Lively hop explosion in a glass. Caramel color, sweet body to balance the harsh bitter finish. Really drinkable. Notes of both pine and citrus.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice copper color with fizzy head. Aroma of mainly fruit/earthy/caramel tones not so much citrus (nice change). Flavor is a nice bitterness but not overly so. Notes of fruit, pine, grapefruit. Mouthfeel is a solid bitterness and carbonation is average. Overall solidly great beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
As advertised, very hoppy, but not crazy hoppy. The aroma didn’t come off as an IPA, so the taste was surprising.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
