus peel, light tropical fruits, a bit of pine and spice with some sweeter yeast and pale grain. The flavors are good, bitter citrus rind, light grapefruit juice and blood orange juice, some sweeter tropical fruit, hop spice, resinous pine and strong stale grain. The mouthfeel is good, coating, crisp medium body that has nice lively carbonation and a dry finish.

Verdict: A good IPA from Burnt Hickory and a fairly well done expression of blood orange. Lightly bitter, lightly juicy, nice almost sour tang to the citrus with some pleasant sweeter new england yeast and grain character. Easy going, good beer.
