COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The destroyer, the creator, the benefactor. Shiva is all these things. We set out to create an IPA that anyone can enjoy, and we think we succeeded. As the flagship beer in our lineup, we’ve yet to encounter a soul who believes contrary. A crisp, citrusy Indian Pale Ale with a light color, Shiva will destroy all your preconceptions of an IPA. A transcendentally simple malt bill accents a generous helping of Columbus hops, lending an intense floral aroma with hints of grapefruit and a pleasant bittering quality. Your palette will be lifted to higher planes of consciousness with a bittersweet finish.

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

Ratman197 (9034) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Can poured a hazy gold with lasting off white head. Aromas of floral notes, orange, passion fruit, grapefruit zest and tangerine. Palate was light bodied and smoth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, orange, pnk grapefruit and light passion fruit with a smooth dry lightly biter lingering fruity finish.

Draft. Hazy golden color medium white head. Aroma of floral and citrus. Enjoyable sweet flavor up front. Crisp finish, very mild bitter with fruit notes. Overall nice beer a little more bitter finish would be nice.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Can sampled at GABF 2012 with Andrew and Morea. Aroma is bitter citrus and light pine. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with tons of caramel malts, slightly unbalanced, with backing flavors of citrus and very light grass.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2012
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.

beernbourbon (1264) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Six Pack of cans thanks to some random kIndness, thanks! Color is light copper with a small white head. Aroma is light pineapple, cookie malt, faint pine and a light yeast note. Flavor true to nose. A little disjoInted. Starts off with a hop kick and finishes with lager-like malt and yeast. Light and easy to drink though.
