Cloudy orange color with slight lace.. A/T pine, orange, slight bready malt.. The hops are unbalanced with the malt.. The bitterness finishes harsh without much malt to follow.. It's ok but I would never get this IPA again.

on tap at pangea in Avon,NC clear golden orange with a thin head, smell's of citrus,tangerine and slight mango, taste follows the nose but with a more biiter rind of citrus,lower carbonation with a bitter dry finish, tgis is a good IPA worthy of a try its just not one im seeking out

A: crystal clear; bronze in color; 1 finger off white head that receded to an uneven cap; nice lacing;

S: pine, with a little tropical fruit and cat pee;

T: pine up front; cat pee comes in at mid-palate and stays through the finish with a little floral added in as well; moderate bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; medium dry finish;

O: an odd combination of flavors that would each be fine in their own;
