Pours deep amber with good head and lacing. Balanced aroma with both hop and caramel notes, Flavor has assertive bitterness up front with malt flavors in middle and refreshing finish. Good IPA, the can listed 7.6 ABV but website has 6.2 which I think is more accurate.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy orange/amber mixture with only a finger sized off white head but leaves some descent lace non the less.

Aroma is hoppy fruity basic three c hops , grapefruit, dank tobacco notes, overripe fruits on a base that has good malty backbone with caramel notes.

Taste is like the nose good malty brew with caramel notes and plenty of dank hops with some brighter citrus highlights. Good combination of malty and hoppy good dank hop flavors with a easy drinking lighter bitterness. Only 62 IBU but flavors and the nose say its more even if the bitterness doesn't.

Mouthfeel is medium with fairly mellow carbonation that seems spot on and doesn't draw you attention.

Overall a good IPA was recommended by my local Beer shop maiden and she wasn't wrong a good solid IPA, even though her high praise of her favorite might be overrated, would definitely recommend.

I'm trying this at the brewery. I noticed other ratings....very high....i don't think I would put this on par with other ipas out there.....but what do I know. It poured a slightly hazy golden with thin head and no lace. The scent had hints of tropical fruit. The taste was bitter leaning with fruit citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's decent...but how this is rated against top shelf ipas....i don't know....maybe I'm missing something.

Color: clear orange with half finger white head. Aroma: strong grapefruit and pine with faint tropical aroma taste: citrus up front with resiny pine at end, minimal sweetness from malt. Lots of hops. Mouthfeel: medium body Overall: awesome hop bomb that is achieved in relatively low grav IPA without being I overly bitter

My favorite ipa coming out of Tennessee. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Citrusy and just enough bitterness with just enough malt to balance it out.
