3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Draft in a flight at the brewpub. Decent hoppiness to the those, but I found the taste to be a lot maltier than I like in an IPA and not very hoppy.

Fresh growler to pint. Looks good; deep orange with nice head and carbonation. Smells pretty good too; a nice balance of hops and malt. Tastes much like it smells with nice balance and a solid mouthfeel. Good beer - and as fresh as it gets!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Poured copper with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were piney and grapefruity hops, some caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel. Solid, but the least interesting beer I tried at the brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a hazy orange hue. Smelled citrusy. First impression of the taste was primarily lemon. Eventually that faded and only bitterness was left. They used a lot of hops, but I think it lacked much of the character I’d expect from an IPA

On tap at the brewery. Slightly hazy copper color with a small white head on top. Bright and fruity hop aroma with some sweet malt and cereal grain notes. Orange and apricots on the flavor. Dry, earthy, and balanced; tasty yet not overly bitter. Medium body with average carbonation. Solid IPA.
