COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A wonderful golden straw-colored India Pale Ale we developed using five varieties of grain and five separate massive hops additions.

The aroma is quite hoppy with citrus and grassy hops as well as malt. The appearance is golden with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma but astringently bitter. The palate is average for the style. Overall not a great IPA but very drinkable.

Draught. Towards the end of the night - lots of astringent, medicinal quality where the hops should be. Finish is lots of aspirin. I did not end up finishing this - part of it could be a lack of freshness, but I cant be sure.

swoopjones (6966) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2008
On tap @ the Bier garden, Asheville, NC. Orange copper pour. Citrusy hop aroma. Grapefruit. Malty flavor seems to overpower the bitterness. More of an APA to me

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Cloudy orange with a finger of smooth silky white head. Very dry maltiness. Some caramel then all citrus hopes. Taste is smooth caramel malt, then a light citrus hop finish.

dchmela (2848) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Bottle at the Bier Garden in Asheville. Cloudy copper pour with t in white head. Grassy citrus aroma. Malty body with a bitter earthy hop balance. Not as balanced as I would have liked. Finishes clean with no bitterness in the finish. Decent.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2008
On tap. Amber with a good size head. Aroma of floral and spicey hops. Lingering bitterness. More like a pale ale to me.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Shared with me by DrBayern (Thanks Matt). Poured a nice coppery orange, forming medium foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, floral spices and ocean water. The flavour was of the same, finishing with a nice malty character.

On tap at Ruby’s in Asheville. Light copper/amber pour; almost no head. Grainy and metallic hoppy nose; similar on the tongue, with quite a bit of bite. Didn’t seem super fresh. Okay, but not great.
