3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Flying Saucer in Raleigh. Very clear orange pour with a string of head around the edge. Floral hoppy aroma comes through nicely. Lots of grapefruit and other citrus notes coming through in the aroma and flavor. Lightly grassy and spicy as well. Hop dominant, but lightly balanced by caramel malt. Quite tasty and one that I will order often!
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Aromas of hops and citrus. Tastes the same with a bitter finish. Light palate. Very typical IPA. But this one is very well done. fooj (46) - Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2017
I hate that I am forced to write a comment, when all I want to do is rate the beer for my own reference. What happened to not having to integrate with ratebeer.com?

Resin hop profile with a bit of sourness in the finish accompanied by bready malts. SanfordBrewer (1585) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Brilliant orange with a creamy white head. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.cheap (5958) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2017
Aroma: pine and citrus hops with the distinctive back fruit notes of simcoe, grainy coop malt.
Taste: assertive mineral sharpness that has a bitter and drying lingering finish, bready malt, citrus rind hops.
Nice quality bottle label. Wasn’t careful, pop lid for a gusher, heheheh. Nice big rocky head fer sher. Somewhat cloudy and uncivilized looken. What else can be said except that this is one big fat nasty nellie terribly on style IPA with a tad of astringentness attached. Big dull whack in the palate.

Small off white head with fair retention, no lace. Lightly hazy coper hued ale. Mild nose, citrus, light grain. Body is light with a sufficient carbo level. Dry malts, citrusy hops, light pine and a touch fruity. Fairly dry finish with a tame bite. Fairly middlin. 12oz,ers from some grocery store in S.C.

Grabbed in a pick-your-own mixpack at Publix during recent Myrtle Beach visit. Not as hoppy as expected, based on the 78 IBU printed on the label. Leans toward the sweet side...balance could be better. Has potential, but not quite living up to it’s name. malvrich (334) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2017
3 month old bottle > Shaker.
A: Poured to a short, quickly falling head atop dirty orange body.
S: Light citrus and pine scent with faint sour cherry and caramel.
T: Very bitter with citrus and pith. Heavy grapefruit and pine. Light toasted bread and caramel sweetness. Nice balance.
M: Medium body with low carbonation. Tastes resinous but feels clean going down. Refreshing and drinkable.
O: A N.C. IPA mainstay. Very good overall and widely available at a nice price. VastActiv (7390) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Tap at Darryl’, Greensboro. Colour is slightly cloudy orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, citrus, hops and malts. Pretty nice. oobawa (1575) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Nice old-school West Coast IPA, less concerned with citric niceties than with brutal bitterness. Caramel-grainy malts hint at a lingering sweet side but quickly give up the IBU fight, leading to a resinous, clingy fade. Tasty.
