All Others Pale

500 mL bottle from Green’s on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA. $7.95 (or maybe $8.95) for the bottle.
Pour is a lively one with plenty of bone-white head on top of the mid-orange body. A little sticky lace.
A healthy dose of citrus/West coast pine in the nose and I think, “look out, this is going to be just too big!” Luckily the big nose is a little more tempered in the taste, and it seems to drink more like a diluted West Coast hopbomb. As the label suggests, there is a certain “green” feel to the hops.
This one skirts the edge of easy drinkability though, because the although the hops ARE controlled, they are still astringent and without a great deeal of malt support.
I think this is on the brink of being a DIPA in terms of the hop profile, although it drinks a little easier.
