Fruity and bready notes in the nose. Amber with a hint of orange and a foamy cream head. Bitter with fruit notes and good balance. Medium bodied and smooth in the mouth with a grapefruit bitter finish.

12oz can. Pours a bright gold-orange color with a thin head of soapy white cream. Aroma is sharp, resiny, bitter hops. The hop bite strikes quickly and fiercely. The malts are certain pushed to the background as the hops jump all over my palate. Not my style - if a beer is going to be so completely hop-centric, I prefer it to be floral or grapfruity rather than bitter and piney.

Tap. Straw with decent head ad decent lacing. Not much aroma, maybe light grapefruit. Flaor is light as well, dry with a light bitterness. Clean, slick, light bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. Pours a dark orange with a smaller off white head and decent retention that left some lacing throughout. Aroma was of spicy, earthy hops, little piney. Taste was pine forward and spicy hops with some citrus with maximized bitterness. Pretty standard IPA, but without the date on the bottle I would guess that this was slightly past its prime due to the large bitterness with some of the taste falling off. Also a bit to piney for my tastes, but drinkable nontheless.

Spent the weekend backpacking the Art Loeb Trail. Couldn’t leave Brevard without picking up some local North Carolina stuff. Unfortunately and inexplicably all the local beer stores appeared to be closed on Sundays. Enjoyed this beer upon my return while strolling through Grant Park. Poured a hazy amber with good head and lacing. Pleasant aroma, but the flavor notes were to0 grassy/grainy and too bitter to be something I would seek out. Bomber - Ingles Supermarket - Brevard, NC

Wow. Have you ever heard of the saying "if something is too good to be true, it probably is"? THIS is the exception

Pretty good IPA here. I bought a sixer for the road as I was not a resident and it is still decent in cans.

Clear golden amber with a forever 3/4" head and thick sheets of lace. Full malty taste is immediately countered by light-medium pine hops. The hops win out at the finish, leaving a long bitter residue. Very drinkable, not filling, especially good with light fare. Recommended.

Can. Pours a clear deep gold with a light tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of pine and light citrus and an earthy grain backing. Flavor has earhy grains and pine with a good amount of earthiness.
