Keg @ Wedge during RBWG, Asheville. Amber? Pour with a small head. Very sweet nose. Accents of caramel and fruity esters. Oranges, pear fruit salad. The taste has some herbal hop bitterness. Dank. Very sweet concentrated fruits. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Draft at Wedge during RBWG. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, floral hops, toasted bread, mild caramel, a bit soapy, biscuits, just something missing from this.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 On draft. Beautiful rich copper color. A close cousin on Green Flash?s West Coast, same citrus hop bite and toasty chocolate malts. More tangerine on the finish. Superb.

phaleslu (6295) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Draft in a taster at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange color with a tiny white head. Notes of citrus fruits, tea, florals, grass, soap, and caramel malts. Light-bodied, with a resinous mouthfeel - though very clean - and moderate carbonation. Nice IPA, and I’m normally not big on the more English style.

Draft during RBWG bus tour. Poured a good looking rich dark gold with an average sized foamy mostly white head. Aroma and flavor of citrus, grains, toast and a hint of molassess sweetness. Overall a good IPA.

Pours orange and hazy. Very very light and thin white head that faded to a film. Standing at the bar with a few locals. Salty peanuts everywhere. nose is hop citrus, sticky, fruity, and some dank. resiny and sweet malty flavors. very grassy and fresh. pretty decent IPA.

Taster on tap at Wedge during RBWG. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Good thicker splotchy lace. Nice head retention. Caramel malt, bruised citrus fruit. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry. Moderate sweet taste. Alright, kind of malty sweet IPA

rondphoto (1836) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 14, 2014
on tap @ Wedge Brewing --- Head and lace disappear after a couple of minutes. Light hazy, very still orange amber brew. Taste is caramel malt that pushes medium hops ahead of it until the bitter crashes over in the finish. The hops then quickly disolve to reveal a little caramel again at the back end. Solid IPA.

deyholla (6520) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2014. Pours a clear amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of pine and dankness with an earthy grain backbone. Flavor has more earthy grain with a bit of grapefruit and musty pine.
