draft. a so-so IPA pretty good hop character but with a watery weak unbalanced malt.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2005
On draught at Barleys, Knoxville Feb 2005. Medium golden hued body, slight haze to it with a firm white head. Aroma has plenty of hops appeal as does the flavor and there is a typical caramel malt backing on this. Well-executed on all levels. Very drinkable, with a strong floral hops flavor that complements the honey-like sweetness of the beer well. Dry, bitter alpha hops finish, medium body, moderate carbonation.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2005
On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville. Cloudy dark gold appearance. This is very homebrew-like! Unfiltered by design. Excellent mouth bitterness with a good caramel flavor. This is a great beer!

wow this is what IPAs should taste like, and from NC at that. this has a monster amount of hops in it. on tap at barleys. pours out yellow colored with a white head. smells of pine, grapefruits, and loads of hops. taste is almost identical. i cant believe this was actually made in NC. the best NC beer, hands down.

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.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2004
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.
