22 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange with almost a smaller hear. Aroma is nice sticky tropical fruits hops with some floral aspects and a honey sweetness. Flavor is sweet juicy fruits (mango, pineapple, grapefruit, orange). Not overly sweet, but massively bitter. This is in the top 5ish of all the IPAs I’ve had to date. This was just what an IPA should be. Delicious.
Tap, ADT. Clear golden orange with a sticky off-white head. Citrus and tropical fruit nose. Bitter hops flavors, oranges, lemon rind, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, caramel, resin. Medium body, zesty carb. Bitter citrus finish. Damn fine IPA. Cavie (4775) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2017 Bottle. Cloudy orange color. Bubbly white head. Dry hoppy nose. Malty backbone. Some light woody raisin notes. Flavor is dry hops, fairly bitter. Hop flavor dropped off, still bitter. Shag (3041) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Orange color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is quite malty slightly bitter. Some oranges and grapefruit. Earthy notes. Overall death by malt not hops but pretty good. DadofFenway (8) - Arden, North Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2017 does not count
This beer is an assault on the taste buds. A golden cloudy color, it gives the non hop head, the idea that something’s wrong with it. That couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a absolutely stellar IPA with every hop that a hop head would desire. The fact that it is somewhat unfiltered is nothing short of brilliant. Thanks Olde Hickory for this collaborative effort.

Bottle from Bombers Beverage Company, Wilmington, North Carolina. Golden with a thin head. Strong tasting with some stewed tropical fruitiness, but without much character, although it gets better in its aftertaste.

Sampled at Olde Hickory Brewery (Amos Howard's Brew Pub), pours a clear orange with some slightly off white head. Nose has pine, grass, soap, some orange, lemon. Flavor has potpourri, lemon, grass, orange zest. Finishes bitter but dry. Could be balanced with a bit more malt, but yet, that's likely the point!

It’s a hop soup. Vertical flavors and orange with some notes of faint chocolate at the very end. Pretty heavy handed and good. M4grem (89) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Pucker up butter cup!! Ya better like it bitter. Zero balance, but I think that's the idea.
