Up to date, this is one of the only, if not the only IPA I actually enjoy. I’m not a big fan of IPAs, but when a friend offered to split a pitcher of this stuff, because he likes it so much and wanted me to taste it, I agreed. It’s very unique blend that somehow confused my senses into not thinking it was an IPA. Worth trying out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Carolina Beer Company bar in the Charlotte Airport The IPA poured a clear light amber color with an off white head. The nose detects grapefruit rind, yeast and some pine. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. The taste was more complex with caramel malt balanced with floral hops. Hop bitterness swells in the back, guiding the brew towards a pleasantly dry finish.

Can. Fruit and pepper aroma. Fruity english hops in the taste. Pretty good ipa but nothing extraordinary.

12 oz can served in a pint glass. Listed on the can a 6% abv. Pours slightly hazy dark golden with medium off-white head. Aroma is light caramel malt and light spicy hops. Taste is chewy caramel malt, nice floral earthy hops on the back. Somewhat thin mouthfeel and the hops take over. Lingers bitter and dry on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at the brewery, Asheville, 1/1/15
Aroma: It has a fairly mild aroma, light hops, orange/citrus, and a bit of bread
Appearance: It has a clear orange color with a small white head and some decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, with light malty sweetness and thin hops
Palate: The body of this one is light-medium, and it has a decent feel overall
I actually preferred most of the other, less common, Catawba beers to their flagship IPA. It’s a decent beer, but it’s a little dull.

Can. To be honest, I was at this dive called Horsefeathers in the middle of Sherrills Ford, NC and was so surprised to see an honest to goodness craft beer selection. I drank 3 right out of the can and it was good. The end.

Ok IPA. More akin to a pale ale IMHO
Mild flavor, subtle aroma, and easy drinking.

From a can. Pours murky amber copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like nutty malt, grapefruit, dry pine. Light body and low carbonation. Smells nutty, malty, like grapefruit, caramel, and light pine.
