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 (1198) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, 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>

UPDATED: APR 11, 2016 On draft. Beautiful rich copper color. A close cousin on Green Flash?s West Coast, same citrus hop bite and toasty chocolate malts. More tangerine on the finish. Superb. (Update in July, 2015: Malt is big caramel, like two-row crystal. Wonder if the malt bill changed?)

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.

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.

Hazy copper color. Minimal head. Resinous, slightly sweet hop aroma. Great balance. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming. Well made.
