12 ounce bottle -> World Market Tulip Glass

This beer pours up a hazy light gold with a small 1/2 finger head, poor retention, and lots of elaborate lacing. Nose is mostly pine and citrus. Taste is very hop forward and very bitter which is exactly what I think they were going for. Mouthfeel is full (but not thick) and satisfying. Much recommended!!!!

A: Pours a cloudy golden orange in color with some darker orange highlights and light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a few small slightly thicker patches and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with slightly stronger aromas of pine and citrus rind hops.

T: Upfront it tastes lightly to moderately of pale malts and caramel malts with just a touch of breadiness and very light amounts of sweetness. After the malts, there is a moderate amount of hop flavors that come through - citrus rind and pine stand out for the hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fade rather quickly.

M: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: This has the flavors, aromas, and mouthfeel to be a sessionable IPA though it might be a little too heavy in the ABV to truly be sessionable - I would be happy to have a couple of these in a sitting though. Nice and enjoyable, easy to drink. A little maltier than I expected for the style but that was a bit of a pleasant surprise.

Poured into a pint glass. A hazy, unfiltered orange color with a thick off-white head that laces the sides of the glass.

Toasted biscuit malt with a very tame citrus hop aroma.

Flavor is much different than the aroma. The biscuit malts really let the hop come through. The hop is mostly earthy/grassy and herbal with a lingering grassy hop in the finish. There are some fruity (grape, peach) notes to the beer also. Finishes rather clean with a slight bitter bite.

Very smooth and silky feel to this beer. Medium bodied and perfectly carbonated.

Very drinkable IPA given the high ABV%.

I had this from a cask from Mother Earth Bewing in Kinston NC. I have had it both a bottle and on draft but this review is from cask.

The color was a yellow with a slight opaqueness to it. The smell is hoppy and it had a better taste than in the other formats. I would love to know what hops they used for this beer. My best guess would be cascade or perhaps Columbus. That is speculation of course. Upfront you taste the malts and then the hops kick in. The body is on the lower side but this could be a great session beer and would hit the spot on a hot North Carolina summer on ice in a cooler at a baseball game or at a boat dock.

I would recommend to anyone who is in or near the Kinston area.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a 1 finger head with nice lacing.

S: The smell isn't as strong as I had hoped. I'm actually getting more malts than hops.

T: The taste follows the smell. It's a mix of malt and hops, but I'm getting more malt. It's somewhat balanced, but not on the side that I would prefer.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer, but definitely not what I look for in an IPA. If you like your IPA's on the malt heavy side then this is for you.

Poured a hazy light orange hue with one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell and taste featured a barrage of sweet malts and perhaps some tropical fruit.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a decent malt driven IPA.
