Brewed with an abundance of fresh Citra and Cascade, this IPA boasts a big biting hop profile layered with ripe tropical fruit, juicy citrus, and pine.

Hazy gold with medium carbonation and 2 fingers of white head.

Smells of cantaloupe and red grape.

Tastes of pineapple, peach and smoothness.

Light and smooth body with light carbonation.

Got in Canton, drinking it up the mountain June 25, 2020.

Drinking this at a local tap house, Tapped in Greenville NC.
This is a review that I changed because the original review was based on a can, and this one on tap, much better on tap!
Poured from tap into a pint glass.
Looks light amber with a head that dropped quickly.
Smells very lightly malt, citric hoppy.
Tastes citrus forward with good balance of malt for the style.
Mouth feel is medium light.
Overall yes I would drink again.

Looks a little cloudy - nice full head with staying power.
Smell - I'm liking it. It's got the piney/floral nose that I like. Lacks a little "oomph" of the best IPA's, but still above average.
Taste - well done for an IPA. Got the soft-needle pine and hint of citrus - grapefruit comes though, the good kind though not the bitter yellow grapefruit. Something else in there I can't quite figure...perhaps tangerine?
Feel - a little slimey...odd something I've never had with an IPA. It is fresh, in case you were wondering.
Overall - just outside my "top tier" IPA's. A damn good beer. Well done, Catawba!

P.S. Drinking this in Florida during the winter while I'm slathered in sunblock. And I to NOT taste sunblock. :-)
