3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice IPA, and one of the better brews from Dogwood. Standard IPA -- citrusy, floral, hops, with some sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy dark copper color with a big thick off white fully retained head and great lacing. Aroma is fresh hops, earth, and light perfume. Flavor is initially sweet, malty and earth. The finish is nicely bitter hops and spicy. A well crafted IPA.

IPA night courtesy of Ross sending me these terrific brews. Dogwood got a giant headout of bottle. Looks good, smells good and tastes great. Nothing better after a long hot day than great beer. This is seriously underrated in my opinion. Great hops/malts sweet tea undertone. Good southern beer!!!! The head on this one lasts a long time. Again, much much better than average score. I would pursue this one if I hadn’t just finished it.

Large creamy/rocky off-white head. Hazy gold body. Cascadey grapefruit with orange and caramel aroma. Flavor is spicy and has grassy grapefruit hops, and brown sugar sweetness. Very good!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very drinkable IPA. Smooth on the palate. Smells florally and almost like tomatoes. Looks pretty and golden. Tastes excellent. The malt is interesting in this one. Very cedary. Not a bad thing. Could have a more sticky maltiness to it. Hops are excellent in the nose and mouth. Standard and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large white head, excellent retention with a plethora of stringy, sticky lace. Hazy copper color. Flowery hop nose hints of citrus too. Med/light body. Light malt flavors, vinous notes with a mild astringency. Finish is medium dry, light hop bite. I expected more from this brew, not sure why though?

Murky orange. Very nice big hoppy aroma. Taste is dominated by hops - very dry, with an on toastyness to it. Thanks the Springslicker for this.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. WOW, this beer is dry hopped to death! It also had a very fruity aroma and back that made it very good. Reminiscent of Catawba Valley’s IPA with its subtle fruitiness. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - thanks to Beer_Cellar_2 for this one. Pours hazy/murky amber with small particles noticible and a large, frothy, off-white head that mostly diminished but left good lacing. Aroma is light malty of toasty, caramel malts, with moderately strong pine and grapefruit notes and a hint of honey. Flavor is initially sweet and acidic with a bitter hoppy finish. Medium body, mild oily texture with soft carbonation. This beer tasted slightly "stale" is the best way to describe it I guess, somewhat unbalanced needing more of a malt backbone to support the spicy hoppiness.

poured a cloudy orange with a big head. Had a hop bite but surprisingly not one that your get with US IPAs. I could drink this but would not seek it out, IPA lovers look elsewhere
