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.

Meh...a little substandard for a fresh ipa. Prefered every other hoppy brew they made to this. Lightly citrus floral and bitter, but boring.

Draft sample. The beer is a clear amber with a white head of foam. The aroma has some floral notes and some spice. Medium bitterness in the taste that finishes dry. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Can from Chris on his Carolina trip. Thanks! Pours copper with thinish off white head. Nose is hoppy with pine and citrus; grapefruit in the taste with that gf edge. All in all a decent if not outstanding brew.

Draft at Papa’s and Beer in Asheville, NC served in a pint glass; deep orangy-copper color with off-white head. Aroma notes of heavy citrus/grapefruity hops with some malt sweetness backing. Taste adds more rounded citrus zest notes and earthy grass. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with lingering citrus finish. Kind of a one dimensional grapefruit hop bomb but sometimes that’s nice.

On Tap at the Asheville Yacht Club, Asheville Shiva IPA is a deeper copper colored brew with a nice head of medium off white bubbles. Nose is green grass and grapefruit. Taste is more citrus with hints of mown grass, and a nice dry hoppy finish. Decent carbonation. Nice IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a can. Dark orange in color. Slightly hazy, with plenty of carbonation and a foamy white head. Aroma of wheat and faint grassy/citrusy hops. Taste is lightly malted, sweet, mild hops, and big time bitterness that lingers. Seems a bit off balance. No detection of alcohol. Okay beer.
