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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: a nice perfect clarity orange. With a finger of white head that slowly fades to nothing.

Smell: strong hop aroma. Citrus, floral, some herbal. The citrus is strongest

Taste: citrus, floraly, herbal hops. A nice pale malt background. Malts are there to balance and showcase hops

Mouthfeel: a good bitterness that is there but not over powering. Good medium body.

Overall: a pleasant and good drinking IPA. Well brewed and I would drink more if I got the chance more often

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.

Color is auburn, dusty and hazy looking with a 3/4" white head of both large and small bubbles. Aroma is upfront grassy citrus - kind of homebrewy/yeasty. 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... It gets better as you get into it, but could also use some refining.

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

Murky chestnut sort of color with a beautifully thick, white head. Yeasty aromas at first, sort of homebrew-like, opening up over time to reveal grass, pungent citrus, peach, mango, and passion fruit. Hoppy flavor, more old-school feeling, with spicy pine, tea, lemon, grapefruit, lime, and not much malt. Not overwhelmingly hoppy, just pleasant so. Green, solidly bitter, some trailing spiciness, not super fruity. Medium bodied, sporting a little creaminess. Not bad. Citra seems to be doing the least out of the three "Cs" used here.
