Draft at Thirsty Monk. Big bloody orange fruit tones, but balanced behind the toasty malt Bigtime island fruit action, pungent. Still balanced. A really solid beer. bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Brewgrass 2012 - pours a murky orange-brown into the glass, with a sudsy head that reduces to ring lace. The nose is indeed of mango, with a light pine resin. Flavors follow suit, with a mango/orange/grapefruit (muddy) citrus essence, followed by a piney hop close to the pull. The lightly resinous body complements the rest of the brew's aspects. Relatively well integrated, this is a nice session offering on the complex IPA style offering.

Tap at Carrboro bev. Peachy amber pour with one finger of creamy off white head. Nose is meh, lightly fruity with some hops coming through. Nothing really distinguishable. Lasting bitterness in the flavor with some citrus rind. Mango barely comes through. Slightly piney. Medium bodied. TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Tap at Carrboro Beverage. Hazy orange golden with small white head. Nose is grainy and sweet, light floral hops. Similar flavor-dominated by sweeter cereal grains and a lightly bitter finish. hope it’s better at the brewery. IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2012
2012 American craft beer week release. Burnt golden copper cloudy pour. Zero head. Little lacing on glass. Taste is dry hops with faint sweetness. Aftertaste is bitter and somewhat unpleasant. Fruit and lots of floral at the start and a bitter tap water finish. Its not awful but didn’t strike a chord with me.
