11/27/13. On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Asheville. Amber orange pour with a small frothy khaki head. Mild aroma, grainy, husky malts with some caramel and biscuit aspects, very mild hops - touches of floral and citrus. Mild flavor as well, again malty with barely a touch of floral and citrus hops. Meh.

Draft in a flight at the brewery. Poured a golden color with a fairly small head. Nice level of hoppiness all around that makes for a pleasant drink.

Draft at the source. Hazy amber color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of grapefruit taste is tropical fruit, moderate bitterness. Nice.

Draft to pint at Pisgah. Looks good; deep orange with ample head. Smells solid; hoppy and malty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthful. Pretty good.

Originally reviewed: 2/13/10. Bottle poured into a pint glass. Enjoyed this while watching the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics. Pours a slightly murky dark orange/gold with a nice frothy white head on top. Superb retention; left lots of sticky lace and sip rings on the glass. Scents of mild floral tones, some light citrus, and earth. Not that "hoppy" of a nose. Good smooth body with a subtle carbonation kick on the back end. The flavors in this beer are pretty muted. Nothing really stands out. Some mild citrus like orange zest, moderate bitterness, and a light honey-sweet finish. This was a good beer, no doubt, but it is not in the upper tier for this style. Itís organic though, so itís got that going for it. Not bad.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
The beer smells strongly of hops, both floral and citrus varieties. The pour is a translucent brown, somewhat hazy. The taste is floral hops with a good malt balance. The beer is medium plus body with lower than usual carbonation and a strong alcohol presence.

On draft at Mellow Mushroom, Asheville. Poured hazy copper with skimpy head and spots of lace. Mild citrus flavor with dry finish. Sessionable. Good brew.

Growler sample. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hop and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
