Nice IPA. This is a well rounded beer with a pleasant flowery aroma, a cloudy appearance with a thin head. The flavor is nice and hoppy but remains a good session beer.

One inch white head on a copy pour. Some lacing but head becomes thin ring quickly. Citrus and pine hops w/ some spice...lemon/grapefruit. Crisp w/ medium body. Solid IPA that’s well balanced.

On tap at Starr Hill. Hazy amber with a thin head. Aroma was faint tea and floral hops. Taste was the same with a bit of pine and bitterness.

I really like this IPA. Nice hop balance that is not in your face and comes across very creamy and smooth for an IPA. extremely drinkable. This IPA is worthy of a 90 percent rating easily.In todays hop in your face world of IPAs this is a refreshing treat from the market of over the top hoppy brews.

Cask. A lovely IPA true to its name. Pours a lively and somewhat coarse head with a hazy and golden amber body. Reeks of hops. Nicely balanced with malt though. As my drinking buddy noted: "beer as it must have been in the 1700s." Not overabundant but not shy. British in texture but not in the bite... American in IBUs but not in strength. Simply a great session brew.

A tasty IPA, easily Starr Hill’s best offering. Had it fresh at the brewery complete with magic tricks from the taste master. Pretty classy. Tastes of mild hops and crisp refreshment. Stinks....in a good way.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Don’t know why or when they started using wheat malt in all their beers. Wasn’t bad in ’10, but I think its changed now. Maybe just me.

Purchased at Winslow’s Tavern, Greenville, NC
No head whatsoever. Decent flavor but was flat. Disappointed - made me feel like I had a bad bottle (it was a twist top).
