Strong hop character. Good aroma. This bottle foamed a lot, but it may have been stored wrong.

eRock_2013 (333) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2014
A nice relatively easy-drinking IPA, pours a very attractive pale ruby appearance with good lacing, could pass for an amber ale based on looks. Smell is fresh and features both the piney hop and malty notes. The flavor itself is a lighter-bodied west coast hoppiness with a thin malty background. Hint of caramel present. Toasty and tasty, although it seems there is some off-flavors in the finish. Bitterness is a bit sticky. Still pretty good overall, and it's lighter weight makes it more sessionable. Not sure if I'd drink this again, but I'm glad I tried it. Depot Street brewing is on the right track.

Itzjerm (1736) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Way over carbonated almost a gusher. Flavor is off grain malt light hop. Not impressed. Hopper away from this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (14334) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle shared at RBWG 2014 Late Night tasting - Asheville. Pours clear, deep gold with a foamy, white head. Tasty beer with light hop presence, some leaves and citrus. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mild bready malts to finish with restrained citrusy hops. OK.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, and resin hops, pear and apple esters with biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with light malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

davidajensen (206) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Seems like more of a pale than an IPA. The hops don’t seem to fresh. The finish is dull and everything tastes muted.
