REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light-orange peach into a pint glass. Unfiltered; lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head, good lacing. 4.75/5
Smell (25%): Assertive tropical citrus tangerine, lemon, and stone fruit. Also POG-like aromas (passion fruit, orange, guava) with complementing oaty malts. 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Follows the nose, extremely juicy/pulpy tropical citrus from start to finish. More citrus aftertaste. Oaty and pilsner malts work well here. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Very juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.25/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. I guess I need to take a trip to North Carolina in the near future, especially to Asheville. I had several amazing IPAs from North Carolina before, but this one is the first New England-style that I've had from the state. As expected, lots of tropical and mega refreshing. It might say 55 IBU, but probably drinks more like similar beers in the 25-30 IBU range. 4.5/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.488/5
