3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4oz on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Nice, citrusy peppery grapefruity aroma. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. light slick finish. Medium to bigger body. Grapefruit citrus, mild spiciness. Some pepperiness. Medium-plus sweet taste, mild tang. Moderate-plus bitterness. A solid, zesty, juicy resiny IPA. Amazing hop on this, now that I re-rate. Deserving of the 3.7.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Somewhat soft golden pour with one finger of off-white head. Nose has a buttery/cooked peach note to it with notes of overripe fruit and a touch of garlic. Kind of muddled in the flavor with butter and cooked peaches at the forefront with a touch of cherry and a piney note. Medium bodied with a very moderate bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company (Merrimon Ave), 1/3/15
Aroma: It has a nice citrus and fruity hop aroma, with some resin and pale malt notes
Appearance: Pours a bright, clear gold color, with a nice, lasting white head and heavy lacing
Flavor: The flavor is lightly sweet, much like the nose, with a nice, clean bitterness
Palate: It has a light-medium body, is very easy drinking, and has a lightly dry finish
I found this to be a really enjoyable one. Great looking beer. Nice aroma and flavor as well. Drinks cleanly and very easily. Works well with the pizza.

Bober--wow, some top drawer stuff. Purchased the bottle at the Merrimon location after our first disappointing meal at ABC. Hazy amber color with a small white head, but left lots of lacing. Deep pine resin aroma with a background of grapefruit. Nice citrus taste with some caramel sweetness. Nice balance with a slight bitter finish. Medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Expected to like it more- bit of an off/ overly bitter finish to me. Pours on the orange side of yellow., Nose is citrus and tropical (citra) with some hints of white wine. Taste is fairly balanced with a dank feel. Definitely hoppy as advertised. Could be too much sweetness in the hops for me between tropical notes of citra and sweetness of El Dorado. Somewhat tempered by Nelson Sauvin. Not my favorite IPA. Will try again to like it more.
Attempt #2. On tap at Buffalo Nickel. Better than I remembered. Decently balanced- nice finish to it. Definitely lives up to the IPA label. Not outstanding, but pretty darn good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at the Coxe Ave brewpub. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with thin foamy eggshell head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells solid; fruity hops with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
