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.

I really enjoyed this one. Definitely has hops but not overly dry.
