Found this one bottled at Food Lion in Nads Head, North Carolina. A nice, sessionable pale ale overall. haukur (2073) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - JUN 2, 2011
now here is a nice session IPA. Medium bodied, strong floral aroma, nice hop bitterness which lingers in a long dry aftertaste. Good stuff from NC

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2011 Not quite as hoppy as I would like for an IPA. Decently bitter. Medium bodied. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2011
(12oz bottle, courtesy of Cavie) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, and grass. Flavor of caramel malt, earth, grapefruit, and pine with a dry, bitter finish. Cavie (4769) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle via trade. Light orange color with a light fizzy white head. Aroma of fruit and sweet malts with some bits of sweet hops that has a small amount of resiny notes. Flavor is dry bready notes with a sharp sweetness. Finishes a bit dry. bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Pours a tea hue into the glass, with a wispy silken head and lots of active carbonation bubbles rising through the liquid. The nose is of sweet dough, but not very prominent. Flavors are very bitter throughout, with a touch of tea and some English malt accents. Lingering pepper finish, with a seltzery mouthfeel. Substantive on the palate, a bit of an Impy ESB honestly, though. Needs a bit more malt and indicative floral and citrus notes to shine as a next-level IPA. spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Southern Season, bottle date 02/16/11
Ar: Citrusy aroma, as expected. Not quite as hop dominance on the nose as I expected.
Ap: Pours a hazy light orange with a full, creamy white head. Epic rings of lace. Really a good looking IPA.
T: Loads of hoppyness. Mild malt presence with a very bitter finish for a standard IPA. Slightly peppery, a touch of citrus.
P: Nice moderately carbonated body.
O: Pretty modest IPA. Hop flavors a bit different from what I’m used to, not that that’s a bad thing.
