Went to WBF yesterday and had this new brewery’s IIPA Sister’s of the Moon. I have to say I was blown away with how good it is. The 2 girls pouring were not bad either. After tasting all of the NC breweries IPA’s I have to say this was my favorite.

Such a drinkable IPA! There is all the hops you need and a nice balance with the malts too. The hops bitterness is occasionally a little metalic, but mostly its just a firm earthiness. Fairly clean taste.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2010 Bottle. Woo hoo!! I’ve finally found a truly great IPA being bottled in NC. Why did it take so long for someone to make this?? Juicy nose of fresh cut grass, excellent sticky bitterness upfront with a bit of a peppery finish. This one’s right up there with the best (non-double) IPAs available. Is it perfect? Eh...not quite...the finish lingers with a bit too much abrasion than I’d like, but it’s still wonderful stuff that I’ll keep in my fridge as often as I can afford. All I ask, Mother Earth, is you drop the price. This bitter sweet nectar ain’t cheap. (Rerating to note that a newer bottling doesn’t have quite the abrasive finish, though still not perfect, and the price has dropped. Well played, sir.)

On tap at Winslow’s in Greenville, NC. Truthfully I really wanted to like this beer but did not expect to. I must admit I was pleasantly shocked; it’s a really good IPA. Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. Powerful citrus and piney hop aroma. Bitter floral hop flavor. Lingering bitter hoppiness on the palate. This is really a very good IPA. I hope this brewery does well with this one.

THOUGHTS: Nice. Very well balanced. Nice and intense transition from sweet to bitter. Became a little too sweet part of the way into it, but still enjoyable. It was sort of like the flavor profile of a Double IPA in the body and ABV of a regular IPA. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light, orange with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma wasn’t bad, but it was very weak. There was very light caramel; moderate, pine and citrus hops, but mostly orange hops; along with slight honey. There was also some apricot with first poured. The initial flavor was sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was heavily to almost harshly sweet and rather to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was marmalade, sugar water, caramel malt, grapefruit hops, orange hops, other citrus hops, a little pine hops, apricot, ever so slight cream (in an orange creamsicle sort of way) and a tiny bit of toast, too. The medium body was slightly syrupy with lightly fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

Pours straw colored, slightly hazy, medium white head. Aroma is floral, citrus. Flavor is quite hoppy, lots of citrus, pepper, pine, and grass, with toasted malts and some caramel. Lovely malty finish. I like this beer.

thanks to spence for this freshie! pours nice, slightly hazy, nice head of about 2-3mm all the way down, very nice. great aroma that is more complex that it first appears. deep and earthy, slight deep floral tones like essential oils. nice palate, slightly drying and bitter. overall a very nice ipa that i would love to have as a local.
