hard for ipa to be real distinct anymore, so much of it has already been done a million times, that i am just happy to have good ipa anymore. so when a beer like this comes along and is not only good, but different, i get really stoked. turns out the carolina scene is burgeoning, and these guys are near the front of the pack. a blonde sunny looking ipa with almost no bitterness in nose or taste, just a huge bouquet of resinous fruity hops, sticky and intense, but somehow light and clean finishing, more fruit than bite, and more character than bitterness. the malt bill is light enough for hops to resonate, but big enough to balance them out, add a bready front end, and make the beer flush and full on the palate, despite being quite a sessionable beer for me. i like the tropical warm weather feel to this, the uniqueness of the hop profile, and how active the carbonation is. not filling at all, a beer i would buy regularly if it were available here in colorado. maybe it will be before long, everyone around me who tasted this agreed that it was wonderful, maybe demand will make it happen...

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, caramel-copper coloring, with a filmy, sparse, white head. Nose of tropical fruit, caramel, peppery hops, and grapefruit highlights. Flavors of grapefruit forward, with a caramel backbone, lemon-lime highlights, pepper spice, and piney hops. Smooth and mid-bodied, with a resinous bitter aftertaste. The finish is slick and slightly dry. Very tasty beer!

Pours into an imperial nonic a clear rich medium golden with almost a full finger of tight white head that leaves broken rings of lace as it settles.Leafy and citric hops dominate the nose with almost no malt base to speak of.Green leafy and citric hops dominate the palate with only mild sweetnes,it has a "green garden" flavor to it wich is a good thing.I'am not sure this a sessionable IPA with it's 6.5%ABV but it's a solid beer from Asheville.

Brilliant golden with a frothy cream head that fades to a thin layer of foam.
Orange, lime, and resin dominate. There's a bready malt character and an underlying onion base.
Flavor reveals earthy bitterness and grassy hops as dominant figures, fairly bitter, but the slightly tart grapefruit pith counters nicely. Earthiness dominates. The onion is present, but subdued.
Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Bitterness is earthy, rather than astringent/harsh. Citrus offers a nice counterpoint.
