Thanks to Rusel_G for the bottle.

Appearance: Clear dark copper. Tiny off-white head drops to a small collar with no lingering cap. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Big caramel malt sweetness with some backing toasted notes. Some toffee and biscuit. Cooked and caramelized malts Hops runs a bit tropical, mango and grapefruit. More earthy and herbal than anything. Nicely balanced. Decidedly easy coast, but in a way that I'm starting to think is unique to NC. Slight toasted element.

Taste: Light caramelized malt backbone. Breadier than the nose indicated. Slightly toasted. Some bread crust and caramel malt. Hops are super earthy with a slight herbal undertone. Leafy and a bit dirty. Lingering mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with a slightly below average carbonation. Clean.

Overall: Somewhere in the first circle.

A mellow and approachable IPA, if you can even call it that. Hits in that session IPA territory, but it's decent.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Appearance: pours with a 2” fluffy cream colored head. Significant lacing and moderate carbonation. Color is a reddish brown and slightly cloudy.
Aroma: floral and some citrus hops dominate the aroma with pungent hop oil very noticeable. There is also a toasted bread malt smell.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. This finishes mostly dry.
Flavor: bitter hops combine with a somewhat ‘burnt toast’ flavor from the malts, but there is enough sweetness to maintain some balance. There is definite grapefruit taste along with some earthy and floral character hops. The malts hide in the middle and background with some whole wheat bread toast and hints of caramel and slight green apple.
