2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap flight. Light amber color with a very dense white head that wont budge. Flowery hop nose. Taste is similar with a little bit of a bitter bite. Extremely thin, though. Almost no mid flavor or presence on the palate. Looks good but that’s about it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light brown, hazy, towards copper. Creamy white head. Not much of a nose, hint of cooking wort. Same in palate to start, then fruity. Malty sour, a bit of hoppiness at end. Different but not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Liberty Taproom and Grill - Poured a pretty orange-amber in color with a medium off white head that produced some minor lacing on the glass. Aroma is of both floral and citrus hops. Flavor is medium hoppy with some maltiness in the background. Finish is lingering and medium bitter. A decent IPA...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at TBonz, on nitro. Pours copper with a nice cascade of bubbles and a tight, creamy nitro head. The aroma is grapefruit, some sawn lumber, and a touch of earthiness. The flavor is mild grapefruity hops, some honey and raisin sweetness. A woody bitterness comes across in the finish. I was a little worried about this, as I like my IPAs bubbly, but the nitro worked out better than I expected. Smooth and actually tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[August 30, 2010]
Pint at Liberty in Mt. Pleasant. Nitrogen IPA. What a terrible idea, though New South has somehow managed to pull it off well enough, considering. It is really weird to see a beer this color come out of the nitro tap and cascade down into an evenly shaped body with a creamy head. It’s like an orange Guinness. I can still get some hops in the modest aroma with some grass and wood. This is an expectedly smooth and inoffensive beer but not as bland as I feared. A bit of bite comes out here and there. Definitely a very different idea and makes for an alright session.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Old BA rate - nitro tap)
Light orangey, clear color; poured with a generous finger of pure white frothy cap of a head. Citrus-like hop aromas; hint of minerals; lightish malts. Lightly hoppy, even for the style it’s pretty tame; citric hop nature; rather middle of the road. Creamy and with soft carbonation (courtesy of the nitro tap), lightish and pleasing enough. Really a fairly bland IPA, and I wonder if this would have done better without the nitro.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at charlotte octoberfest 2009. Nitro tap serving makes you wait a little while until you get to drink it. Unfortunately there is not much waiting for you at the end. A relatively flat and unassuming ipa. A little hint of pine and a bit of a buttery/creamy texture.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light gold with a lasting off-white head.
Very light floral hop aroma.
Bitter with too little malt balance.
Neds a bit more malt and a lot more hops to balance this out.
