look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Tap

Pours a hazy orange gold, white sudsy head retains as a film.

Smells of piney and citrus hops, bready malts, and a bit of honey.

Piney and citrus hop flavor over honey biscuit malts. Slight woody finish.

Medium body with tingly carbonation.

Very good ipa with great flavor. Definitely worth trying.
