One thing I learned about the South was how hot it is. We tried to walk the city and ended up stopping every block to get back into the air conditioning. We ended up stopping at a bar by our hotel to try to get out of the heat for a bit, and this is what I had on tap.

ABV: 6.7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our IPA was brewed to remind us of the aroma of those tall Georgia pines, while the malty backbone balances everything out. Hopped up like a one-legged chicken, this ain’t your standard IPA, Darlin.”

Random: This came in at 74 IBUs.

The brew poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was bright orange and almost clear with light carbonation visible. They were not kidding about this beer reminding people of a pine tree. There was a lot of dank pine on the nose. It was balanced out by some floral hops and crackery malt at the end. The taste was just as piney as the nose. It didn’t have as much malt as I expected, but it wasn’t unbalanced as it came through at the end. Evergreen notes came through with some tangerine to give the beer some depth. The body was thick and chewy with high carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with a touch of caramel sweetness that paired with the tangerine. I enjoyed this beer and if I ever had a shot of trying it again, I wouldn’t hesitate.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
