    Pours with a slight chill haze, still able to see through. Inch of frothy foam covers. Retention is solid with the foam thinning out, instead of the usual thickening as it recedes. Sporadic, spotty lacing.

    Aroma of citrus, pine and herbal hops. Dank and resinous. Bread malt holds up deep in the background.

    Taste has a touch of sweetness in the middle that is held up by more citrus and fruity hop flavors. Pine and herbal notes come late. Citrus and pine, hints of fruit, lingering with a dull bitterness. "Sense" of mosiac hops late.

    Big end of light body. Medium carbonation. Crisp and dry.

    A pleasant surprise of a beer. It was recommended to me while passing through Columbus, GA. Wish I had more. The bitterness builds over time taking the drinkability down slightly. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Slap Fight will woo you in with a West Coast-style malt bill, but slaps you across the face with its tropical hop profile. Light in body, heavy in character, this IPA features Munich and Crystal pale malts for a clean, rich mouthfeel. Comet, Equinox and Mosaic hops lend a pungent herbal aroma, peppered with hints of papaya, orange and grapefruit. Present this beer to a friend. If he does not drink it immediately, slap him as hard as you can. Repeat.
