3.93/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: A little light for an IPA, but not being perfectly clear is a good sign. Small but thick head that lingers pretty well. Interesting bubble formation made me think there was some yeast particles that floated to the top, but such was not the case.

S: Very crisp, clean smell with a small amount of lightly piney hops.

T: A very clean and slightly malty IPA. Not as well balanced as some other non-hop-bomb IPAs (Think SN Anniversary), but definitely comes in close. The hop bitterness is somewhere between citrus and pine, and doesn't quite balance as well as it could with the toasted malt background, but it's definitely good. There's a slight sharpness to the taste that registers as it warms and as you grow accustomed to the beer. Yet despite those minor flaws it's definitely tasty and worthy of multiple bottles.

M: Slight sharpness and very dry, slightly astringent, but not off-putting.

D: Astringency does not lead to quick gulps, but it's not so heavy that you can't have a few of them. Not sure of the ABV but it doesn't seem much higher than 6 (could be totally wrong).

Overal a very strong brew from a brewery that's fairly close to my home. I have a tendency to buy local brews so even though this is not my highest rated beer I'll definitely come back to it regularly. IMO the quality of a beer and the distance it has traveled are inversely proportional, all other factors being somewhat equal. If you live way out of the area, this is probably something you can avoid and not be missing anything, but if you live in the area around Kinston, NC, this should become a staple.

3.5/5  rDev -4.4%
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.
