look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Slight chill haze on a dark gold color. Head is white with a loose, foamy cap. Drops to a thin wispy cap with a tiny collar. Some specks of lacing. Lighter carbonation than.expected.

Smell: Light caramel malt sweetness. Some backing breast notes. Hops run through pine and citrus. Pine needles and orange zest. Lightly floral with a slightly spicy hop finish. Vague salty aroma. Juicy and sweet. Nice balance. Orange juice sweetness. Cooked malts.

Taste: Slightly spicy and leafy hops. Cooked and slightly caramelized malts. Bready, like.crust. Big juicy orange with some backing pine needle. A bit watery. Marmalade and a touch of mint. Low-grade balance. warming tamps everything down a bit, leaving more juicy orange than anything else.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation on a medium to light body. Incredibly smooth and pushes creamy. Very clean and easy drinking.

Overall: Suboptimal.

Decent. Best thing it has going for it is the silky smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is balanced and approachable.

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!
