3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy straw amber with a massive foamy white head that laces like mad. Aroma is jammy lemon-orange-floral citrus. Taste is quick to the piney hops and then flows into some rich orange-grapefruit citrus. Backbone is semi-sweet and the aftertaste is bitter. Very atypical but enjoyable and drinkable AIPA. Wish this were a regular from Natty G - it's one of their best.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle - pours a light gold, slightly hazy, with 2 cm frothy white head. Aroma is a mix of citrus and resin. Significant lacing and head is long lasting. Taste has some initial sweetness followed by crisp bitterness. The finish is medium long. This is a very refreshing and tasty beer. I like it a lot.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Piney, citrus. Good assertive hop aroma. Decidedly east coast in flavor, somehow. Some grapefruit. Good malt backbone, toast, light caramel, pretzel. Hazy amber / orange color, lots of sediment floating inside. Foamy off-white head, with great retention and good lace. Lighter carbonation, very dry texture. Soft overall. Earthy hops. Orange, stronger bitter taste, buzzes on the tongue. Aggressive, but I think I like that. Very interesting, enjoyable IPA to sip, big flavor for the ABV.
