3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was a good IPA except for the finish. The taste and finish was a little weak. A little watery needed a little more full body. It is a very easy IPA to drink and I think it is an IPA that people who don’t like the hopper IPAs would like.

Tap at Barley’s in Asheville on 2/3/08: Pours a clear orange bronze with a well-lacing off-white head. Aroma of semi-sweet caramely toasty pale malt and some fresh grapefruity hops. Body starts fairly full and caramely sweet with some toasty notes and fresh piny resiny hop balance. A pretty good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler brought from Morganton to Philly (thanks Pat!) - Pours a rich golden color, slightly reddish with a generous white frothy head. Aroma is more malty and sweet than hoppy - some mild floralness, but not a lot. Flavor hits you with bitterness right away, and then trails off to a nice malty, nutty finish. IMHO, could use more hop aromas, and some more hop character at the finish. Quite drinkable though.
