COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light in body with beautiful bronze finish. This West Coast-style IPA is made with a blend of Nugget and Chinook hops, lending to a strong floral, piney, citrus character. Enjoy a mouthful of serious hop delight. Perfect for the hophead inside us all!

Surprised by the score on this one. It is easily one of my favorite IPAs in WNC. It is a west coast IPA in style and carries with it the expected hop aromas and flavors. Fresher is better obviously. What makes it so great thought is a fantastic malt balance that brings out the hops but doesn’t just play second fiddle like it is yellow seltzer water. It balances well. Drink this beer.

Pour out of a can is golden with a white 1in head. I'm told by my beer guy that this beer was very fresh canned about a week ago. Taste is ok but nothing amazing. Malt sweetness up front a small hoppy bite to finish. More on the pine end then citrus end of the ipa scale.

355 ml can. Clear amber with white head. Smell is hoppy citrus and pine. Taste is balanced caramel sweetness and hoppy pine and citrus. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

bubbleflubber (1918) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft from the brewery, this pours lightly hazed straw-golden with a huge ice cream head that has great retention. The nose is citric and floral. Big citrus notes in the mouth followed by a solid bitter finish. Definitely west-coast inspired, this complements a cigar perfectly. Goes down well in the heat and provides substance and complexity with the active carbonation and medium body. Nice example of a hop-forward "left coast" IPA.

Travlr (14702) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft at the source during RBWG. Hazy amber color, medium white head. Aroma of pear and light pine. Taste has citrus and pine. Decent.

b3shine (6246) - Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Draft to pint at Pisgah. Looks good; a mildly hazy deep golden orange with foamy white head. Smells of bitter hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells with light tropical hop notes too. Average on the palate. A decent IPA.

On tap at Native Kitchen. Suprised rating was so low- to me it’s a decent, crisp, light, summery, clean IPA. Pours hazy with an orange hue- not much head but still appealing. Taste is grapefruit up front with some pine, orange, and slight floral notes. Decent balance- not overly hoppy. Medium carbonation and slightly slick mouthfeel. Good. Solid.

BeerandBlues2 (10531) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Tap at Farm Burger Asheville. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, and herbal hops with biscuit malt and pear esters. Flavor is heavy hops and moderate bitterness, grapefruit, light cracker malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

emacgee (4279) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a soft and cloudy tawny gold with one finger of off white head. Nose shows bready malt and resinous hops with some stone fruit. Round and fruity flavor. Dry and bitter finish.
