On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. A friend of mine who I ran into tonight told me, "You MUST try this new beer out of Winston-Salem, itís great." So I ordered it, and Iíve gotta say, it truly was an excellent beer. Iím a big fan of I2PAís and this didnít disappoint - lots of bitterness, but itís also smooth and very easy to drink. Lots of citrus flavor to balance it out. I will definitely have this one again.

Pours clear copper with a copious creamy white head that slowly fades to a rim and coating. Aroma is caramel, vanilla and fruity orange jam. Taste is jammy citrus up front and a dry bitter finish and aftertaste. Some warming alcohol and caramel malt backing. Very drinkable DIPA with nice sweet/bitter balance. Very good.

Bottle at Ryan and Jodiís with friends. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and good lacing. Orange, tangerines, biscuit, pineapple, straw, light husk, and peaches in the aroma. Taste is oranges, light vanilla, mango, papaya, grassy, lemons, and dough with a light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent stuff.

Iphonephan (3015) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2014
From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear copper with a thick off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of citrus with some caramel notes. Bitter, but not over the top. Pleasant DIPA.

agl108 (765) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2014
22 oz. bomber. Faint, sweet nose. Poured burnt orange with creamy off white head. Sheets of lace. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, a touch earthy that finished bitter with a burst of grapefruit rinds. Medium bodied, a little chewy but smooth. Definitely not a fresh bottle but this has aged nicely.

GTAEgeek (1142) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared with Ian. Pours a light gold, with a medium, bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is caramel, light floral notes, and a lot of melon and citrus notes. Flavor is very sweet up front, but with a significant bitterness through the finish. Light to medium body, acidic, syrupy, and sticky. Overall, this is a very sweet and aromatic IIPA.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Gatlinburg. Tulip glass. A very hoppy beer. Nice finish. First taste really shocks the pallet with all those IBUs, but it has a nice smooth finish, and nice aroma. For a strong beer, it is easy to drink.
