Heavy citrus taste up front with a hoppy dry finish. Strong NC IPA that is up there in flavor. On of the best aromas in in IPA. Worth drinking! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice clear medium amber with a hint of red. Ample head and a lacing that lasts. Nice nose of citrus hops over a slight pine and slight sweet biscuit character. Light body with a smooth texture. Above average carbonation. Nice balanced taste of hops, mostly citrus but with a notable pine influence, biscuit and bitterness. It begins with citrus, progresses to pine and associated pleasant bitterness over a biscuit sweetness. It then effervesces into a tart bitterness that approaches dry. A slight sweetness and tart bitterness lingers. Very well balanced and flavorful.

Draft at Barley’s - Asheville. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. Some ripe citrus in the nose, orange, tangerine, but of pine. Medium sweet flavor, some more citrus, bit of rind and grass, pine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Somewhat bitter to finish, more pine, citrus rind, balancing dry bread malts. Decent.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Rich, slightly hazy amber and copper coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall tan head and a good orange glow. Aroma of bright piney, resinous and citrus hops, some good malt and hints of peaches and apricot sweetness. Light-bodied; Strong citrus and grapefruity hops with a mild malt flavour and some subtle sweetness from oranges and apricots. Aftertaste shows a proper balance of malt and hops with a hint of hop bitterness, but nothing like a traditional IPA. Overall, a nice beer that shows closer to an APA than an IPA. Nice, but the hops simply aren’t there, and the complexity isn’t too strong. Good to sample, but there are much better IPAs (or even APAs) out there. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom), DC on 13-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington just two weeks later on 01-February-2014.
