A new locally brewed IPA, picked up at FPBS in Athens. Bottle states: "Hoppier than a bullfrog with a stubbed toe."

The smell is piney and bitter fruit hop aromas. The malt is not too present in the nose. The yeast floats around in tiny clusters evenly throughout the body of this brew.

The flavor is better than expected given Red Bricks 16 year history, but they have made a bunch of changes in the right direction lately (IMO). This tastes like a much dryer and more pine bitter IPA than say Sweetwater or Terrapin offerings. It finishes crisp and only slightly bitter compared to it's up front resin and sharp grapefruit flavor due to a clean and somewhat sweet malt base.

The mouthfeel is fine, neither too thick or heavy.

Overall I'm happy this offering is around. A locally made fresh IPA that offers a different take on the style is needed in GA and I believe it would hold up elsewhere as well. It's a bit on the bitter side when I think IPA, but it's also a nice change.
