Can: pours a nice orange color with a smallish white head. Aromas are sweet citrus fruit. There is a nice wheaty backbone to it that balances the bitterness out superbly.

16oz can shared. Pours a hazy deep orange color with fluffy white head. The aroma citrus hops and hops and hops. Yes you get the malt in there but this a hop forward beer. The flavor is not as bitter as you think. Solid malt backbone laced with hops and hops. Really good flavor and not jumbled like some can be. Overall great job.

Big can. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of citrusy and resinous and floral hops plus some caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. A good IPA.

Crisp and very citrusy with grapefruit the most predominant. An excellent American IPA, one of the top 3 brewed in NC.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, bonus of a trade. The pourís hazy deep amber with a small white head. The nose is pretty agressive. Hints of onion, pine needle. Burning pacific northwest coastline. Rock pools. Some caramel. The taste isnít entirely pleasant. Abrasive white onion. Mild citrus fruit meat. Stinging bitterness on the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall, maybe a bad can? This was nothing special. Subpar, in fact.

Thanks Lance! Clear deep golden pour with a bubbly white head. Tropical citrus aroma, peaches, pineapple, tangerine with a solid malt backing. Juicy Amarillo hop flavor with more tropical citrus and strong lingering bitterness. Solid stuff.

16 ounce can
This was a very nice East Coast style IPA compliments of a local swap. Not only did it put NoDa on my radar but it also renewed my interest in a style that was becoming predictable.
Aroma / Appearance - Caramelly opaque head is smothered under a stiff vanilla head. Polished pennies, bright resin, old straw, and mulching grass lend an earthy southern feel.
Flavor / Palate - Peaches, rose hips, and bitter honey tickle then perk up the taste buds. A lingering finish hangs around like the ghost of old holidays. Pleasing and bright it merits the attention of anybody who thinks they have pinned down the definitive example of an IPA.
