Bottle at random North Carolina bar. Grapefruit hop aroma, slight caramel malt as well. Flavor matches. Maybe not spectacular, but a pleasant bitterness, and the hop profile was pleasant, with some tropical notes mixing in as well. Nice.

Snagged a bottle from a trade. Pours a bright orange color with a very long lasting white head. Leaves a spotty nice lacing. A very tingly hop grapefruit nose. A pleasant cool pine flavor right up front. A very bitter hop character with a nice soft feel. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out an amberish hue, with a white head. Lots of pineapple and citrus on the nose, taste has a nice sweet malt up front and finishes dry with a mildly bitter note of pine and citrus. The flavour has a flowery and light citric hops, light sweetness, and a grassy finish. Decent enough, overall not bad.

Clear orange, with a thin sheet of white foam. Grainy, roasty aroma. Flavor is pine or spruce, with some citrus, and goo deal of caramel. Pretty tasty...

12oz bottle from Lowes in Hickory. Wet hop, weed aroma. Tastes are herbal, toffee, sweet malt, background citrus. Lightly bitter. Strangely not a typical American ipa, but grew on me. 7.0

12oz bottle, blue label (F). Pale yellow color, slight haze. Aroma of citrus hops. Flavor is a very sharp bitterness. Heavy fizz, big bubbles, over-carbonated; could be an old bottle. (3924)

Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, caramel, light lemon peel, and floral notes. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with citrus, fruit, and caramel, The finish has mild citrus hops, grass, and a touch of floral notes. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat mouthfeel. Overall, too much caramel and not enough hops for my IPA preferences.

Really didnt enjoy this IPA it has a strange hop palate and was not sticky or smooth, just kind of flat all around.
