Draft. Nice unfiltered golden color. The hops are very evident in the aroma. The flavor is very hoppy. A great IPA. One of my favorite North Carolina beers!

A quite simple IPA with loads of hops and bitterness. Not for everyone, but hop-heads should like this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color with a moderate, whitish head. Strong hop nose - citrus and pine. Very hoppy in the WC IPA style with significant malt backbone consisting of toffee and caramel flavors. Very full bodied. Nice, dry finish. Very enjoyable.

Draught version. Good aroma and color opens for a beer with a very pleasing hoppy profile. Well balanced with a nice malt base. Hops follow through to the end. Good beer.

On tap at the Bier Garden in Asheville. This is definitely a beer for hopheads, as it's almost over the top. Nice fruity notes in the flavor as well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An orange/amber color to it. A nice big white foamy head. Somewhat of a hoppy smell but nothing big. Average taste. Nothing really spectacular. An average IPA in my opinion.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good orange tint to a golden body, with a nice off-white head. Hoppy smell and slightly citrusey. Good overall taste with a little hoppy taste lingering on the palate for a while. Not a bad IPA!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice golden orange color, like an orangutan with highlights. Hops dominate the nose and taste, but has an appealing earthiness - also like an oragutan. A lttle light on the finish.
