3.93/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz. can, served in a Rastal Craft Master Grand.

Appearance: The thick, one a half finger head stays around for a long time and leaves behind a lot of thick lacing. It's a slightly hazy, bright gold color.

Smell: It's a good mix of hoppy aromas. There's some floral and citrus fruit notes along with some musk in the background.

Taste: It starts off bitter with some grapefruit peel, lemon and orange. There's some grain and malt sweetness towards the end but the hops are the stars of the show.

Mouthfeel: It's crisp and medium bodied with medium-high carbonation.

Overall: A good IPA that has a lot of different hop characteristics present without one overpowering the other. The flavor profile is well executed.

Purchased off the single shelf at Legacy.
LOOK: Pours a light orange/amber in color with a one finger off white head that slowly fades.
AROMA: Get a mild IPA hop aroma, musky I get some honeydew as well as sweet breadaroma.
TASTE: Still mild hops that are a bit tart.
This IPA will probably get panned by the HOP lovers. For me I like some hops but don't want to be overwhelmed by them and this beer does that.

Enjoyed a sample at my local Growler store and ended up going home with a fill. Light and refreshing but not watered down or overly fruity as the trend seems to be with IPAs. Has the right balance for a sessionable quality.

I will be returning for this one!

16 ounce pint - At Longhorns Steakhouse in Towne Lake, Georgia.

Appearance: Nice orange-golden hue with a half-inch cap of beautiful white foam and very nice lacing .

Smell: Very traditional IPA aroma, nothing crazy just plain good old fashioned hops. Grapefruit with a slight spiciness with further fruity hop accents throughout.

Taste: Nice malt base with a with tropical hop character hinting of melon, pineapple and citrusy grapefruit. Medium degree of bitterness. Love the dryness of this IPA, keeps you coming back for more.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light, lean-leaning body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Excellent

Clear golden pour with excellent lacing and retention.

Good nose of tropical fruit over a grainy biscuit with just a hint of sweetness. Passion fruit, mango, orange, pineapple and light orange zest comprise the complex tropical blend.

Smooth with a nice Dry Finish. Superb carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle.

The flavor profile is quite outstanding. Hop flavors are very traditional and extremely well balanced..

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet hops. The taste is exceptional, sweet hops and malt. A really good beer.

On tap at 2016 Hogs and Hops and revisited in tap in January 2018. (Review done ignoring one tap that seemed to be a soured batch.)

Off-white head over a brown--amber body. Medium body and carbonation.

Rich aroma with adequate hops and more malts than expected for style.

Flavor follows although more hops than the aroma suggests. Moderate bitterness for style.

Overall: decent Brown IPA.

First had at Marlow's Tavern, Kennesaw, Georgia, on draft into tumbler. Dry County is a new brewery and this is its first beer, a solid, more traditional IPA.

I had this at the Hail Mary Sports Pub in Grayson, GA. It was a very light beer for an IPA. Most IPAs now try to overwhelm the drinker with hops. This doesn't do that. It's a slightly hoppy beer that is still very drinkable for an extended sitting.

It has a good color and aroma, as well. A solid choice.

16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: A hazy, orange-golden body with a half-inch cap of off-white foam leaving some stray streaks of lacing on the way down.

Smell: Pale malts with a vague kiss of wildflower honey. Juicy grapefruit with a little showing of spiciness with further fruity hop accents throughout.

Taste: A pale malt base with a minimally sweet glaze of honey. Floral, tropical hop character hinting of melon, pineapple and citrusy grapefruit. Medium degree of bitterness. Sufficiently drying on the last half with a final hint of the pale maltiness at the close.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light, lean-leaning body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not bad!

Had a Dry County IPA while in the ATL recently and was very pleasantly surprised by this new beer. Sort of a original style IPA. In today's beer culture everyon is trying to be unique and this beer does that by being closer to a traditional IPA than anything I have had in a long time. Good aroma and great flavor.

Comes out of the tap clear amber with a thick pale buff head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is more malty than hoppy, but has a nice fruity component. Flavor presents more hops and woodiness, fairly strong and pleasing. Mouthfeel has average body and fairly strong fizz. Give this brand new brewery a fair chance!
