22oz. Bottle: Got in trade from Phaleslu; THANKS Peter! Aroma of hops, pine, resin, hop oil, light grass, citrus, and light malt. Poured amber/orange in color with a medium-sized, creamy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Clear. Sparkling. Fair lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, resin, hop oil, caramel malt, light grass. Medium body. Oily, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Caramel malt, hop, pine, resin, finish is medium to heavily bitter, medium sweet, and dry. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Flowery and grassy hoppy aroma. The flavor has floral and piney hops, with some light malty sweetness. Pretty good. jhliesen (833) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bomber--wow! How did I miss this beer before? Pours with a totally charming, large frothy that dissipates but leaves plenty of lacing. The color was a golden orange with a decent amount of carbonation. A really strong and fresh aroma of grapefruit hits the nose. The taste is sweeter than most IPAs I have come across with the citrus taste dominated. A nice smooth finish that wasn’t lip smacking at all. Love it.

Drank all weekend while in Charlotte. Pretty clear orange pour with a decent head. Lots of lace. Nice hoppy, floral nose with nice notes of citrus and pine. Flavors followed suit with bits of orange, bitter grapefruit and some peach. Nothing over the top, balanced. Finished with a dry lingering bitterness. Great, drinkable IPA from NC.

Draft-Growler. Pours a nice amber ale color with a decent head which dissipates quickly. Nose is very nice, smells of sweet and bitter hops, floral as well. Taste is very pleasant. Notes of sweet hops, bitter but not as much as most IPA’s, and a nice caramel malt finish which balances this beer fantastically. Very good beer, could drink a lot of these

From sampler flight at Foothills. Mmmmm ... Intensely bitter and hoppy very clear and clean. An awesome IPA. johnnnniee (4405) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Received in trade from VncentLIFE, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a decent white head that shows moderate retention with a fair amount of sticky lace. Smells of pine and bread with hints of citrus. Smells like an IPA should clean with a bit of dankiness. Taste is a mix of bread and caramel malt offset with some pine and citrus to remind you there are some hops in this one. Medium body with a dry finish, moderate level of carbonation with a slick resinous mouthfeel. Decent IPA, I really enjoyed it, but seems a bit on the mild side of "India" Clean flavorful brew. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Draft. Good IPA overall. Floral and pine aroma. Clean bitter finish, tasteful, no major problems. I enjoyed and would recommend.
