Draft at Charlotte airport. Poured a medium amber, slight haze, good head. Aroma was a hop bomb of citrus, and pine over caramel. Flavor matched, rather delightfully I might add. One really nicely done IPA. Hop bomb in the best possible way with the malt not shying away either.

Huge amarillo bong water nose. Crystal clear amber in the glass with some lacing. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice lightly sweet malt backbone. Lemony resiny hop character. Big long hoppy finish. A very fine American IPA.

This definitely lives up to the hype. It smashes all over the palette like Arkanoid on some kind of hyperdrive chaos setting. One of the better IPA cans I’ve ever had. Scored along with numerous other sick local beers from the incredible Brawleys in Charlotte, NC - who just installed some in-store taps, making them a truly essential stop-off.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint sized can. Aroma of fresh hops and earthy green, light resin. Flavor is grapefruit with green resin again, not overly bitter. Mid tropical but not a ton. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

Draught at the NoDa, Charlotte, NC.
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Piney and fruity aroma with moderate bitterness and some maltiness. Nice.
The flavour is strong bitterness, resiny and grapefruity hops and some herbal notes. Strong bitterness. The aftertaste is pure hoppy bitterness.

Poor is golden with some lace. Aromas of tropical fruits. Flavor is delicious. This IPA falls on the citrus side of the ipa style. It is very complex and flavorful. Each sip that will leave you wanting more!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can pours a copper/orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma is a nice sweet balance of caramel malt and floral and tropical hops, which are mildly resinous. Taste starts with a solid upfront bitterness smoothing into fruity hop and caramel sweetness. A well rounded and nice IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can with thanks to CarolinaKevin! Pours crystal clear orange with a medium beige creamy head that lasts a long time and laces well. Aroma is heavenly Citra, passionfruit, mango, a bit buttery, some dankness. Flavor follows, light plus sweet and light bitter, really well balanced and not harsh at all, juicy juicy juicy and a bit of sweaty dankness to tie it together. Medium oily body. This is one of the best single IPA’s on the market today, for sure.
