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. Todd’s vision that ”fermentation is yet another medium for creating art” is much more than just a phrase, it’s 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.

hman43 (1957) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2017
It is golden with a bit of haze to it. It has good head retention with a white head. The aromas are heavy in pine and floral hops. There is also a bit of resin in the nose. It is loaded with floral flavors and some pine. There is also a moderate amount of caramel flavor in support. In addition there is a low bread element. As it warms up, fruit flavors begin to make their presence known. It has a moderate body. It is highly bitter, but the malt does enough in the finish to balance it out. Overall, this is an excellent combination of floral and piney flavors with a great balance in the background with the caramela and bread.

orbit (374) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2017
A real citrussy and aromatic IPA, lots of floral hops and ingredients stick out here. The base seems resin, but floral overtones take over. Smartly balanced and easy to like. It's not eternal, but very good crafted beer.
