COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A statement from Appalachia. American Chinook, Citra, and Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest shine in our first West Coast style IPA. A sturdy malt bill frames hints of tropical fruit, lemon rind, grapefruit and dank hops notes. Brilliant and golden in color. expect a dry, resiny, citrusy finish.

Pours up clear amber with a white head, thats gone quickly. Aroma is a mix of hops and malt sweetness with a little bread. Moderate hops balance a big pale malt. Finish is bitter sweet.

This beer pours a dark, cloudy gold with a medium white head. It is quite pungent in hops with a clean, crisp, fruity undertone. It has a very nice bitter/sweet balance. I really enjoy the light body and just slightly creamy, sticky texture. This is a very good IPA. It is definitely one I’ll be getting again and again.

draft that poured a murky orangish color with white head. nice aroma of malt and hops, citrus and funk on the the nose...when I say funk I mean earthy hop. the flavor does the same nice solid malt backbone with a citrus and earthy hop flavor kind of sticky but still quite drinkable and good. kind of surprised I hadn’t had this one yet but do like it...and for $2 a pint it was a steal.

Enjoyed a pint of this on the rooftop of the Highland brewery in Asheville, with a cool breeze on a sunny Sunday afternoon, absolutely magnificent! Quite the delectable and distinctive West Coast IPA. Aroma is as if standing in a pine tree forest, with lots of fresh hoppy pine resin, some citrus fruit. Taste fills out the aroma notes with a strong hoppy and bitter grapefruit flavor, along with a sweet grainy malt. Citrus notes without the tanginess. Overall quite the delicious rendition of the style, although it's an unashamed palate-crusher with the heavy hop bitterness, which alas is par for the style. That being said, possibly the best West Coast IPA found on the East Coast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle, 4/11/16. Slightly hazy amber, thin fizzy off-white head, decent retention. Aroma of herbal and tropical hops, pale and caramel malt. The taste is herbal, piney, citrus hops and pale malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness. Solid.

Bottle purchased at Buffalo City Jug Shop. Pours copper with white head. Tropical fruit aroma with dank pine resin. Flavor is grapefruit with tropical fruit and finishing with bitter grapefruit zest and pine resin. Lingering bitterness.
