This seems like a pretty ordinary IPA. Nothing wrong with it, but it’s the same everywhere.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is resiny hops caramel malt with a touch of citrus as well. Flavor is a semi-sweet bready malt with a very good citrus bitter finish. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy for me. solid beer

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

BarleyandVine (56) - Stockbridge, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2014
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 (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 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.
