What a beautiful beer! The presentation may be the highpoint of this brew. Pours a chill hazed pale amber (that clears as it warms) producing 3+ fingers of frothy, lasting, pale beige head that leaves heavy rings & webs of thick lacing with a chunky, 1.5 inch mound-like cap. Aroma is pale malt, grain, toast & caramel in a background of earthy herbal & thin citrus hops. Taste is similar but is more balanced: sweet pale malt, grain & caramel fronted it rapidly transitions to a balanced malt & hop bitterness of herbal/floral & citrus from mid-sip through the spicy, resinous pine finish that increases to produce a nicely bitter, pine, grain & toast aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, silky & smooth with a nice peppery finish & grainy, astringent aftertaste.

Classic west coast hop aroma. Lots of pine, resin, orange, grapefruit and earthy notes. Taste follows with bitter orange peel, pine resin, earthy hop notes and grapefruit aftertaste. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a really classic, well made IPA. Bitter, hoppy and tasty.

From a 12oz can at the beach.

Very raw bitterness that lingers long after. Needs a some fruit presence in the hops to score it higher but a nice IPA regardless

Overall a very decent beer picked up at Currituck BBQ. Good, creaminess but with 5 different hop varieties the taste felt muddled. Mix of both citrus and pine and then maybe a touch too much malt. Not bad, not great.
