Thanks to dogdoc for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into CCB pint glass.
A: Pours a slightly hazy light amber with shades of peach. A one-finger eggwhite head forms with only a bit of visible carbonation.
S: Flowery hops dominate for me with sweet malt, and then some pine and grapefruit hops.
T: Bitter hoppinesss up front (pine & citrus) and biscuit sweet malt, which fade to citrus pith or rind flavor.
M: A somewhat thin and under-carbonated mouthfeel. Only a mild bitter hang. No alcohol presence to speak of.
O: Good flavor and aroma, and a very enjoyable beer. The mouthfeel is nearly a deal-breaker but I did get used to it. I'll look forward to this one again.

This is real beer. It is authentic. One of a kind, but easy to find. My new favorite go-to beer. Refreshing crisp taste. Always tastes fresh and not like it has been sitting on a shelf for a year. As far as IPAs go it isn't bitter or biting. It is balanced, smooth, and has great flavors. Goes well with most foods but also great on it's own.

On-tap at the Oxford in Raleigh, NC on 20 June 2014.
Pours clear medium amber. One finger of off-white head, good retention, fantastic lacing covering the inside of the glass.
Smell is faint, more earthy than anything else, with an herbal slant. Not much there.
Taste is just straight up plain bitter. Pretty one-dimensional. A little grain in front. Rather chalky. Meh
Feel is okay. Medium-heavy, enough carbonation. Unremarkable.
A simple, straightforward IPA. Not a whole lot to it, other than enough bitterness to cover any subtle flavors but not enough to be a palate wrecker.
