Poured from a can. A very good looking copper color which makes you want to drink it. Smells clean. Slight head retention. Drinkable, fairly balanced, crisp and finishes with a peppery aftertaste. I'm glad I gave it a try. Cheers!

Drink local. Regional IPA is dtinkable, but not exceptional. Out of a can into glass, this ale does not have a head or hold lace. I don' t drink a beer for its look or smell, but for its taste and feel. There is not much to distinguish this shot at bitter ale from many others, but when in North Carolina, it's worth a try. Pine resin seems to dominate the hops, but that is charcteristic of many east coast efforts. Good attempt if west coast style citrus is not what you want.

S - Bitter hops

T - Nice mix of citrus and bitter hops. Hoppy up front but aftertaste is a little too metallic

F - Light bodied and medium carbonation

O - This one is better than the other reviews I read. Pretty good easy drinking IPA

A copper colored clear beer with a light tan head and almost no lacing. A malty and slightly citrus noise with a little bitter aroma. The taste is unremarkable with mostly malt and bitter. Was hoping to get some citrus based on the aroma but really just bitter without the benefits.
