Best Beer at the Asheviile,NC brewing in our opinion...and we tried ALL the IPA’s...now we just have to have a distributor in VA to enjoy it!!! We brew our own and grow our own hops as well, and it gets an "A"!!!

Pours orange from tap with a thin white head. Big floral notes on nose. Massive burst of hop flavor on the tongue almost sweet in it’s intensity with a nice floral dry finish. One of the best IPA’s I’ve had in my brief experience.

HighlanderOne (1010) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2011
On tap at Wedge. Fruit cocktail aroma. Orange amber thin head. Taste sensation of floral grapefruit hops with wild cherry notes and something that I couldn’t identify but I liked. Bold, raw feel. Sensational beer

Tap @ Wedge Brewing Co. Light orange color. WOW. Flavor is an earthy tannin, apricot pit, Pale malts and crystal. All finishes with a bold kick in the nuts bitterness. A big time palate killer. Sweet, lingering hop bitterness. Unique BOLD, Solid. Aroma has a musty malt character. Lots of minerals in the nose, salty. This is the Best IPA in all of Asheville! <27 Oct 09>

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.

DrinkEmUpJones (1063) - Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Very cloudy orange with light white lacing. Light aromas of grapefruit and grass. Medium-bodied palate is very balanced and slightly oily, which takes the edge off the bold hops. This is dead-on what an IPA should be.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2008
The aroma was citrusy and grassy with a resinous presence of dry hopping. Some light caramel sweetness was notable and a somewhat earthy and floral hop was notable with a moderate level of esters. The beer arrived lightly hazy golden with a low white lasting head which laced the glass. The flavor was citrusy, grassy and resinous hops and the bittering was substantial and lasting. Some caramel malt was present, but the balance was decidedly toward bitter. The finish was dry and the citrusy hop flavor lasted long into the aftertaste. The body was just above medium with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy texture on the palate. A very good IPA with a nice lingering hop presence. Pint at Wedge.

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.
