There are two craft beers that are nearing cult-like status in Atlanta. Transmigration of Souls, an "irresponsibly hopped" IPA and Serpent Bite, a dry-hopped sour that may just be the perfect brunch beer. These offerings from Orpheus Brewing recently made their debut for the year – and to further add to the excitement for craft beer lovers, the formerly seasonal beers have now been made available year-round due to popular demand.
Orpheus is most known for its delicious sour offerings, and Serpent Bite and Transmigration both highlight the brewery's passion for sours and hops. In a recent feature, Craftbeer.com named Orpheus brewmaster and founder Jason Pellett "Atlanta's Sour Beer Trailblazer". Here's a little more about the beers and Orpheus Brewing:

Transmigration of Souls - Inspired by the Orphic bone tablets which explore the dichotomous nature of life and death, Orpheus Brewing's Bone Tablet series reveals the many sides of the IPA. Transmigration of Souls is an irresponsibly hopped Double IPA, bursting with life from an absurd amount of aromatic hops. You’ll experience a bouquet of orange, lemon, and tropical fruit sitting on top of a clean, dry malt body. This beer is very overpowering; just pair it with another Transmigration of Souls. If you must eat, Transmigration of Souls is bold and dry, with an abundance of tropical fruit. It will pair well with spicy food. Available on draft and in 6-pack cans. Distributed throughout GA and AL.
Hops: Featuring Azacca and Wakatu
Grain: Two-row barley, white wheat
Fermentation: American Ale yeast
Label Design: Sam Parker
