3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich deep hazy copper coloured body with a light bronze glow and a thick, seven centimetre tall soapy , billowy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, alcohol, light hops, malt, soap and a hint of earthiness. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and slightly herbal hops show well up front with a light but relatively balanced malt body and a hint of earthiness from the malt lingers on the palate. Aftertaste shows a very smooth, especially for the style, finish of citrus-based hops and a touch of cardboardie malt. Overall, a nice IPA that borders on the lighter side, but full of hops and a very easy-to-drink body. This is like a cross between a light IPA and a full IPA, and makes for a nice summer drink, for sure! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Cary, North Carolina on 02-August-2014 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-November-2014.

12 oz can. BB 12/25/14. (Chip’s Wine & Beer) Kill Devil Hills, NC.
Clear amber colour with a big foamy white head.
The aroma is strong fruity and resiny hoppy with moderate bitterness, sweet maltiness and some herbal notes.
The flavour is strong resiny, grapefruity and herbal hops, strong bitterness and sweet maltiness. The hoppy bitterness is a bit harsh which makes this a tad unbalanced.
