I look at the ratings of this beer and I'm very surprised. I think this beer is exceptional. Drank a month out from bottling and in MA, so maybe I'm benefiting from the freshness. The beer smells and tastes awesome. Very good carbonation, with lots of citrus up front and a sweet aftertaste. Really good brew. (310 characters)

This beers smells amazing. Taste isn't quite as good as it smells but still very good. Would be a higher rating but it just kept foaming out of the bottle. I didn't drop it or anything so weird. Could only take 2-3 sips, all I was getting was foam. Decent tasting foam though. (276 characters)

Slightly hazed, orangey apricot with a light beige head that slowly recedes. Low aroma of floral hops, a little perfumey.

Flavor of toffee malt upfront, followed by grapefruit citrus hops, tastes like centennial. Morphs quickly to pine, and bitter orange rind. Fairly bitter, but this tastes like a single IPA, not a double IPA. Not overly complex, thin mouthfeel, this is just above average overall. (401 characters)

From the 650 ml. bottle dated April 7, 2014. Sampled on May 26, 2014.

The pour is a slight hazy copper orange amber with a long lasting white foamy head that lingers on.

The aroma has a decent dose of floral and piney hops that emit a grapefruit-like character. The toasted malts figure into the aroma a little bit too.

The body is around medium and fairly smooth.

The taste has plenty of resiny hops on my tongue but not to the point of exploding in my face. Malt character can also be tasted. This is a well-balanced Imperial IPA that still emphasizes the hops with a dry bitter finale. (593 characters)

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Notches indicate that it was bottled in March 2015.

A- Pours a hazy medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white fluffy head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a large center patch of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient slivers of lacing.

S- Very fruity hop aroma brings to mind orange and potpourri spice. Also a bit grassy with a slight booze fume.

T- Taste follows suit with some peach, mango and melon notes with a restrained bitterness. Very easy to drink for the ABV. The fruit complexity continues with grapefruit rind and apricot.

M- Somewhat dry with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- This IPA is pretty much all citrus rind which is nice if you're looking for a hoppy beer that focuses more on the fruity aspects, isn't heavy on the bitterness and also isn't too sweet. First I've had from this brewer and I'm impressed. (968 characters)
