Draft at Emory conference center Atlanta. OK, I generally dont like IPAs back east. Being from MT, there is a distinct difference between NW IPA's and those east. I always have a criticism. Not this one. This is one killer IPA. Buy it, drink it. Nuff said. Even got lace on side of the glass.

Had on draft at Zachry's near Brunswick, GA. A very enjoyable selection. Was looking forward to this southern IPA and was not disappointed! I will definitely look for this in the future.

Pours a great clear orange Amber with excellent lacing.
Smells of pine, bread and very light citrus.
Tastes hoppy with too much carbonation
Feels a bit scratchy but some like it that way
Overall this is a good, not great beer that would not be in my Top 20 IPAs

Good mellow IPA. Nice finish. Moderately hopped. Deceptive ABV of 7.5. Very smooth. Got it at Brogen’s Irish Pub in St. Simon’s Island, GA.

Had at Savannah Taphouse, Savannah, on draft into pint tumbler.

It can be risky to brew a balanced IPA in the late ‘teens. This beer doesn’t try to knock your socks off. But this deceptive 7.50 IPA remains very interesting and drinks . . . often.

pours a clear amber with a medium head. nose; floral citrus zest, mango, pineapple, washed grain, & lightly piney resinous hops. taste; easy caramel malt, light guava sweetness, grapefruit rind, mango, pineapple, bread, & light pine/bright citrus (citra hops). very well balanced and decently complex. medium carbonation & mouthfeel. a very solid ipa from these georgian newcomers!

Scofflaw hit it out of the park with Basement. What a great IPA! This beer feels perfect while going down the hatch. Aftertaste is very smooth for an IPA. Highly recommended.

Got in a BIF from KMitch. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy medium golden/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big ruby grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big ruby grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of ruby grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/sticky, and fairly crisp/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; extremely smooth, easy, and fairly crisp to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish, not aggressive. Amazing Citra/Chinook showcase. Very juicy, vibrant, dank, and earthy balanced hop complexity; with a nice sized bready malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, loved the hop profile as expected.
