COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

22 ounce from Bruisin Ales. Nice orange ish color. Solid carbonation. Hoppy and clean. Slight fruit flavor produced by yeast. Bit of malt.

Had this one on-tap at Red Robin in Mooresville. Spent a day on the lake and needed some red meat and beer close it out. Glad to see this one on tap in the midst of below-average beer. Came out poured-to-the-brim a deep orange/gold. The nose was ripe with fresh hops. Carried with it a mild toasted finish. Moderate-to-full feel. Carbed up well. Hops are king in this one. Bitter goodness, with a subtle sweet kiss, takes over. Peppery and spicy as well. I’ve got to take a bite of burger to calm my tastebuds down after sipping this one. A really bitter one here. I like it. Not the most refreshing IPA out there, but this gets it done. Nice work, Aviator.

I think this is a pretty reasonable IPA, but nothing remarkable. Pours a darker golden color with a moderate white head. Good level of hoppiness to it, but not too much. Easy drink.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Tap at Milltown. Light cloudy golden with light white lace. Nose is pretty nice-light tropics, citrus, mango, guava, light grass, some Light cotton candy. Flavor is very bitter, grassy, very waxy, dry and astringent. Really like that nose- this is good to see from Avaiator.

bottle. a clear gold beer under a small, frothy, white head. piney hops with crystal malt nose with a bit of white grapefruit. a strikingly bitter beer with white grapefruit and lemony hops. soapy. very dry. not a lot of sweetness. a hop showcase styled ipa.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2012
Draft. Clear pale color. Finger thick no rocky off white head. Chinook aroma is robust. Quite bitter for a IPA. I've had double IPAs that don't linger as long as this one. It tastes like it was dry hopped with cascade. It's that prevalent. Lacing is among the best I've seen. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Scent is citrus and pine. Taste is citrus and grass.

I like this beer more than others. On draft at Lafayette Village Grill. BTW...they have a GREAT NC beer selection. Cloudy...big citrus..seems like a very fresh keg. Will order when I see it on draft.

Bottle.  Pours orange with thick off white head.  Nice citrus hop aroma.  Good lacing.  Taste has light bitterness.  Taste of resiny hops and bread.  Thin mouthfeel.  Decent.
