Bottle from Harris Teeter, Hampstead, North Carolina. Deep amber pale ale style beer with a small head. Has a fair strength with good tropical fruits behind this.

Brilliant golden copper with creamy beige head. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Aroma: candied orange rind, sweet bready caramel malt, fruity yeast.

Taste: stale coop grain, bready sweetness, citrus rind, odd and assertive minerally sourness, lingering unpleasant aftertaste.

Pours up a very pretty clear orange, with nice white head, and ample lacing. Aroma is mild caramel and citric hops. Flavor is the same, grapefruit, lightly earthy and a hint of floral. Well done.

Bot. We got to restyle this. From the start its ipa, no bones about it. I thought I smelled some dull hops in there but after the taste nothing else is apparent but its big ipa thud. So bitter, such impact. Terribly on style for an ipa and I think I had impy ipas that had this impact. Vixen viscous thick mouth coating flavors all round, whewwie. Gimmie a cheap lager to rinse my mouth. Cleansing agent please!! Not impressed.
