Canned a few days ago, generously shared by my first trade partner, portable. Ripped one open warm the day Doug gave them to me for maximum freshness, now for a closer look. Enjoyed from a beer hunter taster glass

a - brew poured a classic IPA orange brown with a frothy full and foamy off white head that had great staying power and coated the glass with lace.

s - ah yes. Sticky sweat piny resinous hop but heavy handed with citric and tropical fruit notes. Boy oh boy, that smells fantastic.

t - as the nose suggested, buckle up. Here is a bonafide west coast IPA from nc! Lacking a bit of the fruitiness in the nose the thick resinous hop slams you in the face like a good west coast IPA ought to.

m - a bit chewy, not for the faint of heart. Coats me in bitterness on the finish.

o - overall, there ya have it, a west coast IPA brewed in NC. Go figure. Nicely done. Super excited to have sampled this one so fresh.

As the gold medal shows, this beer is fantastic. Great citrus notes don't overly dry out the beer. It's sure to please any hop-head. I just hope all of the Brewhaha over the gold medal doesn't create any quality/quantity issues. Congrats to all of you guys down at NoDa
