2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Doubletree - Durham, NC: Cloudy, unclear copper color with no head. Aroma of mild hops and eggs. The flavor is weak for an IPA. Hairspray and way to malty for an IPA especially in the aftertaste. Ok, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured on tap into a shaker at the Mediterranean Cafe in Chapel Hill, NC. Pale yellow orange beneath a one-finger head, this beer gave off a decent hop aroma but tasted and drank more like a nice pale ale. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but I don’t really look for effervescence and sessionability in an ipa the same way I would in an apa. Tasty enough, but certainly nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear bright copper color with a white head, nice retention and lacing. Herbal and citrusy hops on the aroma along with a little bit of sweet malts and maybe even a tropical note. A bit of passionfruit comes through on the flavor to go with the orange/citrus from the hops, and a substantial caramel maltiness sits behind that. Medium-bodied with some hop resins on the palate. Now here we’ve finally got a decent beer from these guys. This one is not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Durham Bulls game - pours a light copper with a thin white head. The aroma is grapefruit, grass and caramel notes. Taste is slight grapefruit and some floral hops. Comes off more as an English Ale to me - but pretty tasty regardless of what you call it.
