Pretty gold straw color. Loosely laced head. Aroma is resiny hops. Big open hops. Floral notes. Piney with a bit of resin. Mouthfeel is moderately heavy. Hops and resin feel linger. Solid beer. silva6411 (59) - King, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Very good beer! Full of taste and aroma with a decent ABV I was surprised how smooth it is. I taste mango and other citrus fruits

Bottle from Harris Teeter, Hampstead, North Carolina. Amber with a carbonation and a bubbly head. Strong tasting but stated IPA with plenty of flavour. Has a fruitiness. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appeara ce is a clear golden amber with a large thick off-white head. The taste has a nice sharp hop bite. ACHops (1724) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2016
12 oz bottle, served in a pint glass. Pours clear dark golden amber with thin creamy white head. Aroma is light, slightly tangy sweet citrusy hops - pineapple, passionfruit. Taste is crisp, slightly oaky caramel malt, same kinda odd citrusy hops. This is tasty, and promising, but something isn’t quite right with the hops. An old bottle perhaps? Still stoked to try a nice IPA from the small town where I grew up.

12 oz bottle. Aroma of orange, maybe even Clementine. Flavors of OJ, honey and a hint of Graham cracker. Pretty near a sweet juice bomb. tillmac62 (771) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Clear copper pour. Normal head volume, quite outstanding lacing and very good retention.
Outstanding nose of mango, light grapefruit and very subtle spruce over biscuit with caramel notes.
Light medium body that is smooth with a touch of slickness. Quite outstanding carbonation / body balance with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish that approaches rollicking.
The richness of the flavor is quite outstanding, however bitterness is low for the style. Consequently, the flavor profile is outstanding but would be quite outstanding for an APA. It begins with a sweet burst of biscuit with strong caramel notes. Hops soon arrive as a mango / pineapple blend that never really separates although mango becomes more pronounced after the very mildly bittered middle. As the finish approaches, grainy biscuit churns underneath a subtle spicy spruce with grapefruit zest notes. The finish is a slow fade that ends slightly dry and with a zest note.

Tap. Clearish light rust orange. Pine, some grapefruit and wood along with sown caramel in the aroma. Flavor is same, but more caramel. Slightly warming. Light to medium body. GSH1976 (307) - Delaware, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Pours copper with little head. Aroma is very malty with some citrus in the background. The bottle had a date of February 2016 but this seems old and tastes more like a barleywine. Maybe that is the best by date? Taste is caramel malt with very little hop presence. Medium bodied with very little bitterness. I really hope this was an old bottle.

Poured from bottle
L: Bright, beautiful effervescent gold
S: Sweet mango
T: Even more mango with lime at the tail. Very crisp. Low bitterness. Little sweetness. Hint of pine at the very end.
F: Pretty carbonated for an IPA and it suits it well. Light-bodied and resinous, so the hops shine.
O: Very surprised by this one. A stellar example of a prototypical new school IPA that stands out for its execution.
