Poured from the tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The appearance is a nice amber color. The aroma has an odd hop scent that carries through to the taste. Overall, an average beer.

Poured from 32 oz growler into snifter glass.

A: Pours crystal clear golden yellow with a nice red tint. Nice 2-3 finger white head and a fairly significant amount of sticky lacing.

S: Grapefruit, orange peel, pine, bitter hops.

T: Nice citrus flavors with hop bitterness.

M: Medium body with nice carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

O: A very solid IPA. I like it when one of the local breweries is making a quality product.

Mach 1 IPA from the Rocket Republic was good. I am impressed with the local brewers in Huntsville, AL - the last place I would think good brewing would come from, but there it is, nonetheless.

Great looking beer with a nice dark caramel colored head -good staying power and very nice lacing. Smell was outstanding, rich undertones of coriander, roasted malts, and cinnamon. Mouthfeel was just about right, although the aftertaste was a bit too strong for my liking. Taste was just about right, not quite there as the bitterness of the IPA took away from those rich flavorings smelled from the glass. Overall, I was impressed and sadly only was able to try two.
