On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft hops on the nose, a hint of citrus. Medium bodied, spicy malt and a hint of rye, dusty and earthy. Long slow spicy rye and earthy bitterness on the finish.

Spicy piney hop aroma. Taste is malty with the rye spice, almost peppery, with a dry bitter finish. Well made and a fairly nice beer just not a huge rye IPA fan.

9/16/14. Bomber. Pours hazy orange with a nice sticky head that slowly dissipates. Light citrus nose. Strong hop profile on the dark heavy side. Doesn't build up in the mouth though.

Out of a bottle poured to a hazy orange color with a 1/2in white head. Complex flavor that gives you different hop tastes up front and at the back. Very good beer from a great NC brewery!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours orange with an inch of white foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Has a fair amount of rye on the nose. Some solid citrus notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but not amazing for style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from JCB. The pour is a muddy light brown color with a thin head on top. At first I did think of pond water but it’s more inviting than that. Rye is certainly noted in the scent right away along with grass, caramel, and resinous hops. Tastes good; definitely a pretty strong spiciness to this, as evident in the aroma. Dry and bitter in the finish. Lightly sweetened by some caramel malt but that’s trumped by the spicy bitterness. Citrusy hops with also some resin flavor too. This flirts with being too heavy, for a non-Double IPA, but never seems to get there. Good but not great.
