An owner-described "chill dude", Bentley loves kicking back and cruising around the lake- the perfect canine metaphor for our breezy May IPA, full of Citra and Sorachi Ace hops, complemented by grapefruit and clementine orange essence. An ideal beer for Bentley and his boat.

22 oz bottle for 3 bucks at Triangle Wine. Drank from the bottle. Huge citrus hops, malty, bitter. Not a complex or unique IPA but pretty good.

22 ounce bottle, provided by a rather large french Frey .. . Light gold, foam is just terrific.. The two hops play beautifully off each other - really a class act if a brew ..even though it has a ugly dog on the label .. . . Why name a car wreck after a steak. T bones are great!

It pours and looks like grapefruit juice. It has a strong citrus aroma with oranges and grapefruit. It has a high bit of carbonation with dominate hop flavors dominated by grapefruit with orange undertones. It has a strong bitter kick on the palate.

Pretty pour, light pale straw blonde with a serious haze and two fingers of white head. Very nice nose, lots of citrus rind, heady hops, and grassy notes. Nice flavor, lots of citrus with mandarin orange, zest, and grassy hops. Light bodied and dry

On tap at the Foothills Tasting Room. Pours a cloudy matte yellow with medium white head. Aroma is lemon-lime heavy, perfume, and some nice wheat quality. Flavor is delightfully light of wheat and lemon rind, nice spruce sting and grapefruit juiciness. Clean and crisp. Light body with enough of a wheat like quality to add some depth. This is how I like my IPAs!
