COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very unique American style India Pale Ale. Our IPA features a dark copper color that is clear with a solid head that is off white in color. It has medium maltiness and body. Hop flavor and aroma is high with medium hop bitterness. The hop profile is very interesting as it has the standard fruity, floral and citrus like hop character that you would expect from an American IPA but ours also has tropical type flavors and aroma that makes it distinctive. Food pairing will make spicy foods hotter and counter balance foods that are very rich and sweet like desserts, caramelized meats and fatty cheeses. A portion of sales go to support the Museum of the Marine.

Growler from the Veggie Wagon. Orange color, white head; smells of grass, citrus, hops, etc. Taste is bitter, fruity, plenty of citrus and has a pretty big malt backend to it as well. Not a bad beer really, I had never heard of this brewery before.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2014
Sampled at Hickory Hops 2014. What an odd set up for this one. Just one guy, one posterboard "banner". Really, no marketing whatsoever. The beer was not bad though. This IPA seemed a little on the malty side, with spruce or resiny hops.

Tap at Duckworths. Had no idea Trenton, NC had a brewery. A pretty solid IPA in NC is nothing to sneeze at.

Pint at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma. Sweet. citrus . On the orange side. Clean brownish orange color ok head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Good. Nothing to wow you. Undistinguishable from many. But solid enough. Flavor might be best part. Nice sweet bitter mix.

Foxbush (1250) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Draft at the Taproom The ale poured a light amber with small white head and lacing. The IPA had a nice resin aroma with some citrus. This was their hoppiest beer so far. The brewery is located in Trenton, NC. This is a well balanced ale with resin and citrus in the flavors. The body could be fuller and the carbonation was average. From start to finish there was nice tartness.

Tap at busy bee upstairs (aka "the hive"). Orange amber, light haze, small white head, steady lace. Nose is piney, grapefruit, and resin, nice malt balance. Flavor is similar. A well balanced NC iPa from a brewery I have never heard of.
