Keg @ the brewpub. Slightly hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma is somewhat subdued. Caramelized orange peel and singed grass . Pretty strong sweet flavor. Caramel candy, sugar. Growing bitterness on the finish. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2015
4oz on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving great, full sheets of lace. Very nice grapefruit hop, very zesty, assertive, and graepfruity. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly slick. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, mild alcohol warmth. Works well with the hops. A very nice assertive, potent, IPA. Awesome aroma, but a touch sweet. 50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Clear yellow/orange pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Plenty of floral and grapefruit hop notes here. Good body, balance, and mouthfeel. ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Location: Can at Early Girl, 1/2/15, even the breakfast places in Asheville all have craft beer!

Aroma: The nose is grapefruit, earthy, and floral hop notes, with some bready malts.
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear orange color, with a beige head, and medium lace.
Flavor: The flavor is similar to the nose component-wise, light sweetness, and medium bitter.
Palate: It has a medium body, average carbonation, and a fairly long, dry finish.
If there is one thing you have to appreciate about Asheville it’s how every place you go has local craft beer. I doubt there’s a restaurant/bar/gas station anywhere in this town that only has BMC. Anyway, I’m glad they have craft here, but this isn’t my favorite local IPA. Still, you could do a lot worse, and I love canned craft, so cudos for that.
Average IPA. 3rd IPA I've had from Asheville. For all the hype I've heard about it I'm coming away a little underwhelmed.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, orange peel, faint tropical fruits, and citrus and floral hops.
