Bought a 4 pack of this before I will travel to the brewery for a tour.

Pours a nice fluffy head and leaves a moderate lace. The taste seems a little boring and flavorless at first, but quickly grew on me. Was not impressed after the first bottle but have since changed my mind. Very nice pure hop aroma. Not overly bitter with an after taste of florally hops.

Overall, this beer grew on me. Was unimpressed on first taste but believe it is a well rounded DIPA. Very excited to taste it fresh on tap at the brewery.

Found this oddity at The Mellow Mushroom in Greensboro, NC. It's a clear dark amber/light copper color with a solid off-white foamy cover and great lacing. The aroma offers very little, just a slightly yeasty wheat and maybe hint of bayleaf. The flavor is more purposeful with a dry grass hop over light bready malt. I pick up some suggestion of cherries and some pine hop steps up after a few tastes. This is a bright, crisp feeling DIPA with medium body and modest but adequate carbonation. The flavor is pretty grassy but it is favorably balanced with the piny-malt characteristics. It's not an overstated DIPA, no special evidence of alcohol. In fact, the hops are not real loud here so it might disappoint most DIPA enthusiasts, but it's not bad tasting and quite drinkable for the style. A little too grassy leaning to be a favorite for me but I recommend it for a try.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Greensboro.I looked around for this beer and there isnt much information about it,kinda surprised to see it on tap down here.Poured a a mix of amber and burnt orange,a large fluffy white crown atop.Very muted aromas with mainly just a passing whiff of leafy hop and sweet alcohol.Flavors are much like the aromas meaning very light and ho hum,leafy hop and sweetsh caramel malt with a shot of the sweet alcohol.To me its nothing like a DIPA,not big hops,not much complexity,just sweetness.Eh another Atwater beer to not have again.
