Purchased in Laurel MS.
Pours a cloudy copper color with a white head that has average head retention.
Citrus hops jump out. There is some spicy hops as well.
Description on the bottle says they take Pale, Munich and Caramel malts and overwhelm with their hops. They do, because I don't get much on the malt side in the aroma, and get a little of it on the tongue that help nicely soften the hops and add some balance.
I liked it.

Served on-tap in a pint glass at the Yazoo tap room. Clear amber body with a one-finger off white head. Good lacing.

Nice aroma. Pine resin, grassy, with some grapefruit. Not expecting it to be too sweet.

Good hoppy flavors up front featuring the pine and grapefruit notes. Some muted sweet malt in the background but this one has a strong hop flavor. Well done.

My first IPA from Yazoo. Hope they keep them coming.

12oz bottled Feb 17, 2011. Enjoyed Feb 23, very fresh!!!

Pours slightly hazy copper/amber with a good foamy off-white head that leaves some nice lacing and holds a good cap.

Aroma is pine, orange and tangerine citrus, grapefruit, notes of grass and floral hops as well, caramel and bread tag along. Moderate to good strength.

Flavor is pine, resinous hops, citrus rind (grapefruit & orange), grass, fair caramel malt backbone, little to no sweetness, very nice bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, medium, almost prickly carbonation.

Another nice Hop Project from Yazoo. Keep 'em coming!

Pours a clear copper color with thumb sized cream colored head that falls fast but leaves some lace down my pint glass.

Aroma is very west coast nice juicy citrus notes orange, grapefruit dominating with some pine in the rear. All the hops are floating on a caramel base.

Taste is good caramel base lightly sweet moving right into bitterness not quit as fruity in the taste more tobacco/pine in flavor with grapefruit rind like bitterness lingering on the tongue.

Mouthfeel is good solid medium with nice level of carbonation.

Drinkability is good an enjoyable IPA had a Hop Project on draft while in Nashville it was nice also not sure which version it was though. Wild they use different hops so your IPA is always changing.
