Panzuriel (1296) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2013
On tap at urban bar in Knoxville tn. Firewater pours a hazy apple juice rich amber. Nose is crisp combo of floral hop scents. Taste is a fair amount of good bitters on the front that mellow through the mid taste. Finishes nicely. A good medium strength IPA.

Orange color with nose of sweet citrus. Malts add to that sweetness. Malty taste overpowers but some bitterness on the finish.

kathouse (996) - Nevada, USA - JUL 26, 2014
On tap at Carolina Brewing in CLT airport. Light and hazy gold with a moderate foam. Pine and citrus aromas that are a little underwhelming but pleasant. Light body, good carbonation, moderate bitterness. Malt sweetness was a little off balance but this was still middle of the road example of the style. Hop flavor seemed low. Finish was slightly bitter.

Keg @ Catawba during RBWG. Hazy light amber pour with a small head. Mango and pacific tropical fruits. Sea grass. Mild caramel. Honeyed cereal accents. More mango. A bit of pine cone and salt. Slightly bitter finish. Light body, nimble. Solid.

12 oz. can from Bruisin’ Ales, Asheville, NC. Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, wet grass, and damp pale malt. Good citrus and floral hop bitterness with a strong malt backbone to keep this balanced. Good overall.

UDBeernut (1671) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Had at the clt airport, pours copper, some light passes, minimal head and lacing. Nose of cat piss, pine. Taste has moderate bitterness that fades, some pine and more cattiness. Mild sweetness behind. More or less crap.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
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.

@ 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.

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.

asheft (2499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
[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.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
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.
