Can. Pours a clear deep gold with a light tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of pine and light citrus and an earthy grain backing. Flavor has earhy grains and pine with a good amount of earthiness.

Clear orange with a white whispery head. Grapefruit is prevalent in aftertaste. Got some pucker bitter beer face aftertaste. The mouthfeel is nice and drinkable.

Pours a clear golden orange from the can with pillowy off-white head that dissipates to leave little to no lacing. Aroma of fresh hops, earthy, piney, a hint of citrus, with some caramel and pale malt back. Taste follows, malt comes through more, as well as the earthiness, clean bitter finish that is pretty quick to leave. Meh, alright.

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.

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.

Well balanced, floral aroma, easy finish for an IPA. Asheville’s best IPA by far. Love it, love it, love it!
