3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This isn’t an IPA, but then the brewer does’t call it one. It should probably be listsed as American pale ale like it’t described in the description. Slighty toasted bread malt is balanced by a nice bitterness, but the aroma is a bit weak.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Hazy orange with a foamy, white head. Decent retention and great lacing.
Aroma: Slight pine notes, a little biscuit. Fairly straight forward.
Taste: Light biscuit notes from the malt side, Herbal, grass, and pine notes from the hops. Nice back bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light, dry mouthfeel.
Overall: This one seemed to have some alt characteristics to me. Still, a pretty decent brew.
Rebuy: If I happen to stop by the brewery I wouldn’t mind having another one of these.

draught. Pours a cloudy amber with a frothy white head. There’s grapefruit and a bit of pine in the nose. More grapefruit in the flavor, bit of twigs, some butter toffee, the hops are semi-biting. Not bad.

on tap at Asheville Pizza on 3/22. Nice standard IPA that doesn’t offer anything special or spectacular, but does it’s job well... a clean, slightly hoppy and refreshing beer that goes great with the wonderful pizza this place puts out...
