I've tried this and the other Mother Earth offerings a number of times on-tap, but this particular serving unit of Sisters of the Moon is my first encounter with an NC-born American IPA bottled from the east-sieed of I-95. 11/09 bottled on date; classy packaging with cool label art. Let's get it on.

The 12-ounce longneck pours hazy orange-tinted golden amber and the brew is capped with a finger-and-a-half's thickness of pale ivory foam. The glossy, fine-grained crown of bubbles settles slowly in my flashy Tripel Karmeliet tulip, depositing a webby sheet of lacing onto the inner walls of the vessel.

The aroma is sweetly fruity and hop-laden, with notes of ripe peaches, mango, and tangerine laced with a musky dose of evergreen, grassy, and dank herbal hops.

The taste is dominated by a potent pale-caramel and burnt-toffee sweetness, with plenty of bitter grass, powdered pine rosin, green herbs, and tooth-squeaking citrus peel oil. The honey/brown-sugary maltiness is plentiful, as is the chlorophyllic, smoky-green lingering hop bitterness, but neither facet seems interested in balancing the other. Lots of sweet, lots of bitter, but no real meeting in the middle. Hmm.

The drink is on the light medium-bodied side with fine carbonation and is an easy drinker, for sure. Another solid (and highly-welcomed) brew from the newcomers in Kinston.

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

Typical heady IPA, hoppy nose with piney undertones. Taste is good, nothing spectacular but a very solid showing.

Lacking punch in the mouthfeel department, and a little bitter for my palate.

There are just SO many IPAs to taste. I would drink this again if offered or at the brewery. Wouldn't necessarily seek it out.
