First Natty Green product I can truly say I like! I hope Natty Green will keep it in their rotation as it is currently listed as a seasonal. Full bodied with a nice hop bite as well. A little more depth than some of the IPAs that are primarily hop-driven.

On draft at The Thirsty Monk, Asheville, NC.

Poured a light copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and veey good lacing.

The smell featured fruity esters and a moderate piney hop.

The taste was essentially hop driven with a full malt backbone.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty IPA.

This is a delicious hoppy beer with a a full bodied sweet taste. The best IPA I have tasted to date. It has a great balance of hops and sweet malty flavor. The taste is moderately complex, just simply sweet and hoppy. I consider this among the best of IPAs that I have tried. At 6.5% APV, it is definitely mellow for the alcohol content. This is my favorite beer at this time. I hope this is not a promotional item that will be discontinued.

I always wondered when Natty Greene was going to bring out a flagship IPA. This seems to fit the bill although it claims to be a limited release on the label. That would be a missed opportunity since this appears to be a big winner. Handsome electric tan color and a monster head with oodles, yes, oodles, of lace. tasty, but not overpowering nose with the expected spicy west coast hops.

Not overly aggressive hopping but there isn't a ton of balance so its fairly naked. Some bready malt notes underneath but mostly, this is still about the hops. Rich, bitter aftertaste that really defines this beer for me. Goes down easy and seems fairly sessionable. Not the greatest IPA in the state but a welcome addition if they choose to make it a regular option.
