Tap @ Hilton RDU at RTP: Clear copper color with small off-white head and sticky lacing. Floral, hop aroma, toast, grass, balanced flavor with a mild hair spray aftertaste. Not bad, easy to drink - exceeded my expectations.

For an IPA, this is awfully meh.. Pours a dark gold with a thick head. Not very hoppy in either taste or smell. Easy on the palate, but not in a particularly appealing way.

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a medium copper amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that reduced to a medium cap which lead to some really nice streaky lacing. The aroma was of a mild straw malt, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel). The taste was moderately bitter with a mild sweet maltiness and a touch of caramel early on, and then progressed into this hoppy bitter taste that had a good note of citrus towards the end. The flavor lasted for quite a long while with the hoppy citrus flavor fading nice and slow. Mouthfeel was just above light in body with a decently dry texture and a moderate carbonation. Overall an IPA that gets back to the basics: hops, citrus and a mild caramel malty taste. You really don’t need much else...

Cybercat (3339) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Pours a dark, coppery amber, almost mahogany, that is crystal clear and has a fairly thick, fluffy and somewhat persistent off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity, not strong but still appetizing. Hoppy flavor has subtle woody and fruity notes and minimal bitterness. Texture is smooth, firm-bodied and fairly fizzy. Not spectacular, but still enjoyable.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Pours a clear hazelnut with a nice off white head. Huge grapefruit aroma o’ hops. This is one of the better IPA’s I’ve had because it is perfectly balanced and not overly bitter. A creamy mouthfeel of roasty malt and a bit of hoppy pine. Finish is smooth with the slightest lingering of citric bitterness.

guzzler67 (1506) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Blurred, reddish amber appearance with a small, fast fading, off white head and moderate lacing. Spicy hop aroma with a hint of caramel malts. Subtle citrus hop taste with toffeeish malts in the background. Medium-to-light bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish, Not exciting but not a drain pour either.

Capa (2030) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 29, 2010
Copper colored with a white head. Medium citrus and pine hops with light caramel malts, too. Light hop bite and a bit of sweet malts, too. Refreshing on the beach. Nice but nothing special.

jrob21 (2567) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Nice white head and cloudy orange color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit citrus hops. Some green apple fruit flavor as well. Finish is a nice citrus bitterness. A bit of a cream, buttery texture. Is that an infection?
