Had a pint at the brewery today while touring Savannah for $6.50.

Beer was served amber orange with a decent white head upon the initial pour.

Nose had hints of citrus.

Taste initially was almost lager like, a nice clean pale malt base that provided a nice thirst quench on a warm and humid day. Hints of citrus became prevalent as the beer warmed.

Feel was medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall not a bad beer. I thought this beer missed the style mark a bit as this was the first beer of the day. Not bad, not great.

Pours hazy, orange-brown in color, with 1/2 inch head. Taste is honey, pine, and tangerine. Medium bodied, starts sweet then gets bitter and has strong bitter aftertaste. Makes for a solid warm weather sipper. One of the better Moon River beers I had.

Drinkable, but forgettable. Left a lot to be desired.

I remembered having this one night in town visiting Savannah, It was memorable. This is a good beer to be appreciated from an experienced IPA drinker. Not the best, but worth while and I would recommend seeing the brewery as well.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus and hops. The taste is packed full of hops with some citrus at the end. A really enjoyable beer.

On Tap at "The shrimp Factory" on the river walk downtown Savannah. Surprisingly good. 7% goes a long ways. Smooth, rich texture, golden color, crazy legs. Good beer!

On tap.
Light Amber body topped by a good head.
Overly thin body is well carbonated (medium) but a bit watery.
Fruity and herbal hop aroma with faint bready malts.
Moderate to light hop load and bitterness for style.
