reviewed on 6.19.12. from notes. 12 oz bottle, bottled on 5.7.12.

A: a very hazed, opaque reddish blond body. slightly off-white head is very frothy and leaves thick tufts along the side of the glass. good retention.

S: fruit and cereal on the nose. fruity pebbles? melon, papaya, juniper berries. some sort of soft herbal sweetness i cant exactly put my finger on....

T: starts sweet and fruity, very similar to the nose. a single bitter note throughout. a little bit of hop astringency towards the finish leaves the palate a bit more unsatisfactory.

M: lower carbonation makes for an almost "nitro"-like carb. medium body.

D: not a bad IPA, but that unwanted lingering hop astringency is a bit of a turn-off. otherwise, super solid nose makes this pretty inviting.

Pours a golden/orange with a finger and a half head. Nice lacing on the glass.

Smells of citrus and a little floral aroma.

Citrus and tropical fruit on the front end with a nice malt balance in the middle. Finishes well with a nice grapefruit aftertaste. Bitterness lingers a little but is not over the top.

Mouthfeel is solid, medium with good carbonation.

A really nice, easy drinking IPA.

Served this 12 oz brown bottle in a Sam Adams glass. Bottled on: 012712 (consumed mid April). Review from notes. The body was a hazy apricot color. The white head was modest and left freckles of lace and a ring on the surface.

The smell was earthy. Tropical fruits and later wet hay.

The taste was a sharp citrus with light sweetness. There were enough malts to carry the bitterness. Solid construction and very easy to drink. This one exceeded expectations.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied and modest but enough carbonation. I would buy this often if it were available to me.

A- Thanks to my buddy Trask for this brew

A-yellow orange in color with a finger head that is about an average frothiness. The lacing does stick to my pint though.

S-a sweet hop aroma mixed with some hints of pine. I get some sort of orange maybe tangerine. light biscuity malt as well.

F- A dry tangerine flavor with a sopy pine finish.

M-dry fruity and piney

0- this is a decent IPA. I could drink a few of these. It was a nice IPA for relaxing with.

12oz bottle dated 12/14/11.

Pours hazy copper with an inch-plus head of white. Plenty of tattered lacing and a solid skim coat on the surface for the duration.

Aromatics are a blend of biscuity malt and a hint of pine. Hops are quite subdued for an IPA.

Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel.

Plump and husky malt lead off the palate with some pine bark following through. A decent amount of bitterness but hop flavors are muted.

Finishes with sweet malt, lingering bitterness, and pine bark.

This beer needs more hops in the nose and on the palate. The malt base is also hinting at some wet cardboard already.

Purchased a loose bottle from Whole Foods in Raleigh. Poured into a Sam glass on a hot Sunday afternoon.

A: Somewhere between straw and a copper. Thin, lacey head.

S: Smell is sweet with only a suggestion of any hop content. Didn't expect that from an IPA. Sneak attack?

T: Well-balanced, tasty IPA, although pretty light on hops for what people consider an IPA in these heady days.

M: Thin, but not overly so. Just thick enough to give it a nice body.

O: Not a bad beer at all. It doesn't exist solely to showcase its hops like many IPAs, but instead comes off as a well-balanced beer for a lazy Sunday afternoon that exists in that spectrum of IPAs that aren't too far removed from their Pale Ale and APA brethren.

Fills a tulip glass with a honey amber that becomes murky at the end of the pour. The quarter inch head is creamy, off-white, and long lasting. A fair amount of webbing is left behind.

This one has an odd, light cantaloupe and soapy aroma, that, while mild, is off-putting. The hop aromas are far too subtle for an IPA.

Bitterness is quite high with tangerine flavors. The tangerine returns late and sweet in the finish, which progresses back to a mild bitterness and lingers.
A full body, dry, with soft cotton texture, fizzy carbonation and a quick, sharp bite.

Enjoyable in the afternoon, however, while sharpness adds interest, it does detract from overall drinkability.
