4.44/5 rDev +12.4%
Appearance: a nice strong orange color. Good clarity. And about a finger of a whitish head that leaves a bit if lacing.
Smell: juicy and not too bitter hops. A smack of citrus followed by mellow notes of florals and spice
Taste: juicy hops open up. Mixing with floral and a good spicy hop kick. Nice hop flavor backed by a nice bready malt
Mouthfeel: nice drinking. Medium body. Moderate bitterness.
Overall: awesomely crafted ipa. Could easily be a go to/ standard if it was easy to find in bottles. Very tasty drinkable and spot on in all aspects

On tap at World of Beer Raleigh. Served in a pint glass.
A - orangish amber with a little white head; no retention
S - citrusy, grapefruit, lightly bready
T - grapefruit, citrusy, bready, piny, bitter finish
M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated
This is delicious. There is perfect balance between malts and hops. The hop character is citrusy up front and finishes with a light, piny bitterness. The malt is lightly bready and holds up nicely to the heavy hops. This is definitely worth a try.

on-tap at (gasp) Jeff's Bucket Shop on Montford
I think this is somehow my first Birdsong beer - I've been overlooking them for years until this fateful night. My first impression was that this was not a beer that deserved to be overlooked - a classically crafted IPA - citrus forward and oily with a moderate stinging bitterness. The malt bill supports this nicely without being too noticeable. This was good - the rest of the birdsong lineup will have to wait until my next eastward venture though.

Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom 11/8/2012
Pretty standard dark orange/amber appearance with a faint head that trailed off quickly and didn't leave much lacing. Smell was split between citrus and pine. Smelled great, though not as much citrus as I was hoping for (after the descriptions I've read I had hoped to be blown away by strong grapefruit notes). Taste was tilted more toward the piny side, with citrus still there, and a faint biscuit or bread taste. Solid bitter finish to balance everything out. Medium bodied for an IPA with noticeable carbonation. Very solid IPA, and the best thing I've tried from Birdsong.
