Love the label, so cool. Citra are amongst my favorite hops and cascades are a classic. The initial taste is very fruity and flavorful -however I wasn't a fan of the after taste, which reminded me of sun block. Yes - sun block. And quite a bit of it.

Looks like an IPA is supposed to look. Hazy light golden with great lacing and nice bits of stuff left over. Smells like walking in the pines while you carry a bag of oranges and tangerines on your back. Other than a little rough feel from a tab bit more carbonation than is needed, this is a great beer you should add to your buy again list.

Pours a hazed gold with a thumb of eggshell colored head. Fantastic lacing & head retention

S: Breadyness, citrus

T: Follows the nose, much dryness, orange peel up front. More dryness, a little orange & grapefruit once warm, Finishes with grapefruit, dryness, a little lime & tangerine, plus dryness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, good balance

Pretty tasty IPA, way to go Morganton, NC!
