This certainly seems to be a different Freedom than the one I've had brewed in Raleigh. This version features Nugget, Magnum, Horizon, Challenger, and Zythos.

Foggy amber-orange under a fat head of thick, milky froth. Aromas of mellow pale fruit, oranges, earthiness, and some malty sweetness. Juicy citrus and lots of fruity esters, some green spiciness, lime, tea, a touch of yeast. The bitterness is there, but something isn't quite right here yet. I think some tweaking can be done to improve this. I've had better versions on tap in Raleigh. The Horizon and Challenger aroma additions are curious for and American IPA...

Beer review from 7/9/2012 in the Outer Banks,NC: pours sea water cloudy orange color with a creamy 2 finger white head that faded and left a thick creamy layer on top and excellent lacing coating the sides and rings as it went down.

Smells of citrus hops, orange peel, grapefruit, floral hops, sweet malt, caramel and lightly roasted grains; rather sweet for an IPA and bordering on smelling like an English IPA.

Tastes of citrus hops, orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, floral hops, brown sugar, sweet malt, caramel, lightly roasted grains, biscuit, Tollhouse crackers, fruit like pear and light yeast; nice balance with the hops and malts complimenting each other and making a flavor that is a cross between an American IPA and English IPA.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with mild carbonation, a medium body and slightly bitter citrus finish. An average American IPA that might be misclassified, but still pretty good overall.

A: Hazy, dirty orange color with a two finger cream-white colored head. Lace initially looks like it'll stick but with a few swirls it fades away.

S: Sweet saltine cracker grains, floral candy, citrus, and some various tropical scents. Aroma as a whole is very soft, somewhat clean, and easy on the nose.

T: Light sweet malt, some fruity citrus hop, and more of a bitter hop presence than anything else. The balance isn't great on this but its still enjoyable. The freshness is key.

M: Basically smooth, stirred up by abundant carbonation, and complimented by the bitterness. Texture is lightly syrupy and a touch resinous. Medium-light body.

O: This is a pretty good beer. Not very exciting as an IPA, but refreshing and enjoyable as a summer beer. The title of this beer is a little off to me. I would expect something titled Freedom American IPA to be loaded with all sorts of hop flavor, and with a more creative edge. This IPA has characteristics reminiscent of a mellow English IPA. Not to mention this seems more like a Pale Ale.

3.5/5  rDev -0.6%

A - bright orange with a soft, thin layer of head; little retention

S - herbal, citrusy, piny

T - herbal, a bit bready, a bit spicy, bitter piny finish, some citrusy notes come through in the aftertaste - orange and grapefruit, aftertaste reminiscent of homebrew

M - crisp, a bit over carbonated, medium bodied, warm

This is an alright IPA. It has a nice hop character to it, but it comes across almost homebrewey. It has an odd aftertaste that the hops just can't seem to shake off. The balance is there as is the drinkability. It's not bad, but in a world full of great IPA's, I'd rather have something else.
