On tap at Mellow Mushroom Asheville. Served by Snowball. Clear mostly orange color with a thin white head. Nice clean grassy and floral hop aroma with a hint of bready malt. Nice aggressive hop character, but maltier in the finish than I expected. A nice take on the style, even though it was maltier than most.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange, with a small white head. Pretty nice hop aroma, some grapefruit citrus, and mild spice. The flavor had a sharp hop flavor with a decent malt backbone. Just a barely bitter finish, that lingered slightly in the aftertaste. had a decent hop presence throughout. I liked this actually, pretty balanced and solid all around. I liked the stuff I had from this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An amber apperance with a moderate head. The aroma is caramel, oranges, and pine. The flavor is on the sweet side for an IPA but the bitterness comes through on the end. Some caramel, oranges, and grapefruit showing through at the end. Not world class but a good session IPA.
