3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at the Lobster Trap in Asheville. An amber pour into the glass has a wispy eggshell head that reduces, leaving window-wash lacing. The nose is light floral. Malt accents mingle with citrus notes underneath an aggressive peppery dry-hopping. I wish it had a little more complexity, as it comes across a bit unilateral in the hop flavor profile. Easy to drink, the carbonation keeps the body active and alive on the palate. A touch of minerals to the lingering finish. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Lobster Trap. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops. Flavor of caramel malt, light jam with a bitter hops finish. More bitter hops and malty notes > fruits/citrus so perhaps an unconventional IPA. Decent though.

Smells good - lots of pine (Mr. Clean is referenced in notes, but I think I meant Pine Sol. Either way, I meant it as a compliment). Nice malty caramel, as well. Seems a bit heavier than I prefer, though. But I did enjoy it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Lightly hazed, medium copper body with a slowly settling white head.
Smell: Pale malts in the fore with traces of sliced bread and light caramel, slowly yielding towards the more aromatic hops with their fruity, tropical notes.
Taste: Standard pale malts supported by a bit of sweet caramel. Well-rounded hop flavors present, with plenty of grapefruit and tangerine with a staunch resinous, grassy backing. Moderate bitterness. Hint of mango emerging in the flavor as it warms. A pinch of warming alcohol on the soft, bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A smooth, tasty, well-built IPA. Once we started slowly ordering food, it helped to cut through the richness of the Lobster House’s lobster bisque.
