Bottle as a trade extra. Thanks! Pours clear golden orange with a big fluffy and creamy white head. Very pretty. Nice floral aroma that had some hay, lots of sweet mango, light grapefruit, citrus peel, nice lightly sweet malts in the backdrop. Flavor is grass, a hint of mango, sweet generic malts, a bit of funky hop presence, and a slightly off finish. Medium plus bitterness. Medium light bodied, plus carbonation, dry of the finish. Overall a perfectly pleasant IPA that would be very very good if not for the tinge of off flavor in the finish. Worth drinking.

Grapefruit, resin, pine, tangerine, lightly catty notes, and a hint of caramel malt form the aroma. Tropical fruit notes of mango emerge. Fairly complex hop character. Flavor reveals more resin dominance at the base, with pine carrying into the bitter finish. Toasted malt serves only to tie the hop flavor together. Grapefruit pith and tangerine are far overpowered by the resiny hop onslaught. It's more bitter than I prefer, with a bit of harshness at the finish. Loved the aroma, but wish the fruit had carried through more prominently. The finish kills it for me.

Purchased at a gas station in the middle so nowhere driving from Tennessee to Florida. From bottle, poured into tulip.

A: Orangey-brown. Some'd call it copper, but I wouldn't go that far.

A: Grape skin and peachy aromas. Tartness with maltiness. Some stereotypical IPA pineiness and resininess as well.

T: A well balanced piney/hoppy IPA. Good bite and lingering flavors. Not overly complex or sweet or bitter. Nectarine/peach fruit flavors at the forefront, with a clean pine/resin followthru.

M: Perfect carbonation and mouthfeel. Crisp and perfect to accompany a greasy burger and fries or steak.

O: I'd rate this beer among the best lighter IPAs out there, including Bell's Two Hearted (a personal favorite). Not an exacted replica with the all the yummy grapefruitiness of 2<3'd that I love, but this one definitely hits the spot.

Local tap at Fox and Hounds in Raleigh.
Pours slightly hazy, coppery orange with a tight head. Foam fades bur doesn't disappear, thin lace.
Smell is of citrusy hops, very nice.
Taste has some biscuit malt, then lots of citrus herbal hops.
This beer has a medium body and a slightly sticky mouth feel. Good level of carbonation makes it easy to drink.
Overall, this is a good A IPA with a nice balance between the malt and hops.
