gsportbar (1) - waynesville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2014 does not count
On tap at the Tipping Point Tavern in Waynesville. Pours a golden honey into the glass, with an initial head that dissipates to nothing. The nose is of pine. Flavors concentrate highly on bitters and feel a bit under-balanced with supporting malt contingencies. I do pick up grains and lemony citrus with a Fruit Loops sweetness in the mid-palate. A lingering bitter closes the pull. This feels lighter in the body than the traditional IPA, yearning for a bit more substance on the palate to pull it together. For a brand new brewery, it certainly shows promise for a bright future. What he said

This is the kind of brew that is wonderfully refreshing. Bright hop aroma and flavor followed by a good American Pale Ale maltiness. Wow! Bravo Waynesville!

Drake (8029) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Draft at the brewpub, listed at 4.8% on the board. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral, citrus hops, biscuit malts and a bit of caramel. The taste is citrus hops, biscuit and caramel malts. Medium bodied, high carbonation, slight lingering bitterness.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Draft at tavern. Pours yellow with a slight orange tint and a thin white head. Citrus notes on the nose and on the tongue but they fade as the beer warms I get a it of the malt on the finish which is fairly clean. Eh!

Pint at the brewpub. Well, it seems that Tipping Point has decided to brew a Sierra Nevada clone. Not that there is anything at all wrong with that. This is a slightly more intense brew than SNPA, perhaps like their Anniversary Ale. Aroma and flavor match perfectly with clean and even bready malts and hearty, but not explosive, piney hops with light grapefruity hints. It is well balanced and enjoyable to drink.
