3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is okay. Kinda hoppy mostly cereal . I would not classify this as an IPA. NC breweries need to put together a decent IPA and stop fronting

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 12 ounce can purchased at The Veggie Wagon, Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Hazy orange/yellow color, large off white head that left good lacing, nice citrus/pine nose, scattershot bittersweet flavor that’s sweet, then somewhat watery, then hoppy, although it comes together better as the glass warms. The recipe could use a little adjusting but not bad as it is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Comes out of the can a hazy honey golden, barely transparent, with a very thick and rather persistent buff head. Aroma is typically hoppy for an IPA with a fruity underpinning. Hoppy flavor is slightly bitter, with a subtle fruity undertone, nothing special but still pleasing. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and not very fizzy. If only average, still palatable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz Can. The IPA poured a hazy golden color with a huge head. The foamy head lasted the duration of the beer with lacing down the glass. The nose was light maybe some light citrus. There is a chalkiness that is unexplainable. The carbonation was lively mostly at pouring. The ale has a medium body with the taste of grassy hops. The finish was bitter but not overly so. Very balanced ale, but no WOW!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours cloudy and gold with a moderate head to it. Very hoppy aroma that’s inviting. Fairly easy on the palate, which is nice. The taste isn’t as hoppy as the smell, but still decent.

Can. Orange pour with a huge over carbonated head. Light citrus nose with some caramel malt. Med body with citrus bitterness. Bright citrus finish with a smoked malt presence. Odd. Not really digging this one at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Glowing cloudy orange with a small fizzy white head. Nose is nice enough, fairly balanced, mainly grassy and herbal notes, some light citrus with big sweet caramel that turns kinda buttery as it warms a bit. Flavor is similarly buttery, grassy hops, caramel, bleh. The finish is bitter, bitter, bitter, butter. Poo.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Revolution, Durham. Handsome pour, gleaming light orange with a moderate cloudiness in the middle of the brew that gives it an earthy look, complemented by a nice thick two-finger head. Nose is softly floral, with a kiss of sweetness and some bitters. Nice thick mouthfeel, just a hint of chalkiness (strange for an IPA), and a real smoothness that I enjoyed. Flavors were fairly unassertive but nice and bright - good to have such a fresh pour of this clean brew, and a pleasant dry finish to boot.
