Poured from the bottle. Color is a golden yellow with nice white head. Aroma is malty sweet with a balance of piney, grassy hops. Flavor is balanced between the sweetness and earthy hops. Best of the NC IPAs i have had yet.

CelticBrew (751) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2014
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.

Suttree (5042) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2014
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...

From 12 ounce bottle bought at The Veggie Wagon in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, tasted on August 16, 2013. Medium white .head, cloudy orange/yellow color, nice bittersweet nose with hop, citrus and other fruit, light to medium body, moderate bittersweet flavor with most of the hop bite at the end, fruit notes throughout. A bit unbalanced but good overall

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.

Draft sampler at RFD. Hazy creamy yellow with moderate white head. Sweet malt, grassy hops, citrus and grains. Out of balance, below par IPA.

Poured from a bottle. Hazy banana pour. Thin head but good retention. Faint unremarkable aroma. Very hoppy taste. A little dry.

A really sweet and hoppy ipa. Really bitter and smooth. Pours a light golden yellow. Really like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
