COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This balanced IPA is a blend of English and American styles - the light sweetness, low alcohol, and easy body of an English IPA with the big robust citrus splash of American hops.

On draft at trio’s in kill devil hills it is a murky amber color with a slight head. The aroma is of citrus and the taste is very hoppy with strong bitter citrus overtones that lingers on the palate.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
A dark amber ipa with a thin mocha head. In aroma, smooth caramel malt with grassy hops, lightly floral. In mouth, caramel malt with loads of roasted character character, to the point of being bilous, grassy hops, grapefruit pulp, astringent.

jsquire (3499) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Amber beer with a foamy off white heed. Light citrus hop nose. Strong grapefruit rind taste with some pine notes and something earthy. Strong English influence but with lots of hops.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Draft sample at the 9th Annual Summertime Brews Festival, Greensboro, 7/13/13. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sweet caramel, almost diacetyl, very mild hops. The taste is bitter resin hops and toffee malts. Medium bodied.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2013
On tap at World of Beer, Raleigh. Did I even drink this? Totally forgettable, sweet syrupy dark IPA with moderate bitters but mostly overdone floral sweetness. Earthy and malty, like an under-attenuated, homebrewed British IPA.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
emacgee (4046) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Soft pale amber pour with 1-2 fingers of fine tight creamy sandy tan head. Nose is nice, citrusy with some grapefruit rind, raw squash flesh. Moderate bitterness, flavor kind of defaults to that peanut hull centennial character. Light grain husk character and piney bite. Spicy with lite alcohol.

3.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
OldGrowth (2699) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Growler, from the beer dispensary Apex. Ok aroma, sweet.. malty, grassy, little citrus, on the orange side. Tad hazed brownish orange. Not much head, no lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Good. Bit of a yeasty nutty streak as it warmed. Overall , might be my favorite from Mystery. The neck collar doesn’t match the description here on RB. Neck collar calls it a big west coast ipa, much more like description above, maybe that’s the mystery...

Overall impression of this was: meh. I was excited to try something "normal" from this brewery. They do a lot of creative things with unusual ingredients, and everything I read on this was that it more or less was created to style. It was hoppy, and a bit earthy. Nothing about it blew me out of the water but it was not bad by any means.
