From the tap:
Look: Golden orange color with nice 1" white head; very hazy and opaque.
Smell: Hints of mango, orange, grapefruit.
Taste: Very tasty with hints of tropical orange/grapefruit, slightly dry with a little bitterness at the end.
Feel: Medium to heavy body; smooth and creamy. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: Probably my favorite newly discovered beer this year. Very drinkable and highly recommended.

Thanks to Mr. Beer_Economicus for this Charlotte beauty.
Pours a vibrant orange to golden hue. Opaque. Fluffy white head rises about 2 fingers in height. Scattered lacing.
Smell is bright citrus. Orange zest, floral lemon, and a fluffy oatmeal grain note. Very inviting.
Taste follows along. The flavor really does move in unison with the mouthfeel. The lite, fluffy delivery of such smooth citrus notes is quite satisfying. The finish is almost bitter, but definitely juicy.
Overall, a notable hazy. It is more nuanced hazy IPA, and I like that.

On tap at the brewery. Get there EARLY to get a park. My favorite draft IPA to date, smooth and power-flavors with excellent finish. Great staff at Heist let me sample others without asking. Highest recommendation! Also got some 16 oz cans for my homeboys as I live 259 miles away

Citra hops shine through. Bitter finish that lingers for a bit. Juicy mouthfeel.

Canned 07/06/18, so 10 days ago.

A: Pours a light orange, sort of orange juice like, completely opaque, with a third finger of off white head. Leaves some waves of lacing on the glass, with pretty good retention.

S: Fleshy orange, pink grapefruit, a bit of mango/guava, and very light grainy-ness. Very well constructed, though not exactly bursting with flavor.

T: Pink grapefruit and orange, fairly dry which tends to accentuate the medium-light bitterness through the finish. A bit less bitterness or a bit of sweetness to balance it would go a long way.

M: Silky smooth medium body but with what seems like a bit of gritty hop matter. Medium-light carbonation. Fairly creamy.

O: Tasty, very drinkable IPA, kind of on the lighter and (somewhat, for a NE IPA) more bitter end.

Strong citra aroma and low bitterness. Super fruity and extremely cloudy. Great beer, love heist. Definitely one of the best breweries in Charlotte
