North Carolina

4.2/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark, hazy orange with nearly two fingers of white head. The head recedes to a thin white film with some lacing

S: A pleasant aroma of some citrus at first followed strongly by pine and grapefruit rind.

T: Similar to the aroma, there are some citrus flavors up front but then the resiny pine kicks in during the middle. There is some bitterness at the end, but it doesn't stick around long or coat your tongue like many piney IPAs do.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation which goes well with the resiny pine flavors.

D: It's a pretty drinkable IPA, especially for one that shows off the pine flavors so well. Many piney IPAs coat my tongue with bitterness that lingers well after the taste, but not this one.
