Our IPA uses Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hops, and is further dry hopped with Magnum and Willamette. 2-Row Pale, Vienna and Crystal malts balance nicely, resulting in a bright, citrus forward flavor.

This beer comes across as a one-hop show from the first nose. Poured into a wide mouth tulip from a 12oz can. Pours orange-golden and fairly hazy. Smells of underdeveloped bittering hops and not much else, no fruit, no pine, just whiffs like the first hop over a homebrew batch. Taste follows suit with a single dimension of big bitter with no palate payoff. Malt is almost non-existent. (as advertised) This beer would have possibility with a lot more hop complexity.

ACHops (850) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2012
12oz can from Southern Season. Pours cloudy pale orangish with thick fluffy head. Aroma is punchy earthy hops. Taste is clean bitter somewhat harsh hops and light golden body. Hops are lacking in complexity, no citrusy or pine notes really. A bit one dimensional. I have to say, I never though I’d see a beer from Fuquay-Varina... the amount of growth in craft beer in the Triangle over the past 10 years is amazing.

tricyclist (960) - Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Sample pour of slightly hazed gold with full finger fully white head. Nose is quite citrusy and hopped, grassy, some different off flavors I can’t quite place. Flavor is similar. Great hop character but that off flavor comes in on the back and kinda lingers.

Draft. Pours a darker golden color, thin tan head. One of the better aromas in my opinion, really enjoyed it - floral, grass, pine, citrus, and touch of berry. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, average carb, medium bitter hop finish. Best offering from Aviator with this well-round IPA.

Shared bomber to snifter (thanks Ray). Looks solid; a semi-transparent orange with off-white head. Smells of bitter hops and malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle:   Somewhat of a dirty orangish golden with sediment floating about, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Pithy nose, a little dank and musty.   Pith and orange peel on the tongue.   Not bitter, not too sweet, very much middle of the road.   Slight pixie stix like presense.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not very bright on the tongue.   Seems like a hefty Pale Ale, or perhaps a 3/4 IPA.   Enjoyable, but lacks any ZING.   Lingering citrus peel and pithiness on the tongue.   Thanks for the bottle Jeff!

bubbleflubber (1893) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours an orange-amber into the glass, with a soapy 3-finger head that leaves window-wash lacing down the glass. The nose is caramel, toffee, citrus and some light floral notes. Flavors are of toffee, biscuit flour, tart citrus and bitters. The elongated finish is biscuity, of dry flour and woody earth. The body is medium with an active mouthfeel. Decent IPA here, substantive and very drinkable.
