3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Poured from a tap. Clear golden color, nice white medium head. Great floral hops essence. Nice complexity to the flavor, medium body with a slight floral hop taste and a Creme de mint Character and a nice finish.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can. Orange color, white foam with superb lacing. Nose is with mixed berries, earthy grains, herbal hops. Taste like and American IPA. Flavor of caramel and biscuit malts, lightly toasted grains. Hops flavor is very pleasing to the palate. Not overly bitter, well balanced. A little too high of an ABV, but goes down like a session ale. (3966)
