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

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

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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!
