Soft but tempting aroma with an amber orange pour and a surprisingly hoppy taste and almost warming mouthfeel.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, sampler: it pours a nice orangey color with a white head. Itís aroma is sweeter than I feel an ipa should be, but itís not bad. The bitter hoppiness isnít quite there, but itís drinkable and refreshing.
