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 you’ve ever experienced.

jrob21 (3163) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2009
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.

SpringsLicker (3319) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Brewgrass 2009 Nitro 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.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Nitro tap at the Liberty Taproom in Myrtle Beach. Large creamy head over a clear orange body. Thick bands of lace after each swallow help make this a beautiful pour, courtesy of the nitro tap. Pleasing aroma with bits of citrus and pine, and a nice floral character as well. hints of honey and caramel round out the aroma. Medium body, gentle carbonation, mildly resinous palate. Honey like flavors up front, with the hoppy character coming on mid palate. Finishes with a nice crisp bitterness. A refreshing IPA, good balance, not overly assertive, but a solid performer.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2009
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.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2008
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 (4486) - 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 I’ll 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.
