Had this on pint in Raleigh a few months back and thought it was good, so when I heard they just started sending growlers to the Triangle, I pounced and got one at the Beer Dispensary in Apex.
A - Amber-brown, with just a bit of a head, which dissipates fairly rapidly
S - Get mostly malt off this one, but a bit of hops as well
T - Here's where this one stands out; a bit of malty sweetness, which is followed up quickly by an extremely flavorful hop kick, which is piney and bitter, but also very tasty. Also get a bit of chocolate, earthy malt which only reveals itself at the very end of the palate and adds a bit of complexity. DEFINITELY in the west coast style. To those below not getting much hops out of this one, perhaps you had an old sample? Did Green Man change their recipe? This one is very fresh and the hop flavor is substantial and hangs around in the mouth for a LONG time, too. Very, very solid, IMO - really liking this.
M - Fairly smooth; popped the growler 2 days after I got it and still had a decent amount of carbonation left.
Surprised and impressed with this one - Triangle beer drinkers seek this one out!

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

While this beer promotes itself as an English IPA, I believe it is fair to review this beer based on its overall taste.

A - Poured a deep orange, clear, 2 finger head with off white bubbles.

S - Very bitter astringent hop aroma with some faint malt notes.

T - Non distinct bitter up front, followed by maltiness but not pleasant. One dimensional with a medium mouthfeel.

O- This is a bland, non descript ale with no complexity. After a couple of attempts at this one, I finally decided to pour this down the drain while remembering I had a Lagunitas on hand.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Copper with a slight haze, a very few fine bubbled carbonation rising from half way up the glass to the surface, half a finger of off white head.

S: Caramel, jackfruit, light boiled cabbage.

T: Caramel, light sweetness, jackfruit, onion, medium light bitterness comes in on the end. A toffee quality also comes in near the end. All flavours are subtle.

M: Medium bready body, medium low carbonation.

O: Well done version of a traditional English IPA. Been a while since I’ve had this style, so its fun to recalibrate from the American spins on this classic. Well done.

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured in a pint glass.

A-dark copper with a stained brown

S-citrus background with a fresh bouquet of flowers and grass on the nose

T-the floral aroma comes through again, good bitterness all the way around, definitely heavily loaded in german/english malts/hops

M-good carbonation, creamy malt feel

Not a bad IPA, for a local beer glad I finally got to try this one. I'm not a huge fan of the English-style IPA but this one is pretty tasty. I'd have another,
