22oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - murky orange/amber color with a thin white head that became just a ring.

S - tangerine aroma, I'm not really getting anything else.

T - tangerine sweetness upfront with citrus rind bitterness on the finish.

F - medium bodied with mild carbonation.

O - fair example of the style.

Had this tasty beer within 2 weeks of bottling date on the package, super-fresh hop aroma and nice, well balanced hop on the palate with plenty of lingering Simcoe on the finish.

Beautiful, mid-range IPA and well done at this price point. Looking forward to watching this brewery grow and expand its distribution and offerings. Long live NC beers!

A - Golden honey color that is slightly cloudy. Pours a nice head that sticks around for a couple of minutes before dissipating to a lacy head. Leaves moderate lacing down the sides.

S - Balanced. Citrus notes, piney notes, and earthy malt undertones.

T - Lives up nicely to the smell. Nice hops, not overpowering, and a nice malt backbone to balance.

M - Very good, perfect about of carbonation to give this a really nice feel.

Overall I've had this one tons of times but this is my first time from a bottle. I have to admit I was a little excited to see that I could enjoy this one at home now, even though I can get this at most bars nearby here in the Raleigh, NC area. It does loose a little in the bottle, maybe not as fresh as what I'm used to on draft around here, but still fresh and a great beer. One of the more balanced IPAs out there to me. This has what an IPA should, strong hops character with a nice malt balance, and what makes the balance better is that to my taste, one particular hops flavor does not stand out, rather nice combination. Great beer and a good example of what the North Carolina craft scene has to offer.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a 12 oz tall pint. Pours a darker but still light orange with a nice white head. Smells of nice citrus hops, nice but not overly complex. Tastes of piney and floral hops, very nice taste. Beer goes down smooth, good carbonation, light body. Overall a very good beer.
