Enjoyed from the tall boy can in a snifter via a friend from work-----Thanks Bryan!

This nice IPA pours a crystal clear amber with a modest white head of dissipating foam that settles to a thin ring, light pooling layer, and light lacing. Nose of zesty hops with light pine and herbal notes, light tropical fruits of pineapple, and sweet caramel and honey malts. Flavors follow the nose with Honey and caramel malts up front that fade nicely to a light citrus pineapple note to the middle and then fading to a light herbal hop flavor that lingers for a short time and finishes clean and moderately dry. Moderate carbonation give a good mouth feel. Highly quaffable and a great starter or even better yet a fine session brew.

Cheers

tap at the brewery

Pours a clear medium gold. White film for a head retains well.

Smells of fresh grapefruit hops and honey.

Flavor is of grapefruit citrus and floral hops. Finishes with a grassy malt.

Medium body with a sting of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Standard IPA, good aroma and body. The flavor is a bit underwhelming but not bad in any way. Overall pretty decent. Not life-changing, but this would hit the spot if you're in need of an IPA.

Picked up a mini growler in waves, NC. I think (hope) that it was old, because this beer was not good. It was thin and watery with an earthy plant taste. No noticeable pine, citrus, or floral hops...
It poured the same color as a Heineken.

Honestly, it was a huge letdown.

This is avoiding a zero rating only because the beer might have gone bad at the store.

Nice buttery feel and a good bitterness that leaves you alone when it's finished

Draft in standard 12oz glass
Aroma – too weak to detect
Head removed by bartender/server – what remained was off-white and rapidly diminished to 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent – wide, nearly complete rings of small bubbles
Body light orange, clear
Flavor begins slightly bitter with no particular hop flavor (ie not piney, not resinous, not flowery, etc.); no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Ends weakly chalky and astringent.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

Definitely not hop-forward, but still an OK IPA.

Served on-tap at Weeping Radish Eco Farm & Brewery in Grandy, NC

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some honey + light orange highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops over lighter notes of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with just a touch of sweetness which is followed by light to moderate flavors of floral hops. Light amounts of bitterness which fades rather quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Thin/watery.

O: This beer is just a touch too thin/watery for it to be really enjoyable in my opinion and calling it an IPA, makes it a bit of a letdown since the hop flavors and aromas are rather light.
