Wow. Have you ever heard of the saying "if something is too good to be true, it probably is"? THIS is the exception

I think the one I had at the WBF was aged in an oak barrel, which may have made it better. Whatever it was, excellent IPA.

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this one. Pours a hazy orange with a creamy off white lacing head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, caramel and just overall great fruity hop notes. Flavor of mango, other tropical fruits, orange, light caramel, light grapefruit. Really nice IPA that really highlights the yeast and hops.

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

Pretty mellowed down and balanced IPA. Straight from the cold spring mountain water. Good brew.

Cloudy orange with big, foamy white head / Light nose of hops and citrus / Light body, dry hops predominate with enough malt balance, and with good, bitter finish / Delicate, fresh flavors of dry hops, toast, orange, and grapefruit / A little more fruit and this is an outstanding beer.

Bomber pours clear deep gold with off white head. The aroma is spicy, earthy and nearly tart citrus hops with a faint sense of malt roast in the background. The taste is nice and refreshing going from spicy hops and bitter citrus to a touch of malt and graininess by about midway. I get a sense of earthy hops from front to back too. Into the finish the bitter citrus and spicy hops take over completely and fade away deep into the after taste. Nice IPA.

Strong, hoppy aroma has an overtone of somewhat sweet grapefruit and a touch of orange. It pours an attractive amber with a nice white head that leaves some decent lacing. Flavor has a strong grapefruit overtone that is more sour than sweet. Core of the flavor is hoppy with some malt and a floral hint. Though the sour and bitter flavors are strong and the sweetness is subtle, they complement each other nicely. Grapefruit finish has hoppy, malty and floral notes. Firm texture has quite a bit of fizz and leaves a fairly persistent tingle on the tongue and lips. And you gotta see the kewl art on the bottle!
