They started to sell this ipa at my local ALDI for a cheaper price than if i would go buy it at a local food lion or harris teeter so i picked up a six pack. I did try this beer before but never rated it. To me this ipa has perfect balance. Not to boozie, or too bitter, even though i like bitterness once and a while. It is basically a good overall ipa that has a great bitterness to sweet malty balance and i would recommend to everyone that enjoys a good ipa.

This IPA was shockingly good and quite lives up to it's name. Very small amount of bitterness and more so of a sweet, floral and full flavored in the hop range. All in all, this is another amazing good brew from North Carolina with a perfect balance of all things bitter, sweet and full of flavor and richness. You'll find no watery weakness in this IPA.

Solid IPA. Hoppy, very carbonated. Not a ton of complexity but still very strong and flavorful.
