Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: merc7186 on 03-23-2013

Packed full of hop flavor with a lighter malt body, this American IPA showcases Citra, Centennial and Chinook hops. Citrus, Grapefruit and Passionfruit dominate the nose and tongue in this hop bomb. Brewed on a limited basis because of short supply of it's namesake hops.

Pours into an impy nonic a dull peach-like color with a full one finger white head atop.Wow a big blast of grapefruit and pine in the nose wich is refreshing,a big hop driven "standard" IPA.A rush of sharp grapefruit and citric hops hits ya on the palate upfront,alot of grapefruit going on here, some sugary sweetness and a mild spicy note from the Chinooks in the finish,the hops are the main attraction here,Iam not even writing anything about the malt profile.This beer is vastly underrated in my opinon,this is one of the better hop profiled beers if not the best in this state,in my opinion...

Good flavorful IPA. Smell and taste is of a kind of burnt citrusy flavor. Very nice pungent citrusy smell. Hits the front of the mouth with nice citrusy hop taste and settles with a bit of bitterness in the back., More of a crispy clean feel that evens out after it settles. Nice offering from an up and coming Charlotte brewery.

L: Pours brilliant gold under a 1” off-white foam cap with very fine bubbles. Moderately persistent. Produces thin lattice work lace. S: Herbal aromas with garlic, mint and citrus. T: a citrusy palate supported by some light fruit – grape and tropical - leads to an assertive bitter finish with some astringency from the hops. The hop flavors are medium, hop bitterness medium high to high and the malt is medium. F: Medium body and carbonation. O: A very bitter elixir

Color is gold, some chill haze but basically clear with a 3/4" white head of both large and small bubbles. Aroma is upfront grassy citrus. Sweet floral, dank leaves, and fruit of tropical and citrus variety. Taste is brisk, dry, nicely bitter and flavorful. Fruity w/peach and tropical hints of mango and candied pineapple. Grassy and slightly earthy in flavor as well. Mouthfeel is slick-smooth, dry, and appropriately carbonated. Overall not bad. Nicely hopped.

This isn't that bad, but I think it was a bad can. Very little carbonation. I'm trying to get behind that, and I can this has potential for a good IPA if properly carbonated. I'll revisit this again.

Drinking local on this rainy day. Nice and hoppy. Great citrus. Mild bitterness. Recommended! Bottled 10/8
