There were sediments and mold all in the bottle. I know it's probably the distributors fault, but I really wanted to try this beer!

The whole 6 pack was severely flawed by a metallic taste, which can come from a variety of causes. The bottles had a bottled on field on the label, which were left blank. I have never tasted a beer with such a huge overwhelming metallic flaw as this one. I assume it was a bad batch, based on other reviews.

Average look and smell. Grapefruit overpowers the taste. Not bad.

Poured from a bottle into a pint
A: Orange yellow, the exact tint of bud. Small pencil with head that dissipates immediately. OK lacing.
S: yeast, generic "beer" of water and shitty hops, not good.
T: Just watery upfront with an unpleasant blend of alcohol and burnt something on the end.
M: Like flavored water, beer flavored water at least but not beer.
O: This is kinda gross. Nothing going on and no detectable hops. I guess it beats bud... barely.

(bottled on 2 10)
Pours a deep, amber-orange color, yet very clear when held to the light. Tiny bubbles rise to the top and form a thin, white head with great retention.

Very little aroma from this brew. I'd go so far as to say none.

Very slightly spicy hop bitterness at the tail. That's about it.

Has exactly the mouthfeel an IPA should have. Nothing more, nothing less.

This is highly drinkable. There is absolutely nothing standing in the way of drinking a lot of this except the alcohol content.

Hazy orange color in appearance, a thin head that sticks around for a little while but not a super long time.

Smells reasonably bitter, a little malty, nothing very interesting.

First impression in the mouth is just a plain, rather boring hoppy bitterness. A little sticky pine, but no real citrus or floral notes. The initial bitterness fades pretty quickly into a pretty malty flavor profile, some flavor that tastes almost like raisins. The aftertaste returns to unremarkable bitterness. As the beer warms a bit the malty flavors become more dominant and more unpleasant in a chewy cardboard kind of way. This beer is as malty as it is hoppy, and neither the hops nor the malt are particularly complex or appealing.

Decent carbonation, but the mouthfeel is a little weird in that there's an initial fizz of carbonation alongside the initial hop bitterness, but as the hops fade into malts the fizz also fades into a kindof flat nothingness.

Not a great beer. Drinkable, but not something I'd choose to drink again if I had other options. Honestly, I would have thought it was just an old bottle, as some of the symptoms of faded IPA are there, but I drank this beer about a week after the store got the shipment of it, and it's a reputable store that wouldn't be putting super old beer on the shelf.

5.0/10

Their copy reads" Prepare for a mouthful of flavor "
Expect to be disappointed.

Picked up a few of these at Sam's in Durham. Poured from the bottle into dimpled mug...

A: Bright orange, with a two-finger white head that dies down fast, but maintains a thin layer of foam; decent lacing.

S: I'm not getting a lot here... Some light caramel and bready malts; not much hop aroma - maybe some orange peel, but not much. Not indicative of your typical American IPA.

T: Malts up front... mainly bread crust and some sweetness, followed by a pretty crucial hop bite. Not the most enjoyable one, though - not really crisp - just a sharp, lingering bitterness that has no real character (no grapefruit peel / herby-ness / grass... although there is some earthiness and a little zest going on).

M: Medium-bodied and creamy; high carbonation; mouthfeel is this beer's strongest attribute, in my opinion.

D: More of an English IPA than an American IPA, but either way not very impressive. I was hoping for more from this new NC brewery.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Has a dark hazy amber color. The smell is ok but the taste is not my thing. My wife says it has a fruity medicinal flavor. I thought it had a bitterness taste and finish that was not flavorable. I have had plenty of beers from this brewer that I absolutely love but this is not one of them.
