COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This beer is aggressively Hopped; had noticeable bitterness with hints of grapefruit and pine, resulting from liberal dry hopping with American hops.

Bought at Krogers on Broadway. Clear golden with lots floating. Medium beige head. Aroma: Pine, citris. Flavor: Grapefruit/lemon, bread. Bitter finish. Most people don’t realise that the south is well known for its PA’s and IPA’s. North Carolina is probably best known but do not overlook Tennessee.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a hazy copper color with a white head that dissipates at a moderate rate. The aroma has subtle pine and more abundant citrus rind and a balancing doughy character. Starts mildly bitter, but as I continue to sip, I get more juicy sweetness. Nicely balanced. Medium body and medium to high carbonation.

Fat @ Brewpub. Just som jag givit upp om bryggeriet kom jag till den här på min flight. Trevliga dofter av citrus, grapefrukt och gräs. Rena och fina smaker av citrus, persika, ananas och tall. Härlig beska väl underbyggd av maltsötma.

My hub picked up a 6 pack of this when we were in TN. Pours a warm golden color with a touch of haze. Ok aroma. A little orange-rind flavor, nice aftertaste. I like it!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the brewery. Small bright white head. Not much aroma, I really can’t note anything specifically. Copper in color. Mild carbonation. Tastes pretty good, mild hop with some resin. Not much nuance. Palate is fine.
