First of all, this is the correct listing. Natty Greene's is located in Greensboro.

A. Caramel gold color to it. Completely opaque with a nice foamy head and lacing. I think there was some extra yeasty sediment, as there was an off-color brown mixed into the head.

S. Has a strong hoppy, almost weed-like scent.

T. It has a caramel-like sweetness to it. It is quite hoppy with a hint of lemon. It has a slight sour aftertaste.

M. Carbonated with a tart hint.

O. It is a nice, flavorful IPA. Really delicious. It has the qualities that I look for in an IPA: Strong hops, a sweetness, mild sour. A bit more of a floral kick and it'd be damn perfect.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, goldenrod coloring with a filmy, clingy, bright white head. Aromas of cut grass, pine tassels, resin, bitterness, grapefruit, and lemon. Very robust nose. Flavors are tart, crisp, and peppered on the forward tongue, with a pitchy resin character quickly following behind. Heavy citrus backbone of grapefruit and lemon. The spicing gets heavy towards the tail-end of the palate, and it builds as you drink. Smooth, light body kept dry by the hops characteristics. The aftertaste is more of the green hops characteristics, with bitterness, spice, and floral characteristics. Dry, slightly effervescent, crisp finish, with a lemony linger.

12 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass

A - hazy and about the color of peach juice with a large foamy white head, great retention and great lacing.

S - powerful nose with big lemon and bready notes

T - hop forward with a weak malt profile with a sour lemon taste and a tart spicy finish. There is some alcohol present.

M - kind of thick for a beer of this sort

O - pretty average

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy amber color with a finger of creamy off colored head that leaves a generous layer on top of the pour.

Smell: Sweet grain with come citrus peel hops. Less hoppy than expected, but the balance is pleasing.

Taste: There is a very nice balance here too. The malt sweetness and citrus hops work well together. The finish is rather bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with not enough carbonation and a finish that is quite dry.

Overall: I thought the hops would be more prevalent here, but I rather enjoyed the beer. I would have another.
