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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 On tap at Pisgah. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Citrus, hoppy, slight grass, slight green hop aromas. Citrus, green hop flavors with a malty sweet flavor in the background. Re-rate 11/06/14 - A lot more solid IPA than my previous rating gives credit for. Good hop-forward IPA
