The aroma is sweet and malty with plenty of caramel it is also hoppy with pine and herbal hops. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma being hoppy but not bitter. The palate is smooth. Overall a great IPA.

Pours a dark amber with a tall, long lasting, off-white head. Lots of chunks from the bottom of the bottle. Yeast? Mild grapefruit hop aroma along with some malt. The flavor is lightly bitter with a medium light mouth feel.

crazyvin (1859) - New York, USA - OCT 5, 2011
A nice amber body with a thin white head that had good retention and good lace. Aroma had nice caramel malts and hops were a mix of mild grapefruit and a nice assertive pine note, Flavor had great balance between the sweetness of the malts and a great hop bite that balanced it out perfectly. There was some warmth from the alcohol. A nice smooth finish.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours an orangey-brown with a thin off-white head and almost no lacing. Aroma is mostly pine and yeast with a bit of citrus. Flavor is not what I anticipated - a bit of sour citrus hops (but not as much as it needs), some yeast and a grassy aftertaste. Not a particularly good IPA.

ChristianBlack (25) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2011
From notes: Picked up a 22oz bottle last night and it poured a slightly orange color with a thin white head clinging to the edges and sides of the glass. The aroma was citrusy with a malty sweetness.The taste is grapefruit with a moderate bitterness in the finish. The malt flavors are highlighted with sweet, slight caramel flavor overall. It slightly overwhelms the hop character I look for.The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. This is a weak hop IPA.

Sweet pine flavor and aroma, with some alcohol and honey in the finish. Even sweeter as it warms. Moderately drinkable, but not great.

emacgee (3875) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Pours cloudy dark amber with one finger sandstone head. nose is citrusy and hoppy with notes of peanut hull and pine. Similar flavor, piney with lots of peanut shell. Lasting bitterness and too much body. Needs to clean up a little.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle shared by Tim from The Bottle Dispensary. Pours rich copper-orange with foamy but small white head. Nose is resiny, citrusy hops and a decent amount of sweet hops. Not as much citrus and tropical fruits as I hoped for. Taste comes through bracingly bitter. Pretty average.

22 ounce thanks to Seth. Little head. Flat malt bill. A bit underwhelming for the style. Maybe not very fresh either.
