COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Blowing Rock IPA pours a copper color through the incorporation of 2- Row and other specialty malts. Balanced hop additions provide evident but not overwhelming hop bitterness, while the finishing and dry hops offer an elegant hop complexity. Citrus and floral notes are balanced with a slight hint of caramel maltiness. This beer is full-bodied and flavorful, yet thoughtfully integrated.

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.

cheap (5154) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Thicker viscous attractive appearance. Nice head. Mild sweet candy perfume aroma. Taste is big giant dull club on the tongue. So medicinal and mouth coating, almost like aged green grapefruit rinds mixed with handsoap. Nasty rude and so terribly on style. Ignore the numbers. I would say this is too far into the imperial IPA style, heheh. No lager lover in his right mind would get anywhere near this stuff. This certainly much more than the 6% listed here.

From a 12 oz can. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Herbal nose. Grassy flavors. Bitter finish.

firemarshal (203) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Draught. Clear amber. Bready, malty, brown sugar aroma. Flavor is malty up front sweet flavor with some peppery hop flavor at the finish. Smooth drinker. Can't wait to see what else this brewery produces in the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a can. Nice pour with a decent head. Sniff test left a little to be desired. Not quit as hoppy as I like, but not a bad beer by any means.

weihenweizen (2952) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2015
12 oz. aluminum can poured into a cup thanks to Brewpublik. Hazy light orange with medium off-white head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is herbal hops and bitter finish.

beerme31 (632) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Can. Pours clear copper thin off-white lacing. Floral and pine hop aroma. Light sweet taste. Light body, texture on the thin side, mouthfeel fills out with the hop burst. Decent IPA overall if not a little thin.

Garbageman (486) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2015
From can. Pours an orange color with white head. Aroma was all citrus with oranges, pineapple and pine. Taste followed. Could use a touch more malt to balance. But a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1724) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2015
12 oz can The ale poured an attractive clear Amber with a large frothy head and lacing. The aroma of light grapefruit rind greets you. The taste is more citrus bitterness but balanced with the pale malts. The IPA has a medium body with above average carbonation. It could be the can but this ale was super frothy when pouring. This nice ale for Holden Beach in July.

bubbleflubber (2144) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2015
From the brewery, this pours an orange-amber into the glass with a sudsy head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is of light caramel, light citrus and light woody pine notes. Flavors are similar - caramel, woody notes, light muddy citrus, zest and peel notes, and finishing with a lightly peppering pine. The lingering finish is nice, but overall contributes to a medium-bodied, semi-round mouthfeel. The palate feels a bit unsubstantial for the style. Were there a bit more complexity here, it could be a very nice entry in the IPA category. As it stands, it feels more like a decent pale ale than an IPA. I still wouldn’t kick it out of my glass. It goes well here in the first days of spring.
