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.

Heavy hop note as expected. Floral notes. Dry finish. Underlying orange note

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

$7.49 / pint

Notes: Cloudy orange body with a brass cast beneath a short head of white that shows only average retention (might be a dirty bar glass). The aroma displays grapefruit, tangerine, and pine over a gently caramelish malt base. The flavor follows with the malt acting as a support for the hops. Medium bodied with a standard carbonation. Dry hoppy finish with some lingering pine.

Look is mostly filtered dark amber. Smell is dank citrus as your might expect. Pours a thick one once head. Taste is citrus and bready. Smooth in the mouth. Good beer.
