3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on tap into a shaker at the General Store Cafe in Pittsboro, NC. This proved a bit lighter and sweeter than is optimal for an ipa, but still very nicely balanced, and with plenty of hop aromatics to compensate for the lack of a bitter finish. It laced the glass nicely and proved quite drinkable. A solid effort overall, and one of the best NC beers I have had.

Nice amber color on the bottom. Nice thick, two-finger, white head on top. Nice lacing left behind the slow fall of the foam. Smells of citrus and a bit of malt. Some carbonic nose as well. Big malty taste mixed with the hop flavor. Carbonation tickles the tongue as you are hit with the sweet bitterness of this divine nectar. Very good beer. I hope I can enjoy more of these in the future.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice amber color with a single-finger of white head that recedes somewhat quickly without really leaving behind all that much lacing. The nose is citrus and pine hops, although they aren’t terribly present. A bit of malt. The taste is slightly bitter and provides a hint of the hops, but not too much there. Slight bitterness in the feel. Not bad, but a pretty average IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

3/31/11. Bomber thanks to emacgee! Hazy orange pour with a huge khaki head that lasts and laces a ton. Sweet citrus and floral hop aroma with a hint of caramel malt backing. Smooth floral hop flavor (was hoping for even more citrus/grapefruit) with a solid malt backing and a nice dry/bitter kick at the end. Nice!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle provided by Mike, drank into my Hill Farmstead glass... Looks great, a dark clear peach with a big bright white head. Good thing cap with great lacing. Looks awesome!!!... Boring aroma of light toffee and hops, generic. Staleness to it... Taste is average at best, soapy boring hops, chemical bitterness, no malt balance. Average ipa that can be skipped.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewpub. Thanks to LuckyDog. Vibrant copper color, clear, good label. This came off more as a PA. Dry, not very resinous, a little fruit, earthy. A good solid mouthfeel without being too weighty or clingy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a touch perfumey, but mainly showcases resiny, fruity hops. Medium-bodied and a bit watery with modest carbonation. Not all that bitter, but there is lots of hop flavor here. Fantastic balance, but a smidge thin. Crisp, watery, lightly abrasive finish. Kudos to dosbeerigos for sharing the bottle!

Courtesy of rayl101. Brilliant copper, minimal head. Aroma has some caramel, oxidation, not much else, faint fruit. Flavor much the same, no flaws, just boring.
