Solid IPA. Feel is a bit weak for the taste and power of the beer. Do not hesitate to try it. These guys are on to something in NC.

I'm normally someone who prefers the malt, but when I'm in the mood to disregard the malt and double up on hops, this is my go-to!

Initial smell is grapefruit and pineapple with some pine. The flavors are much the same, quite a bit of hoppyness, but not too bitter, very easy to drink. The flavor calms down as the beer warms, you get a little more pine resin and a more subtle bitter hop flavor.

Overall, one of the best IPAs I've ever had!

Thanks to nc41 for this one from his box in NBS BIF #8. 12oz bottle poured into 16oz Budweiser goblet (hey, it was the best thing available where I was house-sitting!). Poured a hazy straw yellow color with 3/4 inch of of white head that had good retention and moderate lacing.

The aroma was mostly hops, grapefruit and some floral, with a very low malt presence. very similar on the tongue, all hops with no counterbalancing grains.

The body was just on the thin side of medium, fairly typical and had a dry finish. Drinkability was fine, as are most examples of the style. Overall, a fairly typical example of the style, worth trying if you see it.

Had draught in pint glass and was surprised at the clear yellow pour. Lacing is great and this beer is so nice to drink. Love the smell and taste is perfect blend of citrus and bitterness. Too easy to drink lol I already need another.
