Golden color with little to no white head. Aroma is light citrus hops. Flavor is slightly hoppy with a clean finish. Rated from a growler, remember it being a little more assertive at the brewery.

Tap - yellow color, white head. Huge hop nose, grass, grapefruits. Bitter, yet refreshing beer. I really liked it but if you are going for an IPA go for the hop burglar. Still, one of the best IPAs i have had from an NC brewer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is bright gold in color. It has good clarity and a nice white head. Bubbles swirl up readily even out of this stubby growler. Lots of lacing. Decent retention. The head dies down after a couple minutes, not bad for a beer above 8% abv. The aroma is full of sweet hop flavors. Thereís big citrus, tropical notes, some pine and a floral background. Fruit-wise, I get tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon, lime, mild grape and mild berry. Itís not as huge on the new, fancy hop flavors as some recent hoppy beers, but it excels in execution. The hops are expressed wonderfully with no off notes. Thereís light background sweetness from the malt that blends into the hop fruitiness. The taste is full of hop flavor with a perfect balance of sweetness and moderate bitterness. Starts off with floral/grape hoppiness and malt sweetness. Then, pineapple, tangerine and grapefruit take over, before a finish of pine, pepper and citrus rind. The feel is light and smooth. Normal carbonation, though again, itís a growler. It strongly reminds me of Pliny. The flavor and intensity of the hops is strong but itís still a very easy beer to like because everything is held in a very careful balance. Excellent stuff.

Pint on tap. Clear orange golden with a lasting spit of cream. Nose is dank green herb with touches of citrus, resin and caramel. Tastes of the same mix. Medium body has smooth medium carbonation and is definitely dry.
