COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Morganton in Western North Carolina, today home of the Fonta Flora Brewery led by its creative mastermind Todd Boera, who gives emphasis to using local Appalachian ingredients in his beers whenever possible. Todds vision that fermentation is yet another medium for creating art is much more than just a phrase, its the actual ideology behind the brewery. However, what few people outside the US know, is that this area plays an important role in American history. 500 years ago it was a proud mainstay of several native American chiefdoms. Joara being one of them, neigbouring Cofitachequi being another. This beer is named after the mythical chieftainness The Lady of Cofitachequi who is believed to be one of few if not the only female native American rulers. Taken prisoner by invading Spanish conquistadores, on an insatiable hunt for gold, this proud lady managed to escape and rejoin with her people. The invaders built several forts in an attempt to control the area, only to see them all destroyed and burned down by local warriors months later. Only one out of 120 Spaniards is said to have survived. The defeat effectively ended all Spanish attempts to colonize the area. The Lady and her fellow chieftains were again rulers of their own land.

400 piwo na Ratebeer, przy okazji 50 ipa. Kran. W aromacie bardzo kwiatowo, lawendowo, jest też sporo karmelu. W smaku białe owoce, trochę cytrusw, kwiatowo i przede wszystkim karmelowo. Pijalność średnia. Solidna ipa o karmelowo - owocowo - kwiatowym profilu.

fernockibeer (63) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 2, 2017
Warka numer 1488. Wygląd - słomkowo złote, leciutko zamglone, z ładną białą, utrzymującą się, drobną pianą. Aromat - z butelki buchnął ładny chmielowy aromat z kwaśną nutą w tle. W szkle fajne rześkie cytrusy, trawy trochę ził. Smak - bardzo świeże, rześkie cytrusy na pierwszym planie, w tle soczysta trawiastość. Piwo jest dość wytrawne, bez karmelowej słodowości, z dość konkretną gorączką, trochę zalegającą, ale jest ok. Nasycenie średnie. Oglnie fajna, rześka west coast ipa, dość wykręcona.
