Outstanding, especially for a brew pub beer! I’m probably a bit partial, as The Wedge is my favorite hometown hangout, but damn, they do some good beers. Took home my first growler of this the other night, and man, it was sooo grassy. I mean this in the best way. It was like diving into a bowl of hops. And then coming up into a syrupy surface of malt. Nice, nice, nice.

Draft at Thirsty Monk in Asheville, 6/26. Liked it. Didn’t get to Wedge, but did enjoy the beers that I had on tap downtown. Give this one a go.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Growler. Thanks for picking this up, Chris. Deep orange amber with no head. (Note: The beer was a few days old and had been opened by the time I drank it.) Pretty nice nose, flavor and body. Definitely english in style and one of the better examples I’ve sampled. Would love to have this on cask.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Clear orange with a sturdy off white head and excellent lace. Hoppy nose with lots of citrus and some spice over a bed of caramel Medium body and carbonation, slightly resinous, and quite dry. Good balance between caramel sweetness and the hop bitterness. NIce IPA.

agl108 (786) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2009
On draft at Barley’s Taproom, Asheville. Poured amber with a small off-white head. This beer was intriguing, almost a hybrid of English and American IPAs. Sweet malty base with a west coast style citrus flavor.

This is a quality IPA that some of the bigger boys would be proud to produce. This was fresh at the brewery and maybe the better for it. The hoppiness brought back fond memories of England.
