Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Chrisso for this one. Hazed golden coloured pour with a halo of off white head. Aroma is golden syrup, caramel, and spicy lemon hop. Flavour is lemon, caramel, spicy hop, hooch. Firm bitterness. Palate is medium bodied, highish carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Pittsboro NC location. Its not overly hoppy, mostly light earthy hops, mostly malt. Its okay, however it improved considerably after a few minutes warming up, something that brought out some better floral hop characteristics that were a bit masked when it was cold. A little pine in there, not too bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Five Points Bottle Shop (Lumpkin St.). Gentle citrus, grapefruit aroma, bit of caramel. Light hazy amber/straw color. Slightly sweet malt initial, goes to balance quickly, pine/citrus hops emerge in mid palate, light hop tracks in finish. Thin body, a bit flat. Okay. Somewhat light on the malt body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a can. Fairly drinkable and approachable if not a standout. Like the use of the Cascade hops to bring in a pine/citrus/floral thing without being overpowering. Pours that perfect, beautiful amber color that I am a sucker for. Little to no white head. Body and carbonation medium- not much slickness/ dankness on the palate. Drinks fairly light and pairs nicely with food. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
can @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah SC --- Slightly hazy medium amber with a big, billowy white head, bands and bunches of lace. Nice aroma of malt and citrus. Malt carries this Carolina Brewery offering, with hops joining in the finish. Malt reasserts itself, but in the end there is only citrus hops. This is really quite tasty, excellent with food (at least with Lean Cuisine tonight); not a typical IPA, not strong, but good stuff anyway.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can. Lightly hazy burnt orange with a lasting film of bubbles. Aroma is orange, pineapple, wooden hops, toast and some sticky pine resin. Tastes of caramel, resin, orange, melon and toast with a finish that has some touches of woody pith and green minty herb. Light-medium body has a nice balance and a refreshingly smooth, low-medium carbonation level. Pretty good sessioner that’s just different enough from most standard AIPAs to be interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pour of a light copper hazy brown with a nice off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and light earthy floral hops. Taste of big piney earthy hops with smooth caramel toffee taste. Med to light body with mild carbonation that plays off the bite of the hops with a long lingering bitter finish. Overall a solid beer that stays true to it's style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, pours a darker golden amber color, thin lacing. Floral and pine dominate the aroma. Medium body, light sweetness up front and medium dry bitter finish. This was a pretty good IPA but doesn’t stand out.
