A Western North Carolina take on the West Coast style IPA. Huge citrus hop aromas make this a Hop Headís dream. Its full body balances well with the bitterness and allows the drinker to enjoy its depth of hop flavors and aromas.

12 oz bottle into a lager glass. Apparent BB date on the bottom of May 2016. Pours with a deep amber body that appears to have ample carbonation. The small but durable bone-colored head leaves plenty of sticky lacing on the glass. Citrus and herbal hop aromas precede the very fruity (citrus) flavor. Moderate bitterness is below average for American IPAs. O: an excellent IPA, at least for those who like the fruity hop varieties and limited bitterness.

GSH1976 (238) - Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Picked up a bottle of this at Chipís in Kill Devil Kills while on vacation. Pours a orange/copper with little head and a cloudy appearance due to lots of floaties as the result of being unfiltered. Aroma is citrus with hints of caramel malt. Taste is rather bland with a slightly bitter finish that does not linger. This beer is tame compared to many other IPAs but very drinkable. It seems more like a pale ale than IPA and someone expecting a strong hop presence typical of the style may be disappointed.

Bottle from trio. Pours clear Amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma has plenty of grapefruit, some spicy, earthy hop presence, a bit of caramel. The taste has a good bit of grapefruit citrus, medium bitterness, but a touch of short duration of flavor.

12 oz. looks to be bottled May 19, 2015. Pours mostly clear orange-copper with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is peppery grapefruit zest, resin, soap, mineral and a touch of caramel. Flavors of toast, mineral water, green herb, resin, grapefruit, ash, metal and toffee. Big muddle, but not awful. Light-medium body borders on too much fizz.

Itís an OK beer, with a weirdly strong early palette that fades out quickly. Iíd put this one in the middle of the pack.

Pours a deep brownish orange hue with a one finger, off white head. Pine and yeast on the nose. Orange, Brown sugar, tangerine, yeast, sharp bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Decent ipa but muddled and all over the place on the back end.

Mep3222 (987) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Floral and piney hoppy aroma with unfiltered roasted malty taste. Hops balance nicely the good amount of roasted malt. Unfiltered and has a hazy malt taste. Bitter piney finish, but subdued. It is different, and the unfiltered makes it a bit odd, but it is enjoyable. Almost a caramel maltiness and get some orange citrus to the hops as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
