3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle purchased at Samís Quick Shop, Durham, NC. Pours light amber, with the thinnest of white head. Nice retention of lacing. Smell of hay and citrus. Effervescent mouth feel that slightly numbs the mouth and tongue. Hoppy flavor with lime on the back end. Nice beer,

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden with a big white head and great lacing. Grassy, earthy hops, grapefruit, orange, biscuit, and doughy aroma. Taste is big weed, ganja, bitter fruit peel, clean malt - straw, biscuit, and dough with a medium bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Decent fresh hop IPA.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at new belgium. Aroma is piney, and hoppy. Taste is hops, a bit soapy, not much citrus. Weird flavor profile, not sure it offsets the bitterness well

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 There is something really refreshing about this fresh hop IPA. The aroma is not over the top exciting, but the taste is very solid with lots of resiny, pine, grassy, dirty, faintly citrus, and juiciness. I especially like the finish that is somewhat smooth and faintly foamy in texture. A bit chewy...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ New Belgium. Pours a dark golden appearance with a white head and good lacing. Soapy herbal, somewhat spicy, grassy hoppy, a bit green aroma. Mild ganja, chewy herbal, floral flavor. The beer has really green hops which Iím not sure I like very much.
