On tap at Mellow Mushroom, Asheville. Mild hop aroma, bit of malt sweetness but overall not much going on in the nose. Medium dark amber clear with no head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Dry bitter hoppy character with a little bit of pale malt sweetness. Big hops finish and after. alexsdad06 (10818) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a large creamy white head. The nose is resiny citrus hops with slightly toasted bready malts. The flavor shows a decent bitterness coming from resiny, mild citrus hops. Toasted bread with hints of caramel with an earthy finish. A decent straight forward IPA from Foothills. drfabulous (8591) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 17, 2011
22 ounce from Weinhaus in Asheville. Malty with some pine and resin. Sweet body and finish. Nice, but maltier than I’d want. steelcitybrew (454) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2011

Bottle. Pour is light copper with a medium white head. Aroma is lighter hop with cookie malt dominating the aroma. Hop notes are light pine and floral with a very faint spice hint. Not too complex but solid. Definitely on the maltier side.

Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Super clear light orange color. Two fingers of creamy white head. Retention is slightly below average and just a touch of lacing is left behind.
3.5 S: Hops are foremost piney with floral and citrus complementing. Fair amount of caramel on the malt front. Not particularly strong, but pleasant.
3.5 T: Follows the nose for the most part. Light to moderate bitterness. Piney hops with grapefruit and orange. Slightly earthy as well. Malts are earthy and a bit "hamster-y." Again, caramel sticks out. Toward the dry end, but enough malt to keep it interesting. Refreshing.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Smooth and slightly creamy, but could be more so.
3.5 D: This is a pretty "standard" IPA. It’s good, but tastes like so many others that it doesn’t have much of an identity. Still worth drinking though.
Serving type: bottle

Pours amber with a white head. Smells resiny with some sweet citrus undertones and spicy hints. Tastes of caramel, some citrus, resiny, with a semi sweet finish. smith4498 (3674) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle at Maltzilla’s tasting. Pours dark orangish color with off white head. Aromas of citrus and some pine with very little malts. Grapefruit and other citrus flavors with some pine and a hint of caramel. Medium body with average carbonation. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2011
This starts with a nice strong blast of pine and citrus. It pours a clear amber, with a two finger white head. A bit heavy with the Simcoe, but a good blast of hop flavors, there is very little malt noticeable in this one. Nice long bitter finish. This is a good solid IPA, but they could back off some of the Simcoe a bit. beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Draft at Asheville Brewing. Orange with a thin off white head. Scent is caramel, grass and citrus. Taste is same with some bready notes. So nice I grabbed a bomber to compare.
