4.11/5  rDev -4.6%

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy amber color; the head is respectable and leaves a bit a lacing here and there

Smell: Grapefruit and tropical fruit elements

Taste: A hint of sweet malt and then we are off to West Coast hoppy paradise, with grapefruit and tropical fruits; the bitterness builds, in the middle and through the finish; just a touch of residual sugar lingers in the aftertaste, taking a back seat to the grapefruit

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A first class IPA from a state which doesn't produce many of them - nice to find this and would love to see it in bottles

A: poured into a snifter, this beer pours a clear golden caramel color. The brew leaves a little lacing, not as impressive as the high end west coast IPAs that I've had.

S: For an IPA with citra, the nose is lacking in the hoppy aroma. Raw hop notes, pine, some pineapple. A little hint of toastiness in the background.

T: this beer is not lacking in flavor. Sweet maulty background, excellent bitterness from the hops.

Mf: this is not a pallet wrecker, the hop profile is strong up front, but doesnt stick around long enough to kill your pallet. Carbonation is excellent, chewwy, and full for an iPA

Overall an ipa worth having.

5/5  rDev +16%

A: Pours a pale amber color with one+ finger off-white head and thick lacing.

S: Grapefruit dominated citrus flavor accented by pine and tropical fruit notes.

T&M: Overwhelmingly hops at the getgo! Citrusy with notes of orange, grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. Solid malt backbone but the hops are definitely the strongest. Crisp, slightly sweet-but-dry finish with lingering citrus hop aftertaste. Moderate carbonation.

OMG - my new 'favorite' IPA. I've tasted side-by-side with Sculpin and Ruination... BLOWS THEM AWAY

bomber bottled 7/15 and consumed the same day..into a shaker.

pours a crisp copper color with an inch head. smell is great...fruity and hoppy, very bold. taste is superb as well. nice sweet mango at first followed by a good hop bitterness on the back end. extremely drinkable. medium bodied with medium carbonation.

overall this might be the best IPA in north Carolina. really love this one.

16oz can from Salud into a Duvel glass...

A: Light copper; two-finger cream head; leaves a few thick sheets of lace before retention fades.

S: A hop buffet... pine resin, citrus, grapefruit rind, tropical fruit notes and some stank. FU malt.

T: Hop nectar mostly; nary a hint of malt; resin and pine; citrus rind; huge hop flavor.

M: Full-bodied; moderate carbonation; a big feel... near DIPA territory.

O: A delicious, huge IPA... wow! Kind of a mini-Hopslam. Reminiscent of Lagunitas Sucks, too.
