KajII (774) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that slowly diminished, reducing to a medium puddled film and medium collar with very good sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a light fruity ester (pineapple I believe). The taste was lightly malty-sweet with a touch of caramel and a good fruity presence from the start, progressing into a slightly bitter hoppy taste with a hint of grapefruit and a seriously bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for a good long while, with the bitter citrus peel taste hitting you right in the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was a few steps beyond light in body and dry in texture with a solid medium carbonation. Overall this is a nice fruity, bitter IPA that I found to be balanced very well, making it a smooth and easy to drink brew...

Very nice IPA wit lots of nose, plenty of aromatic ops, fresh and clean. Only modest head and no lacing.

Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a nice pale tan head. Hoppy aroma has a firm underpinning of sour orange. Flavor has a bold hoppy core that supports hay and citrus notes, and is only slightly bitter. Texture is firm, fizzy and lively. Go ahead, take a chance with it!

scotchzombie (292) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours a hazy and familiar orange amber color with a nice off-white head that laces well and settles to a rich coating. Aroma is a nice sweet and resiny floral caramel fruit berry citrus. Taste is smooth with orange and grapefruit citrus upfront, followed by a dry hop bitterness on the back. It's the bitterness that hangs with you in the aftertaste. This is a straight up solid and sessionable AIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11/28/13. 12oz bottle snagged before I left Asheville. Hazy light amber orange with a small khaki head that I had to force and it’s gone fast. Mild aroma, earthy hops, dark sugars, mehhh. Malty flavor, earthy, almost no hop. Meh.

Poured from the bottle. Aroma is a nice mix of malt and hop bitterness. Get some citrus fruits, but nothing stands out. Color is a nice orange with sizable white head. Flavor has a strong malt flavor, with minor hop bitterness. The bitterness does linger a bit on the tongue. Would prefer more hop flavor up front.

Enthalpy (14) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy orange. In fact, there’s some actual solids floating around the beer. That’s a bit off-putting unless it’s a friend’s batch. Smells grassy with a yeasty overtone. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, grass clippings, and pine, with the latter dominating the finish. Slight bitterness which lingers on the tongue. Intriguing beer that is let down by the appearance.
