COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Still undiscovered by scientists but thought to be true in some circles, THE VEHOPCIRAPTOR was a terrifying beast that roamed free millions of years ago, wreaking havoc on local natives and their tastebuds. It would use its large claws and aromatic bite to strike swiftly and efficiently. Some believers say it is strange, since the creature would only target its prey’s nose and tongue. We have attempted to CAPTURE THE SPIRIT of this majestic beast in a bottle. With 7 hop varieties and 9 additions, this reptile has a serious bite. Enjoy and THEN RUN LIKE HELL!

Draft at the source. Clear deep amber color, medium white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Taste is bittersweet fruit. Tasty.

Cybercat (6213) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Pours clear coppery with a very thick and persistent creamy buff head. Aroma presents a good, if not strong, hop note - not much else. Flavor features a hoppy note that is equally woody and resiny and shows off some bitterness. Citrus and subtle malty tones round out the flavor. Mouthfeel has OK body and mediocre but persistent fizz. Well, I am afraid that the spirit of this beast is on the tame side - but it is still drinkable and enjoyable.

UNCCTF (588) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2015
22 oz. bottle. The high school I teach at has the velociraptor as its mascot, so I had to give this a shot when I found it. Really fruity aroma and flavor with some good hop. You can taste the alcohol but it’s not overbearing like it is in a lot of DIPAs. I’m a fan; I’ll have to pick some more up on my next trip to the 704.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2014
On tap at Maxwells. Dark red color with a tan head. Fruity, malty nose with a decent amount of hops. Taste is smooth, fair alcohol burn, slippery if that makes sense, some and bitterness. Not a bad beer, kind of an unrefined offering, but all in all, pretty good stuff. Seen the bottle too, pretty cool bottle design.
