I'll start this review with a confession: this is my favorite all-around, everyday drinking beer.
Pours a hazy golden color with an off-white, fizzy head. Aroma indicates that it's nicely dry-hopped, with pine needles and grapefruit coming through brightly. The taste is clean and slightly bitter, but more understated than the pungent nose.
I could (and have) drink this all day long. It's interesting enough to keep your taste buds happy, but not overpowering such that it kills them off. It's perfectly balanced and infinitely enjoyable. As a session beer, it has few peers -- but it's equally as enjoyable to just sip one.
An outstanding flagship beer that needs to make its way to NC, stat.

Served on tap at Pizano's in the loop in Chicago.
Coarse white head dissipated quickly, but left very sticky rings. A clear, slightly gold-tinged straw color with light carbonation.
Smells of grapefruit and herbal notes. A drop of honey perhaps.
Taste of hops up front, more herbal then citrus on the palate. Some malty sweetness comes through mid-palate, then finishes with more bitterness.
Generally very well-integrated with medium body, but there's a hint of aqueousness on the finish.

From notes on 7/16/14 at Hopleaf in Chicago, IL
Tap in pint glass
A: Translucent amber. Drinking this side-by-side with Zombie Dust. This has more of a straw color, while Zombie dust has a more copper color. Off white thin head.
S: Relatively muted. Both the hops and malt. Slight piney notes of hops
T: More of a malt presence than Zombie Dust. The finish is dry. No up front single hop presence like ZD.
M: Well carbonated. Medium bodied. Even finish. Extremely crisp and clean.
D: Very drinkable. Nice brew. No overpowering bitterness from hops. More of a malt presence than ZD like bread and biscuits. Does not seem to showcase a particular hop like other APAs. Just an extremely all around well made beer. More even keeled than ZD and overall a better beer.
