L: Light golden color with a big white head that really lasts.
S: Hops and more hops, then a little pine and maybe a hint of a sweeter malt.
T: A blast of piney hops and resin and then more hops in the finish.
F: A little on the lighter side of an IPA, but it does have a dry finish which I like.
O: Really liked this IPA. Since the west coast IPA is my favorite style and I live in cali I usually find others attempt at this style lacking. This one however had everyone a good west coast IPA has, the look, smell and taste are really great.

Pour was a yellowish Amber color with a one finger head. Smell is grapefruit rind, orange ring with a little pine. The taste follows the smell. Pretty much a medium feel on the mouth. Overall a good IPA that I personally think was a great IPA a couple of years ago.

This beer varies in appearance for me. I'm only back in NC once or twice every twelve months. Most recent at Charlotte airport, it appeared a golden copper color. As always, the hops are strong at the front. Though I can smell the citrus, I can't taste it much over the hops. Not as much malt, but as a fan of floral IPAs, I'm okay with that. The beer lacks the citrus punch I really enjoy in my IPA, but this one keeps me coming back. I always seek it out everytime I'm in NC. It's a must try if you're passing through. For those of you passing through the Charlotte airport, it's always on tap at 1897 Market just outside of the B terminal.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high fluffy white head that died down but consistently left a head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose along with hints of citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell, but has a little less in the way of pine and some more in the way of citrusy hops. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has very nice aromas and flavors. It is rather easy to drink.

Serving type: can

On Tap. Pours a hazy golden orange color. Smells of strong hops and citrus: grapefruit, orange, peach, mango and others. Thin lacing leaves the sides of the glass as it goes down. Enjoyed at a pub nearby the brewery so I know it had to be fresh. Tastes very hoppy up front with a crisp grapefruit backing with orange undertones. Strong ABV that doesn't hit hard at all. Can enjoy a few without hurting afterword. Good, smooth, mouthfeel with a nice finish. Overall a great example of the style and a good beer.
