Surprised by the score on this one. It is easily one of my favorite IPAs in WNC. It is a west coast IPA in style and carries with it the expected hop aromas and flavors. Fresher is better obviously. What makes it so great thought is a fantastic malt balance that brings out the hops but doesn’t just play second fiddle like it is yellow seltzer water. It balances well. Drink this beer.

On tap at Native Kitchen. Suprised rating was so low- to me it’s a decent, crisp, light, summery, clean IPA. Pours hazy with an orange hue- not much head but still appealing. Taste is grapefruit up front with some pine, orange, and slight floral notes. Decent balance- not overly hoppy. Medium carbonation and slightly slick mouthfeel. Good. Solid.

West Coast IPA from NC. Not as tropical as many of the ones here in FL in this style. Semi-unfiltered light orange appearance. Aroma and flavor of citrus, pine, and bitter hops. Not quite a hop bomb, but very well-balanced. Smooth, light frothy texture. Will look for this again next time I am up that way.
