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.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 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.
With Cory and Michelle. Maybe slightly better than I remember but previews review still stands. Decently hoppy but mostly just crushable. Hence the "IPA window". Nice citrus notes in there and not overly dank or resin. Easy.

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.

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!
