4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Now this is what an IPA should be about. A bold and biter taste that takes a hold of you and demands your attention. The hops come out in full flavor and I love it. I would definitely recommend this beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Blowing Rock IPA is an almost clear beer with a very small head of tiny bubbles. The beer itself is a rich amber hue. nose is sweet malt a mild hint of mown hay and honey. Taste is dry with a moderate amount of hops that broaden a bit on the back end. A decent IPA.

Nice initial taste. Good color. Ok finish. Not big west coast style, nice alternative.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a lowing orange amber with a lot of carbonation streams. Aroma of toast, orange/citrus and caramel; touch of sweetness. Flavor was robust, but a bit lacking in quality. Earthy with some sweetness and caramel. A bit messy, but palate was enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber pour with minimal white head. Boozy, musty, ripe banana aroma. Carbonation is intense, drying mouthfeel. Some caramel undertones. Strikes me as more of a bipa, but they call it an american ipa so I will rate as such.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden coloured body with a tiny, white head. Aroma of very light hop pellet notes with some very mild malt and pretty much nothing at all. Light-bodied; Sharp hops up front fade to a cardboardie malt, some very light sugars and seemingly nothing worthwhile. Aftertaste shows some more of the hops, a hint of the earthy and mild malt and no sugars nor alcohol to speak of, just some light herbal flavours. Overall, a pretty bad IPA - with not much hop bitterness at all and more cardboard notes than anything else. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle from a beer sampler pack on 01-March-2013 at a friend’s house in Odenton, Maryland.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is truly a terrible beer. A disgusting malt tang with messy hops. I honestly can’t believe they allowed this to be bottled and sold.
Only positive- a pretty orange. Very thin head though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a small off-white head. Nose is fairly hoppy with some floral notes to it. Taste has some nice bitterness to it, but it has just a hint of a muddled unclean flavor. OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit and a little pine. Taste was lighter than I expected but followed through with the aroma.
