UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Bottle, dajio, Ocracoke. a nice suprise- havenít been a huge fan of this brewery so far. Pours a light copper with a thin white somewhat wimpy-didnít quite come to the party- head. taste is all caramel and sweet at first followed by a decent hoppiness. something different in the hops here- good and makes one ponder. only issue with this one is the finish- not quite balanced- a bit bitter at the end. without the bitterness would have rated in the 4 range. good ipa- will have again. May 12/ 13. More bitter than I remember- served slightly warmer and bitterness in the first taste and on the finish. definitely prefer the hoppyum on tap at dajio to this offering. probably better paired with something assertive in the food department.

MadRobin (1830) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap at Cedars in Penn Quarter in Washington, DC. Hazy amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of malt, light fruit, caramel, floral hops and light citrus. Taste of caramel, intense floral hops, light fruit and mild citrus. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. I found this to be an odd IPA. It was very bitter, but without either the citrus/pine intensity nor a tropical fruit hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a big fan of this IPA. The bready malts and the metallic fruits were confusingly mingled. Tried this at the DC beerfest with Jess, Mark, and Matt in 2014.

Some citrus and some sweet malt but comes together with a tinge of acridness that puts me off. On tap at DC Summerfest.

A mild taste with a mild IPA flavor. Builds in the middle with a slight pine. Finishes with a lingering light hoppy taste when you inhale. Perfect when you want more than. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Kind of strange, but I can't put my finger on it. Not like other IPA's that I like, but overall, just ok... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. Tropical fruity, a bit woody, a bit papery aroma. A little twangy. Kind of dusty / cardboard-y flavor. Plenty of citrus. Moderate to high sweetness. High bitterness. Not in the best shape but Iím still not a huge fan.

A gift from a local for local trade, this was a very nice IPA with East Coast roots. While not my favorite example of the style it had a few signs of promise. If you are looking for the best this is not it. However if you want to compare how different regions interpret a ubiquitous style pick one up.

Aroma / Appearance - A frothing head creates a little concern before it begins to settle into a transparent bronze foundation. Rye, earthy grasses, lemon zest, and laid back summer breezes give this the air of a casual afternoon sitting on the porch.

Flavor / Palate - Rye, dusty floor polish, and sourdough emerge with an intent to leave a memorable mark on the palate. The bitter transition carries them towards a finish of crushed walnuts, crusty bread, and resin. Something about the whole experience feels a bit disjointed. With many potential highlights the overall result never comes together in a cohesive manner. Iím glad to have tried this one but in the future I think Iíll stick to other styles from Mother Earth.

firemarshal (144) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle into shaker. Very cloudy copper color. Aroma is malty caramel, floral and honey hops. Taste is malty up front, spicy in the middle and long bitter finish. Medium body, sticky, soft carbonation, long finish. Great example of a micro IPA.
