I enjoyed their I-77 IPA the first few times I had it. Then it suddenly became inconsistent at various bars/restaurants I went to. It started tasting flat or water downed to me. It's shame they couldn't survive with Charlotte having such a thriving craft beer scene now with the likes of NoDa, Birdsong, Olde Meck, Triple C and others. Their taproom situation didn't help matters either.
