3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber appearance with a small, off white head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus quickly overpowered the grain in the foreground. Sweet citrus hop taste with a firm malt backbone. Bitter, yet smooth, aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel and a lingering finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Charlotte airport, the most American place in the world. Smells ok, like mediocre hoppy beer. No citris smell. Copper color. Tastes nice enough. Not much citrus. Too sickly thick and sweet. Good enough IPA, but boring at this point.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
20 oz draft pour at Taste of Carolina in the Charlotte, North Carolina airport. The pour is a light haze golden reddish with a 1 inch light white head. Nice lace left behind. The Aroma is resin, pine, and a light faint citrus. There is a fair amount of cracker malt present as well. Nice balanced nose. The taste is the nose, nice blend of resin pine a fruit citrus balanced with the dry cracker malt, all leading to a dry bitter finish. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation, and a dry mineral finish with the bitterness. Nice enough, though didn’t have the vibrancy of a fresh IPA.
