T’was a nice little brewery in downtown ashville with live bluegrass and pool tables at the bar upstairs. Nice 12oz bottles from my road trip down there. Tasty oily hops with a light body. Good session ipa from the east coast.

sloth (2504) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Small white head, good retention and a lace that lasts the whole ride. Pale blond brew thats lightly hazy. Floral aromas, citrus, melons and a touch of rubber to boot. Body is light, a bit crisp for an IPA. Gentle, floral and light citrusy hop flavors with a light toasty maltiness. Finish is almost dry. A quiet IPA. Thanks to SpringsLicker for the trade.

I think this beer is a bit better than a 3.2. Pours very gold with a good sized creamy white head. Smell is creamy and floral hops. Flavor is exactly the same...not grassy bitter hops...but sweet creamy citrus. Mouthfeel was very smooth and fuller bodied than an average IPA.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a billowy white head. Has a wheaty nose and not much florality. Interesting mix of fruit and hops on the palate. A very light IPA with an interesting taste. Not a hopheads dream, but enjoyable (I think?)

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Pours a pale,pale golden with thin white head. Nose is faint with spicey hops and a very subtle sweetness. Taste is thin and citrusy with a mild hop bitterness. I had this a while back and remember it being a lot better.

thebirdshow (27) - Burlington, North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2006
A golden yellowish beer with a slight haze in appearance. A fresh fruity floral smell with a hint of hops. Medium in body with a bitter finish common to an IPA. A slightly bitter after taste and overall sort of light.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2006
A yellowish/orange appearance with a moderate head. The aroma is apricots and peaches with a slight perfume presence. The flavor is quite good but rather mild with some more peaches showing through than anything. Some oranges and grassy hops showing through. The aftertaste is where the bitterness shows up. Overall I like it!

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Bottle, Not a huge hoppy nose of grapefruit that usually accompanies AIPA. Nice potpurri spice and earthy elements in a solid malt background.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Bottle. Poured a golden color with a small white head. Grapefruit citrus in the aroma but also some earthy notes and like a medical alcohol swab pad smell. Nice pine, spices, and citrus in the flavor. Light bodied, lively carbonation, and an IPA bitter ending. Very enjoyable.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Toasted malt aroma with some citrus and slight iced tea. Hazy straw in color with a fluffy white head. Some lime in the flavor, straw - like a belgian golden, dry finish. Very light in body. Not a bad brew. Call it a pale and people would rave, as an IPA it is a bit thin. Thanks Blackie.
