Pours nicely, but this is simply just raw hops to me. Just overpoweeing hops with much skunky bite. the mouth feel is not bad but just not the right combination of hops buscuit and malt. Bought local on a vacation and was let down. Enjoyed sweetwatee al local beer much more.

Glass: Boulevard Ales pint glass
From: Trader Joe’s in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Price: $1.67 (I think)
Purchased: July 26, 2014

Misc.: Appeared to be born in July 2014, but couldn’t read the whole label

Poured a caramel, orange, mostly clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Some bubbles coming up from the bottom. Good amount of foamy, layered, spotty lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled Simcoe hops, Columbus hops, citrus hops, grapefruit rind, floral notes, caramel, wet Cascade hops, sharp pine and light resin hops.

Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got wet Cascade hops, spicy Columbus hops, sharp Simcoe hops, citrus hops, some resin hops, floral hops, light grapefruit and sharp pine.

Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter, citrusy finish.

A pretty good IPA overall. Would have it again for sure.
