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. It’s aroma is sweeter than I feel an ipa should be, but it’s not bad. The bitter hoppiness isn’t quite there, but it’s drinkable and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Soft but tempting aroma with an amber orange pour and a surprisingly hoppy taste and almost warming mouthfeel.

Hey! Wow! I tried this beer a few months ago, but I was too lazy to get the information in order to add it to the RareBeer database (Thanks Walter!) This was one of the first beers I drank after turning 21 this year. And being from Asheville, the APC is a primary source of booze for many college students such as myself. This is a great beer. Honestly, I think I like it better than the Shiva, although the Shiva is a classic APC beer... What more can I say? Next time you’re at the Asheville Pizza Company, try the Shiva first, but then try the Red Light if it’s available. This is a great ale. Banzai!!!

Draft, Asheville Pizza and Brewing Co., Asheville NC. Medium golden color. Slight hops and sweet malts on the nose. Medium body with mild bitter hop flavor and even keeled maltiness. Crisp finish. The commercial description is pretty well right-on. I lean toward the highly hopped and alcohol-sweet IPAs, which this is not; but it’s a fine brew in its own right.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at APBC. Pours hazy amber with a medium thick head . Excellent balance of hoppy bitterness with the slight maltiness. Slightly grainy but with a lasting hoppy kick in the finish. This is one of my favorite brews and in my opinion the best brew Asheville Pizza has to offer..

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.
