Had at a recent bottle share @ South Fork deli, Cramerton NC - decent but largely unremarkable beer.

After reading the other reviews I was hesitant to try this. However I think it's a fine beer. I don't know why everyone is so down on it. Someone said it's really a mild pale ale. There's a complete hop inflation in these styles. Aren't Bass and Harp pale ales?

This has a fine amount of IBU. It's not a hop bomb, but rather more nuanced and sessionable.

I really enjoy this.

Appearance: Light burnt orange color with a mildly hazy body covered by a thick off white head that sticks around for a while, the head eventually thins out into a thick and dense lacing around the glass.
Smell: Light floral aromas followed by hops and strong grapefruit and other citrus zest fruits.
Taste: Spicy and hops dominate but towards the middle of swallowing the malts kick in and balance out the IPA. The citrus zest also come out a bit more as it warms up.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp and very refreshing, fully carbonated.
Overall: This makes for a great introductory IPA

Color- murky light amber. Slight head.

Aroma- a mild hop nose.

Taste- a mild malt forward IPA, more like an English ESB than an IPA. Very relaxed brew and the ABV of 7.1% is well masked. Only 43 IBUs.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 5/23/2014. Purchased locally in Austin from HEB (Hancock Center) in late March 2014.

A: hazy orange. decent head and retention.

S: slight floral hops. cane sugar, sweet malt.

T: lightly hopped. distinct magnum hop. strong malt backbone. yeast characteristics very present.

F: i would prefer a bit more carbonation to make the beer a bit more crisp.

O: a decent beer. nothing special. nothing terrible.
