Tap @ brewery. Orangey with thin dissipating head. Dank weedy, light cat piss, and a faint perfume- plus I almost get a meaty aroma. Bitter and a little perfumey. More bubbly feeling than some IPAs.

had on tap at the brewery. a solid ipa. somewhat suprised at the rating of 95. think this is a decent, solid ipa but was by no means blown away. definitely the right color, nice aroma and balanaced all the way through. good maltiness to it- hops are there but not as much as I would like. sort of lacking the hoppy finish that the best ipa’s have mastered. some would say balanced but to they are playing it a bit safe with this one. appealing to the masses- can definitely see why it’s their most popular brew. very nice way to wash down the complimentary bowls of peanuts. wish they offered a flight so could have tasted them all - was intrigued by the hemp brown ale on tap.

Growler thanks to Bryan at Westbrook! Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Sweetish aroma with citrus and earthy hops. Similar sweet flavor with citrus and earthy hop bitterness at the end.

Kinz (3282) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Beer 22 Asheville trip. Poured a light clear orange, nice head. Aroma was, well, quite hoppy, citric and earthy. Flavor was balancing caramel accented malts, and a bracing hop finish, surprisingly floral and grassy in nature. A well constructed IPA, although the hop profile wasn’t my favorite in the world.
