COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers of New South twist tradition a bit with this uncommon ale. With its pleasant bitterness, sturdy alcohol content and intense hop aromas. This unfiltered copper colored ale is everything an I PA should be. With its dense head and creamy smoothness it is quite unlike any taste youíve ever experienced.

Draft. Frosty, lemon copper color. Frothy 1 1/2" head with slow dissipation. Hoppy, butter, light hint of bread, grains. Watery delivery slides off tongue, like the flavoring is running away. Boo, I say. Boo.

Sampled at Brewgrass 2008. On nitro. Yellow onion skin pour with a frothy head. Light caramel aroma with a touch of spicy hops. Very light. Very drinkable though. I’d go so far as to say an extremely easy drinking IPA with well balanced hops (earthy and citrus) as well as superb grain balance. Very smooth and creamy mouth feel (nitro?). While not a classic IPA, this has sessionable written all over it. You could drink this all day.

emacgee (3957) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2008
Got a sample of this at the WBF. Brewer said it was a nitro IPA. Poured and felt that way so Iíll believe him. Pours a copper amber with a creamy offwhite head. The nose was sweet, citrusy, resinous hops. Nice nose. The flavor is a step down though, a bit waxy, subdued flavor, bad aftertaste. The mouthfeel is very creamy.

Nitro. Pour out a golden yellow color with a huge head. Aroma is grassy and somewhat hoppy. Flavor is very much the same and it seemed a little flat to me.

@ Tylerís taproom Durham 5/31/06. Nitro pour. Ok nose, soft citrus. Clean orangy copper color, Big head and good lace with the nitro. Bitter flavor, grapefruit mainly with that nitro thing. Medium body, thin creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Donít know why youíd do an IPA nitro, but not bad

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2006
Nice appearance as a result fo the nitro tap. Very creamy head, as expected Aroma is lacking the typical hoppiness of an IPA. Flavor is only average. There are plenty of citrus and flowers, but could have more hops added. Served waaaay too cold, but tasted better as it warmed up.
