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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
