3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Soft pale straw yellow pour with one finger of white head. Soft citrusy nose. Green and leafy hops with a slight onion component. Green in the flavor and a tad grassy. Strong bitterness/astringent. Very nice upfront but it becomes a little homebrew-ish.

Draft at 5 Church Restaurant in Charlotte, 11/19/14
This was a solid IPA. Not a total standout in the style, but it has a good citrus hop aroma and flavor. There’s a floral component as well. I much preferred this to the Baby Maker, and after one of those, drank these for the rest of the evening.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A resiny good piney American IPA. High alphas in here for sure. Juicy citrus throughout with a middling bitter finish. Nice solid light malt backbone with plenty of toffee gives the hops a firm foundation to work upon. Long fir tree finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: Draft at The King’s Kitchen. It pours a clear gold color. Strong hop nose with bits of mint and herbal notes. The flavor follows suit with plenty of hop goodness coming along. Smooth on the tongue with a light bit of bready malt in play with the hops leading to medium bitter finish. Nice little brew.

This is a good, solid IPA. Lot’s of huge citrus flavors like you’d expect... very nice example of what a West Coast IPA should be. It’s standard brewery fare at this point...but you shouldn’t pass it up.

bottle, from the Glass Jug, Durham. good aroma, sweet, fruity. on the orange and grapefruit side of things. Light sweet honey malt streak. Clean golden orange color, small head, no much lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish that lingers. It’s good, just feel like it comes up short to be great, aroma is good, nice fruitiness , flavor more bitter, not as interesting, nothing special to look at. I dunno, just not making want another.
