3.56/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy, dark copper body with a small, off-white head.

Smell: Gentle aroma of light caramel and citrus hops.

Taste: Light caramel flavor with a vague, mild sweetness. Nice burst of earthy, citrusy hop flavor along with a gentle bitterness. Mild finish, in fact before I started typing up my notes I was recalling this as a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Not bad at all! It definitely paired well with the shrimp & grits.

Thanks to wayne for bringing this one back for the group to taste.

A: Pours a nice shade of amber with a nice whispy head. Nice sheet lacing.

S: Nice caramel malt aromas up front with a big bold blast of citrus hops.

T: Nice malt sweetness up front which is quickly overtaken by the hops. Tons of citrus with subtle notes of pine and grass. A solid IPA.

M: Medium in body, smooth, with good carbonation.

D: Tasty and Drinkable. What more can you ask for.

Thanks Wayne!

Dark copper with a small white head of foam that dies quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Aromas of fresh cut green grass, hops,a dn biscuity malts. Taste is hoppy up front but not too hoppy, malts play a nice balancing role as well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, carbonation level is good. Drinkability si good as well. Certainly nothing crazy but a solid quencher on a 102 degree day. Go war eagle
