Bottle. Appearance: very clear golden orange with frothy white head. Aroma: big floral notes, some tangerine, grapefruit, and pine. Taste: mild floral hoppiness up front with a little citrus coming in and a light bread and toast backbone ending with some dry tea leaf and bitter pine. Mouthfeel: thinnish body with medium carbonation. Overall: It is decent. The aroma definitely sets up great expectations but the taste was quite a bit flat by comparison. It's a solid beginning for this new brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I bought this one because of the name, and the bottle and because it’s an IPA I haven’t tried. Big grapefruit aroma, like a bottle of grapefruit juice. Taste is bitter and dry with grapefruit and pine. Really good take on a west coast IPA from the East Coast, definitely try it if you can. Cheers!

Taste- The hops come through with a nice melding with the citrus flavors, nice taste. Palate- A really good IPA, has a medium body with mild carbonation and an oily texture. Overall- I liked this beer, I will drink it again when I am back in the area.

zizzybalubba (1593) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2015
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Rusty orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, pineapple, and fresh pine. Bitter hop taste of pine, wet grass, and grapefruit with plenty of balancing caramel malts. The initial taste seems rather balanced but the hop bitterness manages to linger longer that the malt sweetness. A nicely done IPA.

Great nose. Very dank beer, hops about punch your face. Lacks a little body, but overall a good beer.
