Nice beer. I had it from a can in a tumbler at the Bayou Pub just down the street from the brewery.

Look--Pours a very cloudy yellow/gold with some sediment evident. Medium head leaves nice lacing on the glass.

Smell--Very bright, pine up first followed by a nice hit of citrus. Maybe a little malt there as well.

Taste--As with the nose, it't pine up front with citrus bringing up the rear. Slight malt hint is paired with citrus for a very nice aftertaste as well.

Feel--Definitely not as resiny or "thick" feeling as some IPAs. Medium body and very easy to drink, especially for the style.

Overall--This certainly doesn't just smack you in the face with hops, but they're definitely the stars of the show here. All in all a very drinkable IPA, and I'm sad I only bought one can. I'll be getting more for sure.

Fuity hops and nicely floral. Smooth and not overly bitter.

Nice, light golden color with a spectacular head and lacing. Aroma hits up front with piney hops and a backup of citrus. Taste is awesome with flavors of sticky, piney hops, citrus, lots of orange and some light grapefruit. This is what I expected, and I am happy. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth with just the right amount of bitterness. Finished clean AND THIS BEER IS A LITTLE LIGHTER THAN EXPECTED, BUT BALANCED WELL AND A FINE, FINE JOB FROM ePIC !!

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient bubbly lacing.

S- Grassy, slightly resinous hop aroma with a somewhat sweet malt backing.

T- Moderately bitter with piney hop flavor. Malt isn't as apparent as in the aroma. Bitterness lingers a bit.

M- Slightly sharp with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Nothing special. Just a straightforward IPA that definitely leans more toward the earthy side.

Can -

A: Poured into a snifter the off white head took on the appearance of soapy mixed sized bubbles and didn’t persist for more then a half minute.Cloudy gold color with light a orange hue. A noticeable amount of hop sediment dropped to the bottom of the glass.

S: Grapefruit, tangerine and citrus fruit on the first impression from the hops at medium strength. Mild pine/evergreen as it warms up. low caramel malt sweetness with small malty character. Clean fermentation with no noticeable esters.

T: Grapefruit bitterness is courser / rougher in the back of the throat and reminds me of the classic american ‘C’ hops, which I enjoy. A more round flavored pine and citrus hop flavor in the middle that is juicy, but seems slightly old or not as sharp as it could be. Mild malty, munich like, character persists from middle to end and balances nicely with the hop flavors. Finish is clean. Balance is on the hops (duh).

M: Medium-Low bodied with medium carbonation. There is a slight grassiness from the sediment that leaves a vegital taste in your mouth after the last few sips (if you drink it) No alcohol warming. Crisp and clean.

O: A refreshing classically tasting American IPA with a little more body and clean malt flavor. It seemed a little old, but couldn’t find a date on the can - fresh I’m sure its great.

Pours slightly hazed golden with a white lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus with a hint of pine.

The taste is of citrus with some pine. A sweet kiss balances it in the finish.

It is chewy/creamy.

A very nice example of the modern, well-hopped, but with firm malt backbone, American IPA.
