3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper with a small head that leaves tons of lacing. Nice aroma of busy malt and pine, citrus, and dirty English hops. Sweet, complex malty start leads to a ton of bitterness. Nice, unusual ipa.

Pours redish brown with frothy white head. The aroma is malty, citrus, sweetness, earthy. The flavor is caramel with biscuit, earthy, small grass in the back. Palate is thicker than I like, but dry. Overall kinda a mix between English and American pale/ipa.

Nope. Should be an English IPA category if there’s an English vs American pale, no? Anywway, did NOT like this one at all. Carboardy malts, spice and earth. Bitterness is abrupt at the finish. Least favorite NC beer?

Aromas of sweet corn breakfast cereal, honey, earthy hops are kind of subtle for an IPA. Clear, burnished gold with a lasting white head. Mostly dry, pretty bitter, nice malt backbone. Medium bodied.

Pours an amber from a bottle, soapy and bitter hops. Kind of thin and watery. Meh.

Not good, too malty. Not impressed with this brewery. Need to find another from then to try. They like the malts.
