Got from Total Wine in Cary, poured into a pint glass.

I'm not very discriminate on a beer's appearance, so it looked like any other IPA to me. Same with smell, nothing unexpected for this style.

This beer definitely goes under the "good" category of IPAs. It does not turn me away from the style and it is enjoyable to drink. However, it is not one of those rare and special ones that I have had that really sticks out to me. Has a good hop taste, but not much of that grapefruit or citrus flavor that really goes well with that bitter hoppiness.

Overall, is definitely a good one to try. You never know, it may turn out to be your favorite. However, in my opinion, it is not one that I would choose over any other decent IPA that I have had before.
