3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brixx Pizza in Asheville. This poured from a brand new keg as liquid murky caramel brown, with a frothy head that leaves thick lacing. The nose is of earth, silage and pine. The flavors are of caramel malt, light pine, a hint of copper and some woody hops. The finish is a semi-lingering bitter. The mouthfeel is nice and easily smooth. Not sure why the low ratings, as I found this to be quite tasty, easily drinkable and superbly integrated.

I always like finding a new local brew to try out and I ran across this limited release ipa brewed in Greensboro so I decided to give it a go, poured from the bottle into a pint glass , this ipa pours a very hazy golden amber, 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 on the back end, very well balanced and not overpowering at all for the style a great session beer a good one to break the ice when getting into ipa’s ...not bad

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy hazy orange. Citrus aroma. Not as hoppy as hoppyum. Keeps its white head. Not a bad IPA and worthy of having again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated at Brew Bern 2012. I thought this one was frustratingly non-hoppy for something that called itself an IPA. It wasn’t that bad of a drink, just not what I was looking for.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Tylers bottle shop in Raleigh. Dark orange with small white head. Nose of caramel, some citrus and pine. Flavor is similar. Pretty easy drinking and not terrible, maybe one of the better pales in NC but I’d need to have a bigger sample.
