Named for Black Mountain's highest summit, GreyBeard is an innovative IPA extracting its bitterness from massive doses of whole leaf hops utilizing a unique hop-back system to infuse extra lupulin resins into the body and aroma. Bold and adventurous, GreyBeard takes you to the top of the mountain.

This is not a bad beer and I'd get again. If the rating is low it's only because it's not a pretty looking beer and, try as I might, couldn't get a good smell from it. Recommended by Good Bottle on Remount in Charlotte. It has a decent malt hop taste to it, a little more malty, but mixed well and smooth in the mouth. Maybe a little thin in flavor, but a good, standard IPA. If they could add a touch more hops and make it into a double, it could be something special. Appreciate the local brewery and will try more.

L: Pours gold with a slight haze under a ½” rapidly dissipating white head.

S: Not a big aroma. Some fruit, spice and citrus, light malts, biscuit and perfume.

T: Has a malty start joined by tropical fruit and citrus. Has moderate to moderately low malt, moderate hop flavors and moderate bitterness. The fruit flavors increase as it warms and become more tropical. The beer achieves a nice balance between fruit, malt and bitterness.

F: Medium light body and medium high carbonation.

O: A very refreshing, easy to drink beer.

Look: Don't know, drank it from the can.

Smell: It has a light aroma.

Taste: Not too hoppy or bitter, this is a fairly mild IPA. It is more on the fruity side of the IPAs I've had. Easy drinking for a 6.9%.
