Pours a bright orangish copper with a quarter of an inch of soft, white, foamy head that fades to a thin layer. The nose is quite floral and fruity with some citrusy notes. There are also hints of light malt and some underlying alcohol. The taste is lightly bready malt up front followed by some light grapefruit and apple-like fruitiness and then finishes with a big, earthy, bitter, piny hop bite. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, but quite crisp and a little bity.

This isn't a bad beer by any means. The malt character is lacking in my opinion and some of the fruity notes didn't seem to mesh well, but overall it was enjoyable.

I am not sure what is going on, I see that Carolina Brewing once had an ENDO IPA....however, according to the menu and bar tender Foothills has taken over brewing the ENDO IPA. I am trying this at the Taste of Carolina in Councourse B of Charlotte airport. The beer is a pale yellow with thin white head that is lacing slightly. The smell is mostly floral...not much pine of citrus to note. The taste is also mostly floral....like corriander, etc. I am guesing Columbus hops were used...but do not know for sure. The mouthfeel is light to medim with decent carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer...a bit to floral for my liking.

Picked up a bottle while out at the Outer Banks, NC. The bitterness isn't huge, but there's a nice array of citrus juice hop oils with a mild herbal edge and lingering bitter rind. It would have trouble standing up to the heavy hitters of the style, but you consider this a tasty summer-weight IPA and great BBQ companion. Certainly a beer I'd pick up for the beach again.

deep mahogany tinted amber with a smallish half inch or so head, that quickly faded leaving nothing but a thin film. No residual lace, and only a slight bit of visible carbonation.

S - Very sweet, lots of candied sugar mixed in over a nice citrus hops with a good malted back, very well balanced aroma.

T - Nice bitter IPA taste. A bit sweet, and definatly an east coast IPA as the the major harsh citrus hops were definatly not that prevelenet. An average IPA/

M- Very smooth, somewhat slick, not alot of carbonation on this. Not a very dry finish, taste did linger.

D - Fairly high on the drinkability scale as this was definatly a gulper. I could see myself throwing down quite a bit of these to be honest. Not bad at all but pretty average.

Overall not bad for a regional IPA. I would try it again, but would not buy it in great quantity.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy white head that died down a bit but consistently left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose - orange and grapefruit seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and quite citrusy but only has a light amount of associated hop bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice easy to drink IPA if you like citrusy flavors but don't want lots of hop bitterness.

Poured from 12oz bottle into HF tulip. Pours a hazey orange with slight quick head and some slight lacing. Very strong bitter rye malt aromas with a big hop presence and very mild citrus. Its meh...
Flavor is on the malty side. Really taste like a rye IPA. Im getting some citrus and crisp fresh water type flavor. Its a bit bitter; not the good ipa kind, but a little harsh. Its a better than average brew, but not an amazing ipa.
