Served on-tap at Weeping Radish Eco Farm & Brewery in Grandy, NC

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium copper in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some peach highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of honey along with grainy malts and some floral hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy malts with a touch of caramel sweetness followed by moderate flavors of floral hops and just a touch of citrus/lemon hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fade rather quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: I thought this was an interesting brew and one I recommend that they add to the rotating menu - it is a really nice spring/summer beer. The story I was told behind it is that it was a testing batch for a potential beer to be contract brewed at the location. It was easy to drink and flavorful.

1L flip-top bottle from the brewery, and poured into oversized fat-mouth glass.

Pours with short head over hazy, golden-amber body.

Aromas have a fresh floral hop pull, with a good deal of bready malt, and some sweet honey, too.

Mouthfeel is pretty creamy - more than an IPA probably should be. But the flavor and aftertaste pull it back in check. Huge honey sweetness blankets the bitter, floral hops.

A pretty darn interesting beer, even if it's not a traditional IPA (who wants those anymore?)

A: Clear, the color of polished copper, with a thick finger of dense foam. Lacing was excellent.

S: Faint floral hops and grain, less nose than I expected from a beer of this style.

T: Sweet malt (and honey?) is the first and dominant flavor, with biscuity grain notes as well. The hops bitterness is slow to develop, but eventually takes over.

M: A little thin for an IPA, but nicely carbonated. Finish is a touch dry.

O: No hop-bomb here - it's more traditional English IPA than the American version. Still, it's tasty (sessionable even). The next time I pass through coastal N.C., I'll stop in for another pint.
