COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We conceived this beer to entice the sinner and saint in each of us, following one simple rule: you can never have too much of a good thing. So we took mountains of Crystal, Wheat, and Munich malts and paired them with huge handfuls of Cascade and Tradition hops for an irresistibly wicked beer that’s at once temptingly sweet and scandalously bitter, with a full body and deep red color. Go on, treat yourself a little and ask for the happy ending.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a slightly hazy copper color with a white head. The aroma was of malts and some citrus hops. The taste was of malts, some toast and a bitter citrus finish.

Draft to taster at the Coxe Ave brewpub. Looks good; a very slightly hazy golden orange with eggshell head. Smells of hops and pale malt; a little sweeter than I’d prefer though. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

Cybercat (3200) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a decent ivory head. Aroma is not strong, but has malty and fruit opponents. Malty flavor is a bit fruity. Texture has typical fizz and thickness. Fair to middling but worthy.

Decent, but not my favorite. Pours a nice deep orange color with a decent head. Taste is pretty full on malts and hops with a decent balance. Think the mouthfeel sort of threw me off on this one. Really full and oily- just seems too big for the style of beer. Or more than I was expecting. Definite IPA flavors with grapefruit and pine and caramel. Decent. Would try again knowing what to expect.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 11, 2013
This poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is slightly bitter with a citrus presence. There is some caramel and dark fruits in the background. Overall a nice session beer.

Beer #2 at Asheville Brewing. Great cascade aroma with a subtle maltiness. The hop flavor paired with the Munich malt backbone makes this a tasty brew. The residual bitterness lingers a bit after the malt subsides.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Beer #5 Asheville trip. Billed by the brewpub as an IPA, which I think fitted nicely. Again, pretty textbook. Deeper orange than Shiva. A touch more caramel accent, and again, grapefruit and pine. Liked it a tad more than Shiva.

beerme31 (478) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Draft. Pours dark golden thin lacing. Nice aroma of citrus and floral. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, medium bitter hop finish. Nice balance and good pale ale overall.

SpringsLicker (3116) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Draft at the Merrimon St location. Pours a light gold with a white head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Well supported hop bitterness that goes all the way to the finish. Very nice. Better than many IPAs and most Pale Ales. My second glass was the IPA and the Old School was the better of the two by far.

Draft at the brewpub. Orange with a white foamy head. Floral, citrus aroma. Citrus, caramel, grassiness.
