Nice aroma--floral hop presence, with Cascade hop presence. Coppery,
malty flavor, solid body, good finish. Easily the best beer of the brewery,
and a fine effort from my own little hometown. ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2004
pours out yellow with a tan colored head. hoppy smell and taste as well as a nice citrus flavor. this beer is pretty damn good, and easily their best beer. the brewers in NC sure can make some pretty damn fine IPAs. nice! sampled at brewgrass 04 on draught. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Really interesting beer. Feels almost like an IPA rather than an APA. Pours a darker golden color with hints of orange to it. Good level of hoppiness to it. Very light and easy to drink. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bomber. Light citrus aroma. Must have mellowed in the bottle. Nice pale ale. Not to hoppy not to bitter. Somewhat sharp finish. Drinkable

Draft sampler at the brewery. This was a very good IPA. Had a slight west coast flavor and just the right amount of pale ale bitterness.

Single hop (Cascade) IPA. In tallikng to the bartender, most likely also single 2 row malt - good. Simple yet flavorful. Typical Cascade aromas of pine and some grapefruit. Good use of hops for bittering, aroma and hop flavor - nicely balanced. Slightly perfumy finish. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2007
on tap-pours a white head and amber color. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops-some bitter, medium malt. OK carbonation. Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Mini Keg courtesy of Degarth. Pours crystal clear light copper with mildly frothy tan head and some cobweb lacing. Nice malty aroma with layers of bread and butter, light roasted malts and some vague hoppiness. The taste is just as malty as the nose with up front roasty caramel and crystal malts. It quickly moves into the butterscotch and buttered bread arena as pine and citrus hop bitterness well up and make a solid appearance. Very tasty. kbutler1 (1381) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle. Poured into a DFH tulip glass a medium copper color with a slight white head. The aroma has a light citrus rind note with some florals. Medium/light mouthfeel. One of the more hoppier pales I have had before. Starts with a light caramel type flavors and then transitions into a hoppy resin citrus rind. Bitterness lingers on. No evidence of the alcohol.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 Orangey Brown, with a thick white head. Piney, spicy aroma. Very earthy, resiney, piney flavor, and a sticky, mouth-coating finish. Very dirty, messy beer, and I like it. Nice effort from Olde Hickory.
