12 oz.

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a yellowish white fluffy head which retains well.

Smells of fresh piney and floral hops over some biscuity malt.

Tastes of biscuity malts with piney bitter hops.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A pretty good flavorful IPA that drinks easy, but comes across a little boring in the taste. That aside, not bad and worth a try.

This is real beer. It is authentic. One of a kind, but easy to find. My new favorite go-to beer. Refreshing crisp taste. Always tastes fresh and not like it has been sitting on a shelf for a year. As far as IPAs go it isn't bitter or biting. It is balanced, smooth, and has great flavors. Goes well with most foods but also great on it's own.

On-tap at the Oxford in Raleigh, NC on 20 June 2014.

Pours clear medium amber. One finger of off-white head, good retention, fantastic lacing covering the inside of the glass.

Smell is faint, more earthy than anything else, with an herbal slant. Not much there.

Taste is just straight up plain bitter. Pretty one-dimensional. A little grain in front. Rather chalky. Meh

Feel is okay. Medium-heavy, enough carbonation. Unremarkable.

A simple, straightforward IPA. Not a whole lot to it, other than enough bitterness to cover any subtle flavors but not enough to be a palate wrecker.
