From tap. Pours a hazy straw color. Aroma was more pine then fruity for the hops. Slight sweetness. Taste was caramel malt, bread and hops. A little too much bittering.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer #4 Asheville trip. Basically, this is a textbook American IPA. Just read the BJCP style guidelines, and there it is. Deep gold orange appearance, well balanced mix of malts and citrus and pine oriented hops. Flavor and aroma match. Pleasant. If it had been a bit more citric than piney, I probably would have rated it higher. Very nicely constructed beer.

Can into a Lager glass. Pour is a light honey with a fine head. Aroma is a nice hop. Taste is a good bitter with light malt. Finish is a warm bitter. A good ipa, I wish it was in a bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This beer is an orange-amber color with a thin and creamy white head. Strings of lacing. Aroma of hops and citrus. Light to medium body with a mildly bitter citrusy hops character with some grassy and malty notes. The finish is hoppy with a fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.
