3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orage pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is overly grainy with some hops on the backend. I was expecting something a little more hoppy. Im hoping this one will be more dialed in but, as it stands its kind of bland.
Amazing especially for a "session."' Darker than any session I've had before. Citrus hop aroma perfect for a summer day.

Pint at Ruckus Pizza Morrisville. Ok aroma. Sweet. Minor citrus, woody. Clean golden orange color, good head and lace. Moderately bitter lightly sweet flavor. Light body, thin creamy mouthfeel, fairly bitter lightly sweet finish. Wanted to like this more, but it’s a kind of run of the mill pale/ IPA type beer.

Can. Slightly hazy golden color, small white head. Very fruity aroma. Taste is bitter straw and fruit, dry finish. Lutz2jm (277) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Super fresh can only bottled two days ago. Very nice nose that is on the tropical side of the hops. Taste is very smooth and much like the nose. A great session IPA! malvrich (322) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 Super fresh can (stamped 9/20/16). Tulip glass.
A: Deep dark orange color poured hard to only a short beige head. Poor retention but good lace.
S: Resinous and sweet pine, spruce and tangerine. Light but dense rustic smell.
T: Orange peel face slap. Bitter zest and pith with pine and puckering tart juice filling out the finish. Malts perceived as light toast or wood.
M: Crisp carbonation cuts through a resinous mouthfeel. Substantial body for 4.9%.
O: Must say I’m impressed. Nice complexity/development of aroma/flavor. A tad more malt sweetness would really set it off but overall highly recommended as is.

Tap at the brewery. The look is mostly clear, golden in color, off white head. The smell is melon, watermelon candy, fruit, hops, light. The taste is crisp, same melon fruit flavors. jrob21 (3688) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Sample at the source. Damn nice hop presence. Little bitter. Little fruity. Mango pineapple and grapefruit bitter finish. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Draft at source - pours orange white head - nose/taste of orange peel, grassy citrus and caramel malt - medium body emacgee (4675) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Golden pour with an orange tint and one finger of off white head. Pretty middle if the road and balanced. Nose shows a nice sweetness and fruity note. Starting to get a bit of the IPA. Citrus rind and some woody notes. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 7, 2017 Draft from the brewery. Pours a dark amber with a generous white head. Nose shows fruity bubblegum and wood in addition to the citrus and hops. A maltier APA, but not just sweet. Well balanced and wonderful bitterness. Slightly prickly palate enhances the bitter finish.
