3.5/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Natty Greene's in Greensboro. Nice golden color with 1 finger head and some good lacing.

Smells of citrus, pine and some sweetness from the malt.

A bitter piney flavor up front with some citrus balanced by a good malt presence. Ends with a nice dry finish.

Carbonation was a little prickly at first but mellowed out as it warmed. Mouthfeel was medium.

Overall this is a solid offering, not spectacular, but good. Nice atmosphere outside on the patio at the brewpub. Definitely worth stopping by when in Greensboro.

Nice lacing on a clear honey golden colored IPA with a light citrus hippy aroma.

Very nice hops bite with a little bitterness coming through the orange citrus taste.

Nice smooth medium body with a light dry aftertaste with just a little of the citrus hops lingering on.

A drink worth the drive over from Winston-Salem.

I had this on tap at the brewpub in Greensboro.

A: I found it unusual that this brew had an amber color, with a mild cloudiness that was probably just a chill haze. It boasted a 1.5 finger webby and sticky, solid white head.

S: The nose was understated (as with most of Natty's brews that I've tried), but I did manage to get a tinge of melted Jolly Rancher and yeast.

T: This was highly successful as a SN "Celebration Ale" clone. While it's not quite as bitter as SN's awesome creation, the citrus and pine element was definitely there overall. This was quite tasty!

M: This was very creamy, bitter, smooth, with the carbonation level being perfect, and the lacing quite ridiculous.

O: I was pleasantly surprised by this one and I hope they continue to brew it!

A new IPA offering at Natty's in Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint glass a deep slightly hazed copper/bronze with a thinner white head that held pretty well.Aromas of herbal hop and light citrus mainly,not much of a malt presecen coming thru.Resiny and herbal hops at first sip really stick out,the malt presence starts to eek trhu after about mid glass lending a firm drybess making the beer quite dry all around.A decent IPA,it wont bowl you over with in your face hops but its a drinkable American style version of the style.
