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.

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...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Poured hazy brownish orange. Nice hoppy fresh grain aroma. Adequate body for the style. Crisp, grassy hops with a hint of grapefruit. Light nutty malt. Long lightly bitter grapefruit finish. An enjoyable beverage and with a name like “red light” (as in district) you can’t go wrong for #420.
