Had on tap at Cinebarre in Asheville with Walter. Not my favorite IPA, but easy enought to drink. Pours a straw color with a hint of orange and decent head. Definitely drinks crisp- has some good hops in there and almost a lager-like quality to it. Finishes dry. Some unexpected IPA flavours in there but overall decent. Not a hop bomb so pretty easy to drink on it’s own.

[on tap at CLT airport] Creamy grapefruit and strawberry hops aroma buttressed by some malt sweetness and a faint pine accent. Clear dark gold under a lasting, white, flannel blanket that leaves lace on the glass. Flavour is bitter hops and spicy melanoidins up front, but yields to a nice strawberry-pin hops. Assertive bitterness balances a pleasant sweet, light caramel. Medium body, medium carbonation, spicy finish.

Draft at the Asheville tasting room. Pours a cloudy gold color with a finger of eggshell colored head that laces the glass. Notes of straw, grass, florals, and light citrus. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, bitter mouthfeel. Good IPA.

@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Clear medium orange amber, full head cover, mottled batches of lace. Taste is malt on the opening, pine hops soon after. Mostly hops run the rest of the way, although the malt is barely present behind everything right to the very end. Uncomplicated, easy enough to drink, but not particularly interesting.

[ Tap ][ Catawba Valley ][ 8oz ][ Pint ][ Free ][ 2/7/14 ]
>> Thanks bros for the share. Pours hazy orange gold, excellent rocky foam. Great hop oil derived retention. Nose is muted, not much. Taste is juicy, bitter, fresh orange. Slight paper finish. Not bad.

DrSilverworm (5038) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Very smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Medium body. Good, piney citrusy hop aroma. Nice lightly biscuity malt. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. Smooth, assertive IPA.

On tap @ new tasting room with jcnielsen. Pours a hazy golden appearance with a white head. A bit of citrus and sort of corny. Kind of bitter. Lemon. Least favorite here.

Draft at Carolina Beer Company in CLT. Poured a clear, bronze-orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some nice toasted malts, sweet residual notes, with grapefruit hops. Flavor was clean, easy to drink creating a nice balance between the malts and pine-like hops. Very easy to drink, quite an enjoyable brew.
