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.

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.

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.

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.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2005
On tap at the Federal in Durham, NC. Pours an orangish color from a nitro tap with a thick white head. Fruity smell. Doesn’t really taste like an IPA, maybe an ESB? Still a nice enjoyable beer. I haven’t had many beers of this style with nitro infused.

riversideAK (6078) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Didn't think this was as bad as many on here. Balanced and drinkable, no flaws, not north east coast IPA or whatever but floral perfume light citrus toast nose with some caramel. Amber pour off white head creamy nice lave. Flavors of toast moderate caramel medium citrus and floral notes - probably not designer hops and all that but well made and understandably not over the top probably due to the clientele. Drinks easily.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Draught at Tbonz. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of light citrus, peppery. Tastes light and sessionable with some dry malt and an earthy finish.

On tap at Liberty Tap Room. A light amber brew with decent balance. Malty backbone. Pine and earth notes. Much better than its rating suggests.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Creamy large white head-from nitro tap. Hoppy and malty nose. Ligth body with strong bitter grass aftertaste. Needs a little more malt for a better balance.

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.
