Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, honey-gold coloring, with a fluffy, white head. Nose of strong citrus notes, subtle pine characteristics, and hints of bitterness. Flavors are citrus forward, with grapefruit and lemon, followed by pine resin and tassel notes. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Smooth, mid-bodied, with a resinous and lightly peppered aftertaste. The finish is effervesced, slightly dry, and bitter. Refreshing and crisp beer.

This IPA is unfiltered and loaded with hops with an IBU of 75! The color is a nice hazy golden amber and an aroma that hits you like a brick. "An Anglo-American-style IPA, with a carefully blended floral and citrus aroma. A mouthful of hop flavor is complimented by a malty backbone, leaving you with a subdued lingering bitterness."

Enjoying on this cold day in Black Mountain, NC. Poured from a bomber sample from brewery into a snifter here at home. About an inch of head after the initial pour, disappears after a minute or two. Nice lacing. Initial nose of fresh lemon peel and orange. Medium bitterness at the end, large notes of pine (I think all this has been said before). Very crisp and bright. A beautiful golden orange hue. These guys are doing some big things. Just got the porter on tap where I work, and it's quality as well. Hopefully I can bring this one on soon too. Well done.
