Had on tap. It tastes good, don't get me wrong, but it falls short for me as an ipa. Not nearly enough hop character in the taste or in the body. Good amount of malt and sweet finish than usual. Again tasty, but rated as an ipa it isn't complete enough

Had this at the brewery. Pours nice filtered amber color with a small head. Had a nice malt backbone and not much hop bitterness. A definite English style IPA. Good but just another IPA. Nothing special about this.

My favorite IPA. Drinkable, huge aroma and flavor, but almost no juicy haze.
Aroma: Very Strong hop presence with citrus/spice/mellon/spice
Taste: Absolutely delicious with balanced malt backbone and intense hops
Appearance: Light orange with minimal haze.
Overall: Will drink every time I visit NC.

Holy mackerel. Massive hops without destroying my tongue.
Appearance: Slight haze, amber.
Aroma: Hops - Citrus, melon, pine - all there.
Taste: Very well balanced malt to hops. Lots of flavor without assertive bittering.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, medium body.

Very good IPA. This is my first review on this site. I have had IPAs from all over the US and this is one of the best I have ever had. Aroma is awesome, flavor is awesome, perfect bittering without leaving that nasty coating on my tongue. Great beer.
