Don't Call It Hotlanta by Monday Night Brewing was judged as a Double IPA (BJCP Style 22A) The beer poured a hazy dark yellow, with a limp head that doesn’t stand in your way of a freakishly intense hop experience. As sampled, it released a kaleidoscope of hop aromas running the gamut from mango/pineapple all the way to pine tree/dank. 

Notable flavors include tangerine, resin and earth, all supported by a biscuity malt backbone. Not overly bitter, but with enough IBUs to keep hopheads satisfied. It finished fizzy and medium-dry, which enhanced the drinkability of the ale, and concluded with a peppery note, backed up with some alcohol. 

A very smooth beer with oodles of hop goodness to relish.
