Poured on tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, vibrant, crysyal clear, caramel-copper coloring. Aromas of trppical fruit, caramel, pine, subtle spice, and subtle resinous characterostics. Flavors are bitter and resinous forward, with tropical fruits close behind. Tangy and slightly bitter, with a heavier pine tassel and pitch characyer at the end. Pretty well balanced on a smooth, mid-body. Aftertaste is more of the caramel and resin, with a trace of the tropical sweetness. Slick, slightly dry, bitter finish.

Serving type: on-tap

@ White Street

Clear golden color topped with a tight, thick head. Decent lacing rings the glass. Aromas of orange, lemon, and pineapple, all crusted with sugar and joined by some light floral and grass and a bit or cracker malts. Flavor is hoppy: grapefruit, pineapple, green pine, and some oily, leafy dankness. Medium bodied and bitter with a dry finish. A solid, bright IPA.

7.5% ABV per growler label.Nice to try a beer from yet another new brewery here in NC.Pours into an imperial nonic a clear copper color with a frothy half finger white head atop.A blast of grapefruit rind-lie hops really jump out at ya in the nose at first whiff,faint toasted grain is detected as well.I really like the blast of hops upfront.The hops are a little more subdued on the palate but there is a nice shot of that grapefruit rind and a bit of resin as well,a sweetish caramel/biscuit base is there thru to the finish,a tinge of sweet alcohol lingers as well a little pepperiness seems to com into play as I drink more as well.A solid "bigger" IPA here,I look forward to trying more of White Street's wares in the future.
