COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For us this is where it all started! The rich golden color comes from a blend of English and American base malts accented with substantial amounts of Victory and Wheat malt. The American citrus hops take center stage with emphasis on late boil additions of Citra and Amarillo. This signature ale is hopped before, during, and after the boil!

UNCCTF (587) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2012
On tap at VBGB in Charlotte. Orange color with a big white head. Lots of citrus in the nose and in the palate, with a great hop finish. I really liked this one.

Can. Pours a hazy orange body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is pithy and resiny hops with some heavy grapefruit over a caramel malt base. The flavor is rather bracingly bitter and sharp up front, with a slight harshness to the hops. The malt base shows a bit of sweetness, but it's pretty well in check due to the heavy handed hops. Not a big fan of this one, a little too brash and unrefined for me. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not a badly made beer, just not one for my tastes. 3/7/6/3/13

I nice sharp start that tells you your drinking an Indian Pale Ale. Fresh and hoppy makes for a drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (6478) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2017
Crisp copper coloured body with a nice two to three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright tropical fruits and resinous, dank hops along with some mild sugars, a pleasant malt backbone and some subdued herbal and grassy notes near the end. Medium-bodied; Assertive tropical fruits and resinous hops with a nice bitter bite near the beginning, showing some mild sugars, a light bit of grass and herbal flavours and finishing with a smooth and balanced malt backbone. Aftertaste shows more of the hop characteristics with a lot of passionfruit, guava and bitter resin flavours, but also some light sweetness and a dry grassy finish which balances this out quite well. Overall, a very well-balanced IPA that shows a hop-centric character with the tropical fruits and resinous qualities the strongest, but the balance is just right and the bitterness keeps going to the very end. Definitely worth trying to find if you like IPAs and live anywhere close to the south! I sampled this sixteen ounce, pint-sized can, purchased from GrapeVine in Fort Mill, South Carolina on 21-August-2017 after watching the eclipse in South Carolina for US$3,40 sampled at home in Washington on 05-October-2017. This can was made on 14-July-2017 with the hashtag #ShowYourCans. Canned: 14-July-2017 // Purchased: 21-August-2017 // Sampled: 05-October-2017

Draft at the source. Hazy golden orange with a sticky white head. Grapefruit, citrus rind, orange, pine trees, resin. Lots of bright hops with caramel malt. Medium bodied. Nice. Utter finish. Loaded with hops without being overly astringent. Excellent IPA. (notes, 2015)

Rating #2497 - 2016.05.04 - 2.5oz sample at BrewExpo during CBC. 7.2% - Clear, golden pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of sweet citrus, pine, grass whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitter IPA.

Pours golden yellow with a think head. Medium mixed hop taste that changes from soft to intense finish that lingers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
